I always knew I would be a working mom. Not just because of finances but because I wanted to. It didn’t make sense to me to spend four years in school, rack up student loan debt and slowly work toward my career goals only to give it up when I had a baby.
Even still, it didn’t make yesterday any easier, and it was definitely reflected in my eats. I ate for comfort, and comfort equals carbs. I know it’s not good to eat your emotions but I am not going to beat myself up over it. I acknowledged it. I controlled it. I got back on track.
So onto the food …
Everything bagel with reduced-fat veggie cream cheese
Decaf coffee and munchkin … times two.
Lean Cuisine … at my desk. Awesome, I know. I don’t like to eat these things but I have a really short week and it didn’t make sense to prepare a dish that I could eat all week.
1 ounce mixed nuts
Apple … yeah, I sort of ate my afternoon snacks with my lunch instead of my soup (see below).
1 cup soup
Ugly @ss carrots and Wheat Thins (unpictured)
Cuban Braised Beef with rice. I seriously will make any recipe that calls for cilantro and avocado.
Blackberry Cabernet sorbet. Mark picked this up from Fresh Market last week (along with a dozen red roses :) ), and it is ahhmazing.
