Hot vs. Cold

If you know me at all then you could have predicted that I would choose the Whole Foods salad bar for lunch! It’s my favorite restaurant after all :)

I couldn’t decide between the hot food or cold food so I got a small container of each. In the hot container – 2 raviolis, fried vegetable rice (with brown rice) and sweet and sour tempeh. The tempeh wasn’t good, I guess I’m not a sweet and sour girl.DSCN1199

In the cold container –  my usual = veggies on the bottom and small scoops of salads on top :) At the end I added a little bit of Vegetarian Pad Thai & it ended up covered my masterpiece.DSCN1201

My peep brought by some Pirate’s Booty that I couldn’t turn down…DSCN1203

My afternoon snacks were an apple and yogurt.DSCN1204

The yogurt was actually one of those new Better Whey yogurts. I was sent some coupons to review it for the blog a while back, but wedding stuff made me push that back! I’ll give a full review after I try another flavor or two…DSCN1205

I also had a small cup of cereal with almond milk – I just really wanted something sweet, but I wasn’t hungry.

DSCN1213This is my favorite WF salad bar item = Israeli Couscous with eggplant and stuff…I added the garbanzos for protein :)

DSCN1209I bought it from the deli section because it lists the ingredients. I am so going to recreate this at home now!!!!

I had a few bites while making dinner.

Dinner was pita pizzasDSCN1217

We have to eat outside since we still don’t have a dining room table (and aren’t getting one until after the move).DSCN1216

DSCN1221Dessert! I have been craving a good chocolate cookie for the longest time so I finally broke down and bought some ready made dough at TJ’s. Excellent!

I may or may not have had a few bites of the dough too…

Tomorrow is another crazy day in the life of R.E.R. I’ve got to start packing for a little drive across the U.S.

Intuitive Eating – It’s been a while since I’ve talked about I.E. mostly because it has been very hard for me to follow I.E. when I’ve been so busy/stressed. The R.D. basically said I should focus on treating myself well and worry about my eating when everything calms down. I have been listening to the Intuitive Eating CDs and I love them.

I also got a notebook that I’m starting to write in. I was really against tracking until now because it’s something I was obsessed with when I had disordered eating – I wrote down everything I ate – binge or restrictive days alike. I found a lot of these notebooks last week as I was moving out of my mom’s to Ben’s. It’s really sad how messed up my outlook was. I guess I should just be happy I’m on the right track even if I’m going super slow…

This notebook is going to track my runs – for training purposes & track my eats – for training/health purposes. I’m not going to judge myself, I’m just trying to use it to observe my habits. I.E. is super big on not judging yourself, just observing. It’s helpful.

    Congrats on getting back into IE! It’s such a process so appreciate the progress you make every single day. One meal, or one hour of intuitive eating is a success. Think of it like a life-long bank. For every hour of listening to yourself, you bank that so even if you have a tough meal, or a tough day, you’ve already got tons in the bank and there’s no reason to beat yourself up about it!
