All Things In Moderation

…….. and moderation in all things .

It’s only Wednesday ?

Posted by Susan on September 30, 2009

Time drags when you looking forward to a week vacation ! I keep waking up hoping it is Friday ! Every time I wish time would fly by , I hear my Grandmother’s voice in my head saying “Don’t wish your life away Susie !” But I just can’t help it !

Today I was ravenous all day ! I didn’t go over crazy with food or anything , but boy did I want to ! Even the food being served to the residents was tempting ! (and that’s saying something because the food they serve is gross !) I waiting on TOM. That is always the way I feel when it is looming in the horizon. Tonight I am getting to bed as early as I can because the later I stay up the harder it will be to resist the snacking urge. When I feel like this I am hungry , but for nothing in particular , so I find myself grazing on anything and everything if I am not careful !

Here is the food for the day:


Before the Shred this morning I had a banana, I didn’t take a picture of it because I know everyone knows what that looks like ! Before I left for work I had some Chobani  yogurt, with granola.


At work for snack I had an apple and a Fiber Plus bar. I really like these. They taste like something bad, but only 130 calories, so they are not so bad.


At around 11:00 I was starving. I went to the vending machines in the break room at work to see if I could find something that was even the slightest bit healthy. I ended up choosing a Nature Valley Granola Bar. I figured it was better than a chocolate bar.


Lunch was a veggie salad topped with reduced fat cheese, sunflower seeds, and sesame sticks.



Dinner was planned this morning, left over rice pilaf from dinner on Sunday. By the time I got home I was in the mood for something else . I ended up having 3 cheese tortellini with a 4 0z. chicken breast and FF parm. cheese ! It was perfect. I was so hungry and it filled me up perfectly and the calorie count didn’t end up much more than it would have if I’d stuck with the leftover rice pilaf. I also has a veggie salad.


For dessert tonight I had a 1/2 c. of FF frozen yogurt, , 1 T. of chocolate chips, Lite chocolate syrup , and FF whipped cream ! Yum ! I really needed my sweet fix tonight !

Tomorrow  morning is my last session of The 30 Day Shred ! I am both happy and sad to see it go ! Happy , because it kicked my BUTT ! Sad because I had so much fun with this challenge ! I love the DVD, but I don’t think I would have loved it if I hadn’t done it with all of the gals who participated in the challenge.  Tomorrow will be bittersweet .

On a happier note , I am on board with the next challenge ! What better time to Shred our butts off than right before the Holidays ! I am planning on doing it again next May before we go on vacation in June …..get firmed up for my late honeymoon !

Well, I am off to bed to read for a while and hopefully fall asleep early so I am bright eyed and bushy tailed for my last Shred ! I am hoping that when I wake up tomorrow my intense hunger has subsided and I am back to my normal self !

    Considering your cravings it seems you had a pretty darn good day. So hard to fight that craving monster, but it always feels so good when you do.
