Today, I've come to the end of 3 weeks of eating healthy. In all of my life, I've never not had sugar for 3 entire weeks and I'm still surprised that I'm even managing to do this at all. It almost seems surreal. There are times, like right now, that a craving hits me like a big bag of quarters. I guess it didn't help that 20 minutes ago, I watched my husband eat a big bowl of Breyers chocolate and vanilla ice-cream. I thought about having a bowl, but tomorrow will be the start of my 4th week. To me, that's a really big deal. Now, I will say that next week is our 4 year wedding anniversary and I am giving myself the green light. Yes, I'm going to allow myself to go for it and have whatever my heart desires for dinner that night. I still don't know what restaurant he's taking me to, but wherever it'll be, I've decided that I'm even having desert, too.
Glucose: 95 (2 points lower than yesterday)
Daily Food Journal:
I wanted a big breakfast this morning. Since I had the day off and my husband had to work, I thought it would be the perfect time to scramble some eggs with peppers. My husband hates peppers, but I think their delicious, so I brought three of them... red, yellow and green.
I sautéed the peppers and added the eggs, put some Jimmy Dean turkey sausage links in the microwave then made some coffee.
Oh and I had one slice of whole wheat toast, too.
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs, 2 turkey link sausages, 1 slice of toast, decaf
Lunch: Plain nonfat yogurt with strawberries and muesli added, 1/2 banana
Snack: 12 almonds
Dinner: 2 slices of rotisserie chicken, 1 baked sweet potato, French style green beans and hot tea
Notes: A big breakfast before my journey consisted of a whole lot more food, but I guess we're all trying harder these days. Until tomorrow.
