Today was better than yesterday. No crazy urges for peanut m&ms or anything! I got up earlier than everyone else to let my chickens out and to drink my coffee in peace. I also wanted a chance to look through my 2015 goal workbook that I had downloaded. I have lots of things I want to make happen, and I’m hoping that putting these things down in words will help keep me focused and moving forward! So, I started to scroll through and fill in some of the workbook pages while I sipped my peppermint mocha coffee. Once the kids and the hubby were up I made some breakfast. Bacon, French toast, and eggs for them. For myself, I sautéed some broccoli in the bacon fat and then scrambled in some eggs. I heated up some leftover gravy from my Crockpot chicken and poured that over my eggs and broccoli. Washed that down with some almond milk. Yum!
Now I knew I would be out all afternoon so I should have planned lunch better, but I didn’t. I should have packed a few hard boiled eggs, something easy to eat….what I did pack were some toasted coconut flakes. I took my daughter to ballet and then met up with my mother to drive out and visit my grandmother. My mother is also doing the detox this month so she had some 21DSD friendly snacks packed as well. Herb almond crackers, cauliflower hummus, chopped veggies, and some nut mixes. We grazed on all that throughout the trip down and while hanging out at my grandmothers house. Then we went out to dinner. Dessert was tempting me from the case while we waited for a table and I swear the cookies on the plate by the register were laughing at me! I was so hungry!! Once we were seated I ordered a chicken taco salad. Lettuce, tomato, olives, jalapeños, salsa, guac, chicken…not too bad.
I was still hungry when I got home at the end of the day, so I had 3 hard boiled eggs and a mug of my peppermint hot chocolate.
