If I push this back any further in the week I’m going to have to change the name XD
I think the pity party is over even though I’m still feeling a bit blah and would like nothing better than to turn on the TV and hide under the covers but I’m a grown up so it’s off to work I go. Plus it’s Wednesday. I know I have plans that will eat up my entire morning then lunch then a few hours of writing in the office and I’m one day closer to Friday!!
I was responsible enough to make sure I was up early enough to sit and write for a little bit. I find if I miss out on my morning time it makes me less happy. Technically I could sleep in more but I feel better if I give myself the time to do some stuff on the computer, drink my coffee, and try to make my brain awake enough to face work.
Onto the meal plans
I was reminded again this week that I have to eat. I’ve taught my body that I will provide meals on a regular basis so when I try to slip back into my non-eating habits it doesn’t always go over well. Monday I scheduled an interview that was supposed to take an hour but took two hours so lunch fell drastically behind schedule. By the time I was done with the interview I was sooooooo hungry. Once I ate, back to normal, so note to self: You have to eat.
In my pity party rage last night I had a cheap frozen pizza and it was okay but it did remind me why I limit eating frozen food. It was salty and not super tasty. I would’ve been better to buy a premade crust and throw some fresh toppings on it but I’ll do that next time.
I haven’t completely overcome the guilt I feel when I choose to eat poorly but I recognize I made the choice.
I do what I always do when I’ve made a poor decision: recognize what I did, recognize how I could’ve handled the situation better, and find a better option so next time I’m in the situation I might think differently. I also know I’m just human and that wasn’t my last frozen pizza but hopefully for the next few months at least I’ll remember this time and think twice before throwing a frozen meal into my cart.
I’m off to work. Hope the week is going well. I feel like we’ve gone from “Winter is coming” to Winter is here. I swear it was still light when I was getting up last week, now it’s all dark and dreary but it’s been clearing up in the afternoons so I can go for a walk. Quick side note about walking: I found someone at work to walk with for a couple days this week anyways so that’s exciting, trying to get my steps in 🙂
Dinner: Rice and veggies
Dinner: Leftover rice and veggies + chicken
Lunch: Wrap with veggies and dip
Dinner: I didn’t make this last week so I’m going to make it this week. Pasta with roasted red pepper sauce (Trusting I get up early Saturday to pick up ingredients) This is a recipe from my Thug Kitchen cook book and it looks amazing!!
Dinner: Slow cooker Soup-Still deciding which one I want to do but I’ll share the recipe once I have it. I’ve seen recipes for a chicken tortilla soup or something along those lines so that’s what I’m going for this week
Dinner: Plus if I make that on Saturday I can enjoy leftovers on Sunday 😀
