I can not believe that a whole week has passed already! This has been surprisingly easy, and I’m assuming that has a lot to do with you out there. Thinking and writing about this journey has kept me wholly engaged without any desire to deviate. I’m grateful that it hasn’t been hard and that I haven’t had any cravings to work through. I’m sure it will happen over the course of this, but so far so good!
We had some friends over for a full English breakfast today, which I modified a bit so that it fit my needs. Then we spent the day out with them and didn’t end up getting back home until 3pm. Breakfast had been late, close to 9, and I packed a few plums and apricots to share so that I wasn’t starving. I forgot to pack a bar, but it turns out I only started to get really hungry a little after 2pm. I ate a really big lunch and that will probably be it for the day. Maybe a bite of protein or something a bit later but I don’t anticipate a full dinner. I love the feeling of not worrying too much and having stable blood sugar throughout the day. My energy felt pretty even too.
I thought I’d share a quick list of what I ran to the grocery store for in case you were needing some inspiration. I don’t really have a plan for these things but they’ll appear in breakfast, lunch, or dinner at some point. I got a rotisserie chicken for tonight so that if anyone needed anything they could grab that as well as pre-cut broccoli, pre-cut cauliflower, slaw mix, baby spinach, mushrooms, snap peas, avocadoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, bananas, and eggs.
In the fridge I already have some broccoli roasted and ready to go, plus some hard boiled eggs and now some chicken. Everything else will fall into place over the week. I might pick up some beets because I ate the last of them today and I’ve been loving a cucumber-beet salad I made for breakfast the other day.
I hope you all had an amazing weekend and are gearing up for a week of healthy living and lots of loving!
