It was the salad dressing and the stewed tomatoes, I bet, but I finally dealt with Mr. Hunger mostly by ignoring him.
B: Two eggs scrambled with scallions, fresh cilantro, and black pepper; refried black beans with jalapenos; 1% milk
L: Chicken soup minus the pasta, side salad with Russian, chopped sirloin patty with onions, stewed tomatoes, brussel sprout, diet coke.
S: Green tea and string cheese
D: Seared ahi tuna redux with stir-fried squash and broccoli slaw, 1% milk
S: Babybel and zinfandel
S: String cheese (I blame the wine)
I ate lunch at a diner and probably should have stuck with the side salad, but I wanted to get more veggies in. The brussel sprouts were just gross looking and my coworker who also ordered them took one look and pushed them aside, so I followed. I ate a couple of the stewed tomatoes, but I realized this morning after reading a label on the market shelf that canned stewed tomatoes can have up to 8g of added sugar per serving
. The salad definitely had too much dressing - need to order that on the side next time. My string cheese was not enough in the afternoon and I had no alternatives up my sleeve since I had to go straight to DD's indoor soccer game after work. So I just kind of ignored Mr. Hunger for a couple of hours.
I had a leftover yellow squash and about a cup of broccoli slaw and a piece of ahi tuna that is apparently worth its weight in gold or cocaine or something, so I chopped up the squash and stir fried it with the slaw in some sesame oil and ginger sesame dressing. It was a nice colorful base for the tuna. Three dinners without salad! I am now going to try to keep lettuce off the dinner table as a rule. Oh, and I watched the DF scarf down their Friday pizza (DW went small helping with a side salad) with something approaching indifference. I like pizza, don't get me wrong, but I love it's convenience more than its taste.
I went to P1 not because of cravings, but because I wanted a good sugar purge. So with nearly a week in the bag and not a craving of note, I had a nice glass (or two) of red zin to celebrate. Or something like that. It made me hungrier than I anticipated, so I had another string cheese. In hindsight, I should have gone LCL and celery, but it was late and I had a cheap buzz going. So - too much cheese yesterday, but I've metabolized worse in the past. Newcomers - do not try this at home. No wine for you on P1, and keep the cheese to two servings a day! Do as I say and not as a I do!
