healthy and happy. one of these days.

07 January 2013


had an interesting day today. i got a call from my trainer who informed me that he won't be my trainer anymore - he's "breaking up" with my gym, soooooo it looks like i'll have to find a new one. maybe it'll be a new opportunity, but right now it's just unease of the unknown. but we'll see what happens when i get back from new york.

and by that i mean - i'll be in new york for the next week! my organization's annual conference is there, and the whole staff goes up. i'll be back on the 15th, and i'm not sure what kind of posting i'll be doing. i also don't know what kind of exercise i'll be doing. i'm  bringing my running shoes and some workout clothes, so i'm hoping i'll have some kind of motivation. 

anyhoodle, on to the food for today. 

breakfast, cottage cheese with grapes, cup of coffee with half and half.

lunch: trader joe's southwest salad with 4-5 oz chicken breast added

snack: fage yogurt with strawberry, cup of coffee with  half and half.

 dinner LOOKS gross, but it was REAL good. this was a palak paneer frozen meal from trader joe's, with a piece of naan. i actually ended up eating another half of a piece of naan because i wanted to clean out my pantry before i leave for new york. plus, carbs are delicious.

welp, i only have one picture to share with you. on a related note, it's also pretty much the only healthy thing i ate today. blech.

breakfast was two eggs, a gala apple, and a glass of skim milk.

from there, i went over to my parents house. which is currently the only place that i often go that still has the foods i generally stay away from.

so, lunch was a grilled cheese with ham (and FOUR slices of cheese. yep.) made with whole grain toast, at least. with tomato soup (1/2 can of progresso, so one serving). and like 4 handfuls of kettle cooked potato chips.

i also ate maybe a cup or two of goldfish.

then i ate two hotdogs, on potato bread rolls, with ketchup.

i had 4 or 5 diet sodas over the course of the 6-7 hours i was over there (two football games, basically)

after my lunch, my stomach was NOT having it. it was mutiny. i didn't get SICK sick, but, well, i'll just leave it at that. after pretty clean eating for five weeks, i can't say i blame it.

but not to worry, back to business tomorrow. as of saturday, the scale was still going down, and i'd like to keep it going in that direction!

(and eat healthier, and be stronger, and run longer, and improve my body image, etc etc etc! it's not all about the scale, my friends!)
