Day 5 – Five Pounds Eliminated

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!

Thanks for following!
