First, let me celebrate, that my weight is down yet another pound!! This morning the scale said 162.8, and I’m still feeling great! Please bear with me though, today has been a super-busy day, and its not over yet so this post may be a bit brief.
I did not take any new photos of my food today, because everything that I ate was stuff that I have had before, but here it is in a nutshell:
So, that is a strawberry shake at around 7, a cinnamon raisin bar at about 8:30 (the only reason I had them so close together is because I was on my way to work and I knew that once I got there, I wouldn’t have time to eat for awhile), then at about 11:00 I had the peanut butter bar, in the car, on my way home from work at about 4:30 I had the onion mustard sticks, at about 6 I had the salmon and spinach lean and green meal that I made on Sunday, and after I’m done writing this, I will have a chocolate shake. Everything was good – and honestly, I was so busy today, I really didn’t have time to think about feeling hungry. I had plenty of energy all day, and even though I was on my feet a lot, I felt fine.
Today is the first day since I started this that I have been really, really busy – and actually, the structure of this plan really supported me in staying on track even though I was super-busy because I have the option of choosing meals that are very portable and quick, like the bars. If I didn’t have them, I probably would have gone all day without eating, and my prior eating habits would then have me coming home famished and then WAAAYYYY over-eating, most likely something from take-out or at a restaurant. Instead, although there was kind of a long gap between 11am and 4:30pm where I didn’t eat, once I did, it was still sensible, low-calorie, and filling.
SO – I was up at 5 this morning to study, worked all day, came home to a sick baby and then wrote a proctored pharmacology exam and I’m STILL totally on-track. (thanks, in part to my awesome husband who handled the baby so I could eat my dinner and get a little studying in before my test, and then bathed and put the baby to bed while I wrote my test – thanks honey!!) But I think staying on track through a trying day is something to celebrate today, in addition to the pound I lost! Hooray!
