I know I’ve written a post on this same subject before, but today I food planned so poorly. It started out okay…

Banana cut in half with peanut butter, flax seed and rolled oats


Sandwiched up and eaten in the car

Then for lunch (here’s where I really failed at the food-planning thing)

1 cup veggies (edamame + broccoli slaw) + cantaloupe

In hindsight, my lunch, weighing in at a whopping 218 calories was supposed to hold me over for 10 hours. Well…it didn’t. In fact, my lunch made me hungrier than I was before I ate it. Luckily, I found some microwave popcorn in the bottom of my bag and ate that, but still, I was about to gnaw my arm off all day. When I got home, I ate anything I could get my hands on.

Polished off both of these things.

Then a couple of dates + peanut butter (on top of an Eating Well magazine)

When Meeker walked in from work, I was staring into the pantry, just willing something to pop out and ask me to eat it. He saw the distress hunger in my eyes and suggested we go out to dinner to celebrate my favorite day of the week.

Done. A chicken fried rice order as big as my head from Mark Pi’s.

Plus a lettuce wrap.

As hungry as I was, I scarcely made a dent in the carby wonderfulness.

The after picture. I had enough leftovers to fill TWO to-go boxes.

I just finished packing my lunch for tomorrow (you can bet it included a box of leftover fried rice), and I crammed my lunchbox full of food, just to avoid the hunger I felt all day today.

Happy almost Friday!!
