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.
