Three days in a row with no take-out or dining out has to be some sort of record for me. While yesterday was the third day of eating only foods prepared at home, it wasn’t the best planned or nutritionally sound day.
First, let me share what I ate. My husband prepared a huge four egg omelet, with spinach, one strip of bacon and Swiss cheese. I also had a another piece of bacon on the side and half of an avocado. Since breakfast was a bit late and large, I didn’t feel hungry at lunch time. Later in the afternoon, I had less than an ounce of ham and a cookie. I know, I know. For dinner, I had a chicken stir fry with a ton of broccoli and carrots, over a half of cup of rice. Then in the evening, I had two more cookies.
It wasn’t my best food day this week, but it didn’t include pizza delivery or McDonalds like other Friday night’s might have. The cookies were in the house because my sister had brought them over Thursday night. They’re gone now, so today will be cookie-free. Yesterday, I just didn’t put in the effort to make sure I was making healthy food choices. I realize this and today will be different. We would normally eat out on the weekend, maybe even for breakfast, but I am determined not to do that today. I guess we’ll know how determined by tomorrow morning. I’m not going to lie, today will be tough. Cravings and thoughts of food are attacking my resolve by the hour.
There isn’t much on the plan for today. I might work a couple of hours of overtime, maybe some cleaning and if the knee is up for it, maybe a walk outside. I hear the sun might be out tomorrow. I’ll believe it when I see it. I’ve told you that not much happens around here, right? I wasn’t kidding.
What are your plans for this weekend? Will it include anything out of the normal routine?
