Yesterday, all my troubles…

Yesterday was a hell of a day.  I woke up with a serious case of the “don’t want to”s.  I didn’t want to hit the trail, but I did after talking to Rita on the phone.  I didn’t want to go to work, but I did.  I ate way to many calories for the day and only managed to be under because of the exercise.  I think the thing that contributed to that was eating my first meal to late.  That kind of screwed with my routine.  

 

What works best for me is something like this

Breakfast

A Gala Apple, either an omelet made with 1 cup of egg whites, a whole egg, feta cheese and salsa

or A Gala Apple with a 8oz chicken breast.

 

Lunch 

10oz grilled chicken a bowl of broccoli, two servings of pinto beans or black eyed peas, and a cup or two of strawberries.

 

Dinner

Yet more chicken, about 8-10 ounces and a bag of mixed veggies.  and yet another apple or some blueberries.

 

Throw in some raisins and/or almonds as a snack through the day about 2 ounces of almonds  to 1 ounce of raisins.  

 

Give me one cheat day, and the cheat is usually a medium bag of popcorn no butter from the movie theater of my choice.  This isn’t a rigid plan but adhered to with fanatical glee but more of the framework of a routine.  If i mess with it too much I think I get thrown off a bit. 

 

The good thing about now is that I have a high calorie day I don’t just go on a binge and throw the whole week or month away.  I am doing this one day at a time.  I just get back on the horse in the morning.  My screwed up days, thankfully aren’t screwed because of eating two boxes of pasta, a loaf of bread, or two or three of those 1 pound Hershey’s chocolate bars.
