This week I’ve been dodging food temptations like Keanu was dodging bullets in The Matrix!
There has been not one, but two, family birthdays (my girlfriend’s and mother’s), my employer celebrated 70 years as a company, and there has been a local festival thingy going on all weekend.
I would be lying if I said I haven’t been tempted, but I navigated quite smoothly through it all I must say. I gave an heads up well in advance that I would be preparing my own food for the birthday celebrations, took a piece of cake at work to avoid the questions…but then gave it to my colleague (who of course didn’t mind the extra piece), and for the festival….well I just decided to not let any temptation catch my attention.
(Besides…over my dead body I will restart the program after 20+ days! No way, it just ain’t gonna happen!…and I really can’t think of a single thing that is THAT good it would be worth it.)
I’ve been feeling quite good in general this week, not tiger-blood-good, but….good.
I still sleep like a baby, and there’s no food boredom in sight yet.
I’ve had a couple of days where I didn’t feel like cooking, but frozen leftovers from a few crock-pot dishes made that a non problem.
Speaking of food, here’s some of what I’ve been eating this week:
Smoked salmon salad with eggs, olives, almonds, EVOO, and horseradish.
Not much more to say really, so that’ll be it for this week…
