This weekend was harder at times than I thought and easier at times than I thought. I guess it depends on the moment in time.
I brought my own food with me down to the in laws which really helped. It also helped that at the meals that we ate together, I could eat some of what the rest were eating.
Saturday night, my father in law’s girlfriend made roasted chicken with chourizo, salad, rice and bread. That was one was easy. Stay away from rice and bread.
Today at lunch, my mother in law did a lobster bake. Boiled lobster? Yes please! I couldn’t eat the corn, bread, or potatoes that were served with it, but I brought bok choy and red pepper to share with everyone from my farm share.
Oh and on the way home, we stopped at McDonald’s as we were traveling at dinner time. McDonald’s can suck it for many reasons, but for today they can suck it because their salads are pre-made. Like it would be THAT hard for the workers to assemble the whole five ingredients in the pre-made part. They have to open it up to add the warm grilled chicken anyway.
So since the salad was pre-made, I had to avoid the cheese in it. Every other ingredient was on plan for me. I feel like I made the best choice I could at the time.
Tomorrow is the “refeed” meal where I get to eat what I want for one meal. It will be at dinner time. I thought I would be DESPERATE for this meal by now and all excited, but I’m not feeling that way at all.
Of course I’ve been thinking about it and debating what I want to do. Do I go out or stay in? What do I get? Chinese? Italian? NO CHICKEN!
I’ll figure it out tomorrow after work.
