Streak - Not Yet

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

My Sparkfriend CHICCHANTAL challenged people who read her blogs to start a streak. Hers was a mix of food, exercise, water etc. I thought that sounded like a good idea so I sort of endorsed it with as much enthusiasm as I can muster right now. Today was going to be the first day of me exercising and eating within range.

Did not happen. I did a lot of running around, but not to the extent that I can honestly call it exercise. A new employee started today so her boss brought in doughnuts. Someone else brought in a chocolate cake. Another person brought in a bundt cake. I walked past all of that! Woohoo, me! But...

I was the Toastmaster of the Day for our club's open house today. I knew the food was going to be Quiznos sandwiches and I brought my own lunch planning to eat that. But I did not.

I was still on track for food. Yay, me! But....

I had the chance to work a smidge of OT (YAY! NEED THAT!). Came home hungry and ate two small Quiznos sandwiches and THAT is what put me over.

I was given some of the leftovers and they do stretch my budget. But that does not mean I need to eat them all now!

Still stunned about Bundy's death, still bummed not to get the cat, but so grateful for the peaks and valleys of the day. I am alive! I can celebrate many things and I will survive the others.

    Good for you for walking past the sweet stuff!
    What I do to avoid getting to hungry is keeping a little baggy or ziplock of nuts and seeds with me to snack on whenever I need to. It works for me!
    Being too hungry is not a good thing for your blood sugar in general!

    Have a great night!

    You are working on it and that is going a long way. Just remember that for every time you have a slip-up just take two steps forward. emoticon

    You did pretty well, I think. We all have lapses. Every day is a new day.

    Well done passing on the sweets Mali, that is huge! I won't do so well with the upcoming Life Master Party and Rookie Master game -running on empty and nerves and stress that all will go well and everyone will have a great time -its all on my shoulders to make these special events a success :P Some incredible daities will be up for grabs and those little treats add up if I can't keep away from them :((
    Its a shame you wasted the Quiznos left overs eating them all at once (unlike Subway, their products are very high calorie), but certainly understandable. Not many people can control stress eating on top of being hungry.
    Tomorrow is another day and you can do this!!
