Feeling in control

Posted Mar 20 2013 6:43pm

And we’re half way through the week! We’re getting there. I’m a live-for-the-weekend kind of gal, now more than ever!

I wasn’t feeling very well when I woke up this morning. I felt really nauseous. I was in the kitchen and all of the sudden everything seemed really bright, so I sat down. I ate some breakfast and felt a little better.

I ate Ezekiel toast with almond butter and a sliced banana. I also had skim milk. This is my go-to breakfast.

After breakfast, I got ready for the day and had to head outside in the bitter cold to go finalize my photography contract.

I love my headband that I picked up at Charming Charlie’s in Florida. Funny thing, the only places I have seen these sold are in Florida and South Carolina…where they don’t need them!

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING! Sure wish it was more like spring!

And then I came back home to work. It was nice to have a warm cup of coffee to sip on!

I had problem after problem with my computer this morning. And then I got pulled off of my new job to help with my old one. Sometimes a break is nice though.

For a snack, I ate a WW string cheese.

And 1 oz. of raw almonds.

For lunch, I tried to make an egg white omelet with ham and cheese. It kind of fell apart in the pan. I ate that with a Van’s waffle with butter and 100% maple syrup.

I had fresh strawberries for dessert.

On my break, I ate an apple with peanut butter.

One of the worst things about buying all natural peanut butter is the separation. I hate stirring it up initially! Ick!

And my afternoon coffee.

For supper, I baked my last Cheese and Tomato VitaPizza (see the right hand side bar).

I also ate a spinach salad with feta, blackberries, and lite poppy seed dressing.

This is my last ice cream bar until the weekend when I will eat one more and the not buy any more ice cream for a while again. I promise.

One thing I have learned from clean eating is that sugar sweetened treats should not be a part of my daily diet, even if in moderation. I would say once or twice a week would be enough. I see what eating sugary treats does to the numbers on the scale. Never thought I’d say that, huh? Winking smile

Well I did. See, I am learning things! And actually, you can make treats without the sugar that are just as delicious, if not more satisfying.

I used 5 weekly points on the ice cream bar.

Overall, I had a good day because I feel in control. Now to stay mindful and avoid snacking in the evening. Hopefully, I can keep my emotional state steady.

Grant me help because we all know I need it. Winking smile
