Day 14 and 15 - The plan and a change of plan

Sunday, February 16, 2014

AS you may have seen in the last blog the plan was to go out for dinner with the kids ( date night) on Valentine's day.

My test was supposed to be the restaurant! Just before we were ready to leave for the restaurant my son came down with a fever and headache, so I whipped up dinner at home.

I took my son to the walk-in clinicon Sat morning and it turns out he has strep throat.
We will postpone our dates until he is well.

On Friday I tried Timbale for the first time!
This is before it went in the oven:

It smelled SOOOOOO good!
This is what it looked like when I took it out of the oven

That was Friday's lunch

on Sat morning I was down 0.8 lbs, down a total of 8 pounds in 15 days.

On Saturday with sitting in the walk in clinic for 2 hours my water intake was all over the place!
I had the pumpkin chia pudding for breakfast, then Left over Timbale for lunch with a salad on the side.

Potato chips ( 1oz) salt free for snack and I had a VERY LARGE caramel latte from Starbucks! ( yeah I know! I needed it!)

Had a couple too many pieces for Red Velvet CHOCOLATE and for dinner we had chicken and veggies.

This morning I was up around 0.1 pound.
Not unexpected. I had too much latte and chocolate!

Today is another friendly day! I am doing day 14. ( it is the 16th day I have been on The Plan)

Breakfast was the last of the pumpkin chia pudding.
Lunch was chopped salad and carrot soup!

I suppose the pics are getting rather repetitive! Sorry!

Since tomorrow is a holiday here in Canada I am going grocery shopping now to get another protein! NOT CHICKEN! Would like a break from it for a night I think!

My son is feeling much better today, back to his chatty self! Still headaches but he is ok.
Much improved from yesterday!

I have to say my biggest challenge is chugging the water first thing! I would rather go straight to my cup of coffee! LOL

I am hanging in there!

I am 2.5 pounds away from my first goal which is to get back into my healthy BMI range!

Thank you to all my spark friends for all your support and encouragement! YOU ROCK!

    Poor baby, I've had strep and it's awful - I remember I didn't even want to let myself yawn, it hurt my throat so much! Hope he gets better quickly.

    Glad to hear all is much better with your son. The Timbale dish looks really good! Before and after! Might have to try that.
    Keep up the great work. You will reach goal in no time! emoticon emoticon

    Your timbale looks sooo good! I'd love to have kale to try with mine but spinach or chard will have to do..
    Glad your son is doing so much better!
    Never mind the small gain - the day was all over the place and you can always test a small latte next time :)

    (I am in Canada too - southern Ontario)

    You are so close to your healthy BMI range. That is one of my goals too as I am considered obese where I am right now. emoticon
