Monday - busy Memorial Day weekend

Monday, May 28, 2012

I have not been very succesful staying on track this weekend!

Saturday was the memorial service for my boyfriend's father. We had a light breakfast before we headed up to his mom's. She had a ham dinner for lunch for the relatives that arrived early that day. The service was very nice, and it was followed by a nice reception at the church - lots of appetizers, finger foods, and sweet treats. We headed back to the house where ham dinner #2 was served for the relatives that stayed late. Then when it got dark one of the nephews got a bonfire going and there were hot dogs and s'mores. I did a pretty good job restraining myself at each meal, but there were so many meals!

Sunday was much better, my boyfriend wanted to go to Denny's for breakfast (yuck) so we did. I had two scrambled eggs (egg substitute) and one piece of french toast, no butter, very light syrup. For lunch we had leftover hot dogs and for dinner we went to the family's favorite pizza place. Did a lot better restraining myself but not the healthiest food to eat.

Today I am back to work, and back on track with my normal food. Fruit for breakfast, and veggies for lunch. I've been doing a really good job with my first two meals of the day during the work week but it's all kind of gone in the crapper when I get home. I'm going to make a conscious effort to correct that this week. I brought some mashed black beans and healthy multigrain chips to help fill me up a little so I don't have the urge to snack this afternoon before dinner. I'm going to make some bean and veggie soup to bring for lunch this week and cook up some sort of dinner salad with lentils or beans and quinoa for easy dinners. I have a better chance of eating something healthy if it is there for me to make quickly than if it takes a long time to prepare!

    Mm, mashed black beans. That's a good idea for a filling snack. Going to try that.

    Good for you for all the self-restraint. Once you commit to eating in a healthy way you realize that you're swimming in a ocean of food that is really bad for you--and it's easy to see how people unwittingly gain weight over time.

    Do you track your food?
