Good morning, Bloggers!

It's 6:45am and I'm at work! Now all of those of you who think you are jealous of me for working in a spa can see the dark side to my sweet gig - I'm up for work at 5 at least one day a week. Which in my case is the morning after I saw Harry Potter till midnight and then had a visit from a gentleman caller (nothing too shocking ladies, if it were I wouldn't be blogging about it.) I am TIRED.

So this morning the scale had me coming in at 220.8. It won't be long now, and I am just so excited. I can't believe how easy it feels some days, when it is SO HARD (see entry, "So Hard" from like a month ago) on other days. This fill has made a huge difference for me, and personally speaking, I am so excited I went in for this one, and that my clinic fills so slowly and gradually. It's not that I don't have head hunger or interest in eating, like on my day off on Tuesday I definitely was doing a bit too much grazing, but when I'm working I just have no issue with the fact that I can't. A typical workday will look like this, eating wise:

10:30am - breakfast - often an egg and a piece of toast if I can handle it, or a bowl of cereal with yogurt.

2:30pm (on the days when I'm alone at the desk after 3.) or 4:30pm - break/lunch - I am typically either ordering a salad with grilled chicken from room service or eating a lean cuisine.

6:00pm - snack - I especially need this if I'm only getting my break at 2:30. I am not allowed to eat at the desk so I sneak tiny bites of a Luna or Zone bar. At least it keeps me eating slow!

8:30pm - dinner - Generally grilled meat or fish, grilled or steamed veggies and quinoa. I've learned I pretty much have to follow the protein/veg/carb rule - no pasta is working for me at dinner time, I just get stuck. I have to be really careful to eat slowly at this meal because I'm often pretty starving, the food is often already ready when I come home, and I can start scarfing and I get stuck.

That's a full day of eating. Sometimes it doesn't happen that way and it doesn't bother me... I ate a couple of bites of Caprese Salad before I left for work, a half a burger I got completely stuck on on my break going to our employee picnic, and a few bites of popcorn and milk duds. Obviously I know eating that way is not super healthy - thank G-d for my multivitamin, eh? But what I like about it is not really caring about food, not having it be a focus or a priority. It's a great mind shift for me.

OK that only took me twenty minutes. Only 7 and a half more hours to go (till nap time)!
