Attempting to eat less than a million calories a day.

Tues, January 17th. Weight: hovers around 142 (was 132 this past summer), number of times poison ivy woke me last night: 3 (definitely improving!), number of times Riley said “No Daddy. I want mama” while getting ready: 4, number of times Riley said “No Mama. I want Daddy!” on the way to school: 6.

6:45 a.m. – Have sensible breakfast of Blueberry Bread, milk and 1/3 of a tangerine. Would have had a whole tangerine, but son was a bit demanding this morning. Will plan to get up 5 minutes earlier tomorrow to deal with early morning version of Riley.

8:35 a.m. – Sensible breakfast has worn off. Snicker bar left over from yesterday’s raid remains in my desk drawer…shouting my name.

9:15 a.m. – Eat rest of tangerine in attempt to silence Snicker bar.

9:25 a.m. – Does not work.

10:59 a.m. – Race to be the first one in line at the cafeteria.

11:15 a.m. – Have a smart lunch of chicken, vegetables and a not-so-smart-but-really-yummy egg roll. Was given an ice cream sandwich by my friend Jim. He must be reading my blog again. He wants me to fail.

1:30 p.m. – Got hungry thinking about what I had for lunch.

6:00 p.m. – Frito pie for supper. Picked lettuce from the garden for a salad, but decided to save it for later.

8:30 p.m. – Brushed my teeth in an effort to not eat anything. Seemed like a good plan at the time.

9:30 p.m. – The munchies hit. Dang. Could really use that salad now. But my teeth are so clean…. Will try to ignore hungry feeling.

10:00 p.m. – Dang.

  1. It is so tough trying to limit calories. I usually end up making little deals with myself that don’t always work…

    You aren’t kidding. The MINUTE you decide to stop eating so much crap, somebody is going to offer you a doughnut.
