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


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.



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



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.  





Here is the plan for the day.  I could probably do without the processed jerky but it is a quick way to get some protein. 


Out to walk and.maybe do week 2 day 2 of c25k.
