I had a really bad day and a good day in a sense. From the start everything was OK. I got back into my routine of fasting during the day and eating my first meal. Then I thought I would drop by the grocery store to buy a few things. This is where things started to fall apart. First of all I am a bargain hunter. I have to keep in a budget. I can not afford to eat rib eyes everyday. If I could I would. You probably notice for the most part I eat cheaper sources of protein available to me. I good with it. I needed some things besides meat, so I was using my phone app to search the store for specials and e-coupons. I usually make out pretty good, but it takes time. I ended up spending way too much time in the store and began to feel hungry. I tried to hurry up, but did not manage to do so. The bad thing was that ideas start to race through my mind of a quick meal. Don't ask me why, but the thought of buying a frozen pizza came to the forefront. I must be going out of my mind. The carb cravings kicked in full speed and I started once again justifying a quick carb loaded meal or snack. As I started to the meat department I noticed a sign for flat iron steak at $1.99 lb. This steak is usally around $6.99 to $8.99 a pound. That did the trick. I grabbed the last 2 steaks and asked the counter person for more. He told the price was reduced to get rid of them and I got the last 2. Then my mind raced on how I was going to cook and eat one of the steaks. When I got home I started to put some things up in the freezer and discovered I had a couple of pork chops hidden away. So I ended up defrosting them in the micro and ate them with some eggs. It is disturbing to me that this happened. I thought I was pretty much on the road of kicking the carb cravings, but now I have to keep my guard up. I avoided disaster and have to keep in mind that I have to take this day by day. That's it for now.
