So, following the celebrations for my parent's 60th, I returned to my original diet plan to get back on track. Now, I did not go hog wild at all. All I did was have a few glasses of wine, bites of some deserts, a piece of bread with olive oil...you know the drill. A bite here, a nibble there, a few sips of something else yummy, and the next thing you know, you are staring at a higher numbr on the scale.
NOT TO WORRY! I am happy to report that I dropped 3 pounds this week! I went back to egg whites, lean proteins, lots of vegetables like lettuce, cabbage, carrots, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, edamame, some avocado, small amounts of nuts, olive oil, one piece of fruit a day, decaf tea and coffee, I had small cheese crumbles on 2 salads, I had oatmeal one morning and I enjoyed adzuki beans. I did allow myself a sugar free popsicle (15 caloreis) at night as a sweet treat.
So, my body reacts well (aka drops weight) when I eat this way. I know it means no sugar, bread, crackers, chips, rice, pasta, potatos, very little dairy, low fat, etc but at least I know what I respond to!
So, I am going to do this for 2 more weeks, then take a birthday break and jump right back in! I am happy and excited. It feels goo to be on track! JOIN ME IF YOU WANT TO!
