Comfort

Nothing sounded good for breakfast this morning, so I just grabbed a cliff bar out of the pantry.  It was pretty tasty!

All I could think about all morning was a sandwich wrapped in soft bread.  That’s exactly what I had for lunch!

Dinner was a big bowl of macaroni and cheese.

I mixed in some bell peppers to amp up the nutrient power.

A big bowl of comfort food was exactly what I needed!

Crazy

Today has been very hectic. 

I didn’t sleep well last night but had to get up early to run over to the doctor’s office to get a shot before I missed too much work.  I ate a cliff bar in my car because it was easy.

It was a different kind today, and I really liked this one.  The flavors seem to be hit or miss for me, but I know they have to have other good ones, so I was excited this one was fantastic.

I had an awful day at work.  Things just didn’t seem to go right for me at all today.  Apparently I was super scatterbrained Friday and had to fix all my mistakes today while the phone rang off the hook.

Because I missed 45 minutes this morning I had lunch at my desk.  Luckily I snapped this picture with my phone to prove it.

Finally 5:00 rolled around and I finished up a few things and started to head home.  I was thinking I would have lasagna since I really don’t have energy for much else, but last minute I decided to stop and grab Subway.  I know I said no more fast food, but I feel like this day warrants it.

I had a chicken breast sandwich on 9 grain wheat with green peppers, lettuce, and chipotle sauce.  I had some SunChips on the side.  On any other day I might have been disappointed with this sandwich but after the day I had it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten.

I know it’s my day to run, and I know I said no excuses, but this shot makes my hip muscle so sore it’s uncomfortable to walk on.  I’ll make up for it, but today I just want to curl up in bed and watch movies and after the day I had I’m going to let myself.  I’ll just skip today and continue on Wednesday.

Here’s to hoping your day was better than mine!

Landmarks

Today I have officially lost ten pounds since I started! 

It really hasn’t been as bad as I expected.  I have been successful by weighing myself each day and keeping a food log.  This way I know how many calories I have left for the day and can adjust what I eat accordingly. 

I still would like to lose ten more pounds, but I’m making great progress so far!

I like to keep Cliff Bars around for a snack or something during the day.  Today I had my favorite bar, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut.  It was awesome.

After those yummy quesadillas yesterday, I made another variation today.

I added pesto, bell pepper, green onion, and queso fresco in a whole wheat tortilla and heated it on the George Foreman until the cheese was nice and melty.

It was so fresh and good!  I loved it!

I’m trying to consider content ideas.  Is there anything different you would like to see here?
