I tried to eat more...

...but it didn't work out like I had hoped.

Last night was one of the only nights I've had without the kids since my son was born. One of only a handful of times since I got pregnant with him (wedding night). So, this morning when there were no kids here, I layer in bed until almost nine. Heaven!

I rushed out the door to pick them up and by the time we got home it was 10:30 and I grabbed a quick Mandarin Orange (the biggest ones I've ever sen from Sam's Club) for breakfast.

I treated myself a little for lunch with some of the kiddos leftover Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with a large serving of broccoli.

This is a cup of Mac 'n Cheese and a cup of broccoli in a very large bowl - completely filling.

I also made sure to get an afternoon snack in, and had some baby carrots and a tablespoon of light ranch. I wasn't hungry, but I figured we had a while before Hubby got home for our delicious dinner of steak and corn.

I usually eat off of small plates but this is on a large dinner plate - 4 ounces of steak is a lot!

Yum! We grilled two flank steaks so I can have a ton of great salads. I was hooked on them when I was at the cabin. Something about the large filling salad with 4oz of steak and Italian dressing... Mmm...

I had planned to eat two ears of corn and some of the potatoes, but I seriously wasn't hungry. I've never had this problem before. I'm just going to keep aware of it, but I'm not going to worry much unless this keeps up and I consistently end up with 700-800 calorie days. I'm going to aim for fitting in even more fruits and veggies instead of a number.

  1. I think it is hard to maintain to consistent level of calories. Do your best not to slip into starvation mode, though. 1400 calorie minimum keeps you out of that mode that will have you gaining before you know it! That steak salad sounds yummy!
