Back to work

Thursday, September 10, 2015

Never ceases to amaze me how quickly old habits come back.

Got called in to sub at a local high school yesterday. Packed a great lunch (salad in a mason jar) and a protein shake for snack. Had 2 bottles of water and my morning cup of coffee. I was good and had my protein right on time. Drank my water. Went at lunch to get a fork to eat my salad. Came back with 24 oz of coffee instead. That's all I had until I got home. NOT OK! Can't do just salads for lunch when I'm working. I NEVER remember the fork (maybe I need to keep a box of them in the car). Oh yeah and was so tired, came home to papa murphy's pizza (yuck). Stayed in my calorie range for the day, but didn't eat well and didn't feel good most of the night.

DH made an interesting comment last night about the pizza. He says, "I just can't put away the 3-4 pieces like I used to. All of that greasy fat just makes me feel blah." This coming from a man who 4 years ago would eat no lean meat whatsoever. Prime rib fat was his favorite treat. (Makes me shudder to even type such a thing). Yet now greasy pizza makes him ill. LOL!

Seriously thinking about doing a 3 week cleanse with no animal fats and only plant based oils. I need to bust through this plateau, and the last time I went to a temporary vegan diet, I felt great and it restarted my metabolism....Thinking...Getti
ng DH to agree to a 3 week trial is the hard part.

Well, time to get ready for work. :-)

    I agree--salad alone doesn't hold me, either. I've got to have protein. I eat cottage cheese, blueberries, and Kashi Go Lean for lunch. I can wolf it down in a short time as we only have about 30 minutes for lunch, if we're lucky. Keep Sparking!

    I'm glad you got some work -- so early in the school year, too. Hey, you did some things right. Just a few tweaks needed -- like planning for something nutritious and simple (and quick!) for dinner after a long day.

    Dippin carrots and celery is good, maybe in some tasty hummus! No Fork required. I never got into the salad in a mason jar deal, but I use to pack my fork in with my salad. I just used a plastic container with lid.

    Pizza never did me any favors either! Ack. Good luck on persuading DH on the veggie cleanse.

    I've been facing a similar challenge - I'm eating within my calorie and fat ranges, but I've not been eating *well*. I've been busy at work and that just saps all the energy out of me for cooking. I hate to say it, but it's reassuring to know I'm not the only one struggling with that. It's inspiring - I'm totally cooking at home tonight!
