Well, I did awesome on Wednesday, but yesterday I decided to have Pizza with the guys for dinner. I don't feel bad about it though - Under the "skinny rules", you are allowed one cheat meal a week. I think I stay a little more sane if I let myself have one planned cheat meal a week. It is easier to say, "I can pass up on that doughnut, bowl of cereal, etc now because on this day I will be having this chosen meal."
Today at work we are having a food day, which is hard because the team I work on is filled with talented cooks. There are mini Boston creme pie muffins, chocolate orange slices sprinkled with sea salt, hot cheesy dips, bagels, a bundt cake, a veggie pizza and there are only about a quarter of the people who are participating here. There is going to be a ridiculous amount of food. Yummy, salty, sweet, carby fatty delicious food. I brought 2 bags of cutup veggies. I had breakfast at home, I have a lunch packed, I have coffee, water, electolytes and a plate full of veggies at my desk. I am set. I brought my favorite raw veggies- raw asparagus, pea pods and mini bell peppers.
Tomorrow, my parents and I are going to a sheep and wool festival together and then out to lunch for Mother's Day. I plan to get up early, do some yoga, have some eggs, ezekiel bread and avocado. After the festival, we will be going to a greek restaraunt. I looked ahead, and they have chicken skewers with vegetables, so I know what I will be having. There will be more salt and oil probably, but otherwise, pretty good. Better than falafel and pita bread or pastistso anyway.
Haven't lost much weight this week so far, but given the 7lbs last week, I knew this week would be light. A 1 or 2 lb weight loss this week would be just fine with me. Looking forward to our final week. The third week Bob wants participants to have no fruit at all. I am not going to do that. I will still have fruit in the morning.
I probably will not post this weekend. My goals for next week are to incorporate more exercise, to get more sleep, and to continue planning and preparing meals.
