Time to Put it Out of My Mind
Sunday, August 07, 2011
I'm currently sitting in an "office" of sorts working my last two hours of my 40 hr week. Today I'm in a different part of the hospital and haven't been walking most of this 10 hr shift. I feel tired, sluggish and ready to go on home.
I've realized that my weight is going to stay where it is for now. I'm going to continue to eat healthy and workout, but I can't be focused on a number. Today at work the girls wanted to order Mexican food, and I immediately thought "mmm, chile rellenos with warm gooey cheese and rice and beans and guacamole and sour cream!" Then the harsh reality that a meal like that would completely derail my efforts yet again hit me like a slap across the face. However, I managed to still order out and get the flavors I wanted. I got myself some chicken fajitas with corn tortillas and a side of pico de gallo. I plugged the foods into the nutrition tracker and tried to assume the highest amounts so that I wouldn't think that I had eaten less than I actually did...
All in all, from what I can see, the meal came to about 450 calories, which is about how much I had planned to eat with my packed lunch. So, hey, I ate what I wanted and still maintained my calories. After work I plan to go to the store and pick up some food for dinner tomorrow at the parents and then turn on Miss Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and sweat it out. Then I can relax and enjoy the rest of the night.
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
