Bagel day was yesterday and I survived it. I didn't go into the break room so I didn't see the large spread of color coordinated bagels, donuts, jam, butter and cream cheese. I did not have deprived or as if I needed a bagel or donut. This is a major milestone because had been getting both the bagel and going back for the chocolate top glazed donuts. Sometimes I ate two donuts. But there was something I forgot to mention last week--bagel days are Thursday and the left overs (still a lot of bagels left over) are on Friday's. Therefore, not only did I eat my bagels and donuts on Thursday, I'd eat on Friday as well and Saturday, I would sleep the entire Saturday away and struggle to wake up!
Well, today is Friday! Happy Friday! I woke up with a headache and cramps. I checked my cabinet for some instant oatmeal but didn't have any. Oh well, I had to go to work so I got in my car and tried to figure out my breakfast plans. I didn't want to take any advil on an empty stomach. A very nice coworker knows my struggle with bagel day and offered me oatmeal when I got in to work. I was going to get some oatmeal but needed to find a bowl so I could cook the oats in the microwave. So instead, I got half of a bagel and I left the other half on that nice big bagel spread. I keep applesauce cups at my desk and felt this would help me take my pain killer. I took my midol and ate the half bagel with butter and my cup of applesauce. I do not feel like a stuffed roast either.
By the way, I weighed in yesterday because I "felt" as if I weren't walking as hard as usual. I weighed in at 172.8 and then I weighed myself this morning and it was 172.something. I can't remember but I am supposed to feel bloated, weigh more, moody (yeah I did have this), and crave chocolate (which I did and I made this really nice chocolate shake i'll share on Sat with you).
I am "1 pound" away from reaching my 5% body weight loss from 180lbs!
I was unable to reach this before when I didn't sign in to see my spark friends and was on this journey outside of sparkpeople. I love my spark friends! Thank you for showing me genuine love and concern throughout the years!
