I'm surprised, it really works for me

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

That about sums it up. I feel very much in control of what I eat thanks to that taking pictures thing. It really is strange... I feel liberated not having to count calories and I think I'm staying well within my suggested range... well, I don't know, cause I'm not counting, right???

Today was a hard day though. I only slept like 3h last night, just could not sleep and felt like crap this morning.

The boys an I were out all day though. We went to an indoors play ground to let some of their energy off, I think it worked. A couple of friends and kids joined us but talking with them was hard work, and so was listening, due to my ears being slightly blocked up. We had lunch at that play ground, and you're not allowed to bring your own, so I chose a ham and cheese sandwich, but was rather a little disappointed how little the jolly thing was... so I added some of offspring's chips to my plate. It wasn't the most filling nor satisfying lunch.

Afterwards I had to do some errands and kept the boys in line with the promise of another play at McD's, inclusive a soft serve (bad parenting I suppose, yet it did help keeping slightly tired kids happy). I didn't choose an ice cream, I got myself a chocolate bar and ate only have of it, that makes me feel really good, even though parts of my inside still roars for that other bit of chocolate bar

For dinner we had a lighter meal: Pad Thai, boy I love it!!!!

And I will have a night cuppa of hot milk and honey again, you know, for my throat...

    It helps, doesn't it, the tracking? Keeps us honest with ourselves!

    Great pictures! A photo food journal is a wonderful way to keep track.
