So I clearly have nothing to do since I got back from travelling except blog... and eat...

I have to admit that I was sometimes jealous of some of you that don't work, work from home or stay at home with your kids. I'd read your blogs where you talk about eating scrambled egg whites for breakfast or grilled chicken salads for lunch and I barely had time to open a tin of tuna at work. I always thought how great it would be to have time to prepare meals like that instead of being in the office 12 hours a day.

So I can see the flip side of that now! I have too much time on my hands and I just want to eat to ease the boredom. I used to be so busy at work that I could go all day without having the time to eat, but now I have nothing but time on my hands to think about food. There are only so many cups of tea I can drink to keep myself from nibbling on all that chocolate I brought home from the US...

Luckily I am going back to get another fill in my lap band tomorrow, hopefully that will help keep me in line until I find something to keep my mind off food.


  1. I've been on both sides of the coin - and yeah, boredom drives us to the cupboard. I much prefer being out and about - less time to dwell on food - well, that's the theory. Unfortunately, I have a great deli down the road that I love to visit for lunch lol.

  2. Believe me, being at work was way easier for controlling food input and boredom eating...

    At home I have nothing but time to open the pantry and see what there is to nibble on!!

    I guess either way it comes down to choice....and that's what we're all learning :)

  3. HI! It's so nice to hear from you! I have honestly been lurking for the last year, so I know how well you've been doing... and how amazing your trip sounded.

    Now... no poutine! Haha... And yes... being unemployed and not completely stuffing your face involves a lot of distraction... a lot. Luckily.. that is what blogs are for! (and online t.v.)



Awww thanks so much for the comment!
