1850 today

Sunday, November 18, 2012

So, I'm at 1850. 300 above my max. Which is not good. But way below 2100 of yesterday, which is good.

I had my usual breakfast: toast with pb and honey with tea with milk/sugar. Then, DH and I had free tickets to a movie that we saw in the early afternoon. We came home, and had leftovers for lunch: roast chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy. We then went out to a big market in the East to find some chairs. Upon arrival , we had coffee. DH had a large flat white and I had a small. Then we visited the markets and shops. We then had another couple of coffees in a cafe. I had a small cappuccino. We then came home, tired. I had a chocolate cherry cordial and rested.

In the evening, while DH was making dinner, I had a snack of greek yogurt, muesli, and blueberries. I learned from yesterday's experience. I measured out 2 tablespoons of muesli rather than freely serving myself. I also measured out about 4 tablespoons of yogurt, maybe more, I don't remember. I then added lots of blueberries. It was actually a pretty good snack. It was multi-textured, tasty, without added sugar. I learned from yesterdays's 500 plus mishap with yogurt and muesli!

For dinner, DH made lamb tacos with salsa. I had two taco fulls, in which each taco had two tortillas. I followed that with a cookie.

With 300 over, I could have made the following changes. If I hadn't had the two coffees and the chocolate covered cherry, I would have been within my range. I could have also skipped the snack, and that would have put me only slightly over my range.

I really enjoy having coffees when I'm hanging out in the city, so I don't know if I"m willing to give that up. Perhaps next time, I'll only have coffee when we are actually sitting down. Instead of having a flat white and walking around with it, I could have had a tea, which would have given me caffeine without the calories.

Also, in terms of a snack, I think I'll try to drink a glass of water and see if it diminished my hunger. I hope these little techniques make a difference.

I'm going to weigh myself tomorrow. I'm scared that I either haven't lost any weight this week or that I have gained weight. I hope I don't get demoralized if this is the case.
