Good morning everyone! The lemon chicken last night turned out amazing. Next time I will definitely add more lemon though, as three tablespoons was not enough to really bring out the flavor.
I ate well for dinner (the lemon chicken and a salad), but followed it up with a huge bowl of ice cream. This ice cream is not low carb. I want it out of my house so I thought, "Well, I had some this morning, so I might as well just cheat and get rid of it." There's a little bit left but I'm going to try to stay away from it. It's not going to help me if I have more of it.
I'm having a hard time eating enough. I'm hungry, but not for anything in the house that I can have. We're going to be meal planning for next week tomorrow and I am going to try to get some better ideas for low carb lunches and snacks that sound appealing to me. I've been loving our dinners, but it's the rest of the meals that I struggle with.
Something that has helped me to drink more water is having a cute water bottle at work. It's pink with a grip and a straw. I don't know why, but I tend to drink more water out of it than I do a regular plastic water bottle. Weird, but I guess whatever works, huh?
We are going to an art gallery opening and then out for the evening with my co-workers/law school friends and one of the senior attorneys. It should be fun. I will stick to low carb drinks - vodka and lemon/lime or diet soda. I'm not going to deprive myself of alcohol right now, because when I go out it's a nice break from studying and I earn it.
I'm spending the next two days working on Evidence. Today is Presentation and Character. Wish me luck, as this is a difficult area of the MBE for me!
Have a happy Friday :)
