breakfast/lunch: bologna and cheese sandwich (3 slices cheese/bologna, mayo, lettuce, 2 slices whole grain bread) with progresso chicken and corn chowder soup
snack: about a cup of goldfish
dinner: grilled cheese with ham, about 10-15 tater tots.
also i had like 3 or 4 diet root beers throughout the course of the day. and only one bottle of water. i almost feel worse about the soda than i do the food. the thing i know i overdid was the sandwich - i didn't need 3 slices of each thing.
i'm still pleased i avoided the sugary stuff in the house (aspartame-ridden diet soda aside) - there is SO much of it. white chocolate peppermint m&ms, like 3 different kinds of cookies, candy canes, etc. my mom already told me what tonight's dessert will be (peppermint ice cream pie, with an oreo cookie crust) and THAT is going to be tough to avoid. peppermint flavored things are my favorite. i'm still on the fence about whether or not i'll have any.
my mom also already told me that my stocking** will be filled with candy. but that i can just leave at their house, i don't have to take it with me. or bring it into the office, or something.
anyway, on to today. the crappy thing is that i have to be at work until 2pm. but the good news is that i can at least have a morning/afternoon back on track.
breakfast was yet again, a gala apple and 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter (pb&co's mighty maple) on whole grain bread, and a cup of coffee with half and half.
i also tweeted this picture. just because i'm AT work on christmas eve, doesn't mean i'm doing any :D
** what traditions do you and your family have for what goes into your stockings? in my family, it's always been whatever you can find at CVS. basically that means toiletries, and candy. and for some reason we've also always gotten a piece of fruit at the bottom of our stockings. ...that none of us ever eat. but we get it every year. not sure why
