Im having a tough time tonight... I have desided I am done for the day though with my eating. I want to eat more... because I feel like crap mentaly and physically but Im not hungry so I have desided not to.
My baby just cried and cried today because shes sick... and Im sick too and she kept me up all night long... I could have really gone for some good old fashioned emotional eating today but I resisted and kept myself on track.
I would like to say I got a workout in too... but I dident. :-( I totaly flaked on the workout because I feel like Im going to snap already and I dont even want to think about it... I know I would prob feel better afterwards but right now that dosent make me want to jump up and do it anymore.
Hopefully I will feel better tomorow and get a good workout in to make up for the lack of one today... But besides maybe eating too many snacks with nutella involved and maybe one more serving of veggies that Im lacking.. I think I did pretty well today.
Breakfast: 1 cup cooked plain oatmeal, with 1/2 tbls brown sugar, 1 tbls raisins, spray butter..... Strawberry smoothy with 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup plain yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, tsp ground flax seed & tbls splenda - 363 calories
Lunch: 1/2 can progresso clam chowder (maybe not the best of choices but I was craving some), 15 wheat thins: 330 calories
Snack: Orange push pop: 90 calories
snack: 1/2 sandwich thin and 1 tbls nutella... (because I knew the push pop was not gonna cut it as a snack): 145 calories

Yesterdays total calories came up to 1689 which is much better than the day before. I really love this way of keeping track of my food because I can just take a picture of it and then at the end of the day write everything down while scanning through the pictures. This has really kept me from nibbling too, I had alot of moments where I wanted to put something in my mouth that I shouldent have and I rethought it because I dident want to have to snap a picture of a bite of my kids leftovers or a peice of easter candy... Im staying on track better than I have in a long time.
I had a hard time finding the time to fit a workout in yesterday with the kids being sick and all... I got in 10 minutes in one segment and 20 minutes in another segment yesterday... I ended up doing squats and leg lifts while doing dishes last night and then I did sit ups, pushups and lunges while I was watching the biggest loser last night.
Here is what I ate yesterday
Breakfast: 2 slices double fiber bread, zero cal spray butter, 1/2 tbls strawberry preserves, 1 tbls nutella, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup 1% milk - 338

I desided that doing a photo food diary would maybe keep me on track a little better today and I was right... I did awesome today and came in right at the top of my calorie range.... I think tomorow I will try to plan out a little better what I eat so I maybe come in midrange.
I got my workout in this afternoon... Biggest loser bootcamp. ..... I was really tired and dident want to do it but I did it and felt much better afterwards.... :-)
