Well...here I am...
writing a short blog tonight. But I want to check in with myself.
It was a stressful day in a lot of ways - lots of issues at work. But I stuck with the DIP all day.
The scale was up this morning, but that's okay. It's totally due to last night's treat; however, the increase was less than expected and will be gone in a day or two. Water and glycogen...blast the pair! Having said that, I think I've pushed through my self-caused plateau.
Smoothie for breakfast. I switched it up a bit. Well, I only dropped the strawberries, added some instant coffee, fiber (whatever it is in the orange container), and a little olive oil since I was out of coconut oil. It was yum, but I think I added a little too much instant coffee because it made my tummy feel a little weird.
Lunch was the cafeteria. It's a buffet-style place, but there was roast pork, so I had that with some egg salad and some watercress. Odd items to put together, but I liked it. I don't know why I like the watercress. It's decidedly green and has a bit of an odd taste - seems to be a hint of bitter rhubarb, but then nothing like rhubarb. I just checked - only 4 calories for an entire cup!
As with many folks, buffets are challenging, but I've got this one figured out...finally. I used to be a little bit of this and a little bit of that until I had tried damn near everything, but I've learned I need to make it THIS or THAT. I'm glad too because we seem to be eating there often enough.
We worked until almost 7 tonight - I didn't even want to think about food. Hubster had defrosted some hamburgers, so we sat on the patio while he cooked them on the grill. I had the hamburger with some provolone cheese and that was it. Kinda weird too, I was glad to be done eating.
The next few weeks are gonna be tough. I made the comment at work today that people needed to grow some vaginas. The person I was talking to just stopped, looked at me for a second, and then said, "You changed the anatomical part." I replied, "Yup, that's cause balls are sensitive and don't do shit. Vaginas? They take a pounding and keep going. They're tough." I heard a similar comment not long ago and it's true! Perhaps it's just me, but there are a few men I know who I wish could grow a vagina!
