I stayed within my calorie range for the first time. Ever. Woohoo, go me!
I did, however eat some junk. I had some chocolate and I baked some mini muffins (which I'm going to freeze for a sweet lunch treat) and I sampled 3. But I still stayed within my calories!
I'm working tomorrow, so I plan on doing what I did last week; eating a bigger then usual breakfast and taking a special K bar and a piece of fruit with me. I technically don't get breaks, but there is down time so I can snag a bite or two throughout the day. I was asked to go out to dinner with a friend tomorrow night, but she is flexible, so we'll go somewhere healthy!

My plans for tonight (a sleepover with my friends) got cancelled, so there is not going to be any junk in my house tempting me like I thought there would be. That is a good start. I'm not working today so I won't have yummy restaurant food in my face all day. That'll help too. I am going to a leaving party tonight, but I'm not going for long (I don't know anyone but the girl who is leaving, and while usually I'm all about making friends and getting on with it I don't know if I will want to tonight). I don't like to have a drink then drive, so I won't be drinking and I'll be having dinner before I leave. Right, all planned so I can have a good eating day!
The bad thing is, I will be spending all day alone, except for my brief stop at the party. Not the end of the world, but I'm a very social person and having no one to talk to but my cats drives me a bit batty after a while. But I do have a lot of uni and school work to do, so maybe it's for the best. I'm also going on a nice, long walk when the rain clears up.
I can do this!

I ate badly today. I don't wanna talk about it. Lets just say cupcakes were involved!

It all started with hotcakes. I ate a good and healthy lunch and had good snacks.
Then I was reminded that I should be bringing something to contribute tomorrow, for the balloon themed staff lunch. Colourful mini muffins all 'tied together' with frosting 'string' on the platter! Balloons! Yep... They look awesome. I ate 3, unfrosted (I HATE store made frosting but I had some because it was left over from a betty crocker cake). At least I made the recipe 'healthy' by using applesauce in place of half the oil and egg whites only!
Then, since I had already had 3 mini muffins and hot cakes, I called it a day off. I know, I know, there are no days off in a healthy life style etc, but I had one.
I had dinner at work (pork ribs, fat removed, a couple of Tspn of mashed potato and some broccoi). I enjoyed it and stopped eating when I got full.
I probably went over my calories by about 500. I haven't tracked yet.
I kinda regret todays eating. I know there is nothing I can do about it now but look how far I've come (kilos coming off, feeling better) and don't do it tomorrow!

were yummy! Were a waste of calories? Were OK just this once (I haven't had McDonalds for months)?
This morning I had to get up at 5am to take the boyfriend to the bus. He is away for the weekend. 5am and me, we don't get on. 6.15 has been hard enough for night owl me, but 5am? Nope, not pretty.
So I was driving home from the bus stop and all I could think about was hotcakes. Fluffy, warm, drenched in syrup. Oh goodness, I needed it now. My will power was obviously still asleep, so I had some. And they were good. But not something I would eat again for breakfast. I think I just needed the sugar or something. And while they filled my early morning sugar craving, I'm already hungry again and I don't know how I'm gonna make it to 11... I'm gonna try and make it, drink lots of water. I want to eat on my normal timetable today.
I have already planned on eating well today. I did plan on walking, but I had 5 hours sleep, so thats not happening. Lets aim for tomorrow.
Hmmm...so the day isn't a total waste, but I wish I had just come home and had a smoothie instead of the hotcakes.... Live and learn!
