At that time, I think I was reading Cosmopolitan magazine (or something similar) and had come across an article on 'Tips for Losing Weight.' Keeping a journal of your daily eats was a 'tip.' It was supposed to show just how much extra snacking you were doing, etc. And wasn't that everyone's goal in college? To be ultra skinny? I fit in things then that I still have - but can't believe I once got into. Back then I felt fat, huge. Never satisfied, I suppose.
Listing it out loud, I felt like a freakin' piggie.
I still try to think about it at the end of each day. Did I do good or bad?
Here's what I ate/drank today:
A piece of peanut butter (reduced fat/all-nautural) and jelly (sugar free) whole wheat toast.
Grilled chicken wrap from Sonic with light ranch.
2 Diet Sunkists (Bought one, two came out!)
Walnuts and Raisins
Light string cheese
Brown rice with peas (on a budget this week - and already spent $ on lunch)
Dessert/After dinner snack:
Low carb vanilla yogurt with oatmeal, almonds, and ground flax seed.
Late, late night snack:
One small slice of pork tenderloin
One piece of whole wheat toast with whipped cream cheese.
Not bad. You can tell I got hungy when I got home from work half past midnight, though.
Clearly, I'm trying to eat healthy. Otherwise this list would have on it "piece of giant cookie" - which was sitting on my counter when I got home taunting me. I didn't eat it! That was a huge test.. and I passed. Not cool, though. We can't have that stuff just laying around. It's dangerous.Definitely trying to detox a bit after the Memorial Day crap I ate over the weekend.
So that's it Amy, we can go to sleep now.
