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.
