Yesterday was back to the daily grind. The euphoria of the weekend had worn off. I did get to spend part of the day with my husband, though. That is always nice. I love him very much! Mondays and Tuesdays are his Saturdays and Sundays. We had a bunch of financial work to wade through though, so it wasn't pleasant. Then I went to my writing class and it wasn't as fun as normal and I was pretty frustrated by it. It's very hard not to eat when I'm frustrated. No matter how frustrated I am, eating gives me satisfaction, which is what we crave during frustrating times.
I was okay though. For breakfast, I had a 'bagel thin' with three strips of bacon and a little sharp cheddar on it, and a cup of hot herbal tea. For lunch I had some red beans and rice and a glass of water. I had some unjunked candy for a snack at school and a Fruit2o. For supper I just had some leftovers from Saturday's awesome feast to bring back the memory of the happy times of the weekend. 3.3 oz of pot roast, .5 cup corn and .5 cup of mashed potatoes, .25 c. of roasted carrots and a glass of water.
I spent the evening doing some homework, catching up with the kids after their school day and preparing beef and barley stew for my husband to freeze and take out on the road with him. As he tasted it, he said, "It needs a little salt..." That's when it occurred to me that I had not tasted it while I was preparing it. That's major for me. I taste the whole time I'm cooking. There is usually a stack of "tasting spoons" that are needing to go in the dishwasher when I'm done cooking.
AHHHHH!! The big news! To stay on track for my 100 lbs. in 300 days goal, I had to lose 3.5 lbs. for my first weigh in. I lost SIX! So I am ahead of schedule and VERY happy about it! Still no exercise. I HAVE to get that going.... *sigh*
Peace and love to all,
