The end of my day went pretty well, eating-wise, though I had a couple of violations of my plan. I went out to visit my parents, and stayed for supper. My mom has lost a tremendous amount of weight and cooks healthy. The food was all good choices:
grilled lean pork chops (I had half of one, which was my first violation, since I'm out of red meat for the week - gotta pray about whether I need to do something to compensate for that, but feeling pretty good about only eating half of one - it was SO GOOD.)
corn on the cob from the garden (I had one ear with a tiny smidge of spray butter....since I had a sweet potato for lunch, I was out of "starchy veggies" for the day, so this was also a violation.)
sliced tomatoes from the garden WOW yum
fresh green beans from the garden WOW yum again
So my tallies for the day: 1 bread, 1 fruit, 1 milk, 3.5 protein, and 8, yes EIGHT servings of vegetables! And yes, I drank my 30 ounces of water - and had no soda today.
I'm thinking the light numbers on the first 3 compensate for the red meat - so I'm not going to do anything else to compensate for the variation/violation that happened today.
Onward and upward!
