I did eat late in the evening but I had a whole bag of frozen cauliflower(cooked!) and about a cup of frozen green peppers(cooked) mixed in. the combination was tasty and filling. I can't believe I actually succeeded! I am really trying hard not to blow this.
I have spent many years daily messing up a healthy day's eating with late night eating of heavy, calorie laden foods. I really did not think I could control myself even one night.
today was unusual because I was so busy, I had not much time to think of food. that is very rare. I woke up late and (as usual) for lunch I just threw stuff into a plastic bag and a plastic food container: cheese, bing cherries, a handful of red leafed lettuce. I ate each of these during the school day whenever I could. Even my last 2 classes I was unusually active because I had some gym equipment we took outside. the day was sunny but breezy and not hoe. We played catch, pickle in the middle and I did some one-on-one stuff with a tall, gangly boy who has CP. He is awkward and looks like his legs will break off, but he did what I asked and I walked alongside him. After school I went to look at the dorm kids ready for their prom. Wow! Their outfits were dazzling!
Then, I went to water aerobics. I had a very full day! the health aide came at 8:00 pm to put my husband in bed. I have had the evening aides for a month now. It is so wonderful to be freed from that responsibility. My husband is not happy with it. Well, I am much more relaxed. So: "Tough Bongies!" He was also mad because I expected him to actually eat the lunch and dinner Meals on Wheels brings! He went hungry rather than eat that. "Tough Bongies!"
I can afford to eat a few more calories today so I had a glass of wine and later brown rice with Brummel and Brown yogurt spread.
Thank you for all your supporting messages yesterday! I definitely needed the kind words!
