It's not going to be a bad day, just busy. And if it wasn't clear by my schedule, after I leave at 8 am I will not be returning home until 10:30 pm. So, I had two choices I could choose from. Eat out for dinner and pick up quick meals/snacks in between everything OR make all my food in the morning to take with me for the day.
Before I give away which I chose (although you probably could guess), I want to let you in on my mood today. I am feeling very proud of myself. Yesterday I went over my points more than I had intended. I used 6 flex that I wasn't planning on. But here is the great thing about my WW reboot... I remember that THAT'S OK! I don't need to toss in the towel because I ate a couple extra points! AND it wasn't on anything terrible. I had veggies and ranch dressing! Between that and skittles, which is better? EXACTLY! So, I am ok with my 6 points over. And today I am making up for it by planning the entire day and MAKING SURE I stay on that plan!
And so, spoiler alert, I chose planning my whole day, preparing it, and taking it with me... So for your reading pleasure... Presenting Emily's Food For Thursday...
|My food for today|
Let me break it down for you meal by meal!
Kale and Sausage (2 points)
Kale and Sausage again (2 points)
Salad w/left over beef stroganoff (no noodles!) (8 points)
Carrots/Cucumbers with KEFIR ranch dressing (which is so so good) (3 points)
Apples and my amazing cream cheese (3 points)
Salad w/carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, sliced up turkey and the ranch dressing (5 points)
Apples and cream cheese (3 points)
Water (at least 5 water bottles full)
Coffee with milk x2 (2 points)
Ok, I know what you are going to say. And if you know me you know these meal choices are very typical of "can't do anything in moderation Tinawi". I get on "kicks". So right now, I am ALL about the ranch salad and apples with cream cheese. As I was preparing my food this morning I was actually thinking about my stir-fry kick, my plain chicken breast kick... and how funny I can be with my eating habits when I am really sticking to the plan. But it works for me. And truthfully, until this "kick" is over, I probably won't get bored. Better this "kick" than my one this summer which was filled with crepes (oh, so good, but not good for me) and cheeseburgers with fries! So, I will happily indulge in this set of foods and hope it continues to help me see results on the scale, in my body, and most importantly mentally. I love the energy I feel everyday from kicking the crap out of my system!
I am off to workout. But I can feel it... Busy day you won't get me down...
And OCTOBER 31...
here I come!
