Man, I had some really intense off-plan food cravings tonight. I had a 40 minute drive home and was mildly hungry. In my mind I decided nothing on-plan sounded appealing at all. I thought through the options, including the junk at home, stuff I could get at the store, and what drive-thrus would be open at this hour. The winner (in my mind) was two eggs over easy with dry whole wheat toast. That, or else two McDonald's hamburgers with a small Diet Coke. I ate those meals in my mind, in detail, on the drive home. I felt like a nutcase. I don't even like Diet Coke! I got home and was really not very hungry at all. I put some potatoes on to boil, made some mint tea, and had a banana. Ended up having mashed potatoes and leftover veggie stew after the banana. I didn't even indulge in any of the off-plan stuff in the house.
It was really quite a vivid little mental trip. I decided this diet was insane, what was I thinking, to imagine I could live on potatoes, rice, oatmeal, and veggies. I was seriously confused by whether this was the voice of sanity, or the voice of addiction. Just the fact that it was so late at night and such a sudden turnaround made me suspect it was not the voice of reason. Anyway I'm glad I ate my normal food and didn't act on whatever the heck was going on.
