Sun

-.4 lbs

I'm going to lunch with a friend. It will be a seafood restaurant with plenty of diet-friendly options.

B coffee, protein shake, tomato focaccia with Quest powder
L hamburger, no bun, green salad with butter lettuce, peas, light dressing
S Mandarin orange
D grilled chicken breast

Plans changed, no seafood restaurant. My friend eats one meal a day--she is not a dieter. She had the hamburger with bacon, avocado & cheese. I might like to have most of my day free of thinking about the next meal.

I ate over calories, though stayed low carb. It was a long exhausting day with my Mom. I usually eat a lot of prepared carbs on these days, so all in all I did well. Time to buckle down a little more so that I can see some tangible progress.

Sun
I posted my breakfast but it's gone. Hopefully it doesn't tun up in an email or on Facebook

What I posted was that my stomach feels significantly flattened, even though my wt loss isn't huge. Now thatI'm dressed, I notice my pants are looser. These are two big motivators that make me feel physically so much more comfortable.

B Shake & coffee, eggs with vegs and cheese from the hot bar at the store---nice treat
L Big green salad with julienne raw carrots, beets, slivered sweet red onion, chicken breast, dressing of coco aminos & evoo. I don't know why but I really love julienned vegs on my salad. They have just the right crunch and are easily digestible.
S Hot chocolate, coffee
D Broccoli cheese soup

Calories ~1300

This is about the time when I feel the effects of increasing daylight in at my latitude. I already feel a surge of optimism and energy. I skipped my SAD light this year to see what it felt like to 'go with the flow'. Some interesting insights were reached.

Thurs
B protein shake, coffee

This day went a little haywire. I dropped my vigilance and fell into a leftover bagel at work. After that, I felt obsessed with food and ate a lot more low carb things than I would normally have done. I thought about self-correcting after the bagel and then made a conscious choice to relax my self-discipline for the evening.

Sat
weight back down -.4 below lowest
This is a good pace of loss, not so drastic, but I am impatient to get my shape back.
Today's challenge will be going out to dinner.

B protein shake, coffee
S tomato focaccia
L salad, vegs, chicken, evoo/Bragg's coco aminos dressing
S egg white omelet with broccoli
D (at restaurant) steak, spinach with light sauce, lettuce salad/croutons/vinaigrette, glass of white wine.

I ate well today and did not feel deprived. I'm glad we ate at a restaurant with reasonable portions and no bread on the table. I asked them to omit the starchy vegs and cream sauce. I don't feel stuffed, just very satisfied.

Happy with this whoosh, especially after an enjoyable dinner out. Pat on the back to me for not eating after dinner.
