Today has kind of been a bad day in a lot of ways. Tons of temptations today – both in foods that presented themselves to me and feelings that I had that made me want to make bad decisions. However I didn’t give in, ate my planned food and persevered. It was rough and painful and it made me cranky to deny myself what I wanted but I worked through it and I’m sitting here at the end of the day within my calorie goals and with hope.
I was cranky leaving the house because I didn’t plan my time wisely and I left without eating a proper breakfast. I had a meeting I couldn’t be late for and I ate this on the way. In no way was I fulfilled or satisfied after eating this cereal on the run. Boo boo boo!
I did indulge and grab lunch while I was out and about today. I made a very wise choice though and checked nutritional information for Firehouse Subs before I stopped and got myself a sandwich. I thought ahead, researched the nutritional content and realized that it could work for my daily calories so I did it.
I did bypass the mayo on the sandwich even though honestly I still wanted it. I don’t care what I learn about mayo or how bad it is for you I still want it on every sandwich. I never get it though – only mustard. I also didn’t get chips. Win!
No snack today – this lunch held me over very well and I was satisfied until dinner. I did make one of my favorite dinners so looking forward to that helped.
Dinner was amazing and it filled me up. It was nice to sit back after this meal and feel satisfied. I have to remember to take my time eating and concentrate on what I’m doing and not let my mind wander. In doing so I forget that I’ve eaten and I don’t satisfy my brain and it plays tricks on me all night long saying I’m hungry, etc.
I had enough calories left over for the day to have a couple of oat cakes and a cup of hot tea. I ate this while putting together some marketing materials for work.
It was a difficult day and things just weren’t going my way today so I’m really glad it’s over. I did take the day off from working out to rest today after 5 days of difficult workouts. I’m ready to get back to the gym tomorrow – that is a very good feeling!
Gotta watch that fat but otherwise a very very good day!
