Today I did not eat so well. I began with my normal oatmeal and then…it went south or so I thought before I really thought about it.
My husband had the day off and lately he has not had too many of these. I knew it would not be the healthiest eat day because of that. When he is home we tend to go out to eat and I am not sure that it can compare with a home cooked meal as far as health is concerned.
We went to Fudruckers for lunch (I had a few crackers and probably not even an ounce of cheese before we left since I was pretty hungry). I got a buffalo burger (sorry no photos, I still feel like a weirdo pulling out my camera in a restaurant to take a photo of my food) with onion rings. I am trying to eat intuitively and it was successful! I stopped halfway into the burger because I was full and left a few onion rings on the plate too! I thought this might inspire me to devour sweet stuff, but it didn’t! I was full and did not want to eat anything else.
We went shopping and then when we got back I was craving chocolate. I dipped into our bridge mix supply and ate some. Probably more than I wanted to but not crazy out of control!
Then I went for a run and was able to run for 3.5 miles with no pain but then after that I felt a little in my good knee! So I walked the last .5 miles home and iced both my knees. They feel good though, no pain now and I did not even have any Advil!
I had to get showered and cleaned up to take my daughter to dance. We did not have time for dinner and at that point I was not all that hungry.
After dance we ordered a pizza and I thought it was going to lead to ice cream, cookies, brownies, and candy. Once again it did not! I ate pizza until I felt full (about 2 and 1/2 pieces.)
Overall I ate probably too much but I did not go crazy! That seems like progress to me. Yesterday I had a small binge, but it was pretty tame. Today was better. I think things will continue to improve.
