So, day 1 went well. I've decided I'm not going to weigh myself until the 21 days are over. I did get a baseline wt. I ended the day and finished off my calories with a couple TBs of almond butter. Its a bit bland, but I'm getting used to it. Peanut butter has a much fuller flavor - but could be because they add sugar, mollases and salt. When I got the jar of almond butter all the oils had separated and were sitting on top so I emptied the jar into a bowl so I could stir it all back together. I added about a 1/4 cup of honey, maybe less, I didn't measure. It bumped up the flavor just enough to make it palitable. So, if honey counts as sugar then I'm not 100% sugar free on my 21 day challenge. But, what can that minute amount of honey do to derail all the other good? I mean, its 1/4 cup added to 2 cups of almond butter --- and I eat 2 TBs a day. Its not enough to even think about.
I'm trying to gear up to start my walk - but there is such a chill in the air this morning! I'm wondering if a light jacket is in order? Yesterday I waited until 11 am to start out and I wore a long sleeved light tee, by the time I was done the sun was high enough to make me have to push my sleeves up above my elbows! I'll have to step out and see how chilly the air truly is this morning.
Hubby is leaving for his annual guy boat trip in the morning. Sad day.......... I love that he takes this trip every year - but I miss him terribly while he's gone. I made a big bowl of mango chutney for them - its SO good! Just chop up cucumber, onion, cilantro, and mango. Add a little salt and pepper. Its yummy! I did put in a splash of lime juice in this batch. Not they really need my contribution....... They eat like KINGS on this yearly trip! I heard them mention things like Lobster, and Sword Fish the other day! They spend nearly as much on food as they do for fuel for the the truck and the boat! But - its their thing and they all love it! They've been doing this for about 8 years now. They always go north, the first year to the Columbia, then every year they've ventured a little further north. Last year they went up to Canada to Princess Louisa island or passage or something. This year they've dialed back the compass to just the Pudget Sound near and around Discovery Bay. I think they've decided its not the destination but the company that is the most important! Gotta love that!
I'm skipping breakfast until after I walk............ better get this body in motion!
