I slept in a little this morning and then wanted something a little different for breakfast today.  The grilled cheese last night tasted so good that I decided I would make a grilled egg and cheese sandwich with paleo bread for breakfast.  It was yummy and something different.

I was actually down over a pound this morning.  I first weighed after my month-long cleanse and then 3 days of overdoing after "breaking" the cleanse before getting down to business.  I am sure my body was still bloated with extra food that day, but I am down over 4 pounds since that day.  But I am down over a pound from what I have been weighing fairly consistently the last couple of weeks.  I'm just glad it moved.

I need to keep with the efforts to thwart water retention, try to be more active, and just keep on doing what I have been doing.

Right now, I need to go clean up the mess I made in the kitchen.  More later.


It's been kind of a busy day, but I don't feel like I have gotten that much done.  I did get up and clean the kitchen and worked some on putting my bedroom in order.  More to do on that.  Then I had to take my dog to the groomer.  Got home and did kind of this and that for a bit.  I ate a serving of pistachios and drank some water and did some more picking up.

I have also been reading on a book I am about finished with, off and on during the day.  I sit down and read when I need to get off my feet.  I also decided on things I wanted to cook for this week and made a grocery list.  I had to go back to the groomer and pick up my dog.  Then I went and bought the groceries I needed to make the food I had decided on.  When I got out of the store, it was time to go pick up my daughter's dog from doggy daycare.  I got home and felt kind of done for a bit, but remembered I had some things that needed to be brought in, so took the wagon to the car to bring all the groceries in, in one load.

I was quite thirsty after all this and got me some water and a chunk of watermelon.  I never had a real lunch and was feeling hungry.  I had decided on another grilled cheese sandwich with paleo bread when I remembered the tortilla chips that were left from the other day that my daughter had left.   Yep, I ate some tortilla chips and guacamole.  The one good thing about that was, there was less than half of a small bag left and I was eating on them, fully intending to finish the bag, when I realized there was no desire for them anymore and realizing I would be better off just to stop.  So I did.  I was full.  At least that's something.  Not a great thing that happened, but at least I listened to my "hunger" and stopped, instead of compulsively finishing what was there.

I still have not done any cooking.  Tomorrow is going to be a pretty busy day, although a fun one.  I'm wishing I had another to get more things done.  I should at least get the whole chicken in to bake, which is going to be used for two different recipes -- some low carb gumbo and some low carb chicken tortilla soup.

That's all for today.  This was my first "getting off the track" since I started this leg of my journey.  Now I just need to get back on and keep going.
