Yesterday was a productive day. I followed my food plan, worked out twice and had an all around great day.
I went to the Rangers game last night with my besties. We had the sweetest seats on the first row at third base, right next to the visitors dugout. As you can see, I stand out from my friends. One of the Pirates went to my high school (albeit a "few" years later). I couldn't get myself to wear Pirates gear, but I supported him this way. The sad thing was that he didn't even play this game (he is usually a starter), so I didn't get to interact with him at all. Oh well.
When I went to the game, I budgeted 2 regular hot dogs and that's it. I could have zero calorie drinks, but no beer, no popcorn, no french fries, etc. Hot dogs are not all that bad for you and quite filling, so I went for that. I ate my two hot dogs (one before the game and one around the third or fourth inning) and that was IT. They had free samples of beer and I passed it over. There were all sorts of different food options and I ignored them. I was so hungry on my way home from the game, but I managed to go straight home and go to bed. No late snacks and no wasted calories. I say it was a little victory, but it was actually a pretty big one.
I'm going to start documenting my calories in and out each day...just for a little while. I need to see on paper how much the little things affect the big picture. I am working on one month of good behavior...now through 10/10. That is my focus.
