A Good Day

I had a good day today. I saw Miss Donna today. I gave her the link to this blog so hopefully I will have someone else reading it. While I was talking to her, I came up with a great idea for a blog entry..and then promptly lost it. Hopefully it will come back to me sometime during this next year.

I started off the day with some low sugar instant oatmeal with milk. I spent some of my early morning making lunch for my husband and me. My lunch today was a little later than usual, causing me to be very hungry when I actually sat down to eat my sammich on Johnnie Bread. I let myself have a snack of string cheese around 10am. Along with the sandwich, I had some pretzels and a handful of peanuts.

It's been two days since I've had any soda or caffeine. I've been drinking water throughout the day instead. The headaches are coming, I can feel it. It's also been over a week since I've had Subway for lunch. I used to do Subway 3-4 times a week because it's conveniently located across the street from the bank. The last time I lost weight, I pretty much stopped eating Subway except for once a week when I would allow myself a 6in sandwich.

For dinner tonight, I made a dinner salad and then two pieces of frozen pizza. I usually would eat 4 pieces, or half of the pizza while Pat would eat the other half. There are two pieces in the fridge right now, probably saved for dinner on Friday night. Tomorrow is Wicked so Pat and I are going out for dinner after work and before the show. Yay for Wicked.

On a side note, kind of, I did have a cookie after dinner. Does that make this good day a bad day?


  1. sounds like a good day! you can't totally cut out the sweets or you will drive yourself insane. And you only had one cookie where I would have had six

  2. One thing that really helped me kick start my diet was recording what i eat. Tedious? Yes. But only for a few weeks. Once you get a handle on what your typical caloric intake is and should be, you can generally estimate what you should eat in a day.
    One website i really liked was The Daily Plate ( It does most of the work for you.
    I periodically have to go back to it and check up on myself, especially when i hit a plateau. Just be honest with yourself and it will work wonders :)
