Today has been my first half day of making an effort.
1. Breakfast: I started off my day with not one but two bowls of Special K cereal. Even though this was a much better choice to the bacon biscuit I wanted to stop and get after dropping Tegan off at school, I'm pretty sure I shouldn't have crammed in two really big bowls full.
2. Mid-morning: since I can't quit my snacks cold turkey, I am going to have to retrain myself to not eat every second of the day. So mid-morning I had a Special K cereal bar. Oats & Honey is pretty good.
3. Lunch- I usually eat a stouffer's french bread pizza or make me some chicken fries and french fries. I realized today that the stouffer's pizza is 430 calories!!! I was shocked. So I made an effort to make a better decision. I bought these...
at the grocery store yesterday. Bagel Thins are really good but these are AWESOME!! You have to get the everything bagel thins. The whole bagel is 110 calories. I made me an egg white which I then topped with cheese and inhaled the whole thing. I'm pretty sure I should have left off the cheese??? Then I had some Baked Ruffles (which are also AWESOME) on the side. The only problem is that I should have probably not ate half the bag of those??
My efforts have not been easy and I seem to be floundering like a fish out of water. But I guess the point is that I am eating things that are slightly better for me than my usual choices. Maybe I should just stop here and not eat the whole rest of the day or just finish myself off with some good old break and bake cookies and just eat like I want until my metabolism decides to stop functioning!!!
