I felt pretty darn good during Phase 2 which is the meat and veggies phase. I did miss being able to have any fruit or grains but I felt pretty stable mentally and was never hungry during this phase. I am now going into Phase 3 of the eating plan. During this phase we are able to eat many more items at each meal and snack. Each meal gets to have a healthy fat, grains, protien, veggies and fruit.
I am anxious to see how my body reacts to this phase and I am excited to plan my menu for the next week. I am thrilled that, after 4 full days on this plan, my weight is down 5 lbs.
Saturday night we are taking Larry, Mary and Natasha out to dinner. We will be celebrating Larry and Mary's 50th Wedding Anniversary.
Sunday is our last meal with all of our CA folks. I am not sure who will be coming by to see them or how many we will be having for dinner so I am keeping it easy with burgers and salads.
Mary, Natasha and Molly leave at 5 am on Monday morning. I have a meeting at church at 4 pm and Larry and our brother, Dick, are spending the evening together before Larry leaves for his road trip back home on his Harley. He makes that trip every year.
Things quiet way down after that with nothing scheduled as of yet. Still waiting on appraisals on the houses and closing dates. Enjoy the Weekly Menu and I will be talking to you soon.
