Finally, a day of self control...and without calorie counting!

I had a bowl with 1/2 cup dry oatmeal and a light fatfree caramel flavored yogurt around 7:30 this morning. I refrigerated it overnight--it tastes so good when the oatmeal has the chance to absorb the yogurt and it's cold when you eat it!
I checked my basic websites and email and then began getting ready for work. Around 8:30, I had a peach. YUM!
I went to work and eventually had this yummy mid-morning snack...a 100 calorie pack of beef jerky. Someone gave a few packs to me--I'm not sure where all you can buy these from.

I forgot to take a picture of lunch, but I found a picture on google of what I had...a toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich...my absolute favorite comfort food that's actually good for me. (trust me, there are plenty of 'comfort foods' i like that aren't good for me though lol)

I had a crystal light to hold me over until dinner and then threw some random things together on a plate basically.
Slices of swiss cheese & cheddar cheese, saltines, chicken with habanero hot sauce, and a little over a tablespoon of Maine lobster dip.
I feel good...so good that it motivates me to do well again tomorrow so I can feel good again. Gotta keep up that motivation!
Also, I have a goal of not weighing myself until the 15th. Hopefully I'll have the self control to stay off of the scale this time!

failed attempt, but at least it was an attempt.

Breakfast: a banana, yogurt, and orange juice.
Lunch: baby carrots and a turkey sandwich with a bit of light miracle whip, a mushroom, and lettuce.
I forgot to bring a snack to work (I worked 10 to 5) and ended up having quite a few of these little suckers that someone brought in for the workers...Before this, I hadn't had a doughnut or even a bite of a doughnut in well over a year! It was solely because I was hungry and am pretty much a sugar addict. What's done is done though. I had crystal light and a dab of nutella after the doughnuts. yikes.

Dinner was rotisserie chicken with cayenne pepper hot sauce, steamed broccoli with lemon juice, and mashed potatoes.

..which wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't gone back for a few more bites of mashed potatoes and several more bites of chicken. and a bit of cheese.
Summing it up, today was not a good day, but it was not a binge day. It was simply a step between the two.
