Today was kind of a long, hard day but I managed to pull through okay.
First of all I woke up this morning (early) to the sound of my sister fighting with my dad about not wanting to go to school. Eh. Not fun. Normally I wouldn't have allowed this affect my eating for the day because I get very upset when people in my family fight, BUT I have learned to work through the anger and sadness and not cut back!! Yea.
Later on in the day I walked to the library to chill and give myself time to calm down about the fight this morning. Even though it was REALLY windy all day, I found my walk to be quite enjoyable and relaxing. The sun rays beat down, the air was warm and I just felt good.
The rest of the day went okay too, although it was pretty--yawn--booooorrring.
But then after coming home from work, I had myself a d-licious dinner and went FOOD SHOPPING.
I never realized this, but I actually enjoy shopping for my own food. I like walking up and down the aisles, and scouting for new products that I can eat. I especially love going to Whole Foods and Vitamin Cottage! They have the best products, all natural, totally healthy and I love seeing the different varieties of food. Pumpkin seed butter, Carob Powder, Hempmilk:) It's like being in a museum. I love it. Sometimes I don't even need food, and I just go in to look around.
I finally remembered to put the card in my phone so I can post pictures now!! Here's a little of what went down today.
That's an eggwhite and tuna patty-ish thing (I microwaved the eggwhite and the tuna together in a bowl) on my numero uno No-Salt bread, with one ounce of avochado and assorted veggies on the side. I also had a Granny Smith apple and a cup of Silk Lite Vanilla. Yummy.
Did you know they sold biscotti in stores??? I didn't. BTW, biscotti is Italian. I learned that from my class this week:)
But I found this instead! Greek yogurt with--gasp!--figs on the bottom!! It was too good to be true! Never before have I seen something quite so scrumptious looking. The fig is absolutely my FAVORITE fruit. I used to love snacking on the Nabisco Fig Newton's when I was a little girl. One of the days I am so going to eat the Newman's version! They look so yummy!!!
I ended up not going with the fig yogurt:( though. Sigh. Stupid ED said that it had waay to much fat in it. Pshaw. But I will be back to try it someday. Instead I ended up getting
Two containers of plain, non-fat
Greek Yogurt. I can't wait to eat it tomorrow with breakfast, because I've never tried this brand before.
Here's the full eats!
1 TB Peanut Butter
Cascade Cherry Yogurt (mixed with the hot oatbran it tastes like a cherry cobler!! so goood!)
Granny Smith Apple
10 Carrots (for some weird reason I always crave carrots with breakfast)
2 Slices No-Salt Bread
1/4c All Whites
About 1 oz of Tuna
Slices of Plum Tomato
1 oz Avochado!
Red Delicious Apple
1 c Silk Lite Vanilla
1/2c of frozen blueberries (I am working on building up my snack again but I am happy I can at least to this. Soon I'm going to upgrade it to a full fruit and then after that more and then I won't be so nervous. I think it was stupid anyway that I cut out the snack though. I get soo hungry and I didn't have a problem eating it before. Stupid ED....)
1c Private Selection Low Sodium Tomato Soup
1 TB Nutritional Yeast
6 oz of Tofu
Granny Smith Apple
