Well, day 2 is shaping up to be a good one. It's now afternoon and I'm feeling a little more energy than I did yesterday. For breakfast, I made the same scramble that I had yesterday, but this time I remembered my 'greens'. I did throw the spinach in at the end to cook it a little since eating eggs on fresh spinach didn't exactly appeal to me.
My snack consisted of light Activia yogurt and 14g of almonds *and yes, I measured those*.
Lunch was some lentil soup that I made. I did prepare all of my veggies that I needed for my soup and for dinner this morning. I figured, why not? I was standing there at the cutting board, I might as well.
Tonight's dinner will be homemade sloppy joes. This particular recipe doesn't come from the new cookbook, but it doesn't have too many 'sugary' items in it. I am going to have mine on nine grain bread. The girls can have the buns.
I've now picked up my kitchen...again. I've got enough soup to put in the fridge and some in the freezer. I pulled the buns out of the freezer, set up the ingredients by the stove for tonight's dinner, and I'm having a cup of hot decaf tea because it's cold today.
As for exercise, I've taken the week off. I'm still doing my "Mad Abs" *a new challenge I started with the gals on the 1st*, but I'm just focusing on my food this week. I need to focus on my food. I need to find my energy. When you are lacking energy, it's difficult to get some of the 'easiest' things done around the house. It's frustrating. And yes, I know that I have 3 children home most of the day, but I want to be a better momma.
Thank you for sticking with me while I get my thoughts out. It helps me to write things down...kind of like a journal of how I'm feeling with the subtle tweaks that I'm making. So hang in there! If there is something else that you'd like me to discuss, don't hesitate to ask. I don't want to bore you with my daily stuff.
Keep on friends, keep on!
