Here I was, thinking I am the shit; thinking I am eating so great because I am eating Healthy Choice, Lean Cuisine, and Smart Ones meals for lunch. My goal was not over 260 calories (it was 250 until I saw the lobster ravioli was 260 so I made an adjustment)for lunch. I still think that was realistic. Until, that is, Chris told me to get the salad stuff I always say I am going to get and never go get. This time I did. I added up my salad today WITH DRESSING and it was a whopping 129 calories. What was I thinking ignoring this fabulousness earlier. Salad, oh how I love thee for you allow me an extra snack later in the day. A bite of sweets, perhaps. Oh yes, I've got your ticket healthy lunch people, and i have ripped it up to throw in your face. Salad has beaten you down with a cucumber!
So, I had a salad for lunch today.
Oh! And i rode my bike 5.02 miles, just as I promised. 360 calories Plus what i saved on lunch is another meal's worth of calories.
I LOVE this now. I love the challenge of the weight loss but, even more, the challenge of working it all out. I really make a game of it. It is a logic problem I must solve each day.
I am winning.
