Dining After Dark

Friday’s confession…

I ate dinner last night at 10:08 p.m. Yikes! And, to make matters worse it wasn’t just salad or something light without carbs, gasp!, I had seared scallops with broccoli and wheat penne pasta tossed in oil olive, garlic and Italian seasoning… and it was good as hell.

Everything was healthy, but it was 10:20 p.m. by the time I finished scoffing it down. Not very conducive to my Fifteen in Five plan. And this wasn’t the only night this week I ate so late. Um, it’s actually the fifth. In my defense the other days I did eat only a bowl of soup or something really light. Miles had football practice every night this week (when in doubt blame the kids) and while I fed the kids early, before practice, Husband and I ended up eating after practice, bath and bedtime.

I know better, really I do, but those scallops screamed “Wifey” so loud last night I couldn’t resist. How about you? Does your schedule, ahem, children’s schedule ever cause you to put your needs on the back burner, literally, where you find yourself in front of a plate way past prime time? Late night diners want to know…

Winks & Smiles,
Wifey

Wifey,
I'm glad you took the time to indulge a bit. I've been working on eating right and getting back in shape. I've lost 14lbs since April and I have ten more to go. But I wouldn't have been able to lose the weight if I hadn't given myself the leeway to cheat a it along the way. My wife and I hand shrimp cocktail and Reisling last Friday night at 11PM.

Thanks, Mocha Dad! Congratulations on your weight loss! And, you're right about cheating, if I don't have something chocolate every 24-48 hours strange things start to happen! Smiles!

Oh yeah! I blame my baby for all my bad eating habits! Eating on the run instead of sitting down for a proper meal; eating at odd times; not getting time to exercise - all of that. The things I sacrifice for my child . . . :)

Please! I would love to sit down to eat. I eat standing at the counter while making some food for hubby and monitoring baby. She's eating the leftovers from last night because I didn't make tonight's dinner in enough time. I also drink wine or beer and eat Goldfish crackers while I cook, so by the time dinner's ready,I'm not even hungry. Sigh..
