Meals-Made-at-Home March: Progress Report #4

Yesterday, I didn’t just slip on my challenge. I outright fell.

A culmination of events took place to cause this to happen.

The first event was Friday night my husband’s flight was delayed. So he didn’t get in until 11:45pm. Which meant, I his ride home from the airport, did not arrive home with husband in tow until around 12:30am.

This caused the second event which was that I didn’t get up until 8:30am, a later than typical waking time for me. I did yoga at home and then instead of having breakfast, I took a shower because our water was going to be off from 10am until 2pm due to some sort of building plumbing issue. Which meant I didn’t eat breakfast until around 9:45am or so. And I fixed a big breakfast of sausage, eggs and toast.

The third event was I had an appointment to get my hair cut and dyed at 12:45pm. But since it was a bright, sunny spring day, I knew the area where my salon is would be crazy. So I left the house at noon. Since I only ate a huge breakfast 2 hours prior no lunch was consumed. I did however, pack some snacks in my purse.

After all my hair cutting and dying, it was 3p. I could have gone home to eat however, my husband was with me and he wanted to go to the Amoeba Records to sell some old DVDs we had. I was getting a little hungry at this point, but thought my snacks could hold me. However, my husband was hungry.

The fourth event¬† was my husband said he wanted to grab some food at a hole in the wall BBQ place, called Huston’s near the Amoeba, also in our old neighborhood. This BBQ place has been around since 1944. And is A-MAZING. And I haven’t eaten there in a year or so. I just don’t have the occasion. I tried to reason with myself over why I could hold out and not have any BBQ this time around. However, my hunger and nostalgia got the best of me.

Though I would like to say I felt guilty as I bit into my pork BBQ sandwich.¬† I didn’t. It was pure deliciousness. I have a little regret that I only made it 13 days before I totally folded and ate a whole meal out.

This does not mean the challenge is over! I am picking myself up and going to keep trying the rest of the month to do better.
