Week 7 Day 45

Its Hump Day!  

I started out my day good, but didn't pack a lunch (not a good sign).  I ended up eating out at my favorite Thai restaurant with hubby and a friend which probably isn't going to show good results on the scale.  Oops!

I ordered Tom Yum Soup with chicken.  For those of you who don't know this soup, it is made with a base of Coconut milk.  I also ordered an appetizer which is ground up chicken with cashews, a little red onion, cilantro, with a clear sour dressing, served with lettuce leaves to make your own rollup.  I cut up the lettuce and mixed it altogether to eat as a salad.  It was all very yummy, but after only a few bites of each, I KNEW, just KNEW there was added sugar.  Uh oh!  Instead of panicking and saying "screw it" and ordering some dessert too, I just thought in my mind that I will have to eat mostly protein for dinner and drink LOTS of water.  

Fast forward an hour or two, and I can definitely tell there was sugar in the food.  I have noticed that I get this weird feeling with my eyes (almost like I am about to start seeing slightly blurry) when I eat sugar.  I also get this spacey feeling.  Additionally, I find myself wanting more food (as if I didn't already get too stuffed from lunch), and even looking at the donuts and brownies in my office with desire.  Yes, I said desire.  Again though, I did not think about actually doing it.  

So fast forward to the final meal of the day..... I came home to cooked steak with cauliflower and homemade blue cheese/onion cheese sauce for the steak. I should have taken a picture, because you definitely couldn't see my steak ;)  That stuff is so good.  It is a recipe by the Pioneer Woman if you are interested.  The onion is high in carbs, so I have now messed up (slightly) 2 out of 3 meals today.  Grrr!

But again, I am writing this 8 o'clock at night, and still feel that I had a successful day.    I did not truly want to crave into anything bad, and even mentally made a plan to deal with my little setback.  I am also prepared to see a gain on the scale in the morning, and thats okay.  I still have plenty of days to turn things around!  

I also wanted to add that I had quite a few people comment on my weightloss today.  I should have taken a picture.  Maybe I will start doing that in the future.  My YouTube videos definitely don't look like me.  The lighting makes my face look so much different than pictures do.
