Well since I am randomly up an hour early I might as well fill you all in on yesterday! It was my first opening shift at my new job.
Which means I got up before 3:30am!! Since I wanted to start my metabolism I had an orange and some water. I’m not 100% sure I need this but we’ll just see how it goes.
Around 7am I got my first break and sipped down, happily, a doppio ristretto with one pump pumpkin spice, hot water, and a splash of half and half. Since I’m having so many extra drinks with this job, I’m really trying to keep the slurping calories low. One pump of PS is about 33 calories, and the breve is about 20-40 keeping this drink below 100 calories.
My actual breakfast was around 9am. Like I said, I’m gonna try some things I wouldn’t normally have. For example today I tried my first savory croissant: Butternut Squash and Sage. It was pretty tasty but not really my type of breakfast. I may still try the other two vegetarian flavors but I may not. For my drink I had the exact same thing as before only iced.
My 7.5 hour shift flew by and I love my job! It’s so busy doing things I enjoy!
I got home around 12:30pm and reheated some lunch from yesterday. I also sautéed some kale for more bulk and color.
I also slurped down this venti Valencia Orange Refresher. Definitely consuming way too much sugar with these. >.< Must opt for a better option like iced tea!
While working away on studying Disease Processes I eventually got hungry again and snacked on some Wheat Thins and cheese. I did really well on not going back for more…
…until after 5pm when I got home from my class and I was so hungry for dinner. >.< I’m really trying hard to figure out what exactly I should do about this obvious food issue. Do I go out and buy even more Wheat Thins, forcing me to have them around always and thus they lose their “eat me now!” hold over me? Or do I never buy them again? I think I need to do the former. =/ It’s how I kicked my crazy trail mix and peanut butter issues so I know it works, it’s just scary to do.
For dinner I finally finished off the ginger tofu and veggie stir-fry with forbidden rice. For dessert I ended up eating two squares of dark chocolate.
Wow, looking back over my eats I definitely have some changes I need to make.
- Less sugar
- More veggies in place of simple carbs!
Definitely gonna look out for more veggie-heavy snack options. Please post a comment if you have some good ideas!
