So…my grandpa died, (he knew the Lord, so we are glad this was goodbye until we see him again!) we took a cross country trip to attend his memorial service, drove 16 hours each way with 3 little kids, were in town for less than 24 hours and came home all within 4 days. I did the best I could the whole trip and packed tons of healthy snacks for the road and we ate SO good for being on a road trip. Seriously, I was so proud of our familyThen I started the clean up/laundry unpack fest while the Richard worked like a maniac for the next 3 days. Then one child got the stomach flu. Yeah. So, I have apparently reached my limit. Last night I threw caution and healthy eating to the wind, I did not work out at all yesterday and instead tried to clean and Basic G the entire house while keeping up with the kids/illness. I think my lowest point was when Richard arrived home after 16 hours or so I was sitting on the couch watching TV and eating mint M&M’s. Yes again. Those apparently were not the greatest purchase as I have fallen twice to them.
Anyways, getting back on the wagon. No excuses, stress, emotional eating, or anything else, just picking up the pieces of my last week of not so great eating and doing better.
Today was a pretty good day. We are running a little low on produce with the illnesses and missed grocery trip, but we still have 1 banana and a few pears and if everyone is healthy tomorrow, I will stop at the store. If everyone is not healthy, Richard will have to make a produce run. Using the last sweet potatoes and some frozen veggies/meat we had a delicious dinner of steak (grilled after marinating in olive oil/sea salt/pepper/garlic powder), baked sweet potato fries which the kids helped make, (recipe below,) and steamed edamame and broccoli.
