The Hungry Housewife

My quest to quit dieting and start loving my body

Last night I made the kale chips recipe that I got from I forgot to take pictures though! They were SO delicious! My husband didn’t like them.. but I think I can get him to come around if I keep making them. I am just starting to get him to eat salad. The recipe was really easy and barely had any prep work. When they came out of the oven they were crispy and salty and so yummy! Make them! You won’t regret it!

For breakfast this morning I had cheerios with frozen berries mixed in and a bagel. Pretty standard breakfast.

Lunch was really good. I made a grilled mozarella and fat free feta cheese sandwich on sourdough. I paired that with an apple, but I only ate half of the apple. It was a little too ripe.

Dinner tonight will be easy. We have some frozen salmon that I want to do something with. I am planning on trying to make zucchini fries (recipe taken from celery in the city). They looked like they would be really yummy and a good finger food for my one year old.

Today I am really trying to quiet my inner negative voice. I am trying to look into the mirror and pick out a piece of me that I like. I really liked Kat’s post in her blog today. She wrote about her self image and confidence. One thing she wrote really resonated with me.

“When losing weight I always loathed where I was and couldn’t wait to get to where I wanted to be. It’s really nice to like where I’m at while still working at where I want to be.”

I would like to have that same mentality as I lose weight this time. My motivation for losing weight has also been not liking myself the way I am. I would like to learn how to like myself AND lose weight. That mindset is really what will make this time different for me.

      it was really good! we didn’t end up making the fries last night because we had to make an unplanned trip to the doctor. the baby got his fingers shut into a cupboard. poor little guy! I’m planning on making them for lunch today. I will let you know!
