Egad! I woke up to a 1.8 weight gain. Yesterday I went to my mother and father-in-law’s 50th anniversary celebration dinner. I deliberately didn’t eat beforehand so I could enjoy the festivities with the rest of the family. My plan was to have chicken and salad. THERE WAS NO SALAD! Isn’t salad a staple at a dinner? In fact, there were no vegetables at all! WTH? There was only broccoli in some type of pasta dish. Unbelievable! I ate some chicken francaise (there was no baked), a small piece of beef, some shrimp stuffed with crab, and a teenie bit of pasta. I was stuffed.
When the cake came out, I declined. It was made clear that everyone was expected to take a piece of cake to celebrate the honorees. I took a sliver. I drank only seltzer water all day.
I am devastated by the gain, but not surprised. This was technically a cheat. So today, I’ve opted to do a mini steak day to hopefully lose what I gained and continue losing thereafter.
What will I eat on this mini steak day???
- Only coffee or tea for breakfast as usual
- Lots of water, coffee and/or tea throughout the rest of the day
- No lunch
- For dinner, 100 g of steak with a serving of tomatoes
From what I researched, that should bring about a loss. So now, I’m resting in bed after a beautiful morning in church, enjoying a Netflix movie, and sipping on a large coffee. I have a big bottle of seltzer water nearby. Later, I’ll grill a steak and tomato on my George Foreman grill.
Praying for a loss to end Week 2. Until tomorrow…
Grace and peace,
