I just finished eating my usual Monday night footlong sub. More often than not, I swing by Subway after my Monday night Weight Watchers meeting and order the same ol’ thing: Italian herbs and cheese bread, no cheese, not toasted, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, green peppers, onions, black olives and chipotle southwest sauce. AAAANNNDD I grab a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos :)
Sounds like a lot of food, right? Well, it kinda is, but not really. A six-inch all-veggie sub just won’t do it for me! Another reason I don’t have a prob eating this meal is because I don’t eat much after breakfast on Mondays. I don’t want a false weight reading! I’m definitely not starving myself; I know better than that. I eat breakfast and then I’ll snack on some veggies early on in the day, but I don’t eat too much after noonish. I drink my usual 2 liters of water during the day, but I make sure I’m finished drinking by 2:30.
You might do something similar on your weigh-in days, too, or you might think I’m crazy. Whatever the case, this is what I do and it works for me. All other days of the week are much more normal: breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks.
I actually didn’t feel well this morning, and I stayed home from work. After hopping out of bed, showering and THEN realizing I felt lightheaded and pukey (lame), I ate a banana and headed back to bed. After a little while, I got up to fix myself a real breakfast. I’m a big believer in that YOU STILL NEED TO EAT IF YOU DON’T FEEL WELL. I hate hearing when people are sick and they don’t even try to eat. Those are also the people who probably take a lot longer to get healthy. Just sayin'.
So anyway, I toasted two Kashi waffles and topped them with banana slices (yeah … another banana … I love them, duh) and sugar-free syrup.
Yummy yummy so so good.
This weird sicky feeling I had this morning totally hit me from out of the blue. You know how I’ve been busy busy busy? Could be my body’s way of telling me to take a chill pill and Frankie’s way of telling me to relax. (I am such a weirdo. Why did I need to throw Frankie into it? Now I’ve got that song and a Zoolander montage running through my head.)
After eating that first banana, waiting a bit and eating the waffle breakfast, and making sure to drink plenty of water, I felt great by late afternoon! I even made it to my WW meeting (btw I’ve lost a total of 68.2 lbs what what!) because I figured it was time to get out of the apartment. Afterward, I stopped for the sub sandy and we’re back to where we began. This post is like a wheel. Full circle, my friends. You’re welcome.
This is it for now, but since I hadn’t really updated y’all since before Halloween (yikes!), I’ve got some rewindy (totally a word) posts coming up. You’ll get to see my costume and the great meal Morgan and I made … including a recipe! Hey-o! Also, I’m gonna be talking about what happens to my eating and workouts when I’m stressed and busy. I’m sure a lot of you can relate, so stay tuned :)
