6pm - handful of almonds

7:45pm - 2 PC chicken with olive oil and spices. Salad with water crest, spinach kale and butter leaves, pumpkin kernels,. Fire roasted corn and celery with Annie's lemon dressing. Small side of brown rice (I know, too late in the day - but my meal felt incomplete --emotionally maybe?).

Timing was way off today. Sundays are harder for me as they are my days to be with friends and family and eat and socialize and nap and be off my rhythm. Especially as Sunday mornings I'm at church from 9-12 - I just forgot to bring my bad of snacks with me.

2 liters of water - when you say you want me to drink more water - how much more?

Is it realistic for me to say M-F I'll be super on it - and weekends are are but more flexible with the basic principles and lots of veggies still, but more lax on some of the items? Or do you think that's not sustainable?


I totally understand about the weekends. They are hard for me...and for the rest of my clients...and it is something that we all need to figure out how to deal with. For you, we will continue to pay attention to what works and what is challenging. With the challenges, we will fix them by the awareness of how you can be prepared with bringing snacks, etc. Your eating yesterday was great with the choices of even if the timing was a little off...keeping the food good, clean and healthy was awesome!!! The later starch might have been a craving due to less food during the day...meaning lunch did not have a ton of protein and might have left you a little hungrier later in the day. I LOVE that you did not use any sweetener in your coffee...:)
2 liters of water is great, for now. The other day you had 1.5 so I just wanted to make sure you get at least 2 liters per day. When you can increase it...the goal is 3 liters per day. But right now, 2 liters is perfect. So, let's keep paying attention to the weekends...without too much pressure to stay on the structured eating...and see how we can incorporate the relaxation/friends/family and healthy eating. Have a wonderful Monday...Hugs!!!
