    Est calories for Wednesday; 1320
  • Had an enjoyable cheat meal last night, but made sure we ordered only enough for one satisfying meal so there'd be no leftovers... this way we don't make it a multi-day cheat. Yesterdays caloric total was 1700. I was actually expecting it to wind up much, much worse. In any case, it was a much needed bump to my calorie intake. I want to lose weight, but not at the expense of my metabolism!

    Did have a pre-breakfast oops though: 1/2 a hot chocolate. I'd been waiting outside the infiniti dealership in -30C. When they opened, they handed me a hot chocolate as a walked in (what service -- would've been nicer if they'd just opened the doors a little earlier!), and I chugged 1/2 of it before it clicked it was a no-no!
    B: half a fried egg, cheese, bacon sandwich on w/w bread. Diet Pepsi Lime
    Sn: V8
    L: Greek salad with chicken. Probably. There's also a chicken and white bean soup on in the caf, so I might get that instead if they haven't added noodles or other crap to it.
    S: Chicken breast stuffed with spinach, mozza, and ?sundried tomato. Green beans. I might grill some roma tomatoes too if I'm not too lazy.

    Weight today was 169.8! 160s! Without a "bathroom celebration" too

    I'm doing alright for cravings so far, at day 5 of phase 2. Even at last night's cheat, I wasn't just inhaling the calories the way I usually do. The real test will be today. After last night's refined carbs, and the hot chocolate earlier this morning, I'll have to be acutely aware of my hunger cues. I think the key is to not satisfy cravings triggered by sugar with more sugar to prevent the cycle from starting again.

    I've been really bad at taking my vitamin and omega-3 supplement. I don't know why taking two measly pills is so hard for me to do on a daily basis. I know I need them. I'm Canadian, so I'm probably already vitamin D deficient And without the grains for two weeks, and with my limited servings now, I'm definitely well on my way to a multi-vitamin deficiency.

    New discovery: coconut milk. my son can't have dairy and the store I stopped at was out of almond milk so I picked up coconut milk. It's sweetened, though I have seen unsweetened varieties (and I think they were just out of stock on that) but it is SO SOSOSOSOSOSOOOSOSOSOSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo super good.
