day 23 virgin diet

Posted: August 4, 2015 in Uncategorized

This morning I was WAY off schedule, since my daughter and her family spent the night so that they could leave here at 4:30 AM to get to the hospital for the birth of our grandson.  So I got up at 3:30 to make kale and quinoa for breakfast for my son-in-law, who is an avid lover of my healthy dishes, and then after they left, I went back to bed.  Being off work today and the rest of this week, I slept in until our granddaughter woke up and was ready for action.

(Non-diet related note:  the new grandson is ADORABLE – you’re stunned, right?!)

Was way off schedule again today, then.

Did get my early water in, and then had a shake for breakfast.

This week, I am testing gluten, which means 4 days of trying small portions of healthy foods with gluten, and then 3 days without, and all the while I am observing if my body reacts differently.

So lunch was a slice of whole-grain wheat bread with almond butter, and a big bowl of salad left over from yesterday.

And supper was this:

IMG_0889A tiny bit of shrimp, a tiny bit of quinoa, collard greens, sweet peppers, tomato, zucchini, onion, and garlic, all sauteed in olive oil, along with bowtie pasta.  And I finished off with a little handful of almonds.

I did note that I experienced a bit of compulsion to take an other helping of that dish with the bowtie pasta in it. (I did not take more.)  I NEVER feel that compulsion anymore.  Which would seem to indicate it’s maybe not only sugar that drives my compulsive overeating, eh?  But the toast at lunch did not have that effect.  Interesting.  Guess I’ll just keep collecting notes and see what this looks like at the end of the week.

Today is weighing day.  I am down 1.3 pounds again (same as last week – interesting, eh?)

Still more important than that is how good I continue to feel.  Staying tuned there.

    YAY!!! I think sometimes carbs fuel our bodies to want more, and more, and more. I believe they are sometimes more dangerous to our bodies than sugar. Keep up the good work!
