This week I had a couple of rocky days, too... I wasn't tempted, or anything like that - but I was BUSY - and busy means it's hard to eat on schedule... I had to eat earlier than "3 hours", a few times, and I know that's "ok" but it makes me nervous, cuz I'm a detailed kind of person - and like to be on schedule. And a couple of times, I was 10 to 30 minutes AFTER my 3 hours :(
On Sat. night, my husband and I ate over at our Pastor and Wife's house - and that went smoothly. He grilled steaks, and she made a nice salad ( along with other things) but that's what I ate - and my plate was nice and full!
Then on Sunday, I met a dear friend for lunch at a great little place in Geneseo, IL. I called ahead to make sure they had options that I could eat. I ordered Baked Chicken, Veggies, and a side salad. When the salad came, it had slivered carrots, and shredded cheese (duh, I forgot to ask what was ON the salad!). I did my best to move them to the side without being too conspicuous. Then my Baked chicken came - and was BREADED!! OH MY... who would've thought? So, off came the breading and skin...! I still had a very enjoyable lunch, and had a great time with my friend.
So, stepping up on that scale today... I will admit I was nervous! But OH - I'm sooo happy. I put on a pair of jeans that I haven't worn in years!! They fit great at the waist, a little tight in the thighs, but I'm wearing them RIGHT NOW anyway! :)
