Scuttle- I also could've done much better...last time I was there, I ordered steamed veggies instead of potato and only ate 1/4 of the onion!! Oh well, it's been awhile and it was a nice indulgence!

A couple of challenging days coming up: lunch and dinner both out for the next two days, then lunch out on Saturday. I swear, some days it seems like there's no one home as little as I am for meals. I might be able to duck out one of the lunches, but we're entertaining at work, so it's sort of expected I go. And I might just bring leftovers to heat up on my friend's house when I visit tomorrow. Usually everyone fends for themselves for dinner anyway.

Thursday

Breakfast
Maple sugar flavored oatmeal
Morning Star Breakfast Patty
Luna Bar

Snack
Trader Joe Cat's Cookies

Lunch
Salad Bar with pretty healthy stuff
Baked Potato with a little butter, sour cream, and a lot of salsa

Snack :(
Waaaay too much chocolate -- 15 miniatures? More?
Even more TJ Cat's Cookies

Dinner
Bean Thing over wild rice
Another Luna Bar

Okay, today was a pretty unsuccessful day. A horrid meeting at work, combined with "that time of the month" for chocolate cravings, combined with a ready candy dish, just spiraled things out of control. And when they started out of control it went from bad to worse.

So, it's another meeting today, and I need to figure out how to better handle this. I think I need a "just say no" approach to candy today because, once I take one piece in a meeting, it's all over. I'll see what I can do, and chalk it up as a learning experience. (I seem to have a lot of those.) Maybe it'll balance with the two days earlier this week when I was sick and ate less than nothing. Or jump start my metabolism. Um. Yeah, that's it! :)

And welcome, BaileySG! The more, the merrier!

[u]Breakfast

Some TJ Cat Cookies

Dinner
Foot long veggie at Subway, accidentally with extra cheese and light mayo
Baked Lays
Large slice of ice cream cake, with frosting

Munching
Handful of soy nuts
Mini ice cream sandwich

There. Full disclosure. I need something to break this 'eating too much junk' cycle. Maybe an end to the Meetings From **** will solve it -- though I just have to go out to lunch on Saturday, so that's going to be tough. I'm in this bad psychological state -- not that I feel bad, it's just a destructive thought process -- that says, "See, you've screwed up twice in a row, might as well give up." Blah.

So what did I learn? I guess that cutting out chocolate is good, but there are other bad things to over-indulge in. I think today at lunch I'm going to get something 'real', like a veggie burger with cheese even, and either a baked potato or veggies or salad on the side. No more potato/salad at lunch. I've been wanting a good restaurant veggie burger for a while.

Too much talk. Blah again.

Lunch

Snack
Dannon Fit 'n Light Yogurt

Dinner
The entire TJ's LF veggie pizza (which isn't as bad as it sounds, luckily!)

Okay, this was a much better day. I love these Trader Joe's veggie pizzas. Theoretically, it's supposed to be 3 servings, at 230 calories. Ha. I sometimes get two servings out of them. Tonight I felt starved, and since the entire day was still under 1500 calories even with the entirety of the pizza I ended up eating the whole thing. Much, much better day than the previous days. No meeting stress!
