Lunch Week 2

Today I had one home sick due to nerves about the coming weeks. Who could blame him really. I get a little queasy when I think about it myself. Still I made sure to stay the course with my plans for the week. Drink more water, plan for snacks and make and eat a lunch for myself and sit at the table to eat it.

Let’s start with the water. I set 3 bottles of water totaling 64 oz of water on the table. A visible reminder to drink up! I managed to get all but about 8 oz down!

For Lunch it was an egg sandwich and tomato soup. Perfect for this cold day. I had planned on Bananas and Mandarin Oranges for a fruit, but I found Persimmons and Black Berries on sale at the grocery store and, having never tried a Persimmon before, I decided to give it a go! Not bad. I think mine might have been a little over-ripe. It was very sweet though. Milk was the drink of choice for lunch.

I was also very proud of myself for making this lunch. I was stressed, I was trapped with home with a stressed-out kid and I was faced with a HUGE temptation:

Left over candy from dear daughter’s birthday and I didn’t cave! I didn’t even want it! Nor did I make a bee-line for the 12 left over cup cakes in the kitchen! Victory! The stress eater in me was quiet and allowed me to take good care of me! I am so proud of myself!

I also found that with the water challenge I wasn’t even hungry for a snack so I didn’t have one yesterday.

I wish I could say that things went as well with dinner but with the sickie at home and dear daughter walking in at 3:30 handing me a fist-full of papers to sign announcing that she had to be back at the school at 4:45 for a speech practice I ended up pulling leftover pizza from Sunday’s party out of the fridge and serving that up. Beef & Mushroom pie is scheduled and will be ready to go tonight no matter what though. 🙂

    1. The cupcakes are difficult to avoid indeed! I’m just not craving them though. Weird, but I’ll take it!
