TOO MUCH Tuesday.

I'm addicted to alliteration.

Too much= too much EATING. All was well until my after dinner sweet tooth hit. Then I was out of control. But first...

Breakfast was oatmeal with dark chocolate dreams.
Surprisingly, I think I would have liked this more without the chocolateyness. Never thought I'd say that. I think I'll put honey pb in my oats later this week.

Lunch was a collection of goodies, as always.
I had some cracked pepper turkey on a pumpkin seed cheddar flatbread, a thin with Asia jam and cheddar, and broccoli and garlic hummus. All was delicious. However, my cheddar is just not sharp enough and gets lost when it's on a sammy so I took it off and ate it separately. I think my cheddar is on it's way out :(

Dinner was a frozen broccoli and cheese sauce mix.
I added some shrimp and Dinosaur bbq cajun seasoning and turned it into a fantastic meal. I will definitely be making this again!

Half of an Arnold thin with some almond butter and a sprinkle of Ovaltine for a touch of chocolate. I took that bite to put an artsy spin on the pic...not because I couldn't wait until after the picture to eat it, ha :)

And a Kashi blackberry graham bar.

Why couldn't I have just stopped there? All of a sudden I started craving every sweet thing in my kitchen. I took the "if you're hungry, eat" theory and ran with it. No pictures, but some highlights were caramel popcorn, honey peanut butter, Newman's Own Organics espresso chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate, and the list goes on and on. I didn't stop until my stomach hurt. Not proud of this. I'm trying to chalk it up to a moment of weakness, and get over it, but that's easier said than done!


  1. ahh im sorry girl! sometimes we have have those weak moments. i know you will bounce back soon! no biggie!

  2. Sometimes cravings can get stronger if you don't let yourself eat enough on a regular basis. Make sure your meals contain a good healthy variety.

    And 1 evening of bits and bites is nothing to worry about!!! Happens to everyone :o)

  3. you're so funny and SO MUCH LIKE ME!!! I get the after dinner cravings for sugar too- I just bought Chocolate Cheerios - they're only 100 calories for a cup (7 grams of sugar but...) and they are DEE-Licous!!! - Also throw some chocolate or vanilla flavored whey protein powder on your oatmeal in the morning. It's a good boost of protein and tastes good - I just gorged myself on an apple and wads of Better-N-Peanut Butter - Have a good night!

  4. I definitely get the after dinner cravings, too. I've caught myself eating honey out of the bottle when we didn't have any other forms of sugar....can you say major sweet tooth?! Happy hump day!!
