First of all, thank you for all the love and support on my coming clean post. It means a lot to me!
So, as promised, here I am after my first full day since issuing myself a wake-up call. I started the morning with a glass of water, something I’m used to since I am breastfeeding, followed by a breakfast of egg whites and veggies. Normally our days begin in a leisurely fashion but today was Lincoln’s first day at pre-school so we had to be up, fed, dressed, and out the door by 8:15 am. It was tight but we did it. Skipping breakfast was never an option simply because I love it too much. I also love being able to set the stage for the day food-wise.
Lincoln will be attending pre-school every Monday morning in Rock Creek. He is there for 3 hours giving me plenty of time to fit in some exercise. Today, after dropping off our kids, my friend and I strapped on the babes and headed for a walk. It’s a good thing we had 3 hours because soon after we began her little guy decided it was time to eat. We took a detour to the local coffee shop to chat and feed the little ones. I had a decaf Americano with a splash of milk. Coffee is a tough one for me because it always makes me crave something sweet. I cannot drink coffee with a savoury breakfast but I also know if I have coffee then I will want something sweet for breakfast. The best option for me is to usually forego coffee in the morning or else I find myself reaching for a pre-breakfast piece of toast with peanut butter, or a handful of cereal, to go with it.
It’s one of my triggers.
Thankfully I had good company to distract me today.
We finished our walk after we were done and have planned to make it a weekly occurrence.
The rest of the day was filled with lunch, grocery shopping, feedings, and making supper. I made chicken stir-fry for supper and the boys had rice while I served mine over spinach. It’s like I said yesterday; one day and one meal at a time.
Today I moved and kept my eating clean and it feels great.
Thanks again for all your comments!
