7:55am Breakfast. I always seem to run late/sleep in on Mondays, despite having a class one hour earlier, but on days when my class is an hour later I never sleep in! Grr!
So I wanted to try out CCK’s new Pumpkin Cheesecake dip/spread recipe (link here), though it was a very simplified and adapted version. Thank goodness it came out tasting good! It started my morning very nicely since it was so good. :) Shot my mood right up, after crying myself to sleep last night. Oh man, trust me, if breakfast was bad, I would have probably gone crazy this morning.
Since I didn’t want to mess with the recipe too much and risk my day starting off badly, I didn’t add any flaxseed to my oatmeal muffin, which I had wanted to. So I decided to make a pumpkin milk/pudding thing so I could add it in.
12pm came home for a short lunch.. I don’t know why I dawdle so much, lol. I ended up rushing my meal because I wasted time wondering what to eat and being slow. Had a cup of cranberries while I was wondering. (60) And then I finally decided to finish my cottage cheese, and add a little bit of everything. At the last minute I grabbed a small tortilla, for no reason at all lol.
As I was eating this, I had less than 10 minutes before I had to leave the house! Buut I managed to finish and even contemplate another tortilla, again for no good reason, but I didn’t :)

Total: 900 calories
So I guess I ended up eating less, calorie wise, today. Mostly because I was rushed in the morning and at lunch. But dinner felt pretty big so I felt fine. I even managed to do a homework question on my assignment afterwards! I should probably start eating more though, because I’m going home from Wednesday-Thursday, and if my body thinks it’s starving, going home could be a d i s a s t e r.
I guess I shouldn’t put off grocery shopping tomorrow then. I was going to have my mom help me with that when I came back on Thursday. I mean, maybe she still can, but I should probably buy some dark chocolate and fruit or something, so I don’t go crazy at home. There’s always always a bunch of fruit and snack-type things at home.. so if I deprive myself now, it’s going to get worse later. We’ll see!
Onto my weigh-in… Over the last 5 weeks, I have lost 4 lbs. But this will be the second time that I’ve hit 120 since starting the challenge. The first time was two weeks ago, and last week I had gained 3 lbs from overeating and binge eating. It seems like I lost those 3 lbs again. But the fluctuations can be crazy so I don’t want to be too optimistic. It’s been about 6 months since I’ve been under 120. I swear I keep losing and gaining the same 15 lbs! =( Mostly because I end up going home when I’ve reached goal weight, and my binges get so crazy and I just slip back into my old habits. Home is just a big ol’ trigger unfortunately, which is why I avoid going home as much as I can.
Just took my measurements–should have taken them this morning but I forgot–and my measurements are consistent to what they were two weeks ago, when I hit the same weight. I guess there’s a correlation. I haven’t really been losing too much, though. The numbers seem to fluctuate within 1-2 inches when I compare them, so it’s still too soon to say. All of this could even just be water weight loss, since I haven’t eaten as much lately. I don’t want to be too optimistic until my weight has stabilized for at least 3-4 weeks.
