Don’t I know it! I was sick last week… a cold. Said cold came with a fever and chills. I really wasn’t interest in making food, but I did. It wasn’t all the best choices, but hey, I tried.
Monday I ate some of the left over black bean soup that is more like dip with some chips. I also ate a cup of ramen, a few ravioli and a piece of garlic bread.
Tuesday was more of the black bean soup but with a little corn bread and some Ramen. I was starting feel that cold coming on and just wasn’t interested in eating much.
Wednesday was a long day. I ate some leftover tomato and red pepper soup. After a very long day of driving Lilli and her friends around, I came home and had some tofu and veggies and rice that John had made for me.
By Thursday I really wasn’t feeling good. But I got up and made a regular Thanksgiving dinner for the family, complete with turkey, potatoes, stuffing, green beans, rolls, the works. I also made a few vegetarian options for myself. I ate mushroom wellington, salad, broccoli, a roll or two, and some green bean casserole. For desert I ate some of my sugar-free cranberry sauce in a pastry.
Friday and Saturday, and even a bit of Sunday were all some variation of leftovers. One of my faults is watching food go to waste. I just can’t do it.
So that was my week. I am not being as diligent as I should be in the mindful eating department. I should be doing so much better at that. I know that if I was more mindful I would probably actually lose the weight I desire to lose. However, I am not making progress. I need to make it a priority, but I also need to motivate myself. ummm…. really problems.
