So plan of attack on Day 1 ended up so-so.
C25K in the morning.
I ate a good lunch and a good dinner (calorically speaking) but supplemented it with wine and spinach and artichoke dip and tortilla chips. Still I remembered some of my old tricks. Diet Coke in between the wine, spooned the dip on my plate and broke the chips in half as I ate them.
I enjoyed every morsel and tracked every bite/sip on my iPhone.
I track to keep myself mindful of what I’m eating. I break the chips to trick myself into thinking I’m eating more than I actually am.
Today I had my typical breakfast and had this for lunch. The salad was pretty basic, spinach, chicken, red onion and crumbled goat cheese. The dressing was olive oil, balsamic and a teaspoon of honey dijon. Plus Pop Chips.
For everyone who thinks they can’t make their own lunch every day you totally can. This morning I woke up at around 6:45. At 7 I put a chicken breast in the oven and roasted it (it was slightly defrosted) at 400 degrees for an hour. I added the chicken to my salad. I now have the other half for lunch tomorrow.
I had some snacks as well. I had 1 peanut butter granola bar (those thin Nature Valley ones that come 2 to a package), a piece of Dark Chocolate and a banana before Zumba.
I had fresh whole wheat pasta and chicken with the sauce for dinner. I made sure to measure the portions.
So that’s the big crazy plan. This is what I’m going to do. Even before Iost weight there has never a time I’m not thinking about what kind of food I put in my mouth, whether it’s healthy or not. It’s just about making choices and paying attention to how much I eat.
I am SO HAPPY the weekend is here. Tomorrow I am going to clean my apartment (REALLY TRULY). Saturday Dave is coming to help me declutter and to go to the movies with me. I promised he can watch football while we work.
Sunday Dave, my mom, Jen and I are going to the NYC Wine and Food Festival.
(OK – not really in the face but close)
And wow. I had blond hair!!!!
