Sorry this is so late in the day. It’s been a crazy day, and this is my first time even looking at my computer today.
Today was one of those days that life threw me a challenge, and not a chips and popcorn type of challenge. I had to wake up way too early and I knew this was going to test my day. When I wake up before the sun…WAY before the sun…I have very strange eating habits all day long.
I had my coffee this morning, with my flavored cream, and that was it, for about 3 hours. I KNOW! I should have eaten something with that coffee, but really, who wants to eat at 3:00 in the morning?? So, I threw a Kashi bar in my bag (3 WW points) and did what I had to do. I started to feel very hungry around 6:00, who wouldn’t? So, I had my Kashi bar, but made the horrible mistake of having an extra cup of coffee with the bar. Oh, I forgot to mention, the bar was mocha flavored, so there was a whole lot of coffee going on in my empty stomach. The Kashi bar did its job, but the extra coffee screwed with me. Sometimes one cup of coffee is so good, that two must taste better, right? Wrong! I felt like there was a hundred butterflies fluttering in my stomach and this just made me shaky, so I didn’t eat again until 2:00.
So, earlier in the week, I was griping about being bored. Well, today I had too much to do and didn’t have time to eat, and that’s a whole different issue, right? I finally had lunch at 2:00, when my tummy told my body the reason my hands were shaking like a leaf was because I needed to eat. Luckily I made the right choice and chose Subway over Wendy’s. Huge victory there! Usually, burgers trump any food for me. They are a major weakness. I had my Subway with a bottle of water and no chips. I was satisfied, so woo-hoo!
Dinner was salmon with roasted veggies and a glass of wine. I stayed within my points, and beat a stressful day. I think I need to carry more snacks with me when I’m faced with days like this!
FYI…I may not get a chance to post every day this weekend, so if you don’t see a post for Friday or Saturday, I will recap them with Sunday.
You’ve Been Beautified!
