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. :-)
