Happy 2013 Everyone! I've got some different New Year related posts coming up. I'm pretty excited for 2013!
I did a brave thing the other day...I tried on some clothes I haven't worn in a looong time! And on New Year's Day! I am running low on jean that fit, so I pulled out 5 extra pairs to try on. (A couple years ago, I bought 10 pairs from a woman on Craigslist who had had WLS @ something like $3 a piece...good deal!). This thought wouldn't have crossed my mind last year because I know none of them would have fit!
-1 pair was a wee bit big
-1 pair was a wee bit small
-3 pairs were perfect!
That felt so good! One brand of jeans (2 pairs) had the size missing, but the other one was a 20, which makes me feel good that any cut of size 20 will fit me at this point. I also have some 18s at my dad's house, which I will be anxious to try on.
It really felt great going in to the new year with a victory! That and I ran a little farther than a 5K...well, it was icy so I ran as much as I could. Probably a mile of running. But I was the only girl out there on that beautiful day. There was even a group of guys running and one called out "nice job". It's the little things!
And I have given up candy for the month of January, so today was hard several times when I wanted some! To be more accountable, I tracked my eats today, so here we go!
Breakfast: Smoothie! I got a wonderful single serving blender for Christmas. I bought V8 Fruit juice and included that, Fage 0% yogurt, frozen fruit blend (peaches, strawberries, pineapple, mango), some carrots, and a few apple slices. It came out a little thick/textury, but it was pretty filling.
Snack, not pictured: Iced Coffee mmmm!
Lunch was the same as yesterday and tomorrow: A turkey burger, sauted yellow squash and zuchinni, lettuce, carrots and some ranch. Nom nom nom.
But I couldn't resist a few cookies after lunch. I had them yesterday (a co-worker has them on her desk) and they were gross. Why, why did I think they would be okay today? Got to get a plan for tomorrow to avoid these!
I then had the apples slices pictured in the lunch pic that came with a small amt of carmel.
On the way home I had a "Cashew Cookie" Larabar.
Dinner was a bunch of things mashed together. I was really wanting shrimp and green curry. I found some veggie pasta and actually used the veggies that were leftover in my freezer that I made way back then in this post (still good!). Pretty good! I'm proud that I was resourceful in my quest for a yummy meal. I also added a piece of Macroni Grill's super duper thin crust pepperoni pizza.
Then I wanted candy again. Aargh. So I had 1/2 cup cereal and 1/2 cup milk instead.
Not the perfect day, could have been worst. I also got 27 mins of exercise in too (2 different vids from spark people).
Any victories over food lately?
What are you avoiding this time of year?
