Because I have a tendency to write long, and I am always looking to make this more readable, we’re trying out subheads today.
MY THOUGHTS ON THE DAY
You know, I look at the numbers of the day, and I am pretty happy. Less than 1,500 calories and 20 grams of fat is always good (At least in my book).
I suppose I grouped nearly half my calories into breakfast and lunch, which came within two hours of each other. And I suppose I should really cut back on the Subway, at least for the sake of my available funds.
But Subway is one of the things I allow myself to be talked into. Even during the 100 Days, Subway was a major food source. You could argue that it is where I get the most vegetables on this whole diet.
Actually, it might be the only place I get vegetables on this diet. I’ve sort of sworn off fresh vegetables because I never eat them before they go bad, and throwing out slimy carrots and celery is not appealing to me. Still, I should look into buying them again, but just not as much.
But after a somewhat poor day Monday, I am happy to buckle down again on Tuesday. There were no cravings, no problems eating what I did. In fact, if anything, I had to force myself to eat dinner at 11:30 p.m., a little later than normal.
So I suppose I should be happy with that. But still, the Subway habit needs to be reduced significantly.
THE DUMBEST DECISION I COULD EVER MAKE
There is a real yo-yo saga going on with me and my scale right now.
