Evidently areas right near me got torrential rain yesterday, up to 5" over the length of the storm. Not so bad here, just 10 miles away. Did some shopping this morning while it was clear, got home and my walk buddy called and wanted to walk. I was skeptical, but took my hooded jacket since there were threatening clouds. Well, she's my good luck charm (one of those people who has no reason to be in a positive mood, but forces herself!) and the sun came out - blue sky, puffy clouds, but lots of wind. We walked for over an hour, up and down hills.
Got on the scale this morning and my blip of weight gain from my couple of weekend splurges is gone and I'm back to 172, so down 3 whole pounds since restarting. It's gonna be slow, especially when I'm not sticking to my plan
So trying to be very strict about having lots of veggies, small amounts of lean protein, nuts, fruit, and a little yogurt. Trying to skip the cheese except for a little flavor hit now and then.
Did a major produce run this morning. Hopefully I won't have to go again until the end of the week. Hit two stores: eggplant, zucchini, baby peppers, garlic, cucumbers, portabellas, potatoes (for the guys), bananas. Probably forgetting a few things. Then stocked up on some small boxes of 99 cent frozen veggies: spinach, squash, brussels sprouts. Decided to save some $ and bought ff plain yogurt which I have draining in the fridge. Made some tzatziki to have with a few thin slices of leftover lamb on top of a salad for lunch. Yummmmm. Made DS a gyro with ww pita. Maybe I'll splurge tomorrow and have mine with the bread, though I'm really trying to stay away from it.
