takin' it easy, takin' it slooowwwwww

good morning. today i'm doing things a little differently.

1) i did not go to the gym this morning. why? a) bum pain - needs a rest to heal... feels better already and b) i think i needed a mental break from it as well. it's not like i have to go everyday... that would be ridiculous.

2) i decided to have lunch for dinner today and dinner for lunch. usually i eat somewhat light at lunch — yogurt, fruits, toast — because i like to eat a bigger dinner.

3) i stepped on the scale this morning and i never do that (except on friday)... what's up with me? i was feeling particularly thin and fit this morning... unfortunately the scale said i was up from last week. excuse me scale? where do you get off!? the nerve! so anyway, if i switch my meals around today maybe that will help.

here is today's menu:

about 10 strawberries
10-15 raspberries
4-5 blackberries
5-10 blueberries... obviously i am a berry fiend
vanilla hazelnut coffee

1 packet maple brown sugar instant oatmeal
1/2 cup all-bran
1 T ground flax
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup fat free vanilla pear yogurt

gardenburger on a high-fibre pita with
mixed greens
baby tomatoes
honey mustard
small sweet potato on the side

1 cup plain 2% yogurt
2 slices sprouted grains toast
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup pumpkin mixed in

that's about it. i am boring today. my big plans for tonight include cleaning the bathroom. JOY.

Hey, we have the same big plans tonight. We must both be sooooo cool. :)

I love that you actually count your berries. You have issues, girl.

I can't help but laugh everytime you complain about your bum pain! As I'm writing this, I hope you're complaining in relation to your muscles and not something more serious...

and your menu for today sounds great! Sometimes I like having my smaller meal for dinner as well because if I eat a larger meal at lunch it often takes me through the afternoon.

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the pressure of staying thin. I feel WAY more guilty about gaining a few pounds now than I did when I was 70 lbs heavier. I feel lik everyone is constantly checking me out to see if I've "kept it off".
But the pros far out weigh the cons! Being healthy and hot is worth the pressure and the judgement! :)

Lunch is usually my biggest meal of the day. I find I am way hungrier then than I am at dinner. I think that people at work wonder why I am not huge - they must think that I eat like that all day!

i like to switch up the meals every so often. it's a nice change. sometimes i do the breakfast for dinner routine and have some pancakes for din-din. Yummy.
