BREAKFAST (8:00 a.m.)
1 cup cereal; 1 cup milk; multivitamin
SNACK (12:00 p.m.)
6 mini sweet peppers and 2 tbsp of roasted red pepper hummus. I think these sweet peppers are my FAVORITE raw veggie to eat. They are sooo sweet and sooo yummy! You just pop them in or take a bite from the whole...no cutting necessary. Delish!
LUNCH (1:30 p.m.)
It doesn't quite look like it does on the packaging, does it. LOL It taste pretty good though.
SNACK (4:45 p.m.)
6 crackers; Laughing cow cheese wedge
DINNER (6:00 p.m.)
This looks like a pretty decent portioned dinner, right? Well, it would be IF that was all I ate. Problem: After I finished stirring in the cheese sauce of the Kraft Deluxe Mac and Cheese dinner (which is 320 calories per cup, by the way!!), I had about 6 heaping teaspoons full of it PRIOR to putting it on the plate!! So, imagine double of what you see on the plate. I was so concerned about resisting the cake, I neglected my other vice (mac and cheese--whether store bought or homemade, doesn't matter) It was a total binge on mac and cheese. BUT, It definitely could have been worse.
Keeping it all in perspective of my total day, it's all good. It happens. Whatever. No problem. It's not the end of the world. So, I won't act like it is. ;-)
BUT, I do think about the fact that for all the calories in that mac and cheese, I could have had a big ole slice of that tempting cake that I blogged about earlier. LOL You just have to laugh! I doubt the cake would have been as filling though...would have been just empty sugar calories... but it would have been satisfying. LOL I have no doubt. LOL
By the way, that cake is almost gone already!! I'll not have to look at it too much longer, I'm sure. One more day tops. :-( Pray for my hubby.

JUNK (can't tell you the times...)
I was at a Girl Scout Sing-a-long and Movie night with my daughter at the National Harbor. From the time we parked the car, until the time that the actual movie, "Tangled" began, I consumed the following foods:
One White Macadamia cookie leftover from my daughter's Subway meal. I ate that getting out of the car!! Ugh! I couldn't bear to see it left in the car while we were out and about. Bad decision. But one is better than three.
My daughter and I shared a large Mango Italian Ice from Rita's. We were passing by on our way back to the car to get the lawn chairs. So, I'm guessing it was around 5:30p that I ate this. Rita's does have a sugar -free variety of their Italian ice; but they were out all out when we passed by. So, this was straight sugar!
Mike & Ike Zours!! More sugar! What in the world. I a few handfuls (by "handfuls" I mean about 5-6...what you see in the picture) These were consumed while watching the movie when everyone was out there chomping on all kinds of stuff. And, I was chomping too. I would say that I probably had bout 15 of those little candies.
And that's it. The later portion of the day just went to pot. I intended to make good choices today ESPECIALLY because weigh-in is tomorrow. That's really why I brought my sugar snap peas and carrots. That was supposed to be a snack for during the movie. But, I wound up eating that with my lunch.
But, I can't be too mad about my day. Honestly, there were a lot worse things that I wanted and there was just food food food down there. Fortunately for me, it's all expensive food food food. So although I wanted to try gelato for the first time, I couldn't bring myself to pay the ridiculous price for a very very small amount. So, we didn't get it. And although we intended to get some cupcakes at Cake Love, the line was crazy long so we decided to leave. That's why we wound up at Rita's! LOL
So, not a perfect day, but not TOOO bad either. I survived to tell the tale.
