Darn this cabin!

Isn't it funny how certain environments trigger certain behaviors?

The cabin makes me want to eat! I'm not just talking about all my mom's delicious meals; I stare at the candy jar and my stomach growls, think about the ice cream in the freezer and my mouth salivates, and I have a very strong desire to fill my plate to the brim with all the yummy food!

The nice thing about being here is I get a chance to sleep in a little (8 instead of 6!) and I get all sorts of help with the kids. However, the disruption in routine makes this a little difficult...

2YO had breakfast without me. I did sneak in a small cup of cereal while I fed the baby.

Lunch was delicious! It was not, however, the most healthy choice! We made home-made calzones with ground beef, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella, and a little sauce. The one pictures is the best looking of the bunch so it had to be photographed. The one that 2YO and I split was a little smaller.

Dinner was another choice that I wouldn't necessarily make at home. We had chicken kiev (2YO and I split about 60/40), lots of broccoli and cauliflower, and mashed potatoes (2YO's fave, I only had about a tablespoon and a half).

Food-wise this doesn't sound like a good diet plan; added to the fact that I find myself eating a little more here than I did at home, I don't think this will be the best week. However, I'm trying to look on the bright side, and I realize I am being conscious of what and how much I eat and still consuming less than I normally would.

After all, this plan did not stem from trying to go on a strict diet. What I want is something I can stick with, and considering portion size and making sure I'm active is the main goal.
