One at a time is good fishin'

Here it is Wednesday again. Last Sunday I told you I was going to be more faithful this week.  That went out the door nearly immediately.  We got home from Mass and were getting ready to host a #SoupSwapParty.  I was busy getting my Pumpkin Dinner Rolls in the oven  and starting on my Escarole and White Bean Soup.  At least the soup was Phase 3 Friendly....see I WAS trying.

Then Frank heated up some leftover pizza.....and it smelled good.....and I hadn't eaten on schedule as I should.....and BLAH BLAH BLAH.  Bottom line...I ate pizza for lunch.  Then the guests arrived, all bringing their wonderful soups.  Boy there were some great soups!!

But they were not all #FMD friendly and then there were those delicious rolls that I had to have.  Oh, and let's not forget the apple pie that I made for dinner.  Not at all #FMD friendly.

Monday though....Monday I was pretty good....except for lunch.  Lunch was Sushi with my friend, Cathy.  Not too unfriendly except for the white rice.

Then comes yesterday.  I was so good all day yesterday.  I cheated just a smidge with some cookies that I made for dessert but even those were pretty #FMD friendly....and super delicious.....I will be sharing that recipe later.  No, I did pretty good yesterday with the food.  Kim and Kurt joined us for dinner.  I served fish and lots of veggies, steamed acorn squash, steamed green beans, cucumber and tomato salad all served up with LOTS of would have been a great day if not for the 2 bottles of wine that Kim and I shared.

That brings us to today.  Wednesday.  Weigh in day.  Another week gone and 1 more pound gone from the scale.  It's not the eating plan is all me.  I am certainly not going to complain over a pound lost.  Heck, before this eating plan I was ecstatic to lose a pound a week and that was without cheating!!  I am going to get back on track and I am not going to beat myself up for living life.  Each day is a fresh start and I am going to start it off with a smile and a prayer.


  1. The best thing you can do is just start over tomorrow!! A pound is still a good thing!

    1. I start over fresh each day Paula. I'll settle for a pound without sticking to the plan.....I think that is amazing.
