I was on the road for a couple of days and was mostly OK except for the off-plan dessert that my hosts were so proud to give me :(. I still haven't figured out how to handle that situation (and it wasn't even something that I like). I find people get really annoyed with me when I try to be strict with my diet and they think I am just being freaky and overly controlling, since technically I am not "overweight."

That being said, I started crying in a dressing room the other day over the state of my body, so it's not like being in an arbitrary healthy weight range means I'm not overly FAT.

At least the dressing room debacle knocked some sense into me. I can't be as lackadaisical as I would like. My body is changing (being close to 40 comes with a lot of adjustments apparently) and putting on even 5 lbs makes a huge difference, which never used to be the case. I may never reach my "goal" and that's OK, but this extra 5 lbs from where I was maintaining a few months ago has to go. Time to buckle down and stop all the cheat-creep :)

Phase 2 - need to shop so it is mostly from the freezer
B - coffee with 2% milk. Smoothie with Greek yogurt/frozen local peaches/fresh cranberries/protein powder/splash of Torani sf vanilla/flax meal/milk as needed to make it liquid
L - "Golden autumn stew" from the freezer - I should post the recipe, it is so good! (acorn squash, carrots, white beans, tofu. I add turmeric and cinnamon and hot pepper to it). Cup of tea.
Ss - pear with almond butter. Tomato & mozzarella salad. Veggie pepperoni and cheese crisps
D - zucchini/quinoa "lasagna" from the freezer. Something with cabbage?
dessert - walnuts/almonds and 1 square of dark chocolate

11-03-2011, 08:28 PM
