Got a half hour of yoga in this morning, felt good. And then I got a little extra exercise, since it was my turn to walk Scotty - we're taking care of Paul's parents dog for a few days while they're out of town. He's a border collie mix, and Stan didn't have the patience for more than one round of obedience classes, so he is NOT a joy to walk, LOL! The good thing is, trying to walk him is definitely teaching Kate the importance of obedience training, so I think she'll be more than willing to participate when we get a puppy, which will probably be this summer. It is nice to have a dog in the house again for a while though, we all miss Angus (we had to put him down a month or so ago).
I am happy to say that yesterday I finally achieved FULL! I've just been feeling hungry all the time lately, and hitting the snacks like crazy. But somehow, yesterday it all worked. I even, when I found myself automatically reaching for a granola bar around 3:30, was able to ask myself, "am I really hungry or am I just doing this out of habit?" And yes, it was the latter...gotta get back to making sure I think about the difference between cravings and actual hunger. Plus, the water...I know some people have a rule about always drinking a glass of water before eating, and it really makes sense because it's amazing how often you can mistake thirst for hunger.
Anyhow, here's what I ate yesterday, for what it's worth:
Breakfast: 2 slices of peanut butter toast (my usual)
Morning Snack: a greek yogurt (my usual)
Lunch: Banh mi sandwich (yum!) with a small side salad
Afternoon snack: apple
Dinner: Steak sandwich with grilled onions on it, plus asparagus and cubed/grilled potatoes on the side
Dessert: ice cream sandwich (low cal)
I was not even tempted to hit the crackers before bedtime, which I've been doing way too much lately. So hopefully, I can keep up the good work today!
