I always hate the first day back after a three day weekend..everyone is trying to make up for that extra day off..It wasn't a horrible day..just really really busy and hectic. I didn't leave the office for lunch so I didn't see much sunshine..I did walk alittle between buildings to deliver paperwork..

 Hey Dawn - I have been out of commission.  Cold/flu, feeling very yucky.  Here's my food today:

B:  2 slices protein bread, 1.5 eggs, 1/4 cup 1% milk, 1 tbsp butter, sugar free almond roca syrup and 1 packet stevia
Starbucks iced venti suger free vanilla 2% latte
L:  Quesadilla al pastor, 5 prunes
32 oz diet peach snapple
S:  2.25 oz pumpkin seeds, 5 prunes
D:  4 oz boneless/skinless chicken thighs, 2 tbsp jalapeno ranch, 2 tbsp salsa, 1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese, spinach, grated carrots/red cabbage, red bell pepper, peppercinis

So remember how I talked about the woman who came to my job to talk about eating disorders/food addictions?  I got to spend a little time with her after the inservice and talk.  Part of what she talked about was how a food addict (me) obsesses about food/body/calories/etc.  One of the things she does is runs a program fod eating disorders.  Anyway, we talked about how I weigh myself daily, keep track of my daily intake and my calories.  It got me thinking about it all.  I do think I am going to stop weighing myself daily and move to only doing it once a week.  I am considering not planning out meals the way I have.  I have found myself really thinking a lot about what I was going to eat and basically biding my time until I get to eat next.  I really would like to hear what you think about my not planning out my meals, tracking my calories from the perspective of a weight loss patient.  I think I need to take this into consideration also.  I am thinking what I would do is to write down what I have eaten so if my weight started going up I could look at my food journal and see whats what.  Anyway, I am interested in what you think.  Thanks.
