Today was filled with torture....and sweet success! I fought and conquered a myriad of troubles today. I was faced with opposition and turmoil at every turn while in my patient's house. She has a junk food/sweet tooth, and every drawer, nook and cranny is crammed with devilish little morsels from Hell that tempt and tease me. Usually, I surrender without much of a fight on my part, but...today? Today...was different.
I did not cave once! I feel great! It was cake after the first couple of hours. This is what I had today:
- 7:15 AM vitamin shake
- 9:15 AM 1 cheese stick
- 11:15 AM 1 sliced cucumber with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, 1 sliced avocado and half a tuna salad sandwich on toasted whole grain bread
- 1:15 PM 6 almonds
- 3:15 PM 1/2 whiskey river bbq chicken spinach wrap with cantelope
- 6:30 PM 1 VERY small portion of chilli with 2 Lite Grahm crackers and milk
No crap food like I usually succumb to. Although, I did have a five minute stare down with my spinach wrap before I finally decided to put half of it in a To-Go box for Will. I didn't falter; that's the main point...not to say I wasn't tempted. I never used to be a glutton or a sweet tooth whore, but somewhere a long the way, food has begun to fill a void.
