The 17 Day Diet ... Day 11

Everyday when I wake up I try to have at least one positive thought to help me get through the day.  So far, so good.  Only 6 more days of this phase to go and then I get to add some different foods for the next 17 days!  I'm getting really tired of the same foods over and over, but G and I are making a valiant effort to try to cook them different each time.  Still, easy usually wins, and popping a chicken breast on the counter top grill seems to be the easiest at the moment.  Stir fry is very easy and yummy too.  I did have a small breakdown the other day, and soothed it with chai.  I know, bad for the diet, but it was so yummy!  I'll be so happy when chai can become a regular visitor.  Oh, and by the way, I did try a sugar-free chai.  Um ... not so good, but I might be able to deal with it every so often to help tame my chai cravings.

Before I sign off, kudos to my G.  We both survived "dollar night" at the ball park last night without cheating!  No beer, popcorn, or hotdogs for us.  But we learned a valuable lesson ... no matter where we go, pack food and water to take with us!  (A bottle of water at the ball park was $3.50! OMG!!) Having to see and smell all the food, by the 6th inning we were ready for 10 hotdogs and a box of buttery popcorn ... each!  LOL!

I'm off to eat my cabbage soup.  :-)
