Today I am officially down 20lbs since starting this. 20lbs in less than a month is pretty impressive. I still have the energy to do this, I’m finding. I’ really sticking to the plan more so than I’ve ever stuck to a plan before. Even when given some serious challenges for foods, I’ve stuck to it. The people I work with are constantly surprised to see how close I stick to the plan. This was evident on Sunday during our breakfast when we all went out and I gave the waiter a hard time about trying to get something that wasn’t “Homefries and toast” with my omelette.
There were a few issues on my move weekend in terms of food though. One day, the movers ate our breakfast before we got there and I had to go find breakfast elsewhere. My boss suggested I just “Eat some cereal” and I told her that I can’t or I’ll get sick. I found this nice little place called Mike and Patty’s a few blocks down that serves organic eggs. I ordered their Bacon and Egg Fancy sandwich without the bagel/muffin. They offered ANOTHER egg in exchange. Yes please. You want to give me ANOTHER egg… because I don’t want the bread? Ok, sucker.
We had PF Changs one night and the only thing that I could even remotely get near was the Beef and Broccoli… but I think it was seasoned or stirred with soy sauce and I was pretty sick to my stomach for a few days. And then yesterday with the Mexican Debacle… I’m starting to look into foods to bring or places to go when I need a paleo meal at work.
