Good and Bad Day
Friday, August 24, 2012
So, today was a bad day as far as eating goes. The thing is, I expected it to be bad. I was tired and didn't have any food made to take to work. All I could find in the morning was a bit of leftover avocado-potato salad leftovers. I took that and some cherry tomatoes. Not too bad, but not a lot of food. I worked from 7:30-4:00. For breakfast before leaving, I didn't feel like my normal smoothie, so I had a bowl of corn bran cereal with soy milk, almonds, and dried cranberries. Slightly healthy, high calorie, no "real" fruit. On my first 15-min break, I had half a multigrain bagel with butter. Meh, not bad, but not good. I had my potato salad for lunch. Then I had a tall iced pumpkin spice latte (soy). (Not horrible, but I should have stopped here). Then I had a salted caramel petite square. (Things are going downhill). Then I had a slice of chocolate cake. (Things are really bad). Dinner at home was whatever we found in the fridge. So I had leftover boiled potatoes. (Yikes, potatoes 3 times in 2 days!!). I tried to make a potato salad by mixing them with pickles and homemade mayo. But the homemade mayo is more like hummus. And I'm sure you can imagine, hummus and potatoes aren't that good together. So I added butter. And salt. Then ranch. Then I had a slice of toast with margarine and date spread. Not too bad, but the last thing I needed was more carbs.
So that was how the day was bad. Here's how it was good: All my treats were small and I only ate half the bagel. The best part, however, is that I still did my C25K workout! And it was easier than the past two times, even though I ran after work. Yay! All this working out is making me more fit, even if it's not showing up on the scale. (Yet).
