After that, I ate my lunch, which consisted of a big salad, another serving of almonds, and a bowl of pulled pork that my wife had made.
Then I had my second snack of the day. It was the same as the first. Usually, I try to have a protein with my snack, maybe a cheese stick or a slice of ham or something, but I forgot to pack that in my lunch today.
That was pretty much it for me. But, just to prove to you how honest I'm being. I also ate a bite of a cookie that I bought for my daughter as a treat for doing a good job at her choir concert. Here it is:
That is a sugar cookie with a crapload of icing on top. More icing than I would normally go for, but my daughter's still young and doesn't know any better, and picks whatever has the most icing on it usually. I only ate one small bite of it. I wasn't tempted to have more, because I knew I would have to tell you, and also I my daughter wasn't in the mood to share today either.
So, that's all that I ate today. I admit, as I type this before going to bed, that I am a little hungry, but not bad. The amazing thing was how well it worked to keep me from eating garbage I don't need to be eating. While I was at work, I considered grabbing a candy from the jar on my manager's desk, but I changed my mind, because I knew I'd have to photograph it and present it to you all. After work, as I drove out, the urge to stop at the gas station and grab a candy bar hit me (as it has been hitting me every day for the last while), but I didn't even consider it, because I didn't want to shame myself in front of you all.
I'm excited about the possibilities. It seems like it might be a lot of work, but so is food journaling on the MyFitnessPal app or anything else like that. This is just a more public, and therefore more accountable way of journaling.
We'll see how it goes.
