Okay, so I almost maxed out my calories today. Once again, bloated feeling. I think that's from too much water actually. Drank a lot of today. But that's not what I discovered. It seems that when I don't eat a filling breakfast I eat more sugary snacks and I eat too much at dinner. That's amazing to me, because I didn't make the connection. Mostly because I eat a pretty good breakfast. I never skip, but not eating enough can be just as bad. I just thought I could make up a skimpy breakfast at lunch time. It really is spread throughout the day.
Also discovered that although I can't eat the Wendy's Spicy Chicken, cake donuts are still my best friend :) It absolutely killed me to only have two small jewel powdered donuts instead of my usual, oh, five or six. Sigh! But I didn't feel deprived, just very sad LOL!!
Sick of this bloated feeling. I start to feel that way around 1300 calories. I can't force myself to eat or drink. Just go with how my body feels. And I have to get back to my fruits and veggies. Not to mention the tofu. It's been very hectic lately, but my schedule has to get back to normal.

Just one more entry of the list of tasty delights that are not so tasty anymore: Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich. I could only eat half. And I didn't have mayo or anything on it. I used to salivate over these things. Right now, I feel like hurling. I don't understand it. I still like hot wings and ice cream and cakes (old faithfuls), but my stomach can't take the sandwich. Maybe it's a fluke? Maybe I'm ill? My stomach is craving a sweet potato and salad right now. Egad, I'm becoming one of THEM: the health conscious masses that turn up their noses at fried, down home cooking and opt for salads and feta cheese instead. Well, at least most of the time. As I'm typing, I'm dying to get to my Jari Love workout.
And I actually wasted money. I hate that, but I can't bear to eat another piece. Off to the trash can it goes, and as I bid my love adieu, I'm gazing at a picture of ice cream. Well, not all bad habits have to die hard.

So most of my calories from today came from my one meal at Atlanta Bread Company. I don't feel bad, because I don't eat like this often. Sure, I could have skipped the baguette and cookie, but, again, I don't eat like this often. I probably won't visit ABC for another 5 months.
I do feel bloated, major blech feeling. My body is getting used to eating less, it's official. That makes me happy. I'm making progress, because I'm not feeling so guilty that I want to quit. I guess that's what makes it a lifestyle change and not a diet. I know that I'll do some killer cardio tonight (Gilad nearly killed me yesterday) and drink lots of water. I also know I probably won't eat like this for another five months at least. I'm really good about not shoving all my calories into one meal. I probably won't be hungry the rest of the day.

My military duty is winding down, so there is more time to post. Nothing to report. I've just been incredibly busy. I treated myself to some Cold Stone Creamery Vanilla ice cream with almonds and caramel. In a 6 ounce variety size :) It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I think it's because I was really craving Baskin Robins Caramel Praline. That's the thing about this lifestyle change: don't substitute your little pleasures. I can't substitute ice cream, I can only get smaller sizes. Because now I'm sitting here mad because my next treat won't be until next month. Oh well. Off to do some cardio to work off some of that ice cream.

For the next 3 weeks. I will be on military duty, and I'll be unable to update like I would like. Too many work hours, not enough time :)
Just one comment: how do I go over 200 calories for my daily goal by eating healthy snacks! Check my food tracker. It's just not fair. Now I'll have to burn that off. Sigh. The hardest part is maintaining. I hope that by being so close to my goal I'm not slipping into bad habits. Overeating is still overeating, even if it's healthy. Gotta reign it in.
