Yeah it's Friday!! The day I wait for all week. I didn't have time to do a shake this morning so I took the tub of cottage cheese to work with me and an apple. But first I ate that scone from the night before.
These little scones are ok but I was thinking to myself why am I even eating this? It's not THAT good. I'd rather have a muffin, something chocolate or nice slice of bread (like banana bread or something)
I'm pretty sure I've ate more cottage cheese than anyone I know. I was to the point of being grossed out by it not that long ago but I think I'm ok with it again. I like to mix 1/2 a cup of it with some fruit of some kind. This apple wasn't very good. I think it was a little under-ripe.
Everyone at home had spaghetti for dinner on Thursday night so I didn't bring any of those left overs to work. Instead I had the last of the chicken tortilla soup, zucchini and green salad. I knew I was going to be hungry again soon.
While I was sitting there someone brought in left over brownie bites and some other pure deliciousness that I would like to face plant in. Oh and also there was a pecan fudge pie thing on the break table too.
Back to work before my lunch time is over to get away from it all. Eventually I took a walk over to vending machine and looked for something snacky. Not the best choices but it got me through.
STARVING when I got home and in a bad mood because of it. I made a veggie omelet with 2 eggs, some red fat cheese, onions, peppers and mushrooms and threw some salsa on top.
Ahhhh finally not hungry.
I took up my spot on the couch and decided I better start my book club book. I started it and finished it by midnight. (and that's with a little nodding off time and stopping to make dinner)
I can't believe my dog let me sit like that for a long time.
For dinner I wasn't even hungry but everyone else was getting restless so I dragged myself away from my book to make the meal I had planned. Skinny Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy. Originally I was going to make the cauliflower potatoes but those bad boys were $4 a head so I decided I'd just make regular mashed potatoes for the fam bam and made myself mashed sweet potatoes (yams).
Ahhh so good.
I actually finished the day under calories (my target was 1671 for a one pound a week weight loss but I weigh every day so it adjust a bit depending on if I go up or down). I finished at 1491. I need to work on doing more protein at work. I think I"m going to start buying a flat of eggs when I go shopping and boil some up for work snacks. I definitely felt fuller when I made the omelet with whole eggs instead of egg whites. I think it's worth the extra calories.
