I’ve felt incredibly good today. I think that making sure I got enough to eat yesterday had something to do with it. I’ve missed 1200 calories today by a little bit but after I’d remembered some more yesterday, I ended up with more than 1200. I was bookin’ down the hallway and one of the housekeepers told me to slow down. I can’t. If I could get away with it, I’d run down the hall. I still get the urge to skip but I contain myself.
I don’t know why the numbers are so different, fiberwise, but I’m not going to worry about it. It’s strange to be sure that I eat enough when, in times past, I would try not to eat too much, go hungry, and still not lose weight.
I’ll try to remember everything I ate today. Breakfast was two small bananas, a nectarine, a black plum (juicy and luscious), three apricots (had to trim them up so much that I counted them as two), and sunflower seeds.
Lunch was a big salad (I brought some home) of kale, spinach, parsley, snow peas, onion, tomato, sea salt, and lime juice. I had a couple of large leaves of romaine with Mock Salmon Pate. I’d taken a big bag of watermelon but it had taken so long to eat the other that I only had a couple or three chunks and I brought that home, too.
For supper, I blended the salad that was left and added another kale leaf to it. It didn’t come up far enough on the blades to do a good job so I put in some distilled water. It wasn’t bad at all. Then I had a tomato “sandwich” with a couple of large iceburg lettuce leaves, two slices of tomato, some thinly sliced onion, a smear of Mock Salmon Pate, and dulse flakes. After that, I ate a banana, a nectarine, and a slice of cantaloupe. I killed a pineapple and ate what was probably four slices. The cantaloupe was so huge that I knew I couldn’t eat it all by myself so I took half of it to my neighbors. I’m so stuffed that there is no way I could wedge in another 40+ calories. I think that’s close enough, anyway.
One of these days, I’m going to put down some of the valuable lessons I’ve learned but not tonight. I’ll save that treat (?) for another time.
