I attempted to write this post several times but was continually interrupted by the eldest Duggar boy's wedding. DEAR GOD!
Man I have to say it was REAL tempting to over eat today. Just stressful. I had errands to run, carpool to do, babies to take care of and then got them to bed solo so Ed could work (he's 100x more busy than I). I saw some cute Almond Joy easter egg things at Target with Amelia and bought some. Now, normally I wouldn't even consider it. But it sounded good. I waited until I got good and hungry and enjoyed one. It was a little piece of heaven in the midst of my crazy kid chaos. I wanted about 14 more.
But I didn't do that.
I'm feeling good. I'm finding that this time around my stomach is holding a lot more weight than before. I only figured that out since I'm in size 8's and still 168 ish. And after meals I look about 3 months pregnant. My stomach is just shot. All the more motivation not to overeat- no pudge!
I'm starting to predict my portions more and serving only what I'll eat. So leaving less on the plate, but serving less to begin with. I have to remember to slow down and taste the food. When I eat too fast I find myself wanting the meal to last longer towards the end- which could cause me to overeat. So I'm just trying to slow down. Slowing down is eternally hard for me.
Here's my tracker:
Some whole wheat spaghetti with meat sauce
Salad with Miso dressing
Slice of sourdough with butter
