Finally a day I can be proud of!

Yesterday was really good. I posted here in the morning to say what I would eat for the entire day, and I stuck to that plan entirely. Dinner was only one Heb Nat'l low fat hot dog, one large baked potato with reduced fat sour cream, and at least a cup of broccoli. I seriously wanted a snack last night, pretty much from the minute I finished dinner until I went to bed. I stuck it out though, mostly because I already had all my food logged, I knew it was just over 1500 calories for the day, and I didn't want to screw it up.

It's amazing to me how long it must have been since I've actually stuck to my plan for a whole day. I know it's been too long since I've actually logged in everything that I've eaten for the day. Usually I taper off somewhere after lunch, because I eat something that's too hard to calculate (usually because it's something I shouldn't be eating).

But yesterday, I did it!

And today, I ate breakfast when I got to work. It was an orange and a slice of Banana Bread a la Roni. 210 calories sofar for the day. I'll have a snack before lunchtime, and before I eat lunch I'm going running outside with my friend. I'm really nervous about it, because we haven't run together in at least a month, and I've been running on a treadmill since then. For some reason, going "back outside" always makes me really nervous. Especially with her, because I'm sure she'll be in better shape than I am. It doesn't matter though, right? It's not a competition with her, just going out there for myself, and keeping each other accountable.

Lunch will be about the same as yesterday, and I'm not sure what dinner will be. We don't have anything at home to cook... so, we'll see. But I do promise this: whatever it is, I will post it here, AND I will enter it into my log at Caloriecount.
