Well, drill weekend was successful. We had our Service Dress Blues inspection - I did fine. I completed our PRT on Sunday with an overall score of Excellent - Low, which was much better than I expected! My crazy, last minute workout routine must have done a little something for me!
I weighed in this morning. I'm at 160, up +1 pound from last Monday.
Trying to finish P1 at drill this weekend was really tough. I don't live near my NOSC, so our meals for dinner are from Denny's and lunch is catered in. Breakie went okay both days, but lunch was tough on Saturday. I wasn't able to pack my snacks or eat anything in between meals. Due to the limited availability on the buffet for Saturday's lunch, I was hungry at dinner. I ate a healthy salad but our table had nachos for an appetizer - I was so hungry, I couldn't resist. Then for dessert, I had a small vanilla Frosty.
Ice cream is my weakness, and that Frosty was so yummy... I know, not good for P1.
The Navy celebrated its 234th birthday on 10/13. On Sunday, we had a reception and I had a small piece of cake. It was good, but again, I know I shouldn't have. The funny thing is, I'm not really a sweet tooth for that stuff and wasn't really craving it! I guess that was more for the social aspect. I did make it home last night and had a healthy salad with tuna for dinner and SF fudgesicle and 1 t of NPB for dessert.
On to a new week. Today, I started P2. (It was so nice to have oatmeal and fruit for breakie!) I have decided to limit my carbs to once a day and my fruits to 1-2 servings a day until I see how the combos works for me. I'm only going to introduce either a cereal (oatmeal or Uncle Sam) at breakfast or a whole grain bread (I found some excellent 12 grain stuff at the grocery store!
) and berries or Granny Smith apples as my fruit.
