So today went great. Well, toward the end of the day I had a little trouble bringing myself back to reality but it really was a good day! Here's my FLOG:
Breakfast: multigrain cheerios, milk
Snack: coffee w/ milk and sugar, 4 tortilla chips
Lunch: 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1/2 cup corn, 1/4 cup fruit cocktail, water
Snack: granola bar, water, another cup of coffee
Dinner: celery sticks, 2 slices frozen pizza
After dinner (this is where it gets a little ugly): popcorn (maybe 1 1/2 cups?), 1/4 bag cotton candy, 2 nutrigrain bars
Here's where I went wrong after dinner: We took our girls to the last high school football game of the season. We bought popcorn there and I had some with them. On the way out we got a bag of cotton candy. I was shocked to discover that cotton candy has only 100 calories FOR THE WHOLE BAG. So I didn't feel as bad about eating some of that. Then after the girls were asleep and my husband and I had watched the hockey game (and he had subsequently fallen asleep on the couch), I raided the pantry and ate 2 nutrigrain bars.
Not beating myself up here and in days past I would either not stop with the 2 or would have opted for something much more unhealthy than a Nutrigrain bar. But I realized after I ate them that I should have just had a glass of water and called it a night. But hey, I'm learning here!
Once again, just to remind myself: THE FOOD YOU EAT STILL COUNTS, EVEN IF NOBODY SEES YOU EAT IT.
