Breakfast: 1 1/2 slices leftover bacon, black tea with cream and stevia.
Snack: (about 3 pm) handful macadamia nuts, a strawberry, 2 macaroons (right before dinner)
Dinner: mince 'stew' with frozen veg and some raw veggies on the side.
The last of the bag of frozen veggies and my nose was totally stuffy afterwards... there was corn in the mix, do you think it could have been that? Or more likely to be the worcestershire sauce? Haven't had either for ages... I did have a reaction to the sulfites (I assume) in vinegar recently so maybe the vinegar in the sauce has sulfites in too...
It has been so stressful lately with all the family nonsense going on, but I am holding my own with no cravings or emotional eating. This is pretty miraculous I have to say! I was raving to a friend today about this lifestyle and how I can't believe I am not fighting off cravings all day long anymore. In the past it was only a matter of time until I broke and gave into the cravings and ended up gorging myself on chocolate and gaining even more fat back!
Kids and I went for a bike ride up to the lake where we played in the shallow water at the edge and found pretty rocks and got cold feet Snow melt water so pretty darn chilly. It is not a challenging ride by any stretch of the imagination (for me) but the kids get a great workout and fell asleep the moment their heads hit their pillows tonight. DD who has always had a hard time getting to sleep and then getting up in the mornings, is a changed child. She is going to sleep quickly at night and waking up about the same time as the rest of us (or even a little earlier!) VERY cool! DS (6 yrs old) was complaining this evening that he is always hungry and so I was explaining that he doesn't eat enough protein and that is what will keep his tummy from feeling so hungry. We'll see if he changes anything as a result - so cute.
So, as far as exercise, not much really, but did get moving and outside and relaxing away from the family stresses. Spent some time doing some light weeding and watering etc of the garden etc. We now have a spigot outside so I can water the plants without having to pull a hose all the way from the old well and then watch the water trickle out slower than you care to imagine. Takes a llooooong time to water the trees etc at that rate. Now I can water the yard, going to reseed the backyard soon, and can also clean out chicken waterers and other outside cleaning jobs so much easier.
