I did pretty good remembering to take photos of my food yesterday up until the end of my day. Here are some of my eats.
I had an egg sandwich that was larger than my bread! My friend Jamie got me hooked on Panera’s bread so I stopped by and picked up a whole grain loaf to try. I had it sliced thin so by the time I loaded up my eggs, ham, and pepper jack cheese, it was too big for the size of the bread. It was still tasty though.
I had a grapefruit the side and some Dark Magic iced coffee with SF hazelnut creamer. This is my new way to eat grapefruit. I slice it like an orange and put two packets of Stevia on it. Yum.
I also had some Dutch Bros in my refillable hydro flask and later in the day Jamie stopped by work with another Dutch Bros afternoon pick-me-up.
My first snack of the day was my usual Greek yogurt with frozen strawberries and Grapenuts. This combo never gets old.
For an afternoon snack I had a rice cake with peanut butter and honey. It is much tastier with a full 2 tsp of peanut butter. (I forgot to snap a photo)
My lunch was similar to last week’s veggie-only salad as I had more veggies that needed to be cut up/used. I cut up carrots, celery, cucumber, and bell pepper. I made it a pizza themed salad and added turkey pepperoni, olives, a WW string cheese, and some kidney beans. I dressed my salad with some light zesty Italian dressing. I have another container of veggies to eat on this week and am looking forward to another pizza themed salad.
My lunch and afternoon snack didn’t hold me over really well so I was starving by the time I got home last night. Kenyon isn’t feeling well so we were planning to take him to Quick Care. I knew if I wanted until after to eat (it isn’t quick at all when you visit those places) I’d be in serious trouble. I toasted two slices of Panera sourdough bread and ate that with some butter while I cooked a chicken breast. The toast was so good I had two more slices. I was able to eat my chicken dipped in some Chick-fil-A sauce while Kenyon got ready to go to the doctor. (I forgot to snap a photo).
My dinner wasn’t the most nutritional meal and for the remainder of the night as we were filling prescriptions and getting a few items for Kenyon, I knew I was searching for “something.” I honestly think I was wanting something sweet but telling myself that I didn’t plan it nor did I need it. I got some Pringles and after munching on a few of them knew that wasn’t the “something” I wanted. Kenyon selected two kinds of ice cream at Rosauers since the same was 2 for $5. I knew on the drive home I wanted some ice cream.
Some ice cream turned into three bowls of unmeasured ice cream. Good news is the sugar craving is now gone! (I forgot to snap a photo)
Today I am back on track, although I don’t have a solid meal plan for dinner tonight. I think after feeling successful the last two weeks I am realizing I really should have planned my evening meals better. None-the-less, I’ll figure out something. I’m going to also dial back the sweets for today and maybe even tomorrow to off-set my indulgence yesterday.
