Dealing with a lot of personal issues right now... I may write about what's going on later on down the road but right now, I just don't feel like it. I've vented to my man and now I'm drained. One thing however, I'm not letting these issues interfere with my weight loss. I'm down 2lbs to 192lbs this week.
I've been walking a lot for stress relief... a lot.
Eating my way through a tough time won't get me anywhere. Calories not over 1600 per day. I've kept to nutritionally sound food even though Halloween treats were everywhere. Some well-meaning colleague even left a pile of chocolates on my desk. Gah!! I just scooped then up and put them in the common room. They disappeared soon enough.
Here's my food plan from last week:
Scrambled eggs with peppers and mushrooms (sometime with smoked salmon)
Steel-cut oatmeal with berries and almond milk
Squash Soup with
Salad with grilled meat, or canned salmon
Left-overs from previous night's supper
Stir fried veggies (broccoli, carrots, peppers) and chicken
Roast chicken and veggies (beets, sweet potato, onions) on a bed of kale
Baked trout Amandine with tons of extra green beans
Stuffed peppers with lean ground beef and shredded carrots, onion and celery (no cheese!)
Either fruit or carrot sticks
(I'm still off the natural almonds for the time being because they are too tasty and I end up eating more than I should)
Sugarless gum (trying to give this up but I cant do it yet)
