I wish I could bottle this "beginnings" determination to last me through future days of stalls which are sure to come. Hmm, maybe they won't though. Maybe this new plan really will keep my metabolism roaring.
Cro was attending a huge pork roast late into the night to make Chili Verde for this week at my request. What a super sweet man he is. He also spent half of the weekend (all day yesterday) dismantling our home's nearly 50-year old bathroom plumbing and installing new. I would say he deserves a vacation day soon!
I have meals stacked in the fridge for today and part of tomorrow and will pack up Chili Verde tonight. I'm eating the same type of meals over and over but as long as I mix and match it doesn't get so tedious that I feel like throwing in the towel. Maybe the fact that eating the same simple meals is a bit boring is good.
When it comes time to eat a meal I've been finding myself not really wanting to and having to make myself grab a meal, heat it up, take a photograph and eat. It's not the old "I want to eat" drive I used to have. It's not munching on something out of boredom. It's more of a necessary chore. After the meal is done I don't think about the next one other than doing the mental math of when I have to eat next. It's all for the good of my metabolism now and not for the pleasure of eating. That's significant.
I do think about next Saturday though. That's the day when I don't have to plan my meals ahead and don't have to eat the same boring thing. The day that I don't have to eat by a certain time of waking up and don't have to eat beans but can eat cookies if I want. A day of freedom to a certain extent. Yay Saturday. Oh! And it's also the day I find out if I've lost more weight!
