snack: decaff cafe americano (a shot of expresso and water), and soy milk.
lunch: corn on the cob with avocado spread, boiled potatoes and sweet peas with chives and basil (boiled in a small amount of water so nothing was left and hopefully vitamins remained with the veggies), fruit salad consisting of banana, strawberries, and fresh cut pineapple. yummy
dinner: leftover black bean salad, watermelon (yum!), and pluot, and an orange. I was in the mood for fruit after realizing yesterday that the summer fruit and vegetables are going to be gone soon!
I worked with a colleague at a coffee shop this morning and started off with an herbal tea, and then couldn't resist the coffee. It was very good, but I felt the caffeine even though it was decaff. I prefer how I feel without it. Geez, I am so boring now, not liking caffeine and alcohol. I'm worried about my upcoming trip to Heidelberg where I will be hanging out with friends who have enjoyed drinking beer with me for many years. I will probably drink and then I will feel yucky in the morning. What should I do?
An interesting thing happened with my eating habits. I changed my schedule around because I have so much work to do and I'm more productive in the morning. So I moved my exercise routine to the afternoon. That seems to regulate my eating very well. I'm not snacking. I can't eat too much at lunch because I don't want to be full while exercising. I hope I keep it up. However, I might lose too much weight without the snacking. If that happens, I'll figure out something. I certainly won't mind eating more! I'll just have to figure out when.
