Dh working on a Saturday usually means lots of mindless eating for me. So I’m keeping a journal of what I eat today. And I’m starting it first thing in the morning.
8am. Breakfast was 3/4 cup of Joe’s O’s and non-fat milk.
11am. Kinda wish I hadn’t started this…I just sipped on this coffee for a long while, but I’m feeling slightly hungry and could pound a few cookies right now.
I’m headed to the back yard to rake the leaves and pick up dog poop for a little distraction. Such a glamorous life I lead!
12:30pm. I spent almost an hour raking all those leaves! After that I had lunch: a big spinach salad with pistachios and golden raisins and some left over home-made pizza (topped with spinach, onions, turkey sausage and lemon zest).
3pm. I’m hungry. No, bored. No, hungry…okay, I’m bored and hungry. Not good. I had another cup of coffee, a chocolate chip and chocolate cake cookie. Then an ounce of pistachios.
5pm. Dh is home and we are on our way to Rubios for dinner. I had two of their famous original fish tacos…so good! And a few of my dd’s chips.
I must say this was really hard to do today. It would have been very easy to mindlessly eat. But again, this exercise helped me to make better eating choices. I know it wasn’t great eating. But, it was much much much better than past Saturdays when Dh worked.
