Down .2 this morning! Not mad, considering I was expecting a gain after yesterdays loss.
First things first, I need to celebrate the fact that tonight I went out for my friend's bday- AND DID NOT DRINK. This is a miracle. Especially since we were at a club and everyone was getting trashed next to me. I managed to keep it together by chewing on ice and fresh squeezed lime juice. IT WAS HARD. We even had a table— with bottle service. At one point, I fantasized about grabbing a bottle of vodka out of my friends hand and chugging - all Hangover style- it was like in the movies where someone pictures something happening and then they snap back to reality. It was extremely difficult for me, since I hate turning down a good birthday celebration, but it was proof that I could have (some) fun without drinking :)
The diet is still rough, I am trying to find ways to work it a little bit— by trying to eat my breakfast a little later so I am not STARVING at lunch... and eating lunch an hour later, so I'm not starving by 4:00. This helps a bit. Plus the recipes are getting better. Tonight I had green cauliflower soup. It was soooo good. I added a little garlic, basil, and onion to the recipe which I think, made it better. Perhaps when this diet is over I will make this a regular staple.
