What I did right today!

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Last night I decided that I have worked too hard this past 10.5 months to chuck it all while DH is in the hospital.

So, I cooked up 2 packages of frozen veggies and ate a portion of each and put the rest in the fridge.

This morning before I left I cooked up yet another package but put the whole thing into the fridge.

Tonight I came home and had 3 portions of veggies, already cooked, with 3 oz chicken, also cooked! This is going to work! I even had some calories left for a portion of Souped Up Minute-Rice, yes, it too was a cooked leftover!

I was *too tempted* at the hospital and ate some of DH's dessert but I came home and looked up what I believe the equivalent is and charged myself for a full serving of the cheesecake! Still in range! Hallelujah!! On the bright side I had Tilapia, carrots and string beans for lunch. Oops, and vegetable sticks - gotta go figure them in! Not still in range. But I am human and I did eat a lot of veggies today!

That was my worst slip in 9 months!!

The good news is I ate 4 fruits and 6 veggie portions today!! WooHoo!!
Pineapple, Strawberries, Grapes, Peach, Carrots, Green Beans, Vegetable Sticks (not as healthy but oh so good), Brussels Sprouts, Mixed Vegetables, Mixed Greens!

**edit: I cannot locate vegetable sticks so I was definitely over on my day! Rats!! But I am pretty sure I have burned enough calories today to save the day.

    Linda. IT WAS VEGGIE STICKS!!!! You did a greatthing today. You allowed yourself to be human and you are still on your program. It's going to be alright. LOL You make me laugh at myself and you. I eat a slice of cheesecake at 2am for a snack, count it and move on. You, who are making such fabulous progress, eat veggie sticks and worry. I guess what I'm saying is make sure you are living in the real world. A lifestyle change isn't something that will not allow room for veggies. Be careful, myfriend,

    I don't even consider that a stumble. You are doing so well that this isn't even going to show as a blip on the radar screen.
