Today the Journey Begins…

So yeah, I just heard the forecast for the return to work tomorrow: snow from 7-11 a.m., then sleet and freezing rain till about 2 p.m. Uber ugly! Makes me want to play hookie for sure! Can’t though, too busy. (Someone take this can of nuts away from me please!)

I am now through day 15 of NO cheats, 100% on plan; I am very proud of myself! I have not had so much as one bit of the typical rice, pasta, bread, potatoes that used to be such a big part of my eating. I make stuff for my family and I have one of the kids come taste test it! One bite for me and I know I will cave. Not going there. I also have not had one single piece of chocolate from the work candy dish; last week there were boxes and boxes of cookies in the kitchen at work — I didn’t even look at them emoticon

I have discovered doctored up cottage cheese this weekend! Hate the stuff plain, but got some good ideas for doctoring it up. Favorite so far: cinnamon and a teeny bit of vanilla and a teeny bit of Truvia…so yummy it reminds me almost of rice pudding. Lots of other ideas to try, both sweet and savory. Most would make an excellent choice for breakfast, as I am tired of egg salad. I think I overloaded on egg salad these last 2 weeks.

So there’s my weekend report. Now off to bed and then nasty commute to work at 6:30.
