Highlight: I was not starving all day long today. And the stuffed Poblanos for dinner were pretty good.
Lowlight: I CANNOT DRINK A GLASS OF WINE THE FRIDAY NIGHT MY VACAY STARTS! My planning sucked on this one.
Highlight: Not really jonesing for anything today. Definitely feeling less…mired down? Foggy? I don’t know the best description, but I feel less bleh.
Lowlight: Did not plan well this morning. My oldest daughter and I had an early morning so breakfast was a half a peach before we left, and a banana in the Costco parking lot. It wasn’t enough or ideal.
Tomorrow I’m road tripping, so I’m packing good snacks tonight to avoid the temptation of gas station Doritos.
Highlight: Friends and family time! Having snacks packed really helped me. Thanks to my friends Linda and Scott for a great dinner! Forgot to snap a pic though!
Lowlight: Not packing enough protein or fatty snacks. Fruit is only satisfying for a short time.
A great day though!
Highlight: My appetite seems to have evened out. I’m not panicky-hungry between meals. This picture doesn’t include a peach and the mixed fruit my friend Sara brought over (thanks for thinking about my high maintenance-ness!).
Lowlight: I needed meat. Not enough the last few days, so we made a double batch of Salisbury steak; it was a good idea, but really they just tasted like onion burgers. Sigh. Oh well. It’s meat.
Highlight: 1/3 of the way through this! My goal this week is to rely less on fruit and nuts. More veggies and good fats. The rules say no stepping on a scale (weight loss is not the point of the program) but I can say I’m buttoning shorts that haven’t seen buttoning in quite some time.
Lowlight: It’s a struggle to have enough clean protein ready to eat. Eggs are easy, but I am getting a bit weary of them.
