Well, yesterday was turning out pretty well until dinner. I moved my protein to breakfast and had scrambled eggs with one yolk and 3 egg whites, and 1 piece of turkey bacon. I felt a lot more satisfied and normal after that breakfast. I was still a little hungry, but I wasn't starving and I wasn't weak or spaced out. I think it was a good move.
Of course, I had no idea what I was going to do when it came to dinner since I had already used up one protein of my two allowed, and the other one would be for lunch.
As it turned out, things took care of themselves. Because I forgot we had a pizza party at church, which my husband was in charge of so I couldn't skip it. I made a fruit salad so that I would have something there I could eat. But the fruit alone just didn't cut it. And my other options were pizza, pasta salad, pasta chili, jello salad, and 10 kids of desserts. So in the end, I just decided to forego my diet for the evening and just try to eat moderately. So I had one piece of pizza, a small portion of pasta salad, a bunch of fruit, a small handful of caramel corn, and one small peanut butter bar (hey, at least it had protein, right?)
I was very worried about what it would do to my weight, after having protein at breakfast AND a big deviation for dinner. But I'm delighted to say that I still lost 1/2 lb!
And I can't even explain to you how utterly delicious and filling those carbs were. Oh my gosh, the sugar and flour together in those bars....I could have eaten 15 of them! Dear carbs, how I love you so. Please forgive me with my temporary affair with protein. Love, Me.
