Dinner was very yummy. I had grilled chicken, grilled corn-on-the-cob, and grilled squash and zucchini. It took forever for the all the food to be done and about an hour or so before I ate my dinner I ended up cheating and eating a bratwurst. I didn't have it on a bun or anything, just plain and by itself. I haven't hardly eaten a thing today so I figured it would be ok.
But then I started really craving some root beer. Jeremiah had bought some and I saw them in the kitchen. I decided to pop one open but only had 2 drinks from the can and then put it down and was fine. I am really proud of that I could stop and the craving was over then.
On Friday night I all of a sudden, out of the blue, started craving some chicken fried steak and gravy. I did not give into that craving and it went away, but boy was it a strong sensation/emotion when the craving hit. I have no idea where it came from or what triggered it because it happened when we were driving to get my step-son and we were out in the boonies with nothing around. I didn't see a commercial, or see a restaurant to set me off, it just happened.
The only other craving that I have really had was about 2 weeks ago and I just really wanted something salty. I wanted some popcorn but there was none in the house. I ended up having a few tortilla chips with a little cheese on them. I only had a few and then felt better. I am learning to not totally deprive myself, to go ahead and give in a little, just not go crazy. So, far that is working and I don't feel like I am giving up much so I think this will continue to work.
