WTF - Thursday Already???

I wish that I could say that I have been doing as well as Lucas.  Recap since my last entry:

10/31 - Trick or Treat with the kids.  GAH.  I sampled the loot, as they cast aside the things they won't eat.  (Both kids hate any kind of nut - so there is a wide variety of crap sent in my direction.)

I'm not a supporter of NEVER eating sweets or candy, but this was just mindless indulgences.  And I hate that I succumbed to the lure of eating it, just because I could.  

1/1 - A busy Saturday running the kids around the their activities.  Drank lots of water, and smart snacks on hand.  If anything, was low on the caloric intake for the day.

1/2 - Another busy day with family stuff.  Wasn't hungry most of the day, or at least to busy to bother eating, which cost me at dinner.  Went to the in-laws for dinner and was starving by the time we ate.  Overdid it for sure and felt gross afterwards.  

1/3 - Monday!  Still pushing the water intake, went out to lunch and order a smart soup and salad, and then made a delicious and healthy dinner.  

(Lucas - if you want the recipe, I will send it to you.  It's called Egg Roll in a bowl, super tasty and even the kids loved it!)

1/4&1/5 - The kids were home for the past two days for teachers in service day.  I let it throw me all out of whack.  Didn't get the water in, and ate sugary crap that I bought on impulse at Trader Joe's while we were there.  Grrrrr.

TODAY - So far so good.  Hot water with lemon.  (Amazing how it starts out tasting like butt, but over time I'm hating it less.)  Mint tea.  Fresh fruit.  

I never ceases to amaze me how much better I feel, inside and out when I feed my body as I should.  Why I still veer off course like I do...that is still part of the equation to figure out.


  1. YES to the recipe! And I went on my own candy binge last night at a Birthday Party I threw, but I DIDN'T drink! 21 days and counting. :)

    1. You are a rockstar!! I will email the recipe to you as soon as I can locate in this crazy kitchen of mine. :)
