Today was rough. There was a lot going on at work, and when I walked into the offices of people eating pizza, I wanted to cry or die on the spot. Pizza is just one of those foods that makes you feel good. It’s easy and it fills you up. I love it. It’s one of my hardest foods to say no to, but I did it today.

When I got home from work, late mind you, I didnt want to cook. I looked at my little boy and the momentum to keep going kicked in. I want him to eat healthy too. So, in the spirit of having a stressful day, I made homemade macaroni and cheese, with a twist! I used whole wheat macaroni , reduced fat chseeses, and fat free milk to make it. It was great! Austin loved it too! Now I feel energized and excited that I made it through a stressful day without turning to food.
