I posted a one-week eating update last week. Here's the two-week one.
I've eaten out a few times, all cautiously. One was a Chinese restaurant where I had a steamed (I think) flounder and rice, another a Thai restaurant where I had larb gai and a spring roll, and the third a fusion restaurant where I had a dungeness crab omelet.
I've been really good about cooking too. Yesterday I snagged six pounds of pretty damned good tomatoes from the farmers market, and for a buck a pound, too! I spent yesterday evening turning them into some pretty excellent spaghetti sauce, so lunches this week are that sauce on top of spaghetti squash. Other than that, I'm eating lots of fruits and vegetables, eggs, some dairy, and lean meats, just like my plan called for.
I had one day last week where I was right around 800 calories at the end of the day. That seemed too low, so I contemplated a snack. The problem was that I felt pretty stuffed, and overeating just to get the calorie count up seemed like wrong thinking to me.
Surprisingly, to me at least, I've had zero temptation to stray from my plan. I think it's because I feel like I'm eating well and eating plenty of food, rather than starving myself or subsisting on dry green salads. I have a week and a half of this left, then I'm off to Vegas for a week and a half. When I return, I'll be back to a slightly-modified version of what I'm doing now.
