This weekend, I finally made an honest-to-goodness effort to get on track. I went grocery shopping and cooked up a storm yesterday. I have hard boiled eggs for the week, cold shrimp salads for dinner, and some tikka masala for lunch. The tikka masala was some overnight crock pot action that cooked while I snoozed last night, so my whole house smells and I catch a tempting whiff every time I move. I haven’t had any yet and I’m looking forward to lunch to heat it up.
Since I’ve switched from straight-up low-carb to WW, yogurt and fruit are back in my life. Yogurt with a sliced banana is one of my favorite foods, so having that to look forward to in the evening makes is significantly easier to stay on track during the day. I guess I’ll see whether that’s sustainable for me in the end.
So far, it seems to be working. I feel better and the scale is down a bit from last week when I had my minor freak out. I’m also eating more fish (mostly tilapia), and I heard somewhere once that fish is an anti-depressant. I heard that on John Tesh’s radio show and it was supposed to be fish in combination with beets, so I don’t know how much faith I should put in a filet to improve my mood. I am feeling better, and that’s what’s important.
I have a follow-up appointment for my ankle on Thursday and I’m hopeful that I’ll get the green light to start running again. I’m trying not to get too excited about it, lest I end up in a bad news spiral again, but the possibility is there.
Anyway, in the spirit of blog accountability, which is what this was supposed to be, I’m going to start posting my weight again, but only once a week. I’m trying to obsess less.
Current weight: 183.
