Haha! Photos didn’t happen. BUT! One of the critical aspects of accountability is to make sure that we are journaling our food. And there are so many awesome on-line tracking sites – I love FITDAY.COM myself – there’s a free version that is really user-friendly for tracking food, weight, goals, activity, moods, etc. It keeps us MINDFUL of what is going in our mouths ….. hence today’s blog title … BITE IT ~ WRITE IT!!!
Sunday I did manage to keep my calories to about 900, even with a surprise going out to breakfast!
1 scrambled egg on a small slice of ham with cheddar cheese, 1/2 an English muffin and 1/2 cup of fresh diced fruit – yum!
Lunch was left-over turkey breast, a quarter of a baked potato and half a small-medium apple
Dinner was a 1 & 1/4 cup left over chicken noodle soup (minimal noodles cos we didn’t put many in a big pot), 1/2 a cup of edamame (love these!!!) – and (oh no!) 4 oz of dry red wine.
Monday I have to admit, though I kept it to a 1000 calories, was a challenge as I was out the door at 7:30 to my psych appointment (8 am till 10:30 am), then 45 minutes waiting for a flu shot, followed by half an hour in the pharmacy picking up meds. Stopped for lunch, then was home for about 2 hours working before I left at 3:45 to go to a WLS support meeting from 4:30 – 6 pm, finally getting home for the day at 6:30.
Hubby beat me home by about 20 minutes so our plan to do a pot roast went out the window and he got pizza.
Ah, honey, I love ya, but … pizza? Really?
I did LIMIT it to ONE slice! Breakfast was Trader Joes Greek yogurt with some fresh blueberries and half a thin bagel at 6:30 am – I ended up around 10:30 grabbing an egg/tomato/cheese/basil bagel sandwich and skipped the bagel. Lunch was 3/4 cup of beef stroganoff sans noodles. And the perpetual bottle of water.
It was an emotionally draining day – with starting therapy yesterday morning. You know how it is to have one of those “crying headaches”. And the day demanded a few breaks to sit back and regroup
We can still remember to be mindful when we eat – in spite of chaos around us. A perfect example of last night’s support meeting message …..
Aside from the scale, what are your MEASURES OF SUCCESS?
