The best pictures of today don’t involve food. Well, there is one picture of me enjoying an apple at the WWII monument…
Other than that it was all about the sights! My brother, Michael, wasn’t able to visit in August when my mom and Matt came, so we did some of the same stuff. Like, the Lincoln Memorial…My bros and I…
And the view of the Washington Monument. I don’t know why, but they drained the reflection pool. It’s just not the same…I here is a Christmas Tree in front of the White House with the Washington Monument in the background.
And we enjoyed the gray, drizzly beauty of the day!
In addition to my apple, I packed carrots and a Larabar. I wasn’t hungry for them, but it had been hours since I ate so I had 2 big carrots and half the Larabar around 2-3ish?
My fam and I were super hangry on the way home so we called in a pizza order and swung by on the way home. I had 2 pieces of tomato and mushroom pizza. I am normally a “sweets” girl, but I’m a sucker for pizza every time
And made a BIG salad to fill me up the rest of the way
Now I am full, but we ate kinda early. I am going to stick to sipping tea for the rest of the night. I am committed to stopping my nighttime eating habit!
Intuitive Eating – I think I am over thinking it (ironic, no?). Since I have realized that I don’t know when I’m hungry, I am so worried about “Should I eat now?” “Am I hungry??” “Should I be hungry???” All of this worry is NOT helping the cause of getting me to I.E. Lame. Super lame, Monica.
So, I’m gonna try and chill out a bit – I know my signals: shaking & getting irritable (okay, that’s any time). I’m going to be sensitive to paying attention to those signs and my belly and not worry so much about it. I’m so worried about eating “weird” in front of the blog that I’m not just being me My eating habits might be a little off as I figure this out, but I’m going to be really true to my body while I figure this all out. Thanks for understanding.
Two years ago today Ben and I were in Costa Rica on a gorgeous holiday adventure. It was the best Thanksgiving ever! Stay tuned for a recap tomorrow
