If you read my blog last night you know that TODAY is the day I start getting this #@$%#@ together!!
So I will admit I typed this up and pasted it right here:

Coffee with ½ and ½ #2
Humus 2 tablespoons 1 carrot sliced up
Deli chicken breast (no nitrates)

½ gala apple
Home Water AM TWO 25 ounce cups of water so 50 ounces
Superfoods vanilla with ½ cup blueberries and 1 green container of the super greens (kale and spinach)
1 espresso with mixture of half and half and almond milk
2 cups of coffee with generous pour of vanilla flavored almond milk
Water goal: 75 ounces
Yoga workout this am. shoulders
When I got home from work tonight I wasn’t sure what I was going to do for dinner. I was home in time to take a moment and eat before having to head out the door for the board meeting. Reality is I should have a protein and a veggie. I just didn’t know what to make. I was like I know eggs!! Then I remembered I boiled them all for Keith’s lunches. Hmm… now what. So it came down to me rationalizing having a carb to keep me alert for the meeting.. and that is what I have did.
Dinner: one bowl of barley/quinoa/rolled oatmeal with flax. I added a dash of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla almond milk. I actually really enjoyed it and it filled me up.
Then I go to the board meeting. Our amazing president brought grapes and chocolate chunk cookies and lots of chocolate….all I could say was ‘I am not hungry, I am not hungry, I am not hungry” I wasn’t, but the thought of free cookies….oh boy. Turns out that I am ‘freegatarian’ Someone who can’t refuse free food. I watched as my friends ate the cookies and I kept saying ‘I am not hungry, I am not hungry, I am not hungry’ Guess what? It worked!! I made it through the meeting without touching a cookie!! It may not seem much but it is one small victory. I am really learning that I need to celebrate each and every small victory. I just don’t want to be so down on myself for failing all the time.
I have to admit that I was quite jealous of the Three Musketeers bar my friend at work was eating…. ugh.
All in all I feel today went well, even if I copied and pasted my food list.
How did you do?
