I wasn't able to weigh myself this morning as my scale, which is digital, started saying 4.8 lbs before I even stepped on it. I was already a bit suspicious of it, so I'd ordered a new one from Amazon, it'll arrive either today or tomorrow. Anyway, as several of you have pointed out, it's not necessarily good to weigh oneself constantly.
I've got a whole list of things to buy from the supermarket -- now I have more of an idea what this diet is all about -- and I will go and buy them tomorrow. Unfortunately, I've had a bit of a work crisis today (plus on Tuesdays I am constantly driving my children from one activity to the next - speech therapy, gymnastics etc) so I haven't gone shopping yet. I am definitely eating too little during the day. Today, so far, I have only eaten a handful of walnuts, a block of cheddar cheese and some prosciutto. I know it's not good, and I promise not to do it again! Dinner looks good though, Charlie is cooking. We are planning asparagus with butter and eggs, roast pork and cabbage or broccoli.
Thinking today's eating pattern through as I write this, I have to confess it's fairly typical. I'm always a bit vampire-like, eating minimally during the day when I'm very busy, and then, feasting at night with a big meal with (hopefully) multiple courses and wine. Not that I am drinking wine, as of yesterday. I have given it up.
I am drinking lots of water, by my standards. This feels great. I normally don't have much interest in water, I just drink tea and coffee or, after 6pm beer or wine. It feels much more natural to want water instead of any of those.
This was yesterday's eating log (I know, not enough):
Breakfast - Bacon and eggs
Lunch - Walnuts
Snack - Carrots dipped in mayonnaise
Dinner - Steak with garlic and butter sauce, red cabbage cooked with (just a little bit of) apple, carrot salad with vinaigrette.
