Grocery Shopping While Hungry

I slept late today. It felt good.  Only on Sundays that option is available and I take it!  My baby is 8 now so when the kids get up, they don't necessarily need us right away so they let us sleep.  Nice. 

So I started the day late, ate my normal breakfast and just grabbed a Nature Valley granola bar while heading out the door. 

After our meeting, we stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things. I was hungry! I hate to go to the grocery store while hungry.  The temptations are always there but when you are hungry the temptations seem way more intense.  Well, I resisted them all! Even with the kids clamoring for chips, Little Debbie snack cakes and all that junk that they want.  I stuck to the list (which was mostly veggies) and we were out of there.  Success!

So by the time we came home for dinner I was STARVING!  Like give me food NOW kind of starving. I scarfed a banana because unfortunately I was making a somewhat time consuming dinner.  I was just making meatballs but they take awhile to make, brown and finish off in the oven.  Plus I made a couple of different sauces for the meatballs as we were taste testing sweet and sour sauces.  I'll blog about the taste test in a week or so, I happen to have a stock pile of new recipes to be posted but eventually I'll go a week without wanting to cook anything original and get caught up.  :-)

So I had about 460 calories before dinner and I probably had 1000 calories for dinner.  Big dinner.  I ate a lot of meatballs and then had a small salad.  The meatballs were about 80 calories a piece, maybe less as I made them small but I ate like 12 of them.  I'm totally full and not going to eat a snack so I'll finish up the day with about 1500 calories.  I'm good with that.


  1. Some days are just like that. I know I have had them. The meatballs sound awesome!

  2. i love meatballs!!! i love how when the kids are older you can relax a little bit and not worry about the house burning down around you! lol
