my day in review

Monday, July 26, 2010

Tonight, as is usually the case, I am eating alone. My daughter is away overnight at a friend's and my husband works late each night. Yesterday, I had an "off" day with my eating and I didn't even bother tracking because it was impossible without great difficulty and it would have only discouraged me.

I've been really good about eating lately...although am still having trouble with the middle-of-the-night snacking, which I've done compulsively my entire life. I've managed to tone that down from very unhealthy things in large portions to a sugar free pudding or as I bought this week, rice pudding. 70 calories. If I can limit it to ONE snack attack a night, I'm doing well.

So, since I've been doing so well, I decided not to torture myself with guilt over my day off. It was my husband's birthday and I made enchildadas (NO, NOT the healthy kind!) and homemade ice cream. (NOT the healthy kind of that either! He'd want no part of them if they were good for you.) So I ate them, rather than making myself a separate meal as I usually would have, knowing that my eating different food would only tick him off and prompt an argument. That is why it is fortunate that I eat alone during the week.

Tonight, I'm tired and in quite a bit of pain. So instead of anything elaborate I looked around for something not "too" bad to eat. I found a Stouffer's French Bread Pizza (400 calories), the plain kind. I cut up a bunch of veggies and added them on top for some nutrition and it was yummy (for processed food). Anyway, it was quick and easy and I'm tired.

Coming up the stairs this evening, I stumbled on a step, and wrenched my already-hurting neck. I can barely move now. Just NOT what I needed! Hopefully it will be better enough tomorrow for me to make up on some of the exercises I didn't do today. All I did today was the 1.5 mi walk and it wore me out completely.

    Oh no, the last thing you needed was a fall. I'm so sorry to hear that. It seems that, for every step forward, we take two steps back. It's so frustrating!!

    You did well with the veggies on the pizza. Good choices! And, as for your hubby's birthday goodies, everyone deserves a break once in a while. It's when we take "breaks" most of the time (like me) that the scale moves in the wrong direction.

    I have a major problem with eating after dinner. It seems that as soon as I put down the fork, the little craving gremlins appear.
