These diaries have really helped keep me in line. Knowing that I’m going to have to come here and post all about what I ate all day helps me make better choices. So I think I might keep this up on the weekends. It’s impossible for me to do so during the week, unless I wrote it down in a note book or something. Do you find these interesting to read?
8 AM: For breakfast I ate 1 apricot Kolache, 1 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of strawberries. I started out with just the kolache and the milk and was still hungry. I really wanted another kolache but decided to go with strawberries instead because they’re free and I needed to get some fruit in. So I’m proud of myself for making that good choice. Breakfast was 7 points.
I’m a little bit moody this morning. I’m not quite sure why but I think it’s just realizing that the weekend is pretty much over and it’s back to work AND school tomorrow. I need to make sure my mood doesn’t affect my eating choices today.
12 PM: For lunch I had a whole wheat bun with BBQ beef. We had more left overs to go with it. I had some cheesy potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, and a 1/2 deviled egg. All very small portions again. For dessert I had a little bit of ice cream and a small krispy ball. 15 points total. I knew I’d be able to fit in a smaller supper since I’d be home.
3:30 PM: On our way home I drank 3 cups of water and had 4 pieces of dark chocolate for 2.5 points.
5:30 PM: For supper I had 1 cup of oatmeal with 1 TBS of peach pie filling, 1 slice whole wheat toast with a little bit of peanut butter and water. For dessert I had 1 cup of strawberries. This was a total of 5 points.
After supper I had a cup of diet hot cocoa for free. I still have 1.5 points left for the day. I may use them and I may not, but I will not go over. I’m feeling very satisfied as it is and with all of my eating this past weekend, it may be best if I call it quits for the night.
I have to admit that I am concerned to see what I weigh tomorrow morning vs. what I weighed Wednesday morning before we left for my parent’s house. I can honestly say that I stuck to my points over the weekend- so I MET THAT GOAL! I really had to work at not over eating, but I succeeded points wise. I missed one workout, but I did get one in. I’m looking forward to my 4:30 AM workout in the morning!
