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.
