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 is...it 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.
