Today has been a great day thus far. Scale was nice and showed me 212 today! So excited about that. That's 9 lbs off from my highest, 5 lbs down since I started my Primal journey.
My jeans went on without a hitch this morning. Straight from the dryer! No sucking in the gut to get them fastened, no dancing to get them up my legs, no readjusting as the day went on because they were digging uncomfortably. They fit perfectly (if not a little loosely). So happy!!
I love this program. Straight up, flat out. 4 weeks in and I'm not bored. I'm not feeling deprived. I can eat foods I used to have to avoid b/c they were high in calories or high in fat. I can eat foods I love (with the exception of cake and cookies, that is - oh how I wanted the soft crunch of a cookie in my mouth this morning... *drool*) *Shaking image out of head*
I'm very happy with my progress. It might be slow, but I'm thrilled just the same.
Now... if I could just get my kids to sleep through the night so I can get a decent night of restorative sleep!!
This weekend's plans will be a wrench for my primal journey. We're not doing anything tonight that I'm aware of, but tomorrow night we're going racing for the first time this season. It's going to be a cold cold night! The food selection is going to suck... to be honest, I'd probably be better off going to McDonald's for dinner. I don't want to betray my body, so I'll try to think of something that I can take up with us that will satisfy my need for food without going off plan. I won't have access to a microwave or stove or anything like that, so I have to find something portable and edible raw/cold. Maybe a BAS with some chicken... OH WAIT!! I could cook up some ribs in a crockpot! We have a generator so I'll have access to electricity... or pulled pork or something - the guys can have it in sandwiches and I'll just nosh on the meat. Oh, dolllar! I think I have a plan!!!
I think I want to have cream cheese pancakes for breakfast again tomorrow. With homemade whipped cream and strawberries. Yummo!! mmmm... makes my mouth water! lol Brad is probably so tired of them! (PS, Brad is my husband). Add some bacon and you've got a scrumptuous meal!!
Today I feel really good. Really happy and exhuberant... almost giddy. Like I'm hopped up on speed or something. It's like I'm taking Adderall again, but I'm not. I'm being productive at work. Got a few things done already today. I'm hoping I can be this productive at home tonight too b/c my house REALLY needs it. My kitchen is a wreck!
Dinner tonight is going to be Iowa Cut Pork Chops - super thick pork chops... oh yum! lol And grilled potatoes. Yes... I'm going to have white potatoes for dinner. And I'm not sure about the veggie, but I'll whip something up to go with all that. Probably broccoli. That seems to be our (my) favorite.
I hope everyone is having a good day. I'm exceptionally happy today and it feels great! Enjoy your Friday everyone! I'm half tempted to sneak out an hour or two early to get a head start on my house cleaning... we'll see.
