I've reached my goal of 1.5 lb for the week, and it's only day 4! yay!!
The pizza last night wasn't the best idea. I mean, it wasn't THAT bad; it was gluten-free, and I did stay in my calories, but the simple carbs just made me hungrier... all night i wanted to eat more carbs, I even wanted to get some candy, but thank goodness I didn't give in. I probably won't get pizza again any time soon. Why do that to myself? I will eat a low-carb, high-protein dinner tonight that won't spike my insulin so much.
Today I'm doing yoga and walking. I have some chicken breast that I am marinating in italian dressing mix, and I'll grill that and eat it over a salad with another tomato from my garden, and some guacamole.
I had a long talk with my grandmother last night and it made me feel so much better. I am so grateful to have such a strong, wise, and supportive woman in my life. I hadn't talked to her (except in emails) for almost a year; I don't know why I didn't call her sooner -- I wanted to, but I always think people are angry at me because it's taking me a long time to finish school... I just get overwhelmed and stressed out, and I seclude myself... I need to learn to reach out. I'm proud that I took the step to do so last night.
