Yesterday was a pretty good day. Ate well. Didn't get exercise in but it was Sunday so I decided that'd be my day of rest. Then came the evening. ARGH!!! I wasn't hungry and I had NO will power. I started and couldn't stop. I started with peanuts and then graduated to the chips that I hated and had hidden on the back of the fridge. Well, those old friends are in the trash now. Couldn't do that last night but did this morning. Friends like that I don't need, for sure.
Looking back, I'm thinkin' it was the scale yesterday morning that did it. That pound that showed back up must have been in the back of my mind. I had done so well all week and up it popped. That's why I vowed to stay off the scales and here I went and back slid. Well, that's behind me in more ways than one. What's done is done. The only thing I can do is follow my own advice (that I have so freely handed out in comments here and there), just put it behind me and quit thinking about it. I won't beat myself up about it because it will only make me miserable and not get me back in the swing of things. As a matter of fact, I've learned over the past year and a half + that dwelling on it only makes me want to continue on a destructive path and once on that path it is terribly hard to get off it.
So here's what I will be eating today: (and only this)
Breakfast: (268 calories)
2 soft boiled eggs
1 slice Light Wheat toast
1 teaspoon light butter
1 cup coffee with milk and splenda
Lunch: (255 calories)
1 ounce cheese
1 slice pumpernickel bread
1 tablespoon light mayo
Dinner: (315 calories)
1 grilled boneless/skinless chicken breast
2 cups Brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon honey/mustard dip (homemade)
Dessert: (106 calories)
1 cup fat/free sugar/free Watergate salad
Snack: (80 calories)
1 cup Brussels sprouts
Water: (throughout the day)
That gives me a total of 1040 calories for the planned eating. I know there isn't enough fruits and veggies (or calories since I should have 1200) in there so I will probably add celery and craisins if I need something else to eat in between meals or late at night. I really need to do this today. Say a little prayer for me. I need all the help I can get right now.
