Little hung over today… But it was totally worth it!
Dinner was amazing! I had a Caesar salad, an absolutely amazing bone-in ribeye marinated in horseradish served over roasted red potatoes and a side of green beans sauteed in marinara sauce. That would probably have been ok to eat on the challenge except I also had a few glasses of white wine, desert and a desert drink. But again, it was such a special occasion and I had so much fun.
Now, back to reality.
For obvious reasons, I decided not to weigh myself this morning. Let’s just get back on track and go from there. My in-laws are in town for the weekend, which is great. We have so much fun together. But sticking with the challenge is a little difficult. All of a sudden the house is filled with Doritos, doughnuts and rice crispy treats.
Fruit punch Spark to start the day. And lots of water to get this hangover outta here.
For breakfast they went to McDonald’s and I had my usual three eggs over spinach.
Mid-morning snack was a small bag of almonds.
Lunch was cucumbers and tomatoes from our garden, a Caesar salad with no croutons, and a brat with no bun and a grilled onion. It was great! I had no problem avoiding the pita chips and Doritos on the table.
Afternoon snack was a handful of peanuts.
Dinner was also great. But I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture! B smoked ribs and we had corn on the cob and steamed green beans. The ribs were so good, I didn’t even need BBQ sauce. I intentionally wanted to avoid the sauce because of all the sugar and processed nature of it. I was worried it would feel like a restriction. But honestly, the ribs were so good it wasn’t hard at all! Thanks B!
