Cake for Lunch
Saturday, June 16, 2012
Today being Friday, I had my typical breakfast of a veggie omelet at work in the cafe. I make sure they use olive oil instead of butter. At this point, when they see me in line they go get it ;-). Then I have it with all veggies (except onions and peppers and jalapenos). I forgo the meat so that I can have cheese.
My daughter gets her love of cheese from both me and my husband. Then I put a tad of salsa on top. Not a too terrible breakfast every Friday to offset my banana and Cheerios the rest of the week.
Next comes lunch. There was a cake contest fundraiser for the local American Cancer Society Relay for Life. I am an active participant in the event. Since it's real close to where I work I went to it. Yet I was determined to ONLY eat cake for lunch. Not a meal AND cake, just cake. I was a 'bit' concerned whether to would fill me up or not but made the decision nonetheless that that was all I was going to have. I ended up with a piece of carrot cake, banana chocolate, and upside down German chocolate. I ate 'part' of each. The carrot was the best and most filling with the others being pretty, blah. One of my best friends made the carrot cake too which was good.
Finally we have supper. We 'usually' always go out Friday nights. Not much more than that except for Taco Tuesday (another story). I decided to go to Applebee's and get an oriental salad to try and offset the cake a bit. "I" usually share with my daughter but I didn't think she would eat much salad so we got her, her first kids meal. We did get the two for $20 and get twisted potato chips with cheese/salsa sauce for an appetizer. I know I ate a bit too much of it but I was hungry after just eating cake for lunch. I got grilled chicken on my salad yet I did use the dressing provided. It's a vinegarette so not quite as bad as a 'creamy' one.
My husband got the three cheese penne. He said we probably should have just let her have some of his meal for a change instead of getting Jessica her own meal. I do usually say that I refuse to get her a kids meal until she's five, that she can just eat half of my meal, lol. In the end my two year old ate an ENTIRE bowl of macaroni and cheese and drank some chocolate milk, they were out of white
I wasn't 'too' worried about her eating all that though because as much as she is a busy body, she'll burn a lot of it off. And if she'll eat it well....that's good too since she has her picky moments from time to time now that she's older.
So my eating is still something to be worked on. I still want to try to get to a point where this is a 'lifestyle' rather than something I have to 'work' at everyday.
