I did it! I made it through the day without going over my calories. That God for Diet Coke is all I can say! I may or may not have drank a really really large bottle all by myself. BUT I didn't over eat. We'll work on that Diet Coke addiction later....
After work today I went to Home Depot and got some stuff for the soil so I can work on getting my seedlings in the ground. While I was gone I left my sunflower seedlings out in the sun to let them adjust a bit. When I got back some asshole bird had snapped a bunch off. And then left them. MURDERER.
I also ran into the grocery store to pick up some nuts and cottage cheese. Thanks to Facebook and everyone diagnosing me starving at 10:00 am I needed to get some more low cal protein sources. That reminds me I was going to boil some eggs. I need to do that still.
When I got home I worked in the yard for an hour. Listened to my neighbors talk to each other. Must be nice to have such great friends living across the street. Why is it that the only people that are my age that move in around here are weird?
Did you know working in the yard weeding for an hour burns 328 calories?
Came in and made dinner. Chili Rubbed Pork Chops. Except FAIL we were out of Chili powder?? How does that happen? So I did a quick Google and found a substitution of some hot sauce and cumin and oregano. I was already adding cumin so I just added more and a shake of oregano. Didn't bother with the hot sauce. It was a bit more runny but I think they were still pretty tasty!
After dinner I worked on making myself some 100 calorie snack packs. You sure don't get very many almonds for 100 calories. 14. FOURTEEN. Not much. You get a few more pistachios, I think it was 33 or something close to that.
and some 90 calorie cups of cottage cheese. They were out of fat free cottage cheese at the grocery store. I didn't know it was possible to be out of cottage cheese.
So I got my bag packed for tomorrow. Should make it much easier to get through the work day. Hopefully I won't feel so hungry all day like I did for most of the day today!Pin It
