Back on track with a Cranberry/Carrot Smoothie

I started back up with my eating plan yesterday.  I got up and enjoyed my Phase 1 breakfast of blueberries and crispy brown rice cereal with rice milk.  I drank a couple of glasses of water and began cooking and baking for a dinner I was serving for 30 members of our church.

I snacked on cantaloupe as I cooked.  I stopped for lunch and had roasted chicken, vegetables and rice from my sister's party over the weekend that featured Lebanese food....YUM.  I drank more water.  I was doing great.  The first dessert came out of the oven, cooled and was cut into pieces.  I tried a bite and gave the rest of my piece to Frank.  It was delicious.


When it was time for my afternoon snack I took a few minutes to make myself a smoothie. Smoothies help me to make this eating plan much easier.  I grabbed some fresh cranberries and a carrot out of the fridge, added some water and ice, hit puree and in a moment had my afternoon snack in my hand.

And then everything went south.  The second dessert came out.  I certainly had to try it before serving it....or so I told myself.  The truth was chocolate and peanut butter and I couldn't resist a piece. Then I took everything over to the church to finish the cooking there.  Come dinner time I was hungry and hadn't planned what I would eat as everyone else was enjoying the Polish Feast I had prepared.  Polish food is very delicious but it is not FMD friendly at all.  So I had some creamed cucumbers, some tomato salad, 1 stuffed cabbage, a little kielbasa and sauerkraut, 1 potato cheese pierogi with sour cream and another one of those peanut butter and chocolate bars.  

Sigh....I did drink 32 more oz. of water while at the meeting but when I got home I was tired and worn out.  Frank poured me a glass of wine before remembering that I had gone back on the eating plan.  He apologized and started to take it away but I snapped at him so he left it and then poured me another glass when I handed him my empty.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day.


  1. LOL! Isn't this the way of trying to stay on our eating plans. Sometimes I think we just need to accept ourselves with all of our plumped up glory!!

    1. I know it Paula but I'm gonna strive to at least eat healthily most of the time.
