Shooting Star Day 3

Monday, May 09, 2011

Yesterday i was extremely happy with my eating. I had to work 11-8 and there is a one hour lunch break, during which I tend to go and hit any fast food joint that is closeby. So having learned that I like crunchy things, I packed raw cauliflower to munch on for that effect (instead of chips), a tomato, a hard boiled egg, a little ciabatta roll, greek yogurt with Mango and a few strawberries. Well, and a slice of friendship bread I had baked the night before. But just look at the difference in meal planning. I was very happy. When I came home, my daughter had started to make me a mothers day lasagna with leftover Tofu and kale. She had to leave, so I ended up taking the lasagna noodles, threw the leftovers on top of them and added a bit of tomato sauce and just a smidge of cheese grated on top of them. Much better choice. I think I am really on the right track here!!!! I couldn't do any exercise because of the work, but i had none planned for yesterday anyway, so I didn't mess up. Today is 40 minutes of exercise (preferably cardio if my knee lets me). I have a lawn to mow and want to do some Yoga for stretching out my tired bones.

    I love reading when people plan their meals. It is inspiring to me. Although I just have not been able to do it. keep it up, keep bloging about it and maybe your words will hit me over the head. Gently of course.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    That is great eating, especially when there are fast-food temptations close by (I hate that!). Good work having a healthy dinner and and lunch too!

    cauliflower! emoticon I love especially cauliflower pickles! I always plan and pack my food a day before and let some extra calories for unexpected temptations. otherwise it's hard to stay within range especially on the 24 hours shifts.
