It’m on day six of “Attack” and while I’m not having any trouble sticking to the parameters of the food plan I am, this morning, insanely hungry for no understandable reason.

I’ve had my oat bran. I’ve had two eggs. I’ve had my water. I’m drinking my tea.

Yet my stomach is actually growling from hunger.

Maybe it’s a clue that my period is coming. Who knows.

So, the reality is that I’m going to eat more today than I did yesterday and probably more than I will tomorrow. But I will stick to the food plan and it will be ok.

I used to let days like this either panic me, be an opportunity to indulge, or result in feelings of deprivation. For today, I’m just going to try to keep myself feeling satisfied from the acceptable choices.

This too shall pass.
