Wednesday ~ October 19, 2011

I started rummaging around the kitchen too often yesterday.  I ate an apple and a bit of peanut butter before lunch.  I was so in a snacky mood.  Then I finished the little bit of sloppy joes in the frig, I don't think it was actually 200 calories but I'm not sure.  I told myself that I just wanted to get the containers out of the frig but it was just me with some serious snacking going on. Then I ate my nice healthy 300 calorie portion of the squash gratin.  And proceeded to eat more for another 200 calories, just because it was so tasty.  Moral of the story, I keep eating more calories than I want to!  I just need to stay out of the kitchen today!  (ya right)

Today I'm planning to eat more leftovers. I actually love having leftovers in the frig, it makes choices for lunch much easier.   Then I have a chipotle chicken salad I'm making for dinner while the rest of the crew will eat tacos. 
Plus I'll try not to be snacking!


  1. What you really need to do is figure out WHY you're snacking. Are you bored? Anxious? Tired? What emotions are driving you to the fridge? After you figure that out, you can figure out how to make it stop.

  2. pumpkin sloppy joes? that sounds a little bit like heaven.

  3. Snacking has been knocking on my door too. Stupid snacking thing just won't leave me alone. LOL

  4. It's hard, especially for you and I working with kids all day and always having to look at the next meal or snack and figure it out. Just stay away from the snacking or have those veggies ready to pop in the mouth instead. You can do this Debbbi, you're strong.
    Take care and love the fact you're keep track. I am trying, it's hard but trying. Blessings my friend!!

  5. Hope you get that snacking bug under control. Have a good week.
