Well, I'm over the halfway mark, but this day was the hardest one for me so far.
Today's supposed to be beef and tomatoes. I like beef. I like tomatoes. I don't eat beef that much; usually we opt for ground turkey, chicken, pork, fish... beef is a rare occasion. I like tomatoes in sauces and salads, and generally don't eat them on their own.
The beef and the tomatoes together.... yechhhhh.
Earlier I felt so sick. After doing beef and tomatoes for both breakfast and lunch, I was done. When I started getting hungry around dinner time, I cheated a little and made tomato soup with extra diced tomatoes instead. And.... I had a banana a little bit ago. That made me feel a little better, but I still don't feel good. I'm definitely not hungry. I definitely want other food.
Tomorrow is my gown fitting, and my mom is going with me. Afterward we are probably going out for lunch. Tomorrow is beef and vegetables, and I am totally going to get a steak salad somewhere. I am so looking forward to it.
You know what else I'm looking forward to? This being over. I'm trying to hold my willpower and get to Sunday. I am just so ready to go back to eating normal things - not necessarily what I'd call my normal, because I'm going to cut back on carbs and caffeine. I've really noticed a difference in my energy levels this week, for the better. It's just... I need more variety in life! Ugh. Meanwhile, A. is sitting next to me watching the NFL Draft, drinking a beer and eating salsa and chips. (The beer is not appealing. However, I want those chips in my mouth, now.)
To make myself feel a little better, I looked up diet memes:
There are so many, but I'll stop there. : )
Have a good weekend, everyone! See you on the other side of the GM Diet.
