I was Feeling a little snacky

Since this week is Spring Break and we didn’t have anything planned, I decided to plan a sleep- in.  No alarm clocks were set.  Justine and I… we’re going to sleep until we woke up.  She got up before I did, and at 10:30 I was being woken up because in her words “You’ve slept long enough.”  You got to love your children. Smile 

I had some cereal for breakfast.

Then I did the 2nd day of the 2nd week couch25K program.  Today I got to tell you.. it was hard. I’m not sure if I was just tired.  Or if my body wasn’t feeling it. Or what it was.  It was a struggle to finish, but I did.

For a snack I had Coconut Banana Bread with a tbs of peanut butter.

About a hour after that the hunger started to strike.  I started getting that snacky feeling.  I started out small.  And so begins my unplanned snacks.wed 006

Black pepper and sea salt pretzels with chick-fil-a sauce.  And yes, I know how bad the Chick-fil-a sauce is for you.. but in this case I just don’t care.  I love their sauce.  And I will continue eating it even if it’s 150 calories per container (which by the way I only ate about half of).

Then I had a serving of these…

Honey Cinnamon Almonds… so good.

And, then I started doing something.. I started plotting for food.  My guy was over here and I started thinking how I didn’t want anything in my house.  I wanted to eat something and I wanted to eat something that wasn’t good for me.  I wanted to go out to eat.  I started talking about how hungry I was.  He asked if I wanted to get something to eat.  I played it off and said no.  When inside my head I was screaming “Yes!”  My stomach was growling, but I refused to eat just incase he said something like “Come on let’s get something to eat.”  I knew that he wouldn’t after I said no, and really it was better.  I knew I didn’t need to go out to eat.  Not with how I was feeling.  I feel so silly for telling you this story.

And these are my planned snacks.

I ended up eating a salad with Holly’s Honey Curry Chicken, which is just as good as eating out.

I also tossed some wonton strips on there.  I love wonton strips because they add that crunch that you need in a salad.

Then for dessert… I’m shaking my head…

wed 010

Vanilla frozen yogurt with a chocolate chip cookie.. and not just any chocolate chip cookie, but one that has an Oreo stuffed in the cookie.  Thankfully I didn’t eat all of this.

I’m so glad that the day is almost over and the kitchen will be closed.

It was one of those snacky sort of days.

    I totally had a whole week of this last week… only to find out this week was my TOM. Usually I am much better at realising that I am out of control before a whole week goes by.
    Seriously over consumed last week… like in the red on my caloried EVERY DAY. I pride myself in being atleast accountable to my food journal for each thing I ate… but ugh! ALL THAT RED…. YUCK!
