Indulged today

Monday, May 27, 2019

I indulged some today. We went to Ihop, and we don't go there often. One of my favorite things there was the stuffed french toast topped with strawberries, yum! It was a tad overdone, so the edges were hard, but that was okay, because it helped me not to overeat. I know my blood sugar was really high after eating, I had to lay down when we got home and am still not feeling very well because of it. But, I don't indulge often, and I decided that for this one meal, I would. Perhaps I should not have, but it felt really good to just let myself eat what I wanted and not calorie or carb count for once.

Don't worry, for the rest of the day I will be very good, lunch will be a protein shake and dinner will be a chicken leg with some asparagus. I have most of the meals for the week planned out, leftovers will be big on the menu. I don't normally do meal planning by day, we just wing it, but I am wanting to try to do better meal planning this summer and see how it works for our family. One of the problems that we've been having is that the kids have been just eating whatever they want, whenever they want, and not asking. We'll buy them enough food for lunches for two weeks and it will be gone in one. We'll work on that this summer too. We bought snack foods for them and told them that this is all we are buying, so don't overeat, don't eat more than one of each a day. If you run out, oh well, you are out of snacks till we go grocery shopping again. It's not like they don't have enough to eat, it's that they want to eat only the 'junk food' that we buy. So, if it happens again, no more junk food.

Anyway, waiting till I feel better to work out, probably before I cook dinner, it's pretty hot outside right now. Gonna play a game with DH in the meanwhile and then work on my goal planner for June. I could totally go lay down again, but I'm not going to let this get me down for the whole day.

Hope you have a good Memorial Day and remember those who served, those who gave all.

    I had a bit too much to eat yesterday and today. I did do a lot of exercise. My plan tomorrow is to eat light.

    I indulged a bit today too. I limit my sweets to ONE day each week. DH brought me home a 'brownie' yesterday (my sweet treat day). It was actually more like a piece of devil's food cake w/o frosting. I ate a portion of it yesterday and put the rest in a ziploc.

    I did REALLY well with exercising this morning (burned 1100 cals before 9am!) and let myself have another piece of cake today...and promptly put the rest in the freezer so I wouldn't be tempted.

    I hope you felt better as the day went on.

    Good planning on the snack foods for the kiddos. It's never too early to teach them 'budgeting' with food, money, whatever!

    I made spaghetti with zoodles for dinner. OMG - so good! Have you tried zoodles yet? I bought a spiralizer to make my own because I like them so much. Honestly, I do not miss spaghetti noodles at all.

    Have a safe Memorial Day emoticon

    I spent a week eating like that, most of the time, on vacation. Back on track and it feels good!

    Thank you for your service! I usually end up eating half and taking half home when I indulge. Sounds like you have a good plan, have a wonderful day!

    Wishing you a good Memorial Day as well! We live in a heavily populated military area with Ft Bragg 1/2 hour away. 7 of our neighbors on our little loop are active duty. So grateful for our Vets.
