What I ate: January 4th 2016

So today I feel a bit more emotional and somewhat more tried than usual. I didn't get much sleep last night. There is never a good time to say Goodbye to the ones you care about and  to those that care about you....even when its only temporary. So to be honest I feel somewhat sad today but I'm keeping positive when it comes to my weight loss journey and today I thankfully also seem to be on track, unlike yesterday. I used to be quite an emotional eater, which means feeling sadness like I am today or being upset over something would send me into a crazy sugar/junk food calorie overload binge. I have worked quite hard over the years at keeping myself from doing that. I think understanding yourself and your reactions to different stresses in life makes it easier to control and eventually concur and stop overeating because you finally understand why you do it instead of just mindlessly punishing yourself without much thought. That is why I have always said that one has to deal with what's inside before any changes take place on the outside. I wrote more in depth about that and my weight loss journey and personal struggles in my previous weight loss blog posts so you are welcome to check through those if interested.

I apologize in advance if some of the things I am having are somewhat repetitive but those are the things that I love to eat at the moment  that also keep me on track. Whenever I reduce my daily calorie intake I try to cram as much of food that I like but also the nutritionally healthy food in this small amount of calories. Some days I feel I'm better at it than others ....but it's all about learning as you go. I will be keeping it real everyday on here so if I eat same or similar things few days in a row and than go crazy creative with my food few days after that please don't mind. I kind of go through motions like that with my cooking/eating .....

Here is what I had today:

For breakfast I had a croissant with a pat of light butter and a teaspoon of black cherry raspberry blood orange low sugar jam. To drink I had my usual coffee with creamer and stevia sweetener and bottled water. Breakfast Cal Intake: 390

For my lunch/brunch I had a cup of Special K Vanilla Almond cereal with a cup of  unsweetened  coconut almond milk and 1/4  of a cup of blueberries with a coffee with creamer and stevia sweetener. Brunch/Lunch Cal Intake: 272

For my snack I had a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and filling. I had not finished drinking my coffee with my lunch/brunch earlier so I had my leftover coffee with the cupcake. Snack Cal Intake: 200

For dinner I had a  baked salmon burger  with a teaspoon of salmon dip and spinach with a side of cucumber and a diet drink. Dinner Cal Intake: 400

Today's total calorie intake: 1262

And that was it for today, I feel like I need to have an early night tonight  and give myself time to rest so that I can wake up refreshed and feeling better since I have an important day to tackle tomorrow.
Until tomorrow,
