Right now, I'm just trying to take it a day at a time.
One thing I think I should start doing with the blog is being more accountable for the foods I'm eating. So my goal is to take pictures of what I'm eating day to day. This way I will be able to visualize (and keep) my goals, and you will too!
I don't think I will be posting pictures of snacks, unless they are beautiful..which they usually are not!
Breakfast was Raspberry Protein Pancakes, with warm Mango topping
and Door County Highlander's Grogg coffee (notes of irish cream and dark caramel in the roast UH YUM!) with Coconut Milk, and Almond Joy Creamer.
Lunch was a turkey burger and Kale Chips, topped with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.
Dinner was the same
I had a snack of Stone Ground Whole Wheat Crackers, and after work I'll have pumpkin with yogurt, cinnamon, and stevia. Plus I'm on cup 7 of 11 glasses of water for the day's hydration goal.
Total cal count- 1278. Smack dab in the middle of Sparkpeople's Goal for my nutrition. One good thing about this picture project, is that Marc and I were painting the front porch all afternoon and ended up STARVING! So, I wasn't thinking and asked Marc if he wanted McDonalds. If it weren't for accountability to the blog, I would have had something that might not have been bad calorie wise, but bad everything else wise! So this is a good idea for me!
Sadly, I'm not losing weight, I'm worried about 30 pages worth of term papers that I haven't even touched, I'm worried about my family, I'm worried about finances (read more school), ETC.
But no matter how hard it may be to keep a smile on my face, I'm going to work twice as hard on everything, and at least give out smirks.
Good things are seemingly out of reach, but every rough patch passes with time. I just am on the crest of the wave at the moment.
