Final verdict: 1 1/2 pounds gained over Christmas
I was at the same weight for two days, so I'm going to call that my new normal (I know, too soon to tell. I'm calling it anyhow.)
Very acceptable, I think. Now to begin my downward journey once again. This is a familiar hill. I've been on it before. Should that make it harder or easier?
Chica is not enjoying her fast. But I think that's just because she can't take warm baths, and meditate. She IS getting tummy rubs. :) I'm looking forward to my fast. I'm planning some easy-to-make favorites for my family to eat, so they won't be deprived, but I can be in and out of the kitchen quickly. Corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes, one day. Hash the next. Enchiladas from the freezer. I think they'll be happy. Especially since they can have my portions.
This was yesterday:
Up at 1:30 with Chica
Asleep again at 4:00
Up at 7:00
12:00 1 1/2C broccoli-cheddar soup
the last of that casserole
1 coco-choc with nuts
5:30 ham slices
fried zucchini with ranch
7:00 rote grutze with
cream, lots of cream!
Water: 9 glasses
Bed at 9:00
I did an hour walking with Littlest, then tempted my Honey on a walk to the store after dinner, since he had been sitting playing games most of the day.
The water was a little low. I could feel it, but kept finding it inconvenient to drink. need to be more careful today. I think part of the reason is I do not like ice cold water, I prefer tepid, and right now it is coming out of the tap ICY. I need to remember I can just add a splash of warm to it. Take action, girl. Don't be lazy!
Okay, the rest of the dishes! I have got to clear the decks so I can make those cauli-tots in some semblance of sanitary conditions.
