In weight that is. Not even remotely surprised. This is what happens when you eat and eat and eat and eat bad food. You gain weight. I was talking to my mom last night as we grocery shopped, and I asked, "Why is it so easy one day and so hard the next?"
There was no way I was going to start eating right at the first part of last week. All I wanted was to stuff my face with muffins, pasta, potato chips, breads. And that's exactly what I did. When I DID make a good choice, I felt grumpy and deprived, even though the food itself that I went with was tasty.
Yesterday I "decided" to eat right again. By decided, I mean, I just did it. And today, I'm just doing it again. It's not hard. The food tastes good. I am, as usual when eating right, having to deliberately eat, because I'm just not as hungry, since the food I'm eating actually has nutritional value. But it's still good. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do for dinner. After breakfast, lunch and snacks today, I'm up to 772 Cal. And honestly, I can only eat so much meat. I like meat, meat is good, but I've already downed two eggs and will have finished 7.7 oz of chicken before the day is done. That's a lot of meat for me. I have veggies, but they won't fill the calorie gap.
I like nuts, but it seems odd to eat them every day. Oh oh oh oh! I just remembered I have acorn soup! That would make an EXCELLENT dinner. I have no idea of the nutritional value, but I'm sure it's good for me. Acorns have a full complement of the essential amino acids I know. And, you know, fat, which will make up the difference in my calories. And being so low on calories, I'm not going to have to worry too hard about overdoing it.
Neat! Yay blogging! The socially acceptable way to quasi-talk to myself, so I can work my way through my problems.
