Since I've gotten older, I think I've turned into a bit of a homebody. I like to spend time at home, especially after being at work all week.
The ELB had to work on Friday/Saturday at a volleyball tournament, so I was left to my own devices.
Friday night, I used the leftover brown rice/veggies and some of the roast beef to make a quick fried rice dish. Basically, I just heated it all up in a pan, scrambled an egg into it, and then added some soy sauce. I didn't get stuck, but it did fill me up pretty quick. I fell asleep on the couch at 7:45, and woke up at 10. Then fell asleep on the couch again at 12 and woke up at 2 a.m. Went to bed, and had to get the ELB up by 8 for him to head out. I had a migrain all day Saturday. I ordered Papa Johns for dinner for the ELB, and I had two slices of pizza and some of the cheese bread. He ate the rest over Friday/Saturday. Yay me!
On Saturday, I used the turkey burger I had cooked previously to make a turkey taco bowl. Turkey burger, 1/2 pack of taco seasoning, can of pinto beans (rinsed). Heated it all up together, and then topped with some pepper jack cheese and a dollop of Fage 0% greek yogurt. It made three 1-cup servings.
Sunday, we rode out to Lancaster to the outlet malls. I had to exchange a pair of shoes I had gotten last month because they were falling apart after two weeks of wear. We hit a few other stores, came home remarkably empty handed (did two even exchanges, I bought a gift for my party on Wednesday, and a box of cereal at Target). Dinner was turkey spaghetti made with the remainder of the cooked turkey burger and whole wheat pasta. I had one serving and the rest will be dinner tonight, and maybe dinner tomorrow night.
So, in my life before LapBand, I loved cereal. Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, to be exact. I have not had this in probably a year. The past few weeks, I have gone into the kitchen looking for cereal and milk--and of course, since the ELB doesn't eat cereal or milk--I don't have any cereal--although I do drink alot of Silk with my daily coffee.
I bought a box of my HBOA, but I'm almost afraid to try it. I'm learning what I can and cannot eat lately which gives me some food anxiety because I don't want to get stuck.
Is cereal a good idea or bad idea?
