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.

My hubby had been out of town from Wednesday last week until late last night. Eventhough he just got home last night, he had to go to work that same evening. When he got home from work this morning, he was not empty-handed! He had this:
Now, I did NOT have any. That is NOT my missing chunk. So, calm down everyone. LOL
I missed my hubby while he was gone but I did enjoy the house being free of all temptation. The only thing that was in my fridge and pantry was the groceries that I purchased...which were all great, healthy choices. (If you buy it, they'll eat it. What other choice do they have?) But now.... CAKE!
I am NOT good with temptation. My strategy is to AVOID it. I know that eventually, I need to get to a point of my self-will overpowering and conquering the temptation, but, sadly, I am not really there yet.
Unfortunately (for him) and fortunately (for me) that cake (which already has a big piece cut out of it... hubby's doing) will NOT be here long. It'll probably be gone in about 3 days. (DEEP SIGH) The kids will get home today and see it and both will have some, I'm sure. Hubby will have more slices and then.... GONE! Just like that. So, I don't have to survive long with it in the house. I took the top off of it to take the picture and it smelled SOOOOO good. LOL But, I will NOT have it. I will NOT. I will NOT.
There is nothing wrong with having a slice, but my problem is that it would start a spiral effect into MORE... many more slices. So, please friends, you do not need to state the obvious of how I can have the one slice and I shouldn't deprive myself. LOL It's just not that simple.... not right now. I know ME.
But, the good thing is that RIGHT NOW, I feel good. I feel strong. I don't really have a desire for the cake at all..... RIGHT NOW. LOL I'll let you know when it's gone and my daily food picture tracking will show you guys that I AM being successful at resisting it.
I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL at resisting that pumpkin cream cheese cake!!!! I WILL. (Talking to myself... ) LOL
