I could not get myself back on track 100% and was still eating too many nuts (volume’s bad, not the food) and other foods that I was seemingly intentionally not paying attention to (dressings, catsup) which contain more sugars than I can handle. Not knowing what I needed (I had not yet weighed myself) I remembered that since we’ve started this plan, if I plan a carb-day (a.k.a. binge day) in advance, I can satisfy my cravings that are probably more mental than physical. We had a Doberman club picnic coming up on Saturday, so I planned to go ahead and eat whatever foods that were there. unfortunately, I did not decide this until Friday, thus making the remaining two days of the week not-great food-plan wise. Plus, I took far fewer pictures than I thought, so I can’t even remember what I had, which makes me very disappointed in myself!
Thursday a.m., I had a protein shake with a few frozen strawberries, Lean Pro Matrix vanilla protein powder; water and 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt:
I don’t remember the rest of the day.
Friday, what I remember is two Applegate Hotdogs with american cheese, several handfuls of nuts, and I met a client for late lunch at the bay – the restaurant had a fantastic view. I drank two Stella beers and ate a few pieces of shrimp for the appetizer, and then had a large salad with grilled chicken that had some sort of sweet tasting dressing. Not too bad, but could have kept it down to one beer.
That evening my husband made a great chicken Marsala dish – happily, it tasted great and was on-plan. I’ll have to figure out what he did and post it.
Saturday 10.26 – Picnic Day
I did not eat breakfast, and first tried chips and guac that are homemade form a local mexican grocery. Tasted great.
Here’s a hotdog, greek salad, a little potato salad (not that good) and quinoa salad.
For dinner, we went ahead and got pizza and had a traditional pizza-and-beer night.
OK – time to get back on track.
