I didn’t take a picture of the temperature at work today, but you’re going to have to take my word for it that it was 91 degrees. WTF. I always joke that I wish I was a lizard that could just lay on a rock in the sun all day, but this is too much.
I welcomed the walk home today since it was cooler outside than in my office! And today I brought along reading material. I’ve decided to start from the beginning of Intuitive Eating. When I first discovered the book/RD/lifestyle I was at the height of planning a wedding/shopping for a condo/finding a new job/starting a whole new life! I really really wanted to follow Intuitive Eating, but my life was so chaotic it was very hard for me to break all my old bad habits and start fresh. But, now I am at a better place mentally and really think I should take it from the top. So, the walk home flew by with my book.
Intuitive Eating Challenge – I am actually going to start an Intuitive Eating Challenge with myself and document it here. Beginning Monday, Each week I will take one of the principles of Intuitive Eating and work on that one. I’ll explain what the book says it is and what that actually means to me. I know it’s a long process to find your Intuitive Eater, but I’m hoping one week for each principle will lay a good foundation
I had the weirdest dinner tonight…it all started when I got home from work around 5:15pm and was hungry. So, I ate some random snacks like cherries (these used to be cherries), a handful of chips, trail mix and other random stuff.
I was super pissed at myself, until I realized that I was hungry and I should have had a good snack instead of random snacking. I always over-do-it with snacking in the kitchen! But, I couldn’t eat this emergency stash granola bar at work because the f-ing heat melted it!
When it came time for dinner I considered eating cereal or a salad, but I figured I needed protein after a day of carby snacking. The only protein that sounded good was deviled eggs…and I had it with my leftover Thai food from last night.
But, earlier today I got hungry around 10:30am for lunch. I was reluctant to have a snack for some reason (I didn’t think I should have been hungry), but I caved and ate my fruit.
Lunch was a “Salad Sandwich”. I stuffed hummus, tomatoes, spinach and pickles between two slices of bread. I would have put more veggies, but cutting and cleaning them was not in the cards.
I also had yogurt and cereal…
Oh, and I was very happy to find a kiwi at work that I forgot about
I really wanted ice cream for dessert so I made banana soft serve and topped it with chocolate and cereals
I’m wrapping up my Disney Marathon Training tonight so that should be posted soon.
Question: Is anyone out there training for a race???
