Do you ever keep running to the store, and every single time you return home to realize you forgot the one thing you kept running to the store to buy?
That is what keeps happening to me with these hot dogs. I spend a lot of time concocting fun, delicious meal ideas for you; but when I’m not cooking, I want something really fast and easy to make.
Unfortunately, I keep forgetting to buy my favorite all-beef hot dogs for quick meals.
Also, my apologies for combining posts this weekend, but I needed the day for some other projects (I write every day) so it’s easier if I put this weekend out as one post.
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

Saturday, September 22
I ate this:
Breakfast: Late breakfast of Egg Salad: eggs + mayonnaise + pickles + onion
Lunch: Skipped (late breakfast, early dinner)
Dinner: Pizza salad: lettuce + tomatoes + salami +pepperoni + sunflower seeds + onion + a little shredded cheese + some ranch + sliced olives + a bit of feta.
Snack: I had mixed nuts, and too many at that.
Exercise: None today. I let my hubby use the treadmill desk.
Notes: Even if you’re at a friend’s house, pre-proportion your snacks or you might overdo it, as I did.
Sunday, September 23
I ate this:
Breakfast: I slept through it
Dinner: Stuffed chicken breast (recipe coming)
Exercise: 2 hours at my treadmill desk at 1 mph.
Notes: It’s amazing how much clearer I think when I’m exercising while I work.
What I learned:
I need to pre-proportion snacks for events when I’m out.
I took a can of mixed nuts with me to game night last night. I did so well with my pizza salad, so I was sure I could do no wrong with a few mixed nuts, right?
Cue the Price is Right Fail Horn.
Instead of counting them out or stopping at a few, I am positive I had 2-3 servings at least (and possibly more). Hell, I probably ate 1/4 of the can. I probably also licked the outsides and was found rocking in the corner hugging the little empty can to my chest and murmuring, “My precioussss.”
I claim food amnesia– meaning I don’t always remember what I eat or how much–which is why I journal in the first place.
It’s like beer goggles only instead of waking up with a weirdo, you wake up in the morning and you say, “I can’t believe I ate all that.”
Own the brief walk of shame. Let it go and learn.
I know I did.
