Motivational Quote of the Day: "Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction." From the Motivational Spark pages.
Today was so hard!!! I started off well at breakfast, did fair for lunch and then felt lost at dinner time. It is so hard to get motivated to take the time to plan and prepare meals when it is just myself and my four year old daughter at home when my husband is traveling. I have just got to find a way to get a handle on this because I want to continue building a solid foundation of eating habits for her and I don't want my bad habits to rub off on her!
Sadly, I polished off the last of my most difficult candy-the cadbury eggs-so luckily those are gone for the season! I just can't seem to eat only one at a time-I ended up eating 3! It is funny how I seem to have such control over some things, and less, if not hardly any , over others. Oh well-beyond that, I had a bowl of cereal, jello and an english muffin for dinner. What the heck kind of dinner is that? Who does that? I can't believe I am admitting this out loud!
My daughter had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Uug-I can't believe I admitted that out loud either.
Does anyone have any suggestions on easy dinner ideas in this situation? I wish I felt more comfortable using my crock pot, but I just don't like having it on all day when I am not here. I am trying to think of meals that are simple, yet not so processed, like box dinners and stuff. Any ideas are welcome!
Maybe I will check out the Spark receipes for ideas too. Anything would be better than a repeat of tonight!
