After I had great time of reflection yesterday morning my husband mentioned having a big brunch of bacon, eggs, beans, hash browns and toast. I usually would say okay I will help prepare but then I would eat my normal breakfast of oatmeal or cold cereal.
Instead I thought I would join the family....this was a mistake!
I don't even like bacon or hash browns but I ate them anyway and I ended up eating way more calories than I needed or wanted.
After eating that stuff for brunch I felt like I was watching someone elses life...like in a movie! I went from full to stuffed by eating too many Peanut Butter cookies and Hot Chocolate.
Basically I binged for the rest of the day with the all or nothing attitude. I blew it so why not go all out. This binge was NOTHING like how I use to eat but I still was displeased with my actions!
It seems like I can't accept the fact that I am a SUCCESS story ( I am not at my goal yet but close) and when ever I spend any time dwelling on how well I have done, I lose control! This is something I am going to be spending time in prayer about...obviously I need to deal with these emotions and stay in the game of life at all times.
Breakfast was a bowl of Barbara's Shredded Oats, 1 cup of fresh strawberries and 3/4 milk. This is a new cereal to me and it tasted great...a bit of a change in my normal but still a healthy choice.
For morning snack I had a big, crisp apple and 11 almonds.
Lunch was a Green Smoothie consisting of 3 handfuls of spinach, a frozen banana, 2 tbsp. ground flaxmeal, 1 tbsp. natural peanut butter and 1 cup of almond breeze. Below is a picture of my little guy enjoying some of my lunch, he loves smoothies and I can never drink one alone!
Afternoon boost was more berries with yogurt and granola. This always keeps me going until supper.
Tonight will be Taco Salad leftovers for me, definitely one of my favorites.
Staying in the game!!! and being an active player!!!!
