Planning

Yesterday I was hungry most of the day…

Too scared to use my points to early and then be hungry at night… what a mess!

Its hard because I don’t like oatmeal, I normally eat scrambled eggs and toast (with lots of butter) for breakfast. You gotta change the way you think, and you’ve got to cut calories and fat where you can. So this morning I had two pieces of whole wheat toast with 2 fried eggs in a small pat of butter.

I’ve got a turkey sandwich packed for lunch with a salad that consists of lettuce, grape tomatoes, beets, chic peas, cukes, and homemade balsamic vinegarette dressing. Celery sticks with a light babybel cheese, sting cheese.

I don’t want to be hungry today.

I don’t want my day to consist of thinking about how hard this is, it’s about GOOD choices. Its about a way of life, it’s about eating real food, not a bunch of processed crap. It’s about not letting my circumstances affect the way I think about things, about how being hurt does not justify going to the vending machine and eating cheezits.

I am a planner. I know that in planning it makes things easier. We plan our time, we plan a lot of things, and that includes what we eat.

Today’s dinner: Turkey Mignon’s (from Aldi’s) with brown rice with carrots/celery and broccoli

Hey girl. Planning is awesome. For me, planning the healthy, low point foods for at work is the easiest. I eat a cut up apple, a banana, 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs- all that food fights off the hunger, counts toward fruits and veggies, and the protein filled eggs really stay with you for awhile. The hardest part of my day is in the evening, when everyone is home and hungry. I am eating what they eat...just measured and controlled portions of it- I mean, I already know how to drop 50-60 pounds,(Starving and eating only raw veggies) but - I have never been able to keep it off- Thats the lesson I am going to learn this time. How to keep it off with measured, self-controlled portions. I am so glad we are doing this together. You really are a bright spot in my day =)
