Real emotional up and down day but steady as she goes calorie-wise
Thursday, June 23, 2011
I awoke at 4 am with hunger pangs, not an unusual occurence if I go to sleep gnawing over a problem. I had an early morning meeting, so off I went. It was a simple comment from someone in the meeting that I seemed less focused and I told him the problem that had awakened me. In about 2 sentences, his kind and common sense made the solution obvious. A difficult thing will have to be done, but the long run prognosis is good.
I feared my calories because I was in the car most of the day with a quarter bag of roasted almonds, but I stopped several times and got small bits of protein (thank you 7-eleven for hard-boiled eggs and small colby jack packages!).
This is the first major stress since starting SparkPeople and my past approached has been to gobble all kinds of forbidden foods (Butterfingers, ice cream, Hersey's, salty vinegar chips) all day long. Today I stopped at a hospital cafeteria and enjoyed their chicken stir fry and squash. I did give in to a small cup of Ben and Jerry's. Wow, who knew such a small contained packed 250 calories. But I had room for those calories.
