mental progress

29 Jan

In previous ways of thinking, the circumstances of today would’ve driven me to a ridiculous day of eating.  Waking up late, being out during the hungriest hours of the day and not much hydration, eating out late for dinner — it would have easily been a five million calorie day.  However, I think I handled it rather nicely, actually.  B was a quarter canteloupe, a quarter cup of sunflower seeds, a drizzle of honey, and 1/2 c nonfat Fage yogurt.  Then I sorta snacked rather than ate lunch while we were out, on two laughing cow RF cheese wedges, a banana, a small apple, and an ounce-ish of walnuts. I was pretty starving by the time we got to the Mexican place for dinner, but I think I made a pretty good choice: a carne asada plate, with no rice.  This place is a “healthy” Mexican restaurant, and the cuts of beef were really lean.  I’m really bad at estimating, but it was a huge platter and I was starving, so I’m saying it was 8 oz of meat.  With that I had 3/4 c black beans, 1/4 c shredded cheese, 1/4 avocado, and 3 small corn tortillas (plus salsa and lettuce and onion, and a diet Coke).  Oh, and about 6 tortilla chips — but I accounted for those.  All in all I came in only 1 point over my allotment for today.

Oh, and I decided to step on the scale today…not telling, since I only want to officially record it once a week, we’ll see on Wednesday  — but it was awe-inspiring.  Like, I had to double and triple check since I’m pretty sure maybe it needs new batteries.

Plan is to grocery shop tomorrow.  I love weeks when I still seem to have a lot of food leftover from the week before so the grocery trip will be pretty light this week. And I WILL go to Zumba — I’ve got two choices, one at 9:30 and one at noon — no excuses.

On an unrelated note I found out my schedule in March will have 8:30 am classes M through F, which is SO NOT FAIR.  But it does also mean I will have to start preparing for not having as much leisurely morning time, which means I need more ideas for good quick breakfasts and maybe a better system for having food ready to go.
