Fat to Fit to Fierce

Veggie Mania

I promised myself and y’all that today would be a healthy food day.  Mission accomplished!

What Did Carli Eat Today?

Before I left home I had a cup of water and 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to get things moving in the right direction.  For Breakfast I had a protein shake, then mid morning I had a cup of Lemon Lift tea with Splenda.  I was hungry and went to lunch early at 11:30.  I walked and got a salad.  Breadstick? The chef asked.  No thanks, just fat-free Italian dressing.  I was proud of myself, 2 healthy meals and just taking it one bite at a time.  It was hard to order a salad when they’re known for their fried chicken wings, but I did.  This afternoon, I ate an apple.  Then…one of the vendors brought in Gus’ pretzel sticks.  I ate one, just one.  I could have eaten 4 of them, but I only ate one.  I was so proud of myself for not over indulging.  When I got off work my friend and I went walking in Park.  I ate a hand full of almonds to hold me over until dinner.   My friend is building up to 3 miles, so we walked at slower pace than I normally walk.  I’m so proud of her for making a commitment to walk.  We like to eat and shop together, so maybe now, we can work out together too.  At one point I jogged for a bit, and then jogged back to where she was.  That got my heart pumping.  Then she asked me for the 2nd time if I wanted the free Maggie Moo’s ice cream they were giving away for Tax Day.  I told her no again.  She said I want you to go with me…what if I bring you back some?  Haven’t we burned off the calories walking?  I said “friend I need you to help me, I can’t have that, my pants are too tight, and I need to stay focused.”  She understood and didn’t offer anymore.  We fought through the excessive amount of gnats near the pond, (I’m pretty sure I accidently swallowed one) and finished the 3 mile journey.  I had dinner planned in my mind before I even left for work this morning. My motto is “Failing to plan is planning to Fail.”  … I cooked chicken breast in water, and sautéed veggies. I opened the fridge and cut up every fresh veggie I saw.  I cut up zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, yellow pepper and spinach.  I sautéed it all in the same skillet with a little Olive oil and Weber Veggie Grill seasoning.  It was delicious!  I feel  good mentally and physically.
