So today was my INR checked! Those who don’t know what an INR is, it’s just a simple blood test you have done by a prick of the finger and it tells you how fast your blood clots. Now they like your numbers to stay between 2-3. Today mine was a bit on the low side at 1.6 which just means my meds will need to be adjusted. I am not surprised though given I have been eating more greens and this can by all means affect your numbers as well as weight loss. Blood pressure was good 101/77 pulse was 60 🙂 I had not eaten yet when I left because I was going to try to get some of blood work done that my doctor requested that I have around now. BUT you have to fast with it, but by the time I got done with the INR testing it was noon and I needed to eat
So on my way home I was soooo craving this…. Sonic Double Cheese Burger w/Tator Tots as shown on your left! It is the ONLY double cheese burger I ever eat and usually I am totally stuffed after eating. I debated about this burger the whole ride home which took about 25 minutes! Imaging the warm tator tots and the cheesy cheese! It sounded so perfect. I was STARVING by this point. I just wanted food… Good food, QUICK food. But then I thought about money and how I shouldn’t spend any thing on just a burger. Those thoughts then left me with how I felt last night and how I said I don’t need big cheat days…. I mean I just had Mexican last night and I am sure that alone will make me suffer on the scale next week if I don’t work my tail off this afternoon! ugh…. See everything comes at a price! You just have to decide how much it is worth it to you! For me after much thought on my way home I had decided it wasn’t worth it to me. Did I want it? Yes, do I still, yeah, but not as bad as earlier.
So instead I came home and cooked myself something to eat. I made me some scrambled eggs with onions, mushrooms, spinach, turkey, some jalapeno weight watcher cheese, and a muffin with some cinnamon cream cheese on top and a water…. I went from a calorie count of 1420 calories had I gotten the burger and tots to 380 calories for my meal and I finished it off with some fruit I shared with my beautiful 9 month old daughter (some strawberries, black berries, and grapes). We both enjoyed that part the most! It was good, filling and hit the spot. No it wasn’t a big greasy cheese burger but I don’t really want that in the end anyways. I feel awesome, I have energy. I don’t feel run down and ready for a nap. Okay I could still take a nap but not from the food but from being in teething hell the past week or so… BUT that’s besides the point. It was a better choices. Will I always make the “right” choice. I don’t know, doubtful. But happy today I did. So that my friend I consider a victory! And that instead of just on my daily eats will go here! (Don’t forget to check my daily eat’s btw when checking my blog). I log in each day what I have eaten for the world to see.
