Got up this morning and decided on a jog/walk combo. No weight lifting this week as it is my rest period. I’ll be biking tomorrow, so a wog seemed like a nice change. Did 3 miles this way.
Came back to banana chocolate oats! These were good. I haven’t had the banana oat bran in a while.
I have my mammogram Friday, and since it is my first and they want a baseline, I was told no caffeine for 72 hours prior. Waaaahhhhh!!! I usually drink decaf at night, but never in the morning. So, made some decaf that we got at the store. It just isn’t really good decaf. I should have gotten decaf green beans and roasted them myself.
I cannot stay awake to save my life today. No headache, though, thank goodness.
Lunch was a yummy combo of 1/2 cup pumpkin, vanilla chobani greek yogurt and Kashi Heart to Heart cereal. Great combo!
I have been having a hard time even keeping my eyes open this afternoon. Do you ever get like that where you physically can’t keep your eyelids open? I need a couple toothpicks or something.
Afternoon latte was decaf 🙁
John drizzled a little chocolate syrup on it – yay!
But the side snack was good:
Pumpkin bread that I made the other day! With 1/2 whole wheat flour.
I had someone email me asking about how I stay in control with food. Well, the truth is – I don’t always. I struggle sometimes (sometimes a lot). I quite often have to ask John to put things out of reach for me if I find myself continually snacking on something. I’m still not sure why that is, and I don’t really know if there is an answer to it. I kind of have a feeling that my body genetically wants to be heavy (obesity gene) and it tells me to eat more than I need to be eating in order to gain weight back. That’s the reason I don’t trust intuitive eating for me, at least at this point.
Dinner was a quick egg sandwich on an arnold thin with a laughing cow wedge. My meals have been so easy lately – they are probably boring you LOL!
Snack tonight is more decaf tea and a clementine. My tag was a little easier to understand today and seems appropriate 🙂
Thanks Mr. Lincoln!
And on one last note, Pixie is doing better. She is still tender on her feet, and I feel bad watching her try to knead, because she keeps starting and stopping because it hurts. She is a happy convalescent, though – check out this face:
