There is also Christmas in which my mom doesn't want to cook so she wants to order deep dish pizza. I don't think she listens when I say I don't want to eat that, but whatever. In addition to Christmas and my sister's birthday there is the inevitable pizza at work for the people working during the holiday weeks and my good friend's wedding and bachelor party.
Overall, I've been doing okay with the food. For the buffet, I ended up making myself a big plate of salad with no dressing and cottage cheese/sunflower seeds for a little bit of fat and taste. Of course I added olives and other veggies, but this was from a crappy casino buffet so I wasn't thrilled about the quality. Besides the salad, I did have a lot of crab, but that was to be expected for me. I don't use butter and eat the crab plain aside from a bit of Thai seafood sauce.
The bachelor party was not so good for me, but it's my friend's party and I did the best I could. I did have some snacks like chips, but I did partake in the veggie tray moreso. The worse was the two pizza slices and ice cream. I was supposed to workout at this crossfit gym, but considering I was out late for my friend I can't be too mad at myself. I'll just be sure to do something later and not just watch football.
For Christmas and New Years, I will just try and make it a point not to partake in anything bad or if necessary severely limit what I eat of the bad stuff (because it still tastes oh so good.) Maybe I will cook some chicken and/or turkey with veggies and bring it over. I think it'd be really good to have that as opposed to my mom's idea of pizza and fried squid.
I think what will help a great deal is a food journal. Here's what I've had today so far:
2 cups of cherries - 174 calories
2 clementines - 70 calories
1/2 apple - 47 calories
1 cup grapes - 104 calories
395 calories and I feel full right now. I'll try to go for something more substantial later, but I am content with the fruit right now.
It's early for this blog and I know I only have one follower right now and possibly will only have one, but what is your favorite good for you snack?
