Day 2

Day 2

Day two went well too, for the most part. I had a good breakfast and lunch, but you remember those cookies? They were nothing compared to the "last day of school" party in the HS library, replete with A HUGE sheet cake with piles of sugary frosting and several buckets of ice cream. I did really well with it. I had one piece of cake and a small scoop of ice cream and then went and hid in my ISS room. (amid heckling for being the most reclusive staff member. But one of the teachers I really respect said that I was smart for knowing my limits) Later one of the teachers offered me a 9 x 13 section of left over cake to bring home, but I said no thanks. I heard from another teacher that she had had 3 pieces of cake because they were trying to get rid of it. I felt pretty good that I hadn't stuck around... plus she looked like she felt pretty sick!

For Dinner I had Nalley's vegetarian chili- it's very good. The first time I served it Jason had no idea it used TVP (textured vegetable protein) instead of meat. When he found out, he was like, "oh, ok." :) It's less calories than regular canned chili and it takes great... added bonus is that it takes a total of 5 minutes to prepare. I like to serve it over a piece of torn up bread and sprinkled with cheese and a few fritos corn chips. It's a whole meal in 5 minutes. It can still be high in points (weight watchers) if you don't watch your portion size. I used a smaller bowl ( a blue one because I've heard that blue helps suppress appetite... I know I'm nuts)

And for my final proud moment of the day.... I went to a really fun Mary Kay Party that a lady from my ward put on and she did this really cool candy bar game where each candy bar represents another aspect of Mary Kay and if after she explained them we could remember what they represented we could have the candy. I remembered all of them and there was a lot of tempting candy, but I opted for the pack of gum instead of a chocolate bar... I got some other candy, but I'm going to save it or give it to Jason.

I'm happy that I'm making more conscious decisions about my diet. It does take alot more mental effort. Even though I'm not writing down and tracking points, I am very aware of what I eat and so I think it's helpful! :)

Ok, I'll stop now, I've got a bunch to do today! :)



good job Kelly! :)

It's true that blue helps supress. I was told: put a blue light in the fridge, and you'll leave it alone. That's all fine and dandy, except that the apples are in the fridge, and the candy is in the cupboard.

I'm loving your blog!!
