Breakfast: 2 eggs fried ( I used cooking spray), 2 pieces of whole grain toast with butter and a glass of orange juice.
Morning Tea: crackers and cheese, yogurt and carrot sticks
Lunch: a sandwich, made with whole grain bread, sliced cheese and cucumbers and lettuce and an individual size (kids portion bag) bag of potato chips.
Afternoon tea: Fruit salad (apples, mandarins, kiwi fruit, grapes and banana) with yogurt and shredded coconut
Dinner: Half of a Tandoori wrap thingie from McDonald's... because the Old Guy was in charge of dinner on Friday night.
I had asked for a large Caesar salad with chicken, but when he spied the Tandoori thing on the menu, he figured that lettuce and veggie stuff basically constituted a salad, and it had chicken in it as well... so what wasn't to love?
I could barely eat the darn thing though... and ended up just having some saltines instead.
And do I feel guilty about some of those food choices?
Not at all.
I think I did pretty darn good, all things considered
Now, On to Day 12 13 & 14.....
Afternoon tea: stuff
Lunch: more stuff....
Okay, okay. I hear ya.
I wrote it all down.... I really did.... but then I went and lost the piece of paper it was written on.
Well, I guess I didn't actually "lose" it, but I'll be buggered if I know what I did with it. Its here somewhere, but I'm not up to looking for it.
It was all healthy stuff, I can promise you... other than what I ate while I was at Costco yesterday.
See, while we were at Costco, I ended up ordering a slice of pizza and a hot dog with a drink.
I no sooner told the Old Guy what I wanted, and he had walked away, than I was kicking myself in the pants over it too.
No - and not because of the inherent "unhealthiness" of it all , but rather because I knew that I have trouble even finishing even a slice of Costco pizza , let alone anything else - so that hot dog would more then likely go to waste.
Which it mainly did.
I was still too full at dinnertime to actually eat or prepare any dinner, so the Old Guy ate half of my 'left in the wrapper" hot dog and shared the rest with the birds...
And I just did without dinner, and walked a few more laps around the yard while he ate..
So it kind of evened out.... right?
I have been eating right, and a few little ummmm... dietary changes or hiccups aren't going to throw off my game plan.
Not at all.
Because I think that if this is going to be a way of life with me, a few little slip-ups or a bit of falling off the wagon... well, it's gonna be actually good for me in the long run.
I'm not gonna be hard and fast about it all, but I am going to stop whenever possible and think about what I'm putting in my body.
And if I want a treat... well dad-gummit all, I'm going to have it - right?
Besides, kicking myself in the pants is good exercise.. innit?
