And here I go. . . Not off to a good start with my newest life-style venture but I did start.
Thursday morning I started the day waiting until the last possible moment to get out of bed – instead of the planned meditation I had scheduled for myself.
Food: I did make a veggie smoothie for breakfast. Lunch was from Baja Fresh. It was a steak salad with no dressing. So far so good. But 2:30pm rolled around and all I could think about was something sweet. Ugh. I ate a bag of nasty Welch’s fruit snacks. 18g of sugar with 31g of carbs total. Can I get an OOPS?!! For dinner, I just had vegetables. See photo.
It included kale with pumpkin seeds and lemon juice, and roasted vegetables (broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus) and of course lots of water. Then 8:00pm crept in and began screaming for something sweet. CRAP. I grabbed a small handful of some dark chocolate chips (used for baking). It satisfied me.
And it’s Friday. Again, I hit the snooze about 4 times knowing full well that I wanted to get up about 15 minutes early to meditate. And, that didn’t happen.
Food: I didn’t even leave myself enough time to make my veggie smoothie. Best laid plans. . . . I had a banana for breakfast. (yes, I know bananas have a bunch of sugar in them, but I’ve had a banana for breakfast every day since I can remember – it’s another habit I’m hoping to break) Lunch, I went to Mad Greens and had what they call a Ty Cobb salad (with no dressing.) It’s romaine lettuce, a few tomatoes, bacon, hard boiled egg and avocado. Just finished it. Wonder how long it will be before I break down again and go in search of something sweet? Won’t be hard since the peanut and regular M&M’s are sitting on my desk (for ‘guests’) and the fruit snacks are back in the break room. I bought lots of meat at the store the other night, so I should have a good protein packed meal with veggies for dinner :)
Tomorrow is the first day of my vacation, and hopefully I will be better at getting this ‘get healthy’ change into full gear. Like I said, I may not be off to the best start, but I did start.
I’ll post weight info and pictures later.
Happy Friday all
