Sorry I was missing in action yesterday. I spent the very little time I had posting Mommy and Me Omelets on GreenLiteBites. Maybe this 2 blog thing wasn’t such a good idea. I love working on both of them equally and now I’m torn at night. Tonight was even worse because I HAD to write about my Fast Food Fiasco.
Anyway, I still journaled yesterday so I wanted to post both menus (with a little self-observation of course.)
Yesterday was my typical 12 hour day at work (these are coming to an end soon, YAY). I packed a bunch of stuff, planned, came home and made a light snack. I dipped into flex because I was hungry, and I don’t believe in going hungry.

The complete opposite of yesterday, I had a meeting off campus, didn’t pack a lunch and ate every meal on the run, except breakfast. I did find out the toddlers “fwavortie” cereal is strawberry frosted mini wheat’s. I know this because he told me at breakfast. I LOVE 2 year olds! ;~D

So there you have it, the last two days. Even tough I ate the same number of points, I felt much better yesterday eating all of my own food. Plus I had more variety, ate more often and was overall more satisfied.
In other news, I will be working on the community this weekend and possibly a food journal generator tool. I’m really excited about it! But for now it’s off to bed for me!
