Staying Accountable

Today I weighed in and gained .2. Bleh. I know where I went wrong and it all occurred over the weekend. I will have a loss next week!

For breakfast, I ate Cheerios with fresh strawberries.

The traditional coffee with creamer while working job #1.

On my break, I had peach Greek yogurt with chia seeds.

I just love those things! And they are very good for you.

For lunch, I ate some of this:

This soup was VERY flavorful and didn’t taste “light” at all. I ate the soup with a side salad (lettuce, tomato, blue cheese) and Triscuits.

I finished it up with an apple and peanut butter.

What can I say, I was super hungry by lunch time!

I took a little time to just rest and relax before getting started on job #2. I love that I can do what I want, when I want with my second job. It just takes a little time management to make sure I get what I need to get done, DONE. And I do just fine. I think I work better independently, at my own pace, and setting my own rules. Who wouldn’t? lol But hey, not everyone can work that way, either! I’m not the type that needs a boss over my shoulder to be motivated to get the job done. Winking smile

I knew today was one of those days that an extra cup of coffee was in order to get through the day. So I tried out my new coffee:

The beans must be roasted in an oil to flavor them. They glistened. It was a very flavorful coffee.

I drank the coffee with FF vanilla creamer.

Today’s job was to review interviews and get some quotes together.

I took a break after the first one and read a few blogs. But knew I better get back at it. I got a couple of hours of work in, accomplished what I wanted to get done and then called it quits.

I spent a bunch of time working on getting airline tickets purchased. I took way too much time looking for the best possible deal only to have hubby come home and question what I was doing. I was so frustrated! But in the end, it all worked out better than I had originally planned. But wow, that can be so frustrating sometimes.

I had to head out and take photos for job #2 and by the time that was done, I was STARVING. So we decided to grab supper out. I ate a taco and we split a small appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip and chips. I didn’t get a picture.

And then I also had a very small piece of cheesecake. No picture. Not my best last night, I’m going to blame it on feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with the whole airfare thing! But I counted the points.

That was my day! It was a long day and I didn’t get this posted last night because I was too tired by the time I got home. So here it is today! Accountability.
