Pretty good day today. I had a Fiber One bar for breakfast, along with my coffee, just to give myself a break from oatmeal. I ended up going to lunch with a couple of co-workers, and we went to a restaurant I LOVE. Normally, I order the risotto gnocchi, but this time I ordered the grilled vegetable platter. O.M.G. SO GOOD. I had two thin slices of baguette (no butter) while we waited for lunch to show up, and two glasses of iced tea with sweetener with lunch. Hard to estimate what I ate, portion-wise, but I finished off most of a large portabella mushroom cap, about five large asparagus spears, and about 1/3 of a potato. A very small amount of some sort of roasted red pepper cheese spread, but I didn't eat much of it, as everything tasted wonderful without any heavy sauces.
At about 3:00pm, I caved and had one See's chocolate sucker. I was and needed a pick-me-up.
That was it. I got home and wasn't hungry at all. Thought about eating, just because I thought I should, then decided that was stupid. That was that "other" little voice that whispers things like, "But you are SUPPOSED to eat three meals a day!" Makes me wonder if my brain and body are finally getting in sync with each other, and letting me know when I actually NEED to eat, vs. when I WANT to eat!
I had my eight glasses of water and took my vitamin, and other than the sucker, I made some darned healthy (and very delicious) choices today.
I did my sit-ups and push-ups this morning, and I slogged along for 45 minutes on the treadmill tonight. I have a big meeting/presentation tomorrow, and I want to feel my best when I'm standing there in front of 20+ attendees, including the smattering of bigwigs!!
I am giving myself an A- today. I lost the + when I stuck that sucker in my mouth. But I'm not complaining. An A- is better than what I was earning a few weeks ago!!
