The blessing and the curse of working in childcare: We are allowed to eat the school lunches. Sometimes, the meals are gross and totally not anything an adult would put in their mouth. But sometimes the meal is macaroni and cheese or bean burritos. And then it is super hard to resist. On Monday, before I started this journey, I had a burrito. Today was mac and cheese... it didn't look amazing, but it looked pretty decent. It took all that was in me to resist. Instead, I ate my packed-at-home lunch of yogurt, granola, and an apple. It was actually pretty tasty!
Then I came home and made dinner. I had a salad, some spaghetti, a couple grilled chicken strips, and sauce that we made here a week ago. We dumped a whole load of fresh veggies in with a jar of Kroger brand spaghetti sauce and then put it in a plastic container. It was really, really good. Onions, peppers, zucchini, carrots, and it all pretty much tastes like the sauce! It was nice to sneak some extra veggies into my meal, although the salad was delicious as well.
I feel really, really, good about today. I took a walk, I ate well, and I wasn't left feeling hungry! I'm not counting calories or anything, but I know for a fact I made good choices for all of my foods today. Off to a good start!
