NROL - Week 5 - Saturday

I am making, what I hope will be, a fabulous dinner of roasted pork loin and homemade coleslaw. I used Linda Sue's My Favorite Coleslaw recipe, but I used light mayonnaise, liquid Splenda, and added some red onion. It needs to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours but the first little taste of it was wonderful, and even my husband sounded like he was enjoying himself a little too much. He actually had a bowl a little while ago and said it was the best coleslaw he's ever had. Yay me!

8:35 AM - cottage cheese, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; eaten on couch; I was hungry, but too lazy to cook anything

10:05 AM - Cheerios w/ skim milk, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; I ate standing in the middle of the living room; it's so hard not to eat the whole damn box of cereal

1:20 PM - tilapia w/ mayo, mustard & onion, broccoli; eaten at table while reading; it didn't feel like enough food

2:30 PM - baby carrots, mozzarella string cheese; eaten at desk; is it possible to binge on vegetables? I was full but could not (or would not) stop eating those carrots. I feel guilty for eating so much but as far as overeating goes, carrots are a pretty darn good choice. Right? RIGHT???? Now I'm trying to rationalize eating all those carrots (almost 10 ounces).

4:35 PM - roasted pork sirloin, homemade coleslaw; eaten at table; this is the best meal I've made in a while. I loved the entire meal and really savored it. There's room in my day for seconds later!

6:40 PM - more dinner, eaten on the couch; I really wanted to not eat to keep my calories low, but I gave in to temptation

Kudos to you for cooking such a great meal! I'm excited if I find something to make that I like, but if the husband likes it too then that is 10 times better! Sounds as though it was a really great meal.

I too struggle with cereal! I guess that is why I tend to eat oatmeal everyday...? Plus I like the "warm fuzzy" feeling it gives me..LOL.

I'm bad about carrots as well...I tend to have to pick out a handful or 10 or whatever from the bag, lay them on the counter and then go about making dinner since that's when I usually snack on them. Otherwise I would eat the whole bag, too! I still think snacking/overeating them is better than a bag of chips! :)
