A quick visit to delete about 8 spam comments…ugh!
So food yesterday:
Breakfast: 8 peanuts, coffee with half and half
Lunch: chicken salad on whole wheat with cucumber & red onion (yum)
Dinner: hot dog on a bun with mustard, onion, relish; spaghetti squash leftovers
Snack: apple dipped in melted semi-sweet chocolate (I know…very bad).
Two days down & I’m feeling okay-ish. Knowing that I’ve committed to at least recording food here has done a couple of things…cut out an evening snack Monday night and cut out munchies (pretzels) for both lunches. I’m trying to think in small portions, re-adjust my thinking about food back to where it would have been 30 years ago before the portion-explosion epidemic hit the US. I’m not eating at Applebees every day for every meal…those big portions are bad enough in restaurants, but they’ve wandered into my home as well & that has to stop.
Today’s another endless Wednesday…although it ends a bit earlier than usual, so when my paper conferences end around 7:30, I’m heading home to make a curry chicken soup for dinner. Okay, so another benefit of recording food here is that I just planned out what I’ll eat today & that’s something I needed to start doing again.
Breakfast: coffee with half and half.
Lunch: chicken salad on hot dog bun (we’re out of whole wheat!)
Dinner: curry chicken soup.
That’s more than enough calories and nutrition for the day, I think. Although I might pack an apple in case I get hungry mid-afternoon…keep myself from wandering to the vending machines.
Have a great day chicks!
