Day 2 (of 10)
It is after 11:30pm and the dogs are all snuggled in for the night and I am looking forward to being snuggled in for the night as well. The good news is that I did well eating today, which was…
1/2 cup greek yogurt, blueberries, raspberries and a bananna
two cups of coffee with a little raw sugar and milk (one cup at home and one cup at work)
“Open face salad” =one piece of Ezekiel wheat break, sliced tomato, zucchini, and 1/2 organic free range grilled chick breast with mustard and spring greens on top. 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and strawberries.
Subway- 6 inch veggies sub, no cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, spinach, pickles, banana peppers and avocado with light mayo and mustard. A bag of baked chips. bottle of water.
3 jolly rancher hard candies.
1 cup kashi cereal (dry)
I worked all day and while I brought my lunch, I forgot about watching the dress rehearsal of Porgy and Bess, so while I normally do not eat out “fast food” Subway was an option that allowed me to get dinner that was around 500 calories and was not fried nor did it have meat which I do NOT eat at every meal. When I got home I was a little hungry so just a little snack of Kashi cereal as I watched a new episode of “Rizzoli and Isles” that I had DVR’ed.
I was unsuccesful in getting a “workout in” but I did a fair amount of walking and tonight I was amazed when I took the stairs up to the balcony level of Music Hall with my good friend Amy, I was not out of breath and it was not even a struggle. I noticed I don’t even hold onto handrails anymore. Sounds crazy but going up stairs feels much different dare I say….easy. As I watched act one Of Porgy and Bess sitting next to Amy I realized three things.
1.) I was not on an aisle and world did not end.
2.) At one point I thought something felt weird…ah yes, my girth is not spilling over into the next chair so I actually had my arm on the armrest. Hun?! So that is what it feels like to have your arm resting there. I liked it.
3.) I sat there for a moment with my eyes closed imagining if someone was sitting on the other side of me, and as far as I can tell, I don’t think they would have touched me. In section 1, row 30 seat 2 my body fits in the space it’s supposed to fit into. That feels really good…really, really good.
More tomorrow, I am hitting the sack.
