DAY ONE (GETTING BACK ON TRACK) . . . wasn’t too bad!

Today I have decided to try to start to get back into the swing of things. I am pleased that I didn’t wait until “Monday” as I usually do, so that is a step in the right direction 🙂 Now the day wasn’t too bad except I got a little snooty with my husband and am feeling guilty now, but can’t rectify it as he is at work, so I will just have to wait until 11:30 when he gets home.

I did well eating though. I had made a new bread yesterday using chia seeds that I read were great to eat, so I had 2 very small pieces with meat, an egg and sausage, rapine, and then I was starving by 8:30 and gave in to a caesar salad which never tasted better, OMGsh it was divine. I now see why the Europeans enjoy their food so much, it actually tastes better when eaten slowly and enjoyed as apposed to wolfing it down so fast that you taste nothing and didn’t even realize you had finished it already :(OK, so I know that the caesar salad probably wasn’t the best thing to do, but I am still pleased  with my progress because it could have been a lot worse considering what I have been eating the past 2 months and I also enjoyed a few “anti bloating” teas using my new Keurig and infuser that I got for Xmas (which I love by the way) Surprisingly the teas actually did what they claimed they would do.

I have scheduled an appointment to see my weight Dr. who is expecting me to be 180 when I go back. I am currently 228 so I don’t think that is going to happen in a months time, but I am going to do my best to get down as much as I can and may even start exercising again 🙂 It will be really embarrassing to go back having failed, but it was my own doing and now I need to suck it up and deal with the consequences . . .

I have added my tea recipe . . .

Add to the infuser a small piece of fresh ginger (I sometimes use 1/4 tsp ground), with 1 tsp fennel (I crush them), steep together for 15-17 minutes, then add peppermint tea (I break open a bag and add) steep another 10-12 minutes

Does the trick for me. Please keep in mind that ginger can affect  people in different ways, so be careful and enjoy!!!
