Temptations I Resisted
Saturday, March 07, 2015
Good day today. Started out with a nice healthy breakfast. Then went tubing with my daughter, dad, niece, and nephew. After tubing my dad wanted to have lunch there. All that was available was hotdogs and nachos. I choose not to eat knowing I could get something healthy after I got home. I was however very thirsty and I wasn't going to wait to get home for a drink, but all they had available was hot cocoa and soda. Well I ended up getting a diet mountain dew. The best I could do considering.
After we got home and my daughter took her nap. I got supper ready cause we had invited my dad over for dinner. Something my daughter was very excited about. It was a new recipe that I had never tried before. Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza Casserole. It took quite alot of work but was delicious, but very high in calories. To make matters worse the only vegetable my dad will eat is corn. So I made corn for a vegetable side. I did good though. Only had less then 2 cups worth of the casserole and half a cup of corn, but the food was delicious and the company great. I also made frosted brownies for desert. I had a very small piece myself. About the size of a normal eraser, like the pink ones I used in school way back when lol.
So I have been having a hard time getting down the recommended 8 cups of water a day. So today I picked up some Crystal Light on the go. Not as good as water I know, but it has to be better than not getting all my water in right?
Another problem I've been having is overeating at night time. Usually starts when my daughter goes down for bed. 8 o'clock, but tonight has been much better I found a few things that help. Herbal tea works wonders. Delicious flavor as well as warmth in the belly helps keeps the craving to eat away. Crochet is another. Keeps my hands and mind busy enough not to dwell much on food.
Well that's it for today. Tomorrow is my first weigh in. Technically I started again on Wednesday, but I really like my weigh in days on Sunday. Just feels right somehow. So I'm not expecting much. Any little loss will make me very happy.
