A quick trip across town with my husband and Aunt turned out to be longer than expected. After we finished piddling here and there, we made a stop at the grocery store and my husband, who just got back from a month offshore, wanted some snack foods. As soon as he grabbed Pringles, I could feel tension rise in me. My stomach was rumbling. Then he grabbed a couple bags of Lays. Then he wanted Coke. I wasn't upset because he can eat those things and I am trying not to at this time, I was irritable because I wanted to get home and make my meal, not dawdle about the grocery store! LOL Poor hubs, I even snapped at him in the car on the way home.
Anyway, by the time we got home, I was flat out "hangry"! The meal today was lasagna. So everyone could eat together, I made it an early dinner for all. After my noodles boiled, and my sauce was ready, I got even more irritable because, well, you know, sauce smells outstanding! I painstakingly whipped up the pan of lasagna and threw it in the oven. Growing more irritable as the 26th hour approached (my daily fasts are 23 hours), I thought to myself, "What can I do?"
In my hungry state, it escaped me that OMAD isn't do or die. There is no rule that you can't expand your window, so that is what I did. I made a smoothie and then a cup of Chobani yogurt with peanut butter. Hallejaeffinluah! Both were factored into my meal and calories for the day, so not only was my tummy happy, but those tided me over until dinner an hour later, and I didn't succumb to a binge. :-)
I figure that surely there must be others who have days like this and that it would be nice to see how they've handled them. :-)
