I didn't know what to title this entry, can you tell? lol
Today was a good day. For breakfast I had a chocolate slimfast shake, and it was delicious. I loved it, it tasted even better than I remembered from before. I got hungry between breakfast and lunch (as I anticipated) and had mandarin oranges to tide me over til lunch. At lunch I had planned on eating a pumpkin and squash lean cuisine ravioli thing, but it was disgusting. I don't know if it was because it had defrosted before I cooked it, or if it was because I overcooked it, I don't know. But it was gross. So I tossed it out and ate a Maruchan instead. Then I had my normal side stuff. I've discovered that sugar really effects me, now that I've cut down on it. I haven't really eaten much sugar all this week (which is great for me since I love candy soooo much) but one of my snacks is Stacy's Cinnamon sugar pita chips (taste great, and not bad for you in moderation) and ever time I eat them I get hyper and kind of silly. It's interesting, lol.
I didn't do my arms and abs like I had wanted to, but I did have a solo dance party :-) so I was a bit active. And I did eat pretty well. I was in charge of dinner tonight so I made baked haddock, a veggie garlic stir-fry, and I had intended on making brown rice but we didn't have enough for everyone so I found some orange lentil things... which cooked down to MUSH. It was like real oatmealy consistancy MUSH. Did NOT turn out how I wanted it to - but I mixed it with some cinnamon on my plate and a bit of Splenda and it was tolerable.
I'm thinking I might step on my scale again tomorrow morning... just for a preview. Tomorrow is Friday, and that is normally my take out day at work for lunch, and I don't want to vary that. So I think I am going to do Subway for lunch - and I kind of want to jump on the scale to see what's what to help motivate me against losing sight of my goal.
Oh - new goal. By May 1st I want to be 210 or less. Wish me luck!
