Well, today was 98% successful. I worked with Steve today and he usually eats cookies with his dinner and always offers me a cookie. I always accept. Today, at the beginning of our shift, I told him I didn’t want a cookie. Then, halfway through the shift, he pulls out his dinner, which is usually just a tv dinner and it’s home cooked thin sliced brisket and mac’n’cheese. He tells me that he brought more brisket than he would be able to eat and did I want some. I said that brisket wasn’t a cookie and if I only had a little bit, then it would be okay. It was a small brisket to start off with, oval in shape, 3 inches by 2 inches, and he had sliced it VERY thinly…less than ¼ inch thick. I took 2 slices from him and they were good.
Anyway, I started off my day with my usual 2 multigrain waffles with 3 tbsp chocolate PB2 and a banana. Then I had my protein powder mixed in 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Around 4pm, I had my first snack at work, 1 cup ff cottage cheese with 1 single serve cup of mixed fruit in light syrup. Then, around 6 I had the above mentioned 2 slices of brisket and my serving of 0% plain Greek yogurt with the thawed frozen berries. At 8pm is where I got derailed. I went to eat my sliced bell peppers but they were gross. I had originally sliced them and put them in the Ziploc bag on Saturday. It is now Monday. They weren’t slimy, so I had thought they would be okay, but they were gross. So I threw them away and didn’t have anything to eat until I got home around 10:30pm. I ate my swordfish steak with some low sodium soy sauce. Usually that’s all I would eat for dinner, but I was hungry and low on veggies for the day thanks to the gross bell peppers, so I popped one of my bags of steamable mixed veggies into the microwave and ate those too.
So, I’d say that today was a good day for me. I took the day as it came and didn’t over think it. I’m satisfied with how today turned out.
