Leaving some behind

Day 9.  This day was kind of up and down.  It seemed a little harder to stay out of the sweets but the day went by fast.  We had poached eggs and hash browns for breakfast.  I grated my potatoes with a coarse cheese grater to make shredded hash browns instead of cubed hash browns.  I really enjoyed them that way.  I had some cherries with breakfast.  I didn't get hungry during church for the first time I can remember.  Usually I always get hungry during the third hour (we have church from 9am-12 noon).  But today I was not hungry at all and that was a nice relief.  Usually half way through church I'm starving and I can't focus on what I'm supposed to be doing or listening to.  So it was really nice to not be hungry and just enjoy church.  (Although today I was substituting for the teacher for the CTR 4 class (4 year olds turning 5) which is the same class that Lily is in, so there was an added challenge there.  Not sure how much you can relax teaching 4 year olds lol. 

Anyway, after church I ate some of my leftover sausage and sweet potato skillet with some dates and a few macadamia nuts.  I didn't finish my macadamia nuts or all of the food on my plate.  This is the first time in my life that I can remember willingly leaving food behind even when it tastes really good.  I have been doing much better leaving food behind on my plate, every so often I will overeat but then I adjust at the next meal and eat less because I'm just not hungry.  It is an interesting experience and I am loving it.  It is hard to stay out of the sweet things.  The kids had some m&ms today and I had to stay out of the big bag while giving them their allotted portion.  Also I made chocolate chip banana bread for Matt.  It was surprisingly easy to stay out of the banana bread.  I did have a nasty headache during half the day and I was very tired in the afternoon.  Tomorrow is day 10 and my birthday.  I'm excited to go to the aquarium with the kids.  I will take lots of pictures and post some.
