I love the tips you gave me, Beechnut. I always forget about Aldi's. As I get used to this plan it will be easier to go grocery shopping - especially since I'm eating mostly the same stuff every day. To most people, that sounds like a nightmare. But the truth is, I like eating the same stuff every day. I like not having to put a lot of thought into deciding what to eat. So this could work out.
The toughest part is figuring out how to cook everything. Once I get that down, I'll be much better off. Unfortunately, all of the meat I've cooked so far has been overcooked and awful. I'll get better, though. The other part of the equation is cleaning all the dishes. I eat a ton of different kinds of food, and I use about 5 different containers a day, just for the stuff I eat at work. Then all the dishes that I dirty from cooking and eating at home. I'll get it though. Maybe I'll get some glass dishes and start using my dishwasher.
The scale was nice to me this morning, which surprised me, because I feel like I ate so much food so late last night. I didn't start eating dinner until 7:30. And then I had my evening snack at 9:30 - which is so late to eat anything.
In any case, the new meal plan had a good result after just one day. I'm going to stick with it and see how it goes. Luckily, I haven't had to deal much with cravings. Though, someone did bring in cupcakes today and that has been quite tempting. The frosting just looks amazing. I was tempted to scoop just a little bit with my finger. But I abstained. And the moment was fleeting.
