Day 28 - The Plan day 10

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Yesterday I went to the markets and found stuff I hadn't been able to find before. Manchego cheese, fresh ginger! Finally :0 They had it tucked away under the artichokes and I had a fun time digging some out (ouch - artichokes have sharp bits!)

Meals for the day:

Breakfast - flax seed granola with blueberries and a splash of coconut milk, dandelion tea

Lunch - green beans and a small pork chop with apricot glaze

Snack - 1 oz of 72% dark chocolate, 1 oz salt free potato chips

Dinner - chopped salad and a bowl of carrot soup

I was a bit apprehensive of the potato chips - I don't eat those even when I don't watch what I eat but it was on the menu so i was game. I didn't really enjoy them but at least I know I didn't react to them.

I thought today was the weigh-in after 4 weeks of the challenge but I am a day or so out. Weigh-in is on day 30, so that would be tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

    Glad you found the cheese you wanted! I know it must be frustrating at times to not find stuff. In a way it makes you be more creative though doesn't it? Yay to no reaction from the chips!

    Ooh - hope the weigh-in goes well. Well done on keeping to the tight plan. I'm up and down, but funnily enough it seems to go down when I do more consistent exercise emoticon emoticon

    I finally got brave enough to try the ginger in one of my juices. I was afraid it would taste strong and bitter, but it didn't. I kind of cheated though. Our market sells organic ginger already chopped, in a tube. I wasn't sure how to chop it myself, or whether or not it needed peeling first. But at least I tried something new!
