I’m going to share my food journal but first I have something I want to try to explain. I’m just not sure if it’s going to come out right.
Today rocked. Plain and simple. I spent time with the kids, got work done, had lunch with the husband, made a great dinner and hit the gym.My house is even slightly clean! Not once did I think about my body or the scale. I wasn’t preoccupied with food. I didn’t look at myself in the mirror with a tinge of doubt. I simple went through my day confidently, productively, happily.
Then it hit me.
Getting all that out of my head is a huge part of "the solution." It’s why THIS, as in the blog, works for me. Nothing good happens when you’re stuck in your own head with negative thoughts, fat talk or an inner mean girl. At least for me, that’s when I start to feel out of control and turn to food as a form of therapy.
Like I said, not sure if this is coming out right. All I know is a weight was lifted from my shoulders today and I can’t help but think it’s because I faced the feelings I was having instead of stuffing them down even deeper with food.
Anyway, just an observation. On to today in food!
Breakfast was this amazing omelet…
Lunch was sushi with The Husband. Yep you heard that right. I’ve converted him!
You have NO idea what a stretch this is and how happy it makes me! Let’s just say he could easily sustain himself happily on mac & cheese, burgers, and potato chips. Like I said, this is HUGE!
Dinner was AMAZING! I made a new homemade turkey burger, roasted some veggies, heated up some corn and paired it all with a fresh salad.
I’ll share the recipe on GreenLiteBites this weekend. All 3 boys ate the burger with no complaints! Wow. I’m still in shock!
While writing this I munched on some frozen grapes but since I already used a frozen grape photo this week I’ll share this one instead.
That’s what she was doing while we ate outside. Doesn’t it just make you smile? :)
