Thursdays thinkings

Thursday, July 11, 2019

OK I am having a bit of fun trying to match the day of the week to a title LOL So past two days have been awesome fitness wise. I have smashed moving my body and burning calories. Between mowing and mall walking I didn't think too much about calories yesterday. I just ate healthy choices. Today back to watching what I eat. I am proud of myself for not giving into cravings. At the mall they had all these fresh pretzel places, like one in ever area of mall, and I so wanted one. Fresh baked bread is the best smell in the world. Part of me was saying go for it since I had done so well mowing, but I refrained because I knew it would be an empty waste of around 500 calories. I hung on until I got home then had a healthy meal full of fresh veggies. Then I just relaxed rest of the night.

Today after this I am going to binge watch a nit more on Amazon Prime but while I do so I am going to be moving around place, mainly walking in place or around my great room LOL is better than just sitting in my recliner. Not sure what I will do later. It is either too hot to venture out or too rainy LOL I know grocery store will be on to do list since I need healthy options for work weekend. Things I can grab to satisfy my hunger, but not fill up on calories. Those keep me sane. So far I have instant soup packets and little breadsticks and cheese. Both are 60 calories each. They fit easily into my locker at work. I need other ideas though.

    Good job on passing on the pretzel ~ you have to make the treats count and sometimes the best answer is no.
    Almonds in good portion sizes packs protein and fills you up when you drink a big glass of water with it. Veggies require an ice pack but fruit can store easily.

    Good for you in resisting the pretzels. They do smell tempting, I agree.
    I always keep dry roasted unsalted almonds with me for a quick snack. I count them out.

    good for you for passing up those pretzels. I got hooked on them when DH lived in NY (we weren't yet married). Almost every street corner had a vendor and they were beyond delicious. BUT yes, calorie laden, alas. Haven't had one for years, but htey still smell divine.

    Apples and oranges keep the best. Depending on how many hours a banana, some grapes, baby carrots, celery, sugar snap peas. I like to take a lunch box with a frozen cool pack, so my fruit and veggies keep pretty well.
