Doing okay! Not 100% on all goals, but I knew being home was going to be challenging.
We made 1/2 of the cookies yesterday, the rest as soon as I'm done online! Not eating dough is really, really, REALLY difficult for me. Haha. Like every 2 seconds I have to remind myself, "Don't eat dough. Don't eat dough. Don't do it. Don't eat that scrap. Don't. Stop." I did eat a piece about the size of a tic tac. Most years I eat at least 1 cookie worth of raw dough, probably more like 2.... But otherwise I think my self-control was pretty impressive.
I did eat candy - chocolate covered almonds. I need to have an actual better snack when I'm hungry. It's okay to be like, you know what? I'm eating because I'm HUNGRY and therefore not eat garbage. (If I hadn't eaten stupid candy I could have had a piece of fresh baked bread with dinner. Booo!)
I met half my goals yesterday; yes to calories, carbs, protein, and sodium under 3000mg, and water and veggies. No to fat, cholesterol, fiber, stretch protein and fiber, and sodium range. Eh. It could be worse!
Tonight will be my favorite dinner + awesome rice stuff, so I have to be especially smart for lunch and snacks. We did go to the gym, hooray!
Merry Christmas! I'll probably not update tomorrow, but I'll update on the 26th for today and tomorrow.
