Back on the Wagon

Howdy there! How are you doing today? I’m back on the healthy eating bandwagon today … yesterday was filled with indulgence, and my tummy was literally stuffed to the gills with greasy meat, fried foods, and sugary goodies. I thought briefly about throwing in the towel and *not* documenting my eats yesterday, but I pushed past my trepidation and posted on the new motorcycle and my food anyway, and I’m glad I did! It’s okay to indulge on occasion, after all. πŸ™‚ Today I was bloated though, and I didn’t sleep very well last night because my stomach was just so stinkin’ full of junk! Healthy eating challenge accepted today.

So without further adieu, onto the eats of the day!

I had a slice of Dave’s Killer Bread with 1/2 of a baby avocado, an egg, and salsa for breakfast. 1 cup of coffee with salted caramel chocolate creamer to drink … I switched to vanilla chai tea after savoring my one creamy cuppa, and that seemed to do the trick.

Celery and Laughing Cow Cheese as a snack! Crunch, crunch, crunch.

I had some major anxiety this morning as my Dad wanted me to come see a new crock pot that he bought (really just an excuse to see us), and seeing him is a big source of terror. He kind of tricked me into agreeing that I’d come see him today – I’m too much of a people pleaser –Β  and I did not want to go. He’s a source of terrible anxiety, PTSD, and is also a trigger for my eating disordered behaviors.

I try to remember that I’m *stronger* than he is – I beat alcoholism, after all, and he hasn’t been able to do that – and that he is no longer in control of my life and can do nothing else to hurt me, not if I don’t let him. All in all my anxiety was in vain as we had a nice visit around 1:30, and he talked primarily about cooking and the work he’s been doing at the ranch. We plan on visiting the ranch around the 4th of July, so that’s good.

Lunch was a big ol’ bowl of fruit! Strawberries, red grapes, and raspberries for the win! So yummy, fresh, and delightful. I just adore fruit.

Luke and I also ran some errands and went to the store this afternoon, and despite spending a fortune on kitty litter and cat food (Petsmart got some $$ from us today), we also got the ingredients to make enchiladas. I whipped up a batch when we got home for Luke’s dinners when he works!

Soon after I made enchiladas, it was 5 o’clock and my cocktail time! I had a Hibiscus Ginger Kombucha and some cucumber and bell pepper with salsa … the salsa kinda plopped onto the plate, so please ignore the messiness. I also ate a peach.

Luke went riding on his new bike with Joe, so I was on my own for dinner tonight. I had leftover rotisserie chicken and needed to eat it up, so I served it on spinach and some roasted broccoli and cauliflower, and I drizzled on some light Fiesta Ranch. This was a very beige dinner, but it was tasty and very filling!

Now I’m snuggled up in my bathrobe, am chilling with some mint green tea, and am watching Expedition Unknown, one of my favorite shows. I need to clean up the apartment, but the cats and I are being lazy. Oh well, I’ll clean up in an hour or two. πŸ˜‰ Today’s eats seemed to be healthy and light, so I’m happy about that … I need to keep cleansing my system from that junky day I had!

Have a pleasant evening, y’all!
