Can't stay too long to chat tonight, but as it's been a couple of days since my last entry...I thought that I'd better check in!! My b'day weekend has been so wonderful, I love all of the people in my life...they make it so special!
Food intake was surprisingly great this weekend. Those cheesecake "bites" that I made for dessert really limited consumption of "bad" things and anything else that I ordered out over the past couple of days has been beneficial or neutral...scallops, tofu, spinach--lots of veggies...the only thing that I have to go back and double-check is coconut milk (dangerous yummy in thai food!!).
The one thing that did give me a tummyache this morning (because it broke the fast) were the cookies that my mom sent along...but they are a childhood favorite and I figure that I'll just pay for it in the pool tomorrow. Also...signs of growing up I suppose...I went hiking all day up by Santa Barbera as a b'day treat and didn't over-indulge in "spirits." I only had a few glasses of red wine since Friday night...and I think (another item to check) that red wine is beneficial or neutral.
The thing that I do notice from eating out for several meals over the past couple of days is that I'm kind of puffy and just a touch lethargic. I'm going to guess that it's due to extra salt and whatever else goes into big kitchen cooking. The nice thing is that since following the diet so closely, I don't crave the "bad" foods so much, and am very satisfied with what I make for myself. This is good because in the past, I would have gone on an eating out binge for a week or so. I'm actually looking forward to being able to pack (read:control) all of my meals tomorrow and for the rest of the week.
Okay, so much for the "quickie," my battery's about to go on the computer so I'd better get this sent. Joyous Monday to y'all out there in cyber-land...with love in dear friends...take care
