Attack of the 'Cereal' Killer

Ahhh, yesterday we had a serious problem in our house.  Very serious!  We had a serial killer there ... or, ummmm .... should I say "cereal" killer!

I worked a little longer than expected and just didn't plan out my meals throughout the day like I should have.  No protein in the morning, ate lunch too early...  The result was by the time I got home from work I was hungry - like NOW hungry.  I was also tired (partly the result of lack of sleep, partly due to an overly hot office that I can't adjust the temperature at).  I almost fell asleep at my desk in the afternoon.

When I came in the door the first thing I saw was a big ol' open box of this....


So in the hand went .. a few times. 



My plans for dinner was a Chicken Spinach Salad - pretty healthy right???  But after a bit of that sweet cereal I threw it all out the door and chose to have cereal instead.

To make it a little healthier I had it with non-fat milk and this...


That SOOO makes it better, doesn't it ☺(Not!)

And to make a bad choice even worse ... I had TWO bowls of this!  UGH!  Can you say binge?!  Half an hour later I felt just gross.  Too full!

After that the plan was to take my daughter to her dance class, then come home and run for an hour on the treadmill.  But when I came home I found Garry laying on living room floor, so I layed down beside him and fell asleep just around 8:30.  Apparently my body needed sleep, which I think is partially the reason for my indulgence.


Boy does this look comfy!

Today I have things much better planned out, and am not feeling nearly as tired.  Got a free evening and am definitely feeling the need to RUN!

It's so discouraging for me when I don't plan my meals. I also use sparkpeople and when I go back and look at my protein/fat/carb breakdown and I am way off from what it should be I feel disappointed:( I am always tempted to just stay in bed in the am or lay on the couch with my guy after work and skip the workouts...its a daily battle!!! Sometimes we just need to sleep:)

I've never tried that cereal. By the sounds of it, I should avoid it. :) Although, your choice could have been much worse. It could have been a bag of chips or something.

Tell your hubby he's wrong...firstly I'm South African and not Germany so I don't have biscuits and sweets in my home....not even while my children were little...I only bought for special occasions...LOL...
Quark is lovely...Weight Watchers makes divine quark that I have as pudding for only 1 point, the normal Quark is far too high in points.

YUM love a good bowl of cereal (or two). And if you feel right to sleep your poor body needed a rest!!

Have a great day today and just make sure you get that run in!

And ... did you manage to run today? So yesterday wasn't that good but as you said: you were tired and when we're tired we sometimes do things we didn't plan. But today is another day so make it a good one.
