I am sooooooooo hungry tonight! It is bothering me enough that I am going to bed early... but not before I blog!
I have been feeling quite good so far on Medifast and enjoying my low carb meals. I went out to eat with my little girl yesterday and enjoyed a big fresh spinach salad topped with grilled chicken, blue cheese, sliced hard boiled egg, avocado, and tomatoes. It was delicious and didn't need any dressing. Then today I made a veggie lasagna (without noodles): steamed fresh green beans and canned Italian tomatoes layered with low fat ricotta and a little bit of mozzarella. It was good and filling but an hour later I felt hungry again. I'd been a little hungry all day and I had one Medifast meal left to eat plus a fat serving, so I poured some Parmesan puffs in a bowl and got myself a dill pickle spear and a tablespoon of cream cheese. Decadent, but on plan. And then I realized that not only was I hungry but I'd been craving salt all day, so I looked at the calendar: yep, PMS time! Now it makes sense.
I still want to eat, but am going to bed instead. My feet hurt pretty bad today. By the way, does anyone have a good recipe for carne asada? One of my kids wants me to make it and I want it to turn out yummy. I can have mine over a salad.
Looking forward to a more relaxing day tomorrow, at least in the morning. I'll be wrapping presents, sipping tea, and making crock pot chili and cornbread for dinner at my daughter's request. Happy holidays!
