I flushed it!

My husband left this morning for a couple of days and along with his absence came my wanting to eat like crazy!!! This happens every time he goes away, I don't know why but it does. The Rainbow Chips Ahoy cookies and leftover sundae topping were sitting on top of the fridge and they were calling out to me.....the whisper was ever so sweet and I knew if something didn't happen they would end up in my tummy. So there fate was to meet the sewer system...that's right, I flushed them down the toilet. Problem solved because there isn't anything else in the house that isn't healthy!!

To keep myself from gorging (because that really is the behaviour that got me to where I was with my weight) on everything in the house (even though it is all healthy) I have made myself a 2 day menu that I plan on following. Hopefully this will keep me accountable to my blogging friends and therefore I will feel good about my choices. Following is my menu and I will let you know if I deviate from this plan at all.

Breakfast- 1 cup Steel Cut Oats topped with 1 tsp. brown sugar and 1 cup fresh berries.
Snack- if needed a cup of fresh pineapple.
Lunch- 3 oz. chicken breast (sliced) on 2 slices of Organic Rye Bread with lettuce and honey mustard. 1/2 cup each of baby carrots, cucumber, peppers and celery.
Snack- Green Monster Smoothie from The Clean Eating Mama blog.
*I haven't had one of these before but bought what I needed to make it yesterday and I am looking forward to trying it. I love smoothies generally!*
Supper- Homemade Lentil Soup, 8 organic Stone Wheat crackers and a Babybel Swiss Mini Cheese.
Snack- if needed a Grapple. *These too I have not tried but heard they were good and bought them yesterday to try.*
Breakfast- 1 cup Steel Cut Oats with a mashed banana and 1 tablespoon of organic Peanut butter. A side of 1 cup fresh pineapple.
Snack- if needed 1/2 cup berries and 113g of yogurt.
Lunch- 3oz. chicken cut up in 2 cups mixed greens, 1 tbsp. raisins, 1 tbsp. cranberries topped with 1 tbsp. Raspberry Vinaigrette.
Snack- Smoothie of 1 cup Soy milk and 1 cup blueberries.
Supper- Vegan Chili and a homemade Tea Biscuit.
Snack- during 'Biggest Loser' will be a bag of Smart Pop Popcorn.


  1. Oh how I hate that feeling...

    There have been many cookies that have gone down my disposal...other times they escape that fate and I can handle eating just one or two.

    I hope you make it through the next couple days. At least you noticed the trigger...

  2. Yep, planning ahead is smart!!!

  3. hope Shawn comes back soon=) good going!!!

  4. Hi Christine

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. It looks like we started at similar weights at about the same time. :) And it appears that we have little ones that are close to the same age. Our youngest daughter was born on 11/5/09, when was your little girl born?

  5. Good for you! That is something that far too many of us don't do when we should. For you, feeling better and being healthy is better than the temporal relief you would feel from those dang cookies!

  7. Great job resisting temptation! I've been doing awful with that lately! :(

    Great plan that you have! Maybe I should do that! :)

    Blessings, Christine!
