Day Two - Doing better
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
Today was better. I made plans food-wise and stuck to them The only thing that changed was my dinner - from a loaded salad to enchilada soup that we added a bunch of vegetables too. I saved enough calories and fat from the salad that I was able to have cheese on my soup (oh my!) and got to upgrade my dessert.
My dessert tonight is downright decadent. I took another of the honeycrisp apples I got for 88cents a pound, sliced it thin, fried it in a half tablespoon of butter, and am enjoying it with the cinnamon brown sugar BelVita. A few slices on one of the cookies tastes like apple pie, one of my strong cravings in fall.
Also - the Sweet Potato, Apple, and Carrot soup is a total friggin win. Such a tasty soup when I had it for lunch today. I would have it again tomorrow, but I need to see how the butternut squash soup mellowed in the fridge. With the hint of curry, I bet it's just as good.
My only lightbulb moment today was in the gym after work. I was on the elliptical when these two young, pretty, high school girls came in. One disappeared after they changed in the bathroom, the other did a few crunches on the abmachine and then watched the rest of the simpsons over my shoulder. Then both friends came over and joined me at the elliptical for about ten minutes , talking about how they were going to eat nothing but yogurt for lunch from now on before heading back into the bathroom/changing room to change.
After I got off my machine ten minutes later they were still in the bathroom, meaning I had to drive home (over an hour) in my sweaty gym clothes. Annoyed, I got in my car an started driving. Then I realized how upset I was that these two, tiny girls viewed themselves in such a way and found myself wondering how much I do that to myself. I definitely need a less critical and more objective eye to myself while on the journey this time.
Well, that's about it .
