Things have been changing here around the casa and around my worklife. I’m so excited to share it all when some things get hammered out. For now though I can say that I’m happily working from home and focusing on a new project. Times are changing around here folks and I’m feeling awesome about it!
Working from home is proving to be amazing. I have had the freedom to eat fresh meals prepared here in my house and I don’t have the urge to go out and get something because what I brought doesn’t sound amazing. I’m a very emotional eater and I crave things on certain days or when things are proving to be difficult. If it’s a rough day I crave caffeine and fried foods. If it’s a good day and I’m feeling happy I crave vegetables and cheese. Chocolate is always craved – but that goes without saying, yes?
Today after Tommy & Alexis were off to work and school I made myself a homemade egg sandwich.
Whole wheat english muffin with an egg and a slice of sharp cheddar cheese on top. Then I cut up 1/2 a banana and ate that as well. Add a cup of coffee to this picture and that was my breakfast.
Tons of protein here and it kept me full until about 2pm when I found myself in the kitchen ready for my next meal.
I had made Tommy the leftover taco salad that we had the night before so I had some veggies cut and ready for my own lunch. I put them on a couple slices of bread and added some mustard and I was good to go. Add a few crackers (my favorite) and that was my lunch.
I was trying to find a place in the house to take a picture of my food so that it wasn’t shadowed by the overcast day that we were having today and I found the perfect light in the living room by our double doors. The dogs were following me around looking so sad and pathetic. They seriously thought I was going to give them some of my food! Crazy puppies!
Abbey sat patiently and waited for me to eat while I worked on the computer. She never gave up hope.
You’ll be happy to know that I gave her a tiny piece of bread for her persistence. Ranger had long ago given up and curled up in his chair. I snuck him a piece too – just a little one. Fair is fair.
Alexis was off at an internship meeting tonight so it was just Tommy & I for dinner. When we are alone on nights like this and we stay in for dinner I usually make spaghetti because it’s Alexis’ least favorite meal. I adore it so any night is a good night for spaghetti for me.
Since Ali isn’t home I’m going to take advantage and see if Tommy will watch a couple episodes of Breaking Bad with me. We are on Season 4 and only 3 episodes in. We love this show and hear that this season is the best. Are you a Breaking Bad fan?
Question: Are you the same way as I am about foods that you crave? Do you crave certain foods during different emotional situations?
