A hungry day

This morning I weighed in for the first time in about a week. My weight was slightly up from the last time I weighed, but manageable. If I stay on track, I can have the weight off by next week. Why is it that I can pack on the weight so quickly? Ugh.

For breakfast, I ate oatmeal with fresh strawberries and skim milk.

I hopped on the bike for 20 minutes, burning 128 calories. It’s something.

While working, I sipped on coffee with natural creamer.

It was another rainy day again! Lots of people have flooded basements. We had probably an inch of water in one basement room—but we don’t keep much in that room, so not a big deal. It always happens when we get a lot of rain.

I was so hungry by my break time, probably due to the lack of protein at breakfast. I ate a mini KIND bar. I think I’ll order the full bars next time—they are more satisfying and worth the calories.

And popped some popcorn with coconut oil.

I always burn it. lol

For lunch, I ate leftover chicken enchilada soup with a slice of Ezekiel toast topped with pumpkin spice cream cheese. I saw this in the store the other day and had to buy it. So good!

I brought a smoothie back to my desk. I used strawberries, fresh mango, and a banana. It was super delicious!

I could not stay awake during the afternoon. It was terrible. My eyes kept closing as I was trying to work! I think it was the rainy weather.

On my break, I ate a corn tortilla with turkey and Swiss on top. I was so hungry and trying not to eat any “binge” type food.

I also ate some dates.

And brought more coffee back to my desk.

That got me through the afternoon.

I am heating up leftover homemade pizza for supper. I’m also going to steam some broccoli. I definitely need more veggies since I am missing my salads lately!

I’ve done pretty well today, although I have been hungry for most of the day! I’m going to end here since I have a busy evening planned—again! I just want to stay home and relax one of these days! Next week should be much more low key, so it’s coming.

Have a great day!


  1. I was exhausted a bit ago while watching the kids ride bikes. It is overcast here, but nice. I think the biking was great. Yay!

  2. I think we all have days like that.

  3. that turkey roll up looked pretty delish!!!

  4. Yay for upcoming relaxation! Have a great day and a great weekend Alissa!
