Ugh. It’s been an exhausting, frustrating, stressful day. But, as you will see from my tallys, I have successfully avoided stress eating! Huzzah!
Apples and Almond Butter
A good serving of Gina’s Fridge Leftover Surprise
Crystal light lemonade –approx 3/4 of cup (note: This is NOT PALEO)
Apples and Almond Butter*
*I admit that this dinner choice was a bit of a stress-induced choice. I LOVE apples and almond butter — it’s a great snack and I just wan’t feeling Fridge Surprise for dinner. With grocery day looming, it was pretty much a choice between Apples and Almond Butter or Fridge Surprise. It did make me “feel better,” so I guess it counts, but I suppose it’s better than stress-eating out of the bad food cabinet.
I declare today a “woot” day, food-wise.
We already had a word-heavy post today, so I will keep the word count down for this post.
Breakfast was a half an apple.
Lunch I had some egg, ham, and kinda had some salad. I put some spinach, cucumbers, and carrots dressed with basalmic vinegarette in a bowl… and then proceeded to eat the spinach.
Dinner I had taco salad, but it sorta got ruined by the spoonfull or two I had of leftover chocolate icing. The important thing, though, is that I stopped eating when I was not hungry anymore.
Anyway, I promised pictures of my TKD stuff, so I arranged it all for your viewing pleasure:
So there’s my certificate, my yellow belt, and my broken board. On top is my grading sheet, with A’s circled for every part of the test. The tester suggested that I do my kicks higher (not waist-high, though I really do think that’s all I can do for my in-out and out-in stretch kicks…). The writing at the bottom also said I had good blocks during my forms. 🙂
So now we come to the title of the post.
As you know, I weighed myself at the beginning of the week and was disappointed to see the 180 glaring back at me from the scale. I posted here, and wrote it off to water weight, sick weight, and other such things, as did most of my commentors. While I still believed that, it tasted sweet victory when I hopped on the scale this morning, out of curiosity, to see a nice sweet 175.
Let’s face it. I’m still a sexy beast no matter what that scale says, but it’s pretty cool — I have reached my first milestone.
10 pounds down, 40 to go.
