Plant Strong Dinner 20130222
(UPDATE: left almost all the the cabbage and mushrooms, the rest I managed to eat. I was really hungry tonight because I forgot my breakfast this morning and had to rely on what I had in my lunch sack. I had a few nuts and some milk. LOL, I had the milk but not the cereal. This sounds weird, but I eat at work while I read emails and plan my day. )
I started eating Plant Strong about 3 weeks ago on a Sunday, or Feb 3rd. As of this morning I have lost 7+ pounds. I haven't stuck to the guidelines 100% every day but I am trying. Its not hard to stay in the guidelines. My only problem has been giving up the yogurt and eggs. And I found out that Qdoba's food has oil in almost everything and they have been my go to place for eating out at lunch. Bob Evans has been great, they have a veggie platter, so I get a baked potato, broccoli, fruit and a salad and that is plenty. I am going to have to investigate some better foods to eat out.
Today I came home after work instead of going to the Y like normal Friday nights. I love the spin class then a good swim. But I had a doctor appointment after work and he informed me I am sicker then I believed. He gave me a steroid shot to stifle a respiratory infection I am trying to get. Then told me if I am not better tomorrow to fill the Prednisone script he gave me and take that for 9 days. By the time I left I was so worn out I figured I best not swim with a needle stick. Not much of an excuse but it worked at the moment and I am glad I did because I am really tired now.
I am going to go find something on the TV or Netflix and go to sleep early.
