So yesterday, Mother's Day, I think I did ok. My day started out with going to an annual Boy Scout Mother's Day pancake breakfast. I had drank my hot lemon water before going. I am doing the 17 day diet and hot lemon water is one of its "things". I filled my water bottle before going too. When I got there, my boys were serving at the same table and took my order. I asked for eggs (scrambled was all that is offered) and fruit.
I passed on the ham (I don't eat ham). I also passed on the pancakes
and bagels w/ cream cheese.
Lunch was a huge salad and turkey chili. Afternoon snack I had kefir smoothie.
Then came dinner. We went to my brother in laws/sister in laws. They had spinach/mayo/watercress dip (Knorr) with bread. They had veggies with 2 other types of dip. And they had wheat thins. I ate one snap pea and one carrot. I drank water the whole night. As my niece and daughter were shucking the corn, one kernel broke about 3/4 the way down. I ate the 1/4 left raw. (There is no carbs during the first 17 days and I was on day 8). For dinner, they served corn with margarine, salad with feta on the side, dinner rolls, and chicken. I ate the salad (with dressing but no feta). I ate a thigh, minus the skin and 2 legs also minus the skin.
I skipped the feta, bread, margarine and corn.
Then there was dessert. They had strawberries with whipped cream, a dark double chocolate cake from Costco and 2 kinds of ice cream. I decided it was Mother's day and I had a very small piece of cake, a few strawberries with whipped cream
and less then half a scoop of both types of ice cream.
Overall, I feel I did pretty good yesterday.
Although I "cheated", I also feel this is a lifestyle change and if I skip everything, I will binge later! What do you think?
