Today I got my morning appetite back and was ready for my Ezekiel toast first thing!
After the gym, I got all the fixins together for my delicious protein shake! Still not sick of this mix…
Lunch was a portion of the black and red bean soup I made last week. I still have two more portions left! And for dinner, I went out with my girlfriend from work since she had an out-of-town guest visiting. We hit up an Asian restaurant, and I went with a couple of tasty sushi rolls–one avocado and one mushroom veggie. Good stuff!
After dinner we went for dessert, and although it was TOUGH, I resisted frozen yogurt! My kryptonite! I can’t believe I sat there while my friends ate fro-yo. But, I knew I had this at home waiting for me.
Overnight oats for dessert again! Now, I know that this treat by no means looks as tasty as cake batter frozen yogurt topped with brownie bites, but I can honestly say that it is something I look forward to eating in the evenings. I have this psychological mind game I have to play with myself. For some reason, I get a little sad/down when I realize “this is it” for the day when I finish dinner. So, when I have that mentality I tend to overeat at dinner. I guess I just don’t want the eating to end! Knowing that I have something exciting waiting for me at home, though, keeps me in check with my dinner choices (and even with avoiding fro-yo tonight!). It might seem strange, but I find it works for me.
