Report for Tues:
I’m happy to report that I made it through a rough morning. It was hard to get up b/c I’d only had a little sleep last night and the night before. And I slept a little later than usual so I didn’t have time for my omelet. So I instead threw a southwestern turkey burger that I had already thawed in the fridge on the George Foreman grill. Then I just put it on a couple of slices of bread w/ a slice of cheese. So it took very little time to prepare, was tasty, and I could eat in the car. For lunch, I went out to Applebees with a friend. I think I did okay there, actually. Had a half a sandwich and french onion soup. Then, stupid me, went to a got an oreo sundae after work. I estimated it to have about 700 calories, but after I ate I looked up the nutrition info (yes, fine time to look up the info) and it has over 1100 claories! Well, I’m not going lose sleep over it – my overall cals for the day were probably not too terrible. (maybe 2000-2500). And the important thing, as I’ve said a million times , is to keep on going and not let a mistake derail me. Tomorrow I hope to get in a longer workout (at least an hour), and I should be able to stay on the eating track pretty well. I’m not tracking my calories this week because I have so many events that are out of my control (dinner at friends, dinner at work party on thursday, dinner at friends house on friday, restaurant w/o NI today, etc.). However, I can still lose weight without knowing exactly how many calories I’m eating. I still know what I should and shoulnd’t be eating and what the healthier, low calorie choices are.
