NROL - Week 3 - Wednesday

Again with the nightmares! I slept a little better than I did Sunday night, but man, this is ridiculous! I would say the melatonin is the culprit, but I've been taking if for quite some time now and I usually only get vivid dreams after a break from it. Maybe it's the anxiety of my four year old starting preschool next Wednesday.

Because of the dreams, I got up early. Well, the normal time I should be getting up - lately I've been sleeping in. As soon as my husband left for work, I did the Turbo Jam 20 Minute Workout. I also managed to get in 45 minutes (on and off) on the Wii Fit. The Rhythm Boxing is so much fun!! I did a few of the aerobic activities and actually worked up a sweat!

In other exciting developments, the Joyce Nash book I ordered, Binge No More: Your Guide to Overcoming Disordered Eating, arrived in the mail today. As with the Fairburn book, I could immediately identify with some of the stories in it. I'll be reading that the rest of the week and hopefully have the summaries up here early next week.

Oh, and before I forget - again - I've had the South Beach Tide Me Over water packets a couple times in the last few days, but I've been forgetting to add them to my tracker! I even wrote it down yesterday and still forgot!!!! So, just in the interest of honesty, I'm noting my omission here, but not bothering to go back and redo my numbers. I'm not that obsessive.

Before dinner, I felt a bit of panic. I got upset over something trivial and wanted to eat away my anger. There was ice cream in the house. There were Doritos in the house. I passed.

6:25 AM - apple & cottage cheese w/ cinnamon & Splenda; eaten on couch before workout; I actually ate slowly and enjoyed it

9:40 AM - turkey bacon, tomato, onion, mustard & horseradish sauce on whole wheat roll, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; eaten on couch; these things are just too darn small

1:30 PM - mozzarella string cheese; eaten in kitchen; I got so sidetracked with the Wii Fit and running to the store, then catching up on stuff online that I kept putting off lunch, so I had the cheese to hold me over while it cooked

2:05 PM - baked sweet potato & roasted chicken breast, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; eaten at desk; it was kind of bland and I'm a little frustrated about that

5:00 PM - yogurt; eaten at desk to hold me over until dinner

8:00 PM - "taco" salad (lettuce, ground beef, red beans, sour cream & salsa), iced tea; eaten at desk

That is so awesome that you let the urge to eat pass! I know that isn't an easy thing to do so kudos for you for doing it. :)

Your meals sound great, though I know what you mean about the sweet potato and chicken - I used to eat that a lot and now i can't stand sweet potatoes because I'm so sick of them. Maybe you can choose a different carb? Brown rice? Some kind of brown rice/chicken stir fry with veggies?

I love brown rice! It's one of those things I have a hard time controlling portions. But I definitely think it's time to make up another batch - maybe even make a brown rice salad.
