Success!

Today turned out to be a success food-wise and I’m feeling so much better about things in general. Thanks again for all the encouragement!

Snacks

I packed some dried edamame (and some almonds hidden at the bottom!) that I ate while at work this afternoon.Β 

I got home around 5 and was getting hungry but wasn’t ready for dinner. In the past I definitely would have just ignored it, let myself get hungrier and hungrier, then finally inhale dinner way too fast and keep eating all night. Not anymore! I decided to have a small snack to tide me over a couple hours until I was ready for dinner. A little banana supreme pudding did the trick!

Dinner

I had originally planned on shrimp and brown rice for dinner but when I really just wasn’t feeling it. In the spirit of listening to my body I knew that if I ate that I would be left unsatisfied, so I thought about what I was craving and Amy’s Lasagna really sounded good and comforting. I had it with a fresh salad and it really hit the spot! It was delicious (as are all Amy’s products!) and definitely left me full and happy.

Dessert

After dinner I did a little homework and then decided to just let myself relax a little. I don’t have anything too pressing to do, and don’t have any more work due this week so instead of slugging through another chapter of textbook reading I curled up in my bed with my laptop and caught up on some TV (gossip girl, greys, and the office). I feel a little lazy but I think I deserve a little break!

I had a meeting at 10 and when I got back it was definitely time for dessert–a ‘frozen yogurt’ and a chocolate vitamuffin-Yum!


Now I’m full, happy, and sleepy! Definitely bedtime. Goodnight!

    I’m so glad you’re feeling better πŸ™‚ I really needed the reminder that in the grand scheme of things, it’s just one week. Thank you for that, Sarah!

    Mm, love those Jello puddings! I haven’t had the banana in quite a while though – time to bring it back?!

    That lasagna looks amazing! And I love the way you froze the yogurt…I’ll have to try that trick sometime!!

    Great job listening to your body. I have to do more of that!

    Did you buy those dried edamames like that? Aside from the restaurant stuff, I’ve only had frozen + cooked edamames and the chocolate covered edamames, which now that I think about are dried. Hmm, where do you get them?

    elina,
    i bought the dried edamame in the ‘health food’ section of my grocery store. it’s seapoint farms brand. keep your eyes open for them though because it makes such a great snack! really tasty and super filling!

    ashley,
    I didn’t mix the yogurt and muffin but i will definitely have to try that some time, sounds good!
