... because the world takes you at your own estimate.
Dude, that is an awesome quote for the mindset discussion we have going over at Project Mayhem. I try to think highly of myself ... but my tastebuds want to play too sometimes. My goal for this weekend is to enjoy myself with much smaller portion sizes. Make my tastebuds savor and then leave it. It's a new game, going to be tough.
Anyway, it was a good eating/exercising etc. day. I feel good. I'm ready for Friday. It's been a long week. Although, i don't have much happening tomorrow, so I hope I can find enough to do to stay busy.
Ok, enough for now. Off to snack and keep racking up sparkpoints.

I'm more than half-way through the week ... hooray! This is one long week. However, I seem to be making it a fruitful one in terms of sticking to plan. This is good because this weekend and next week could be nuts since my sister will be in town and we will be going out ... too much I'm sure.
Anyway, my day went overall just fine. I stuck mainly to plan, although my chocolate cravings are up (TOM I'm sure). Maybe my body actually craves the iron in the chocolate ... hmmm ...
I did a Project Mayhem workout tonight, always good, followed up by 10 min of tabatas. I remembered to stretch. Now it is time for a snack.
Just two more days of work! I can make it!

Today's entry is short. I have been slightly dizzy all day. Not awful, but annoying. I wondered if it was a low-carb thing, but not so much. I think it may be an anemia related to TOM thing, but I have no read meat around to supply to correct type of iron to test that. If I'm still bad tomorrow, I'll get beef for lunch.
Unfortunately, a little high on cals to test a few of my theories and yet to no avail. Not too bad on cals, should still be at or below maintenance. Also went walking anyway, woohoo!

... never with what you are.
Today is a low-carb day. I'm not convinced low-carb and TOM is the best combination in life, especially since somewhere in there I have also been fighting off a tension headache, but I've made it to 10pm, and still on track, so hooray! The headache has been annoying, I've managed to keep stretching and massaging my neck so it hasn't gotten worse than an annoying twinge, but it's still an -annoying- twinge!
Anyway, my food for the day was good. I roasted veggies with dinner tonight, and apparently roasted yellow turnip is a bit too sweet for my husband ... for people who like slightly sweet veggies, it was pretty good! Tonight's veggies were mixed with balsamic vinegar, sherry, onion powder, garlic salt, and Mrs. Dash. Then we had paprika chicken, which is chicken dusted with paprika and sea salt, and broiled, so easy, so delicious.
I also did my workout tonight and 20 min of intervals on the bike with my brand new Ipod shuffle. Yay shuffle! Much easier to manage than my big ipod.
Ok, one more low-ish carb day ... I can do it!

... that someone might be looking
Tonight was another good day for low GI cooking. Me and hubby are low-carbing for a few days. I like to low-carb for 2-3 days at the beginning of each week to help jumpstart me and shake things up.
For a snack I had a Tzatziki salad. I diced tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and red onion, and mixed them with a bit of lemon juice, Greek yogurt, salt, pepper, and dill. Yummy. I had a hard-boiled egg with that to round out my protein.
For dinner I made a version of this: www.lynnskitchenadventures.com/2009/
I substituted processed cauliflower for the rice and left out the mozzarella cheese. I also just used tomato sauce with spices, lots of fennel, I like fennel. It was great. You have to cook the "crust" part for a while to get it not soggy.
I got to use my new slaw-making tool I found on clearance at Target. It was awesome!
Ok, today has been good, so tomorrow's weigh-in better be great!
