Really today hasn't been so bad. Belle had a good day and my legs are swollen today, but feeling much better.
Breakfast: Ground Beef, Cauliflower and Olive Oil
A little evoo, some grass fed ground beef and cauliflower in a pan first thing in the morning. Seemed like a good plan at the time and actually it ended up being a great breakfast.
Dinner: Pork Chops, Spinach, Mushrooms, Pear and Olive Oil
More sauteed spinach with mushrooms this time in some evoo. Cooked two little pork chops with the veggies as well. Then I had a pear for dessert.
A great third meal for the day.
I rearranged some meals today since I didn't get to the grocery store yesterday. It is nice to be comfortable doing that now. I did make it to the store tonight and bought food to get me through the challenge - yeah, it's not that far off now.
One thing I will say - I am sort of used to cooking. It is becoming second nature. Of course, I do still need to work on being more creative, but I am a creature of habit and that has always been the case. Still, I am happy with the meals I am making and it seems to be working.
Still waiting for the aha moment. You know, that moment where I say - wow, I feel great. I do feel better. I feel like I have more constant energy. I know that even though I'm eating three meals a day, I am still eating better things and overall less than I was before. The food makes sense and it does help to learn portion control and more sensible amounts.
A week to go and it is still interesting. I am still learning about things and myself and while I will be making a few adjustments on the next go round I think I'm pretty committed to sticking with this way of eating.
