food diary: 05/06/15

Although I went over my calorie allotment yesterday, I'll call it a good day:  I ate only half a bagel for breakfast. 

Bagels are my kryptonite. They were a huge problem for me pre-op and are still very hard for me to ignore.  It was easy for the first 10 months post-op, but then I tried a bite one day (at my old job that I hated; bagel=comfort) and that got me wanting bagels again.  I don't usually buy them, although once in a great while I will buy one and treat myself.  I know, I'm not supposed to eat this stuff as a gastric bypass patient, but I figure once in a great while is OK.  I'm not militant about life post-op.  Some people are and that works for them, but it doesn't work for me.  It just sets me up for failure and then the ensuing guilt; it turns in to a nasty, negative cycle.  So, yes, I give in once in awhile.

Another reason I'll call it a good day is that while I ate fast food for dinner, I didn't go overboard.  We visited a sick relative in the hospital last night.  Between having to drive there after work, visit, and drive back in a ton of traffic, we didn't get home until after 10 pm. So, Wendy's was the fast, convenient choice last night.  I got some chicken nuggets and had a few fries.  Blech.  Their chicken nuggets aren't great, which I guess explains why they're only $1.69.  And their fries aren't as good as they used to be.  But it filled the void.

I also got some exercise.  I've started walking around the outside of my building at work.  It's a half mile around so I go around twice.  It's only 20 minutes out of my day, I walk a mile, and I get to enjoy the weather - and I get a break from work!
