I think I’ve been shorting myself on my breakfast. I just end up being too hungry all the rest of the day. Over the weekend, I started upping the quantity of my egg white omelets to a more satisfying level and I think it’s working a bit better. There’s always some tweaking to be done around here. I bought the southwest version of EggBeaters (they were on sale) and I really like them much better than just the plain egg whites. I’m sure it has to do with the sodium. But if I watch it the rest of the day, I’ll be fine.
Went to the gym at lunch for treadmill time. About a half hour in, I got hit with waves and waves of nausea. I wasn’t working that hard, so I don’t know what was going on. Went ahead and went to lunch, thinking some food might help. That was a mistake. Ate a few bites and had to leave the restaurant. While walking back to work, the nausea stopped as soon as it started. Very, very weird. And then I was hungry, as I’d bought and paid for lunch, but only ate a few bites. Ended up at the vending machine in the afternoon, but didn’t overdo it calorie wise. Normally, when I start with that junk, I’m like your Grandma Nettie playing the slots in Reno - just feeding in coins. Yesterday was different.
Today it is back to the gym at lunch, followed by the postponed dinner with Barbie. We are going to an Italian restaurant tonight, so that will be a challenge. She says she’s trying to eat more healthfully, so perhaps between the two of us, we can steer clear of the worst of it. I’m leaning towards the chilled fresh asparagus appetizer and perhaps the soup of the day, depending, or maybe just the grilled chicken and vegetables. There are good, clean choices to be made here, if I choose to make them.
And just when I make the decision to get back on the bus, the temperature drops by 25 degrees! Oh well. I’ve got enough warm clothes to deal with it.
I am loving my streaming netflix dvr thingy. Last night, I watched Roxanne. I am one of those silly people who will watch a favorite movie over and over.
Goals for March: some form of exercise and track food every day
Looking over the above menu, what would you choose?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Decide when it's easy.
