Day 5- Lose the Belly

Friday, May 06, 2016

Today's big challenge was a potluck salad dinner at church. I had oatmeal with fruit and almonds for breakfast, and just a grilled chicken breast for lunch, knowing that I would be faced with a lot of calorie-laden bowls of pasta and who knows what tonight. I ate pretty moderately and skipped the bread & dessert, except for one dark chocolate truffle. Tracking? Pure guesswork! But I did my best guessing, and seem to have come out pretty well over the course of a day, so I'm claiming victory!

Tomorrow we celebrate Mother's Day with my family, and the men are cooking. It's always a lot of fun! I am going to take a day off from the tracking and just enjoy the day with some special treats, but nothing too over the top.

    Those pot lucks can be challenging because everything looks so good - but it sounds like to managed really well. How nice for you to have a day off from cooking, that sounds like a win to me! We'll be driving all day tomorrow. I don't know if I'll be able to track what I eat. We're bringing crackers & cheese & meats to eat in the car at lunch time - better than stopping for fast food. I won't get much exercise either - just walking around at the rest stops with Daisy. But I plan to make it up when we've arrived in Galveston! Walking on the beach sounds wonderful to me.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Good for you. You need to take time for yourself occasionally especially on a special occasion and just enjoy your meal. You're doing great just getting the men in the kitchen. Sounds like fun. Afterwards...just Keep on Sparking.
