Yesterday was a true test of my commitment. I ate good all day... great breakfast, great lunch, and planned ahead for a healthy dinner. Well, yesterday I somehow lost my phone.. and was all freaked out about it. So when I got home I asked my husband if he wanted to go out to dinner and get me a new phone. He, of course, was game.
We went to a really nice seafood restaurant so I looked at the menu and saw that they had an appetizer of coconut shrimp (my absolute favorite and of course not so healthy). I couldn't find anything else that I really wanted so I ordered the shrimp. I ate a couple bites of my husbands salad, a roll (I still can eat bread at night, weird) and 3 of my shrimp and one tiny redskin potato. That was it... and I was happy. Usually when we go out to eat, I have a hard time not using that as an excuse to eat whatever and however much I want. Again, another scale reward this morning. I was down another 1.6 lbs!
Today I had a good breakfast, and got into work with my lunch (I work 12:30 pm- 9:00 pm) and forgot about the department taco bar. So I decided I would have two tacos. One of my co-workers made turkey taco meat so I had that on whole wheat shells. I added my toppings (including sour cream and guac) and ate one taco. I assessed how I felt and realized I was satisfied. I am not hungry so I am not eating anymore. This is huge for me. I have always been so focused on counting points or calories that I haven't been tuned into my own hunger.
Only one more work day this week... sadly we are open tomorrow! Happy Celebrating for those who are celebrating! And here's to a great rest of the week!
