I had just one, and it was ok!

Daddy’s Day Delights!

I hope all the dads out there had a fantastically awesome Sunday with their children and families. Yesterday was fabulous in my parts. Q and I cooked up a nice breakfast for Big Man. He requested popovers to go with the strawberry blueberry jam my mom made from fresh Jersey blueberries.

I even broke my vow of wheat abstinence for one of these yummy popovers. But take one look at that picture….did ya look real good?!? Yeah, it tasted even better than it looks!!

I have really enjoyed eating #wheatfree. I am not stressing all the possible tiny amounts of wheat that may be in my soy sauce but I’m not eating breads and cakes and pastas and donuts and cookies and cakes and brownies.  I have a serious issue with these foods. I have no self-control or off switch with them.

Yesterday, I had control. I ate one popover. I wanted one and I ate just one. HOLY CRAP! I ate just one! JUST.ONE.

And then I ate no more wheat for the rest of the day!

There just might be something to this #wheatfree thing….

#wheatfree day 2

I woke up late. With a sore throat. I had slept like crap most of the night and only slept soundly after the husband went to work. I was sleeping tough and woke up suddenly at 10:20 – 10 minutes before my WW meeting. I grabbed some coffee and ran out of the house. Went to WW then ran errands. By the time I got home it was after noon and I was tired and not feeling so hot. I had a few hours before chaperoning duties and I did very little.

Needless to say, today’s eating was really out of wack.

coffee with splenda & non-dairy creamer (my usual)

2 hardboiled eggs

large orange

my coffee

sausage, pepper & onion omelet with homefries

raspberry lemonade yoplait light

homemade strawberry granita

chocolate amp, banana & peanut butter protein shake

 

*oh yeah, that picture above?!? Remember when I said chaperoning duties?? Well, tonight I chaperoned for the 8th grade dinner dance (only non 8th grade parents chaperone).  Towards the end, dessert was put out while I was out in the hallway on bathroom guard duty. One of the nice chaperone ladies brought me that lovely plate of sweets. I politely took the plate and ate the strawberry. After she went back inside, I held that plate until I could give the sweets away to some of the kids sitting on the bench, getting fresh air near the bathrooms.

 

I gotta say, I am pretty proud of myself right now! It is only day 2 but brownies are my weakness but I was able to look at it, hold it, and not eat that danged brownie.

#wheatfree day 1

*I hope these posts aren’t boring but I need to track what I eat and if I notice any changes in my body and my blog is where I document it all.
