OK, so the pattern is: I eat crap and feel crappy about it, then I don’t write about it (because I feel crappy about it), and then I feel even crappier because I failed to keep two promises to myself instead of just one. Here’s to breaking the pattern! Translation: I ate crap today, but I am still gonna write about it. So there!
It all started out ok…
coffee w/ coconut milk 2X, 2 slices rice toast with margarine (the healthy-ish kind), peach, handful blueberries, 2 eggs
fresh veggies with mayo dip, small peach
Here’s where I got the munchies and it started to go south a bit:
handful dried apricots, 2 stale corn chips, earl gray tea
rice noodle pasta, broccoli, 1 chicken sausage, marinara sauce, small peach, handful raspberries, 2 GLASSES WINE
and the wine made this seem like a great idea:
6 raspberries stuffed with cream cheese icing and a chocolate chip each, another handful of chocolate chips and the rest of the icing… at least it’s gone.
I think another part of the problem was that I didn’t eat enough (read: any) protein in the middle of the day. It set me up for sugar cravings at the end of the day. Also, I was lonely and I have my period, and the Child and I have been pushing each other’s buttons (read: she’s been acting like a two year-old). So it looks like I was not quite ready for the halfway house — next month I’m back to a more structured diet. My newly-smaller ass is not up for the challenge of eating whatever whenever.
Hopefully I am actually learning this rather than just typing it up and forgetting it.
I did manage a great workout!
Tracie Long: Leaning Out — First time, and I loved it! 50 minutes of innovative strengthening with some cardio thrown in to keep my heart rate up through out.
I also went to a toddler yoga class with the Child. Yay stretching! Yay nekkid babies!
