Much better day

I really think it's all about breakfast. I noticed that yesterday, when I ate too little at breakfast I couldn't ever really eat the right amount again for the rest of the day. Today, I brought a Greek yogurt to work, which I couldn't look at, as I've had so many of them, so I went down to the cafeteria and asked for 1 egg on 1 piece of all natural bread toast (yes they have such a thing at a government cafeteria). I didn't get into the butter with the woman making it and sure enough she put butter on the toast. Not a ton. I happily ate the slightly buttery concoction. It was beyond delicious, and best of all I wasn't hungry at all until lunchtime.

Lunch, snack and dinner were all the right size, I believe, although I was a bit confused about how much tilapia to eat. I guess not too much according to this article.

I've noticed that when I have a day like yesterday, where I feel like a total failure, hungry, not managing things well, slightly loony, then I tend to have a much more balanced day the next day. This is good as if I had many of those crazed days in a row I'd turn into a cranky monster. And today I even got two compliments from my husband - one a post on this blog and the other after dinner, "You look really different." Ummm...thanks?
