I especially don't love the food chaos. In my family, as I have said before, dinner is always late, and there is food all around. Half the time I end up picking beforehand, and eating a regular meal on an already-full stomach, plus dessert. I wish I had better self-control. I saw this image on Facebook yesterday and it describes these occasions perfectly:
Yesterday I got outside with my nephew before dinner and then helped with some of the final cooking, so I "only" had a small handful of M&Ms before dinner. Still, at our 2:00 lunch, I managed to eat so much, or at least the wrong kinds of foods, so that I did not want anything for the rest of the day and my belly was uncomfortably bloated. I wonder if it was partly because I was crawling around on the floor with my nephew playing Legos, and my waistband was fitted enough to push into my stomach. when I think about what I ate, it was too much but not so much that it should have made me feel so terrible. Maybe the hardcore Spin workout threw my system off?
I am happy to have a quiet day to recover, eat normal amounts of food, and get some exercise.
