i am feeling much better today, thanks everybody. =D

but for the record, yesterday's post wasn't about sharing a problem or making some sort of giant confession. i just can link eating too much cookie dough to feeling upset about something. and the truth is, the cookie dough did help. it was pretty delicious. it's weird. when i feel upset in an outraged sort of way i can eat through the problem, but if i was upset about a personal problem and felt sad or guilty, my appetite would be non-existent.

but today is a new day. i went to the gym last night and did 4 miles on the treadmill. it was hard because i felt so exhausted in an emo way but i pushed through it. i had to walk a few times but got in 30 minutes total of running which is my goal. i also did some weights and 4 miles on the stationary bike. and today i brought 75% of the cookies to work for my coworkers to eat. evil? maybe.

i made another big salad (this tends to be a monday trend) which consisted of spinach, roasted cauliflower and onion, carrots, almonds, raisins, dried apricots, baby tomatoes, and two chicken wieners cut up. now that i list all the ingredients it sounds pretty gross but it was good. i also went grocery shopping and stocked up on lean cuisines - they are on sale for $1.99. a little bird was saying "cheap cheap" in my ear.

today's menu is:

quaker weight control oatmeal (2)
strawberries (0.5)

clementine (0.5)
yogurt (1)

2 slices ww toast (1)
campbell's chunky beef soup (5)

yogurt (1)
all bran mixed in (0.5)

maybe another spinach salad with a sol cuisine veggie burger chopped into it. (?)

The salad sounded great up untik you added the weiners. :) It's goo though that you are adventurous. I'm a play-it-by-the-book salad maker. Lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, carrot. It needs some Ummph.

Glad you are feeling better.

PS Cookie dough really does make me feel better sometimes too! So yummy!

weiners too funny. cheap cheap too cute!

Glad you are feeling better and were able to exercise through it all.

I know what you mean about eating really helping. It really does make me feel better when I'm stressed to the max. Sad but true.
