Day 6 Eat to Live and feeling good!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I ate almost exactly the same as for day 5 as I had no time at home for cooking and there was still chilli leftovers. I think I switched the lentil stew for more chilli at lunch because I had run out of the stew.
I’m feeling good -  a little stiff and achy as I had a massage last night and she worked hard on my back and hips. I’m feeling it today! Looking forward to the benefits I’ll feel tomorrow!
I went to visit my friends who had a baby boy 10 days ago and they are all doing great – you forget how small newborns are.  If I was younger… ha ha ha!!! 
I weighed myself this morning and I was down another 0.1kgs.  That brings my total loss in 6 days to:  2.4lbs.  Woo hoo!
Tomorrow it’s my week 1 weigh in… and I’m hoping I’ll lose a little more again.  We are away this weekend, camping at the ranch.  I plan on sticking with eating to live and keeping away from processed foods and oils. It will be hard. Mark will want to eat out somewhere.  I’m not sure how I will managed that – but we shall see.  I am not craving the coconut milk ice-cream I thought I would.  I’m not craving sweet things – or savory – or processed.  It’s good… I’m feeling good!
I’m just a little tired still. I still haven’t slept properly but maybe that’s because I’m worrying about our car – it has to go to the garage tomorrow and the brakes are not working properly. I hope it will not be an expensive day!  I also hope they are able to fix things quickly as we want to head off to the ranch as soon as Mark finishes work. I hope he gets off early!
OK.. I need to come up with eating out strategies just in case… Any ideas?

    Congrats on another good day!

    Any chance that you know where he might want to eat out at and you could look up the menu ahead of time (online maybe)? That would give you the opportunity to make an informed choice ahead of time, so there's no pressure.
