Crazy Carb Cravings

I forgot how bad cravings can get when you deprive yourself of something. I did great yesterday with the Carb thing. The only carb I had was an ear of corn on the cob fresh from my in-laws garden.

This was my lunch. It was amazing! The fresh tomatoes are what made it so good.

Sorry about the date on the pic. I just put new batteries in my camera and forgot to change the date.

I even did Level 2 of Jillian Micheal's 30 Day Shred yesterday morning. I forgot how difficult it is but I did feel like I got a good workout when I was done. I think it is going to be good for me to do on the days that I don't meet with the trainer. Maybe that and a nice interval walk.

And back to the Crazy Carb Cravings. Like I said I did so good yesterday and then I went to bed around 10pm last night and all I could think about was the yellow cake with chocolate icing that my Mother-In-Law sent home for my husband and daughter. This is where the crazy part comes in. I layed in bed thinking about that cake (and fighting the urge) until 12:30am. I really tried to fight it and just go to sleep but my body/mind would not go to sleep. I was so tired by that point that I went downstairs and ate a piece of the cake in hopes that I would be able to sleep afterwords. At that point I didn't care about the no carbs. I was just so tired. After I ate the first piece of course I wanted to eat the other two but I stopped my self at one. Then I went back up to bed and right to sleep.

How crazy is that. I couldn't sleep because I wanted a piece of cake. Sometimes I hate the way my body works. I guess it is like any withdrawal. Very difficult.

Has anyone else gone through this? How did you get past the carb withdrawel?

I wonder if that was actually a carb craving, or a sugar craving? All I can say, is that I've been there, done that - and all you can do is move forward! Have a great day today!

Like Shelley, I've been there, done that. Don't worry about it and just move on.

Happy Sunday!

I know that when I was doing a very low carb diet for a month, the first one-two weeks were horrible, but then my body was used to it and it wasn't so bad, I didn't have the cravings. The only thing that worked for me was sugar free gum. Good luck!
