I don't really have an explanation for what I am doing today, except to say the following:
I have had a couple of foods dancing in my head for some time. Bugging me. I am going to have them today.
My eating has been all over the place this weekend... not horrible but definitely not low carb.
I am going back on Medifast tomorrow.
This week I had purchased all the ingredients to make a delicious, healthy, (but not low carb or Medifast-friendly) soup that my family has always loved. I haven't made it in years. I want to make it today and enjoy it without trying to fit it perfectly into the Lean & Green guidelines. I am, however, going to try and make it healthier and low carb and post the recipe later if that works out.
Today I am going to get out of the house, take some walks with the dog, get some chores done. I am going to drive out to this little coffee stand in the next town over that I have wanted to try for years now. They make their own cinnamon rolls. I am going to have a sugar free latte and a cinnamon roll this morning.
I am going to have a tuna sandwich with chips and a diet Coke for lunch. Tuna sandwiches go way, way back to my childhood. My mom packed them in almost every school lunch, with chips. I do eat tuna salad often (low fat, with lots of veggies mixed in) but haven't had a sandwich in awhile.
I am going to make this fantastic soup for dinner, with lots of veggies, red wine, lean turkey sausage and tortellini in it. I am going to try splitting the batch before I add the tortellini and do something different with mine.
I will probably have some yogurt, fruit, that kind of thing for snacks.
I am eating this stuff because I feel like it. I am not trying to justify it or say it is the healthiest thing or that it will cause me to lose weight. I am just using this blog to stay accountable and aware of what I am doing. You are probably going to see more mini posts with food and activity lists for the day. And weigh ins.
I got on the scale last night. I almost never weigh at night because I am always lighter in the morning, but the number was really not a shock. I am able to grab a handful of fat on my waist now... something I just noticed yesterday... so I knew that had to weigh something. I am going back to weighing daily and posting it here. Tomorrow I will weigh and post my food/activity. This is me going back to basics. That's the plan.
