Yesterday was too close for comfort when it came to my nutrition plan. I had a great breakfast and snacked while we were on the road between errands. We got home mid afternoon, but I didn't realize it was that late. I went ahead and ate my sandwich. Then I realized it was almost 4 o'clock!
Now I had approx 4 hours before nighttime rituals to eat a full meal and my "dessert". I wasn't in the least bit hungry, but missing these 2 meals would result in a calorie deficit of about 400, not to mention the havoc played with all my other nutrients.
I ended up staying up late and cramming all the planned food in before I did. My belly wasn't so happy with me, but I must say the result was a good night's sleep.
Today I stayed home. Hubby was off doing his thing. He usually gets home around 2, so I had some small snacks and started the bbq. I was determined the big meal would be when he came in. Well, by 3 I was hungry. The real thing. So I made my peanut butter and banana sandwich. He didn't get in til after 4, so the big meal and my planned dessert are put off til way past a normal dinner time.
I'm going to try again tomorrow, This time, a nice brunch before church and a nice mid-afternoon meal. I'll fit dessert in at a decent time, and fill in with healthy snacks.
One of these days I'll get it right!
