The drive yesterday went super well, no major traffic, no major fights. We ate at McDonalds on the way, and I had such an I love the band moment. Three chicken nuggets and about five fries and I was stuffed. It was so easy - there was no emotional drama, no nothing, just this is at the rest stop, this is what I'll eat.
We got to Stowe around 5:30, which also included a quick stop at a dairy-shop on the way where I had a fro-yo. For dinner we had yummy bbq chicken, bean salad, roasted sweet potatoes and salad. I was able to just have a few bites of everything... Which was great. I really think this restriction might be enough to really help me get to the next weight-loss level.
The other thing that's gonna help a ton is working. I start tomorrow, and for the next week at least, my schedule is 12-8 everyday (except Tuesday off.) I knew I'd be closing going in, and I really don't mind. I get to sleep in a bit, and then I can eat a meal before I go in at around 11, eat another meal when I have a break around 4, and then come home and eat dinner around 8:30. I won't be able to snack unnecessarily... Because there is just no way to do it. We can't have food at the spa desk at all, so I really think the no grazing - no handful of this here and a couple of those there is gonna help me out a ton.
My one concern is that I won't be able to get a big enough meal in before I start working as I find I'm pretty tight in the morning. Worst comes to worst and I'll start making myself shakes to take in.
