I was rocking the no snacking challenge last week. ROCKING IT! Every day got easier than the last. I was feeling good. I had momentum on my side.
Then Saturday came with 2 birthday parties.
The pizza. The cake. The ice cream. The chicken nuggets. The cupcakes.
Yes in that order and yes, cupcakeS.
I ended up Saturday night at midnight with a box of Triscuits by my side watching TV with the husband.
Sunday wasn’t as bad but the Doritos got me and I had a cupcake before bed for no real good reason at all. *sigh*
Yesterday was a grill fest of wings and more ice cream than I’d like to admit eating. Let’s just say one should never grab a gallon, a spoon and sit on the couch.
I’m not mad at myself and I don’t feel guilty. I’m just confused.
WHY do I eat like that when it makes me feel so icky?
Yes, icky. That’s about the only word I can use to describe the bloated, sluggish, slightly nauseous feeling I have when I over eat crap.
This morning I decided to push the momentum pendulum back in a direction I can feel good about. It all started with breakfast….
Don’t ask what the baby is doing. I have no idea. He just randomly decided to throw a touch down signal for no apparent reason at all. lol
Anyway, breakfast was a 2 egg omelet with bacon bits and spinach.
Then the husband asked to go out lunch.
Why does he do that? It’s like he KNOWS! But he doesn’t so I said yes.
I could do this! And I did! Hence my note to self mid-day and this salad.
This afternoon I made a quick snack on celery sticks which served 2 purposes…
1.) I was hungry and 2.) I’m working on a post for The Laughing Cow and am experimenting with a few ideas.
Dinner was HUGE. Just look at it..
That’s my last Salmon Burger from the freezer, leftover corn on the cob, roasted broccoli, a sweet potato, and a salad.
I ended my day with, yup, you guessed it Banana Soft Serve!
Consider my momentum changed.
I’m ready to tackle tomorrow.
