I finished strong yesterday. I stayed up late -- until Midnight. I was really hungry by then. I had thoughts of going ahead and eating a little something since it was already tomorrow, or drinking some hot chocolate, but I didn't. I went on to bed. I had a little trouble sleeping because of restless legs at one point. Withdrawal symptom. But I had already taken about 1/3 of a pill of the stronger med earlier and it didn't last long, so I did okay.
I decided on an off-day today, as opposed to an off-meal. However, that is not a license to eat everything I can think of.
Breakfast is some oatmeal. However, not one of the huge bowls of oatmeal I was eating before I started. I actually measured it this time -- 1/2 cup dry. I ate it slowly and waited a little bit, but still felt a little hungry, so I made a scrambled egg. I can't remember the last time I made one scrambled egg. I always eat two.
I woke up with a lot of pain today. I don't know why because it had been improved the last couple of days. It is cold and rainy -- don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.
I'm home after being gone most of the rest of the day. My daughter and I ate lunch at Chipotle, where I had two tacos with soft corn tortillas. These tacos are fairly low calorie (something I used to eat when doing WW). I did have a few chips with some guacamole.
After that we went to get groceries, brought them home and put them away and then went to where my daughter is house/puppy sitting (which is my cousin's house) and watched a little TV before I went over my married daughter's home for a Super Bowl party. I think I ate pretty reasonably there. I had just a few chips with hot sauce and guacamole. Then I had some chicken, roasted potatoes, Brussels sprouts and a roll. Dessert was a small serving of apple cobbler and a small serving of this brownie thing (added up to the size of one dessert). That was it. I never got extremely full, and I felt like I had a good day. I don't feel like I ate so much I will have to spend all week making up for it.
My pain improved through the day, so that was good. It has actually been better the last 2-3 days. I guess losing 10 pounds has helped a little.
Now, I should get off to bed. I typically don't like to do things on Sunday night because my work weeks can be so long, but it was fun tonight, so I am good.
Have a good week!
