Well guys, life happened already. *SIGH* I promise I had every intention of making a fabulous and healthy meal tonight for dinner-marinated chicken, baked red potatoes, asparagus. But when you have a fussy baby, *SIGH* diarrhea going up baby's back, *SIGH* and food & bottle flown across the floor because of that fussy and diarrhea baby *SIGH*, you give up trying.
To rest my case, I did prep the potatoes, seasoned them, placed them on the prepared pan, and tempted to place them in the oven...but when you dump half of the 3 pounds of prepared potatoes on the oven door while trying to put them in the oven, you try not to curse and say "forget this! It's just not meant to be today...there's always tomorrow!" Which I intend on trying again tomorrow for two reasons: 1 - to not let the food that I bought with our own money (that my husband worked SO hard for) go to waste and 2 - to have triumph over those potatoes!
"You think you won potatoes, but think again, this Momma ain't givin' up that easily!!"
Needless to say, all of this led to pizza and broccoli bite take-out. It was good, it was easy, and it was satisfying. However, I can say that I can tell my body isn't used to that grease and stuff already, and it's only my second day of eating "healthy". So hopefully tomorrow will go as planned. But, at least the pizza had veggies on it and I chose broccoli bites over french fries...right?
The key is to NOT let myself fall back into my old habits of eating. It's okay to give yourself a treat every now and then, especially in desperate moments like tonight, but it's important to have the mindset of getting back on track the next day.
*Thanks to my Momma for the paying for the pizza and broccoli bites and for your help!!*
