Not A Good Day
Well it wasn't the worst day, but as far as my diet goes...not great. I did work out at the gym and burned off 330 pounds on the elliptical trainer. So I can be proud of that, but the eating...not great. I learned something though.
I cannot not eat. When I get overly busy at work I tend to drop eating because I am just way too busy. What happens next is I tend to pop just about anything into my mouth just to keep from feeling weak and ookie. Today I only was able to eat about five bites of my salad. Because it was easier, I quickly nabbed two eggrollish items (our program director's wife made them and they were amazing just not good for me) because they were easy to handle. Because I didn't eat a decent lunch, I ate two pumpkin granola bars on the way to the gym. Not only did I not enjoy a thing, I definitely did not eat well.
I did hit the gym and work out, but I got there late, because we had a staff meeting that took longer than expected. I am happy about showing up though, because I really was close to not going at all.
When I hit the house I was hungry and rather than eating something good for me, I popped a donut.
Let's face it...this day sucked.
Dinner was much better. I had one fajita with black beans (I had them cooking all day). Tomorrow...I will definitely do better. I think I may make an extra hardboiled egg so I can have something quick. I am not envisioning a simple day tomorrow. I have to record our on-air calendar and do show prep for tomorrow morning. Lessons were learned though.
Three things I am thankful for:
1- I had fun hanging out with my son today after the gym.
2- Dinner was good and I only had to pick up some frozen peppers to make it complete.
3- It is so nice to have a car with heat!
Two things I am patting myself on the back for:
1- I went to the gym even though I was pressed for time and wouldn't get the amount of workout time I wanted.
2- I said no to an icecream sandwich.
