6:30am- granola bar
feelings: This was pure energy. I was freaking exhausted because I woke up an hour earlier than planned... This was to stay awake while driving. Wasn't hungry. Felt justified eating though, because I was way too tired to drive otherwise.
8-10am- Breakfast: 2 pop tarts
feelings: I ate one at 8 and the other at 10. I was actually hungry both times, but I am feeling some guilt because all I've eaten today is junk.
12pm- Lunch: beefaroni bowl, celery and carrot sticks
feelings: I ate with my fun co-workers, and I ate the noodles very slowly. This is one of my favorite work meals, because I am able to eat it slowly enough to spread it out over 45 minutes or so. I don't know why I can't do this with other lunches. Drinking coffee now. Feeling satisfied with my lunch choices and happy with my day, but a little frustrated about a tiff that I had with Stacey this morning.
7pm- Dinner/snack combo: leftover chicken mixed with broccoli and rice, with a side of cottage cheese and fruit.
feelings: I definitely waited too long between eating, because I was starving by this time. This was really tasty. I'm getting really good at heating up leftover meat and making a meal out of it with some veggies, grains, and spices. I cooked the chicken with some cream of chicken soup and vegetables a couple of days ago in the crock pot, and added some broccoli and rice to it, and the result was delicious! I feel proud of myself for cooking dinner two days in a row. Perhaps I'm learning a new routine of cooking when I come home from work.
8pm- snack: ice cream
feelings: I ate this pretty shortly after dinner, so I'm confident that it wasn't hunger eating. It was taste eating. I wanted something sweet! Two scoops and done. No guilt.
9pm- 1oz bag chips
feelings: Again, taste hunger. I wanted something salty to finish my day with. No guilt, but I'm unhappy with this decision because my stomach hurts. Tomorrow I will try to stick with the meal plan better.
