#134 - Day 2.

Thursday, June 06, 2013

Yesterday was a pretty good day for me in regards to my mini-challenge. In fact, I'm kind of enjoying it a bit. However, it been tough when it comes to guilt and coming to terms with some food. I'll explain more in a minute.

Breakfast --

Pictured is a Luna peppermint stick and a Oikos strawberry Greek yogurt. This is probably one of my favorite breakfasts because it's so easy and fairly healthy. Plus, there's no cooking involved! emoticon

Snack --

My apple was bad so I really only had almonds.

Lunch --

I made this soup in the crockpot Tuesday night. It has water, chicken broth, shredded chicken, Lima beans, carrots, squash, zucchini, and onion. It came out pretty good! I put some Cajun seasoning in it to make it spicy too! Like my snack, I barely got to eat any of the apple since it, too, had gone bad.

Snack --

Pepper, hummus, and black beans with Cajun seasoning. This was a tasty snack!

Dinner --
I forgot to snap a picture for a good reason -- my Mom met my boyfriend last night! It's a long, complicated story, but I'm just so happy that it finally happened. Anyways, the three of us went to a Mexican restaurant. I was still a little full from my snack, so I ended up eating about half of my fajita nachos with a few chips and salsa. Instead of water, I had a pink lemonade.

Circling back to the introduction, I'm having some trouble this morning letting go of the guilt and making peace with my body after last night's dinner. In reality though, I shouldn't because I left the restaurant satisfied, not overly stuffed like I usually do. This means I need to spend a little more time in the mirror this morning telling myself it's ok and that I'm proud of the accomplishments I've made thus far. I'm determined to let go of this guilt. Food won't have power over me anymore.

    Let go of that guilt! It's pointless and more toxic for you than anything you ate last night. You are making healthy choices and you are treating your body well. Keep it up and STAY POSITIVE!
