Today’s weight: 254.4
Difference from last drop day: -0.0!
Neat! I managed to go two entire week… and end with the exact same weight at my last drop day!
So, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I’m starting back on my drops for another 3 weeks.
I’m going to go ahead and “load” tomorrow… just because I really want to. Even though, I’m not technically supposed to, as I just took a ‘break’ rather than the full 6 week reset. But, I’m going to anyway. 😀
Not that I ate great today… but it was a stressful day, and it was just a day where I really didn’t give a shit. Of course, I’m already paying for the carb overload (I ate Mexican food, chips & salsa). My head has been hurting for several hours & I feel a bit bloated. *sigh* I’ll just chug an extra bottle of water & hope for the best, though. Even though I fully expect I’ll be up in water weight tomorrow.
I’ve made a pumpkin cheesecake for tomorrow. (From scratch, yummy!!) And I have Jello in the fridge, waiting to be made into jewel salad (yummy, whipped creamy goodness). Hubby also popped the turkey into the brine mix this afternoon, so the gobble-gobble will be ready to rock the deep-fryer tomorrow. In the morning, I’ll be making my mashed cauliflower bake (recipe below – it’s low-carb!) and mashed sweet potatoes with butter & cinnamon (can’t stand candied yams *ack*gack*). My best-friend, S, made pumpkin pies & cranberry loaf bread. She’s also making other side dishes & her hubby is making his A.Maz.Ing Clam Dip. SOOO GOOD!
So… see why I’m gorging tomorrow? LOL!!
Oh! And tomorrow, when I go back on the drops… I’m taking S, hubby, & the roomie with me! *bwahahahaha* I’m so excited to have more people on the journey with me! And, it makes me happy that they’re all committing to making a healthier start for themselves as well (even if there was a bit of arm-twisting with the roomie).
Okay, the cheesecake is out of the oven… I’m going to wrap this up & go to bed.
Breakfast was 4 oz beef, 2 eggs, & 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
Snack was an apple & coffee/unsweetened almond milk.
Lunch was bad: tortilla chips & pico de gallo & a couple bites of a chicken chimichanga.
Dinner was a Popeye’s chicken leg & part of a thigh & a biscuit.
Then, I ate a dark chocolate covered marshmallow santa… (told you I was bad today)
Water count: 90 oz (+16 oz hot tea)
Mashed Cauliflower Cheesy Bake
2 heads fresh cauliflower
1 stick butter
2-3 tbsp minced garlic
1 package shredded cheese of your choice
chop the cauliflower & boil until tender. Drain very well & press out some of the water with a paper towel over a colander.
In a food processor, fill 3/4 full, add a hunk of the butter & a scoop of the garlic. Blend until smooth (mashed potato consistancy, but a bit wetter). Dump into a 9×13 baking dish.
Repeat until all cauliflower is processed.
Spread the cheese over the top of the cauliflower & then bake for 15-20 minutes, or until melty & bubbly.
I usually serve this with my low-carb fried pork rind chicken. So good!
