So I'm realizing something about myself the past few days. I am really hungry in the morning. I am starving in the afternoon. I could really handle minimal dinner. I think I have been trying to save points for dinner, but then I am really hungry around 3. Today I actually ate my "dinner" around 4. Then I was good. I picked at the kids' fruit salad when they had dinner.
I've had some ice cream in my fridge since last night. I was OK last night...didn't have any. But it has been calling me all day. I decided as soon as the kids finished their dinner we would eat it up and get it out of here. So we did and it's gone. It's funny to me that I can have all the ice cream novelties in my freezer that I do and not be bothered, but bring in a pint or a quart of ice cream and I am over.
Anyway. I am thinking that tomorrow I may not worry so much about the amount of points I consume early in the day as long as I spend them well. I know I can be satisfied with a big ol' 2-4 point salad for dinner, so why should I be starving in the late morning and early afternoon?
here's my day in food:
english muffin with RF strawberry cream cheese-2
(I was craving that strawberry cream cheese this morning but put it on an english muffin instead of a bagel)
(nonfat plain yogurt, frozen fruit, Kashi GO LEAN! Crunch Honey Almond Flax cereal)
turkey sandwich on lite bread with lettuce, tomato, FF mayo and dijon mustard-3
honey wheat pretzels-2
WW chocolate cake-1
(bought these a week or so ago but never tried one. they are DELISH!)
10 g HoneyBees-1
(whole wheat tortilla, leftover sauteed veggies, wedge Laughing Cow)
1 cup 1% cottage cheese-3
ice cream with the kiddos-7
Nice long walk this evening and been pretty active today, too.
used 30.5 points...but with 3 AP's, I'm only counting it as 3.5 of my flex points!
