Well, yesterday went better than expected. I packed a lunch/dinner for myself at work that was heavy on the fruits and veggies with a diet Snapple tea as my treat. I had the opportunity to eat a cookie yesterday and I passed it up preferring to bring it home for today's dessert. (And it's a soft yummy sugar cookie!)
I burned more calories than expected and wasn't that hungry so I had some fruit leftover. Then, I heard a coworker complain that they were starving after twelve hours of work where all they'd had to eat was "a banana and a bit of cake". Lol, yes, we are nurses and we should know better.
Knowing this coworker is a vegetarian, I gave her my leftover apple and some PB and cheddar crackers that are part of my emergency stash. I couldn't stick around to see if it helped her mood; I had to get back to work.
So, summary... I burned more calories yesterday than I expected (not enough to reach my goal of 2800, of course, but still I'm happy), I ate a little bit less than I expected, so I still made my -1000 calorie deficit for the day! And I gave up a sweet temptation. :) A very good day, indeed.
