a day

So yesterday was sort of amazing food wise. Then not so amazing. I feel like some sort of scientist studying myself and my food habits lately. They've been so all over the place.

Starting with eggs in the morning was awesome (so I did it today too). Kept me full right until lunch, not even thinking of food before hand. Then I had about a cup of my tomato soup, it wasn't quite tasting right so I stopped eating it and had a yogurt. Thinking I can have my "other" lunch in an hour if I was hungry. Instead I got busy with work, not particularly hungry, so I ate the other yogurt before my dentist appointment. So until 6:00 last night I had only about 400 calories and was completely satisfied. Of course I realized this at supper and made up for it. We had beef kabobs and sweet potato fries and steamed broccoli with cheese and veggies and hummus. All great food. But I totally overloaded on the fries. Then dessert was handfulls of candy corn which hubby bought and left sitting on the cupboard. My stomach hurt when I went for my weight class. (which went very well, I'm finally able to feel my butt in squats and lunges, really have to focus).

The scale wasn't too cruel this morning, so I'm still doing already for the week.

Tonight I've got a comedy show to go to with my siblings. It starts at 8, so I might not have enough time to do a workout tonight. If I do have time I'll try and get a quick interval run in after work. Supper is a slow cooked roast and probably more steamed broccoli (I bought a ton). Lunch/snacks today are spinach salad with 2 hard boiled egg whites (dog got the yolks). Veggies and hummus, yogurt and some pineapple.

Candy Corn is a Halloween devil.

I'm actually testing myself right now. I bought a container of it to use in a decoration, but I'm waiting until the last minute to open it because I know it will be torture if it's open and sitting there taunting me.

Tell hubby to quit bringing that crap home. He's supposed to be off the crap too isnt' he? Silly boys.

Wow! I can't believe 400 calories held you over until lunch time. That is insane! I guess what's in the food really makes a huge difference eh?

Have fun tonight! We are going to a comedy club next week in Ontario an di'm super excited!

A comedy show, how fun! I had to laugh about the scientist comment - so true!

Sara said...

Wow I can never get over how some people can last so long without food, but I guess when you aren't hypoglycemic you can do it!

eew I hate candy corn. I never have to worry about that!

Good thing laughing burns a lot of calories! Do lots of it tonight!

Re MIL: I'm not ranting about her in case she finds my blog (with her being at my house, she could stumble on the address on the address bar). Truth is - she's driving me friggin nuts and I want to scream. She does what she wants all the while making it "appear" otherwise or she throws a "what's the point of me moving here tantrum." She's manipulative and selfish. Isn't it awful that I just said that? I can't help it. She'll get all offended if I try to explain why this or that isn't a great thing for me to eat because she doesn't listen to me for one thing, she's one of those people who thinks if there's no "fat" in it, it's perfectly fine, and because she's nuts and she's a "fault and blame" kind of thinker, where I'm a "let's just get the job done who cares about fault and blame" kind of person. She is the most stubbornest (is that a word) person I know and there's no changing her - trust me! At least hubby totally sees it and he's on my side 90% with how I feel. I've got 2 more weeks of her in the house. I figured I'd let her do her "thing" this week doing what she wants and then that's enough hand holding and I'll make what I want when I get home even if she's got something made. The problem I am having lately is maintly that hubby has been so busy with work the past 4 days, he's been missing supper leaving just the two of us and if she's got it all prepared when I get home then I feel like I'm being a super bitch if I don't eat it with her. It's coming to an end and trust me I could go ON and ON and ON about her because she's just THAT kind of a MIL. I swear I'm going to lose my mind! Sorry for the rant, I just had to let it out somewhere around here! lol
