First successful day!

It's almost midnight, which means I made it! I've gone through one whole day without cheating. It was tough, but I did it. It definitely took a lot of willpower. How soon until eating only what I'm supposed to comes naturally again? On and off and on and off for the past few months, I've been driving myself crazy, trying and failing so many times to get back on track. The key word is preparation, preparation preparation. Ok, so Monday I was also prepared and went through the day and did great, then failed spectacularly at dinner time. Today was almost no different, except when hunger and cravings and the evil little voice saying cheat, cheat, cheat struck around 4:30pm, I didn't reach for my wallet, go buy more junk food, and stuff myself silly. I stopped in my tracks and drank some more water, tried to distract myself, then had the snack of hummus and carrots I had prepared last night and ready for today. I even went to the gym after work. It was a short session because the gym was about to close and probably for the best, since I haven't worked out any in months and months and months, but I went, and I exercised, and I made my goal of 10,000 steps today and it feels great. A little sore, mostly great.

That's one more successful day that I've had. Oi. I tend to do well while I'm busy and distracted at work only to fall apart in the evening. Any tips?
