Today's Meal

So I'm still in the saddle. And now I am holding myself accountable to WRITE DOWN everything I eat/ate in a day.

Yesterday's breakfast - 1 cup of coffee and Coach's oats (from Costco, microwaveable, but note to YOU and ME: use a big bowl, even if it's only 1/3 cup oats to 1 cup of water. It always overflows in the microwave. I never learn my lesson on this one)
Yesterday's lunch - 1 giant bowl of miso soup (w/ tofu and egg though I don't normally do eggs, I am not opposed to them, especially in miso soup), 1 small piece of last night's vegan enchilada (not worth blogging about which is why there is so much leftover...I think I'll be eating it tonight and tomorrow, too!), some baked sweet potato (definitely something to blog about, maybe tomorrow), and some dried pineapple (just plain old pineapple sliced thin and dehydrated from our Hilo Farmer's Market--it seriously tastes like fruit rollup ala no preservatives)
Yesterday's FAIL - I don't know what came over me. I think it's hormonal. Someone brought in a most delicious bag of chocolate chip mac nut cookies and I ate 3. Yup. 3. That's my confession.
Yesterday's YAY - My carpool driver stopped at Starbucks on the way home. I opted for NOTHING. I had a previously frozen green chai smoothie. That sufficed. I felt good. By the way, it freezes really well. Tasted as fresh as the day I made it. Froze it in a canning jar.
Yesterday's dinner - Veggie wrap (using 100% whole wheat tortilla wraps from Costco) which included romaine lettuce, roasted bell pepper, roasted eggplant, sliced cucumber, salsa. I ate 2. And they were so fat I had to vice grip it with my hand and NEVER let go until the last bite. I ate two wraps. And I think I said that I could eat that every single evening this entire week. It was THAT good.
Yesterday's Snacks - Some grapes, pear, clementines

Yesterday's Lessons
  1. I am suffering from cravings and I just have to get over it. With the help of my family I think I can do it. I asked my daughter to grab me a piece of dark chocolate and she absolutely refused and might have said something about having to hurt me if I went to get it on my own.
  2. I think I'm hungry but I'm really not. I just need to get over it. Healthy Girl's Kitchen has a great post that is helping me on this.
