I weighed in this morning showed a .5 lb. loss from last week’s weigh in (which I had skipped…). I had a gain from 2 weeks ago. Yesterday was not a good day. Lots of emotional eating.
I’m debating not weighing in more than once at work and once at home per week. I’m still thinking about it.
I know my biggest problem right now is stress management. A post on that at a later date!
For now… I just want to move on.
Today was another snow day, so I got to work from home! This was a good thing because I woke up at 2 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep. Took me a couple of hours of tossing and turning. So I slept in 1.5 hours later than usual—skipping my morning run. But I think it was good to let my joints rest since I’m just getting back into running again.
Note: My food is not 100% clean and I am aware of that. I am only buying clean food (for the most part), but still using up what’s in the house!
For breakfast, I had a slice of Ezekiel toast with cashew butter and a sliced banana. I also had egg whites with swiss and turkey along with a glass of skim.
I had to laugh at myself when someone left a comment that I could just cut the banana length wise and it would fit perfectly on my toast. I had never even thought about it. lol However, I tried it and it was just too messy for me. So I like my slices!
Speaking of the turkey, I picked up this “clean” lunch meat. It’s very low in WW points but a little expensive for my tastes…
While working, I had my coffee:
I finally decided that I cannot live without my coffee creamer, so I bought the natural stuff.
Here are the ingredients:
Compared with the regular coffee creamer:
The natural stuff isn’t clean, but it’s better than the alternative.
On my break, I ate a KIND bar.
And had more coffee:
I Love Love Love my Keurig.
I didn’t know what to make for lunch, so I went with leftover Progresso 80 calorie soup.
A spinach, strawberry and almond salad with lite poppy seed dressing:
And 2 clementines:
And since I didn’t have much protein at lunch, I was hungry on my last break. I ate 1/2 cup of cooked oatmeal with cocoa powder and stevia mixed in. YUM!
And more coffee. It’s really not that bad when you only drink 10 oz. at a time.
That got me through the afternoon! The day went really quickly because I helped with coverage for people who didn’t make it to work because of the snow storm.
And then it was my turn to clean up the mess…and it was still snowing! I looked online and I’m pretty sure we ended up with over 15” of snow! And only 1-3 had been predicted…amazing.
I look all kinds of gorgeous out there in my mismatched clothes, men’s gloves, and a coat that I wore at 288 lbs. haha It’s a very warm Columbia jacket. I don’t want to spend too much money on a good coat until I lose all of my weight.
I tried to take some pics, but they didn’t turn out so well.
The snow was literally up to my knees in some spots. I ended up snow blowing all 3 stalls and some sidewalks. Our wonderful neighbors did the major sidewalk for us…they are so nice!
Whew! That is hard work lugging that big snowblower around. I am BEAT.
I was pretty happy to come inside to a slow cooker meal.
I ate this on top of lettuce. I added a little 0% Greek yogurt.
And, because I wanted some comfort food after being out in the cold, I had a slice of Ezekiel bread with pumpkin spice cream cheese.
Yum—I am going to miss that when it’s gone. So delicious.
And then I had clean eating chocolate pudding—0% Greek yogurt with cocoa powder.
So there’s my day! I plan on hunkering down and staying warm tonight. It feels like Thursday—I wish it were!
I have to go into the office tomorrow—sadly. I wish they would get all of the technical issues fixed so I can be home on a regular basis again!
How was your Wednesday?
