Late in The Day


This morning I just couldn’t get out of bed. I’m usually right out around 7 or 8 so it was weird to see 10:34 on my cell phone. What’s what about?

I didn’t end up eating breakfast until lunch time, and I imagine that rest of the day will follow suit. Who knows when I’ll get to dinner?

I made a big batch of fruit salad yesterday. Half for my sister-in-law who just had a baby, and the other half for us. I love fruit salad and I don’t know why I never think to make it ahead of time. It reminds me of Christmas. My mom always make fruit salad for Christmas morning to eat with sausage and cheddar biscuits.

I added a honey, lime zest, and poppy seeds to give it a little zing. It’s so good! Kiwis might be my favorite fruit. They’re up there with blueberries.

I also toasted a slice of whole wheat bread and topped with a couple of peppery scrambled eggs and cheddar. I always drink several glasses of water as soon as I wake up. Ice water is my coffee, I can’t do anything else without it.


Lunch was a Mediterranean inspired pasta salad. The only think I changed was fresh tomatoes instead of sun-dried and whole wheat pasta instead of white. Delicious and filling.

After work we did Jillian’s Shed and Shred. It was actually fun and really challenging.

After the workout I was starving so I had half a slice of pumpkin chocolate bread. This held me over nicely until dinner. It is also the best recipe I’ve tried!


I made a batch of sweet chili baked wings and ate one.

For the main dish I made kung pao chicken with lots of celery, and brown rice. My photo isn’t loading at the moment, but I will upload it tomorrow if it comes through from my phone.


For dessert I had another serving of fruit salad sprinkled with peanuts.

And there you have it, a day of eating intuitively. No overeating  or fighting the urge to eat too much. I ate what I wanted, when I was hungry.
