I finally broke down and opened my Lindt 90% cocoa bar. I had dance class tonight plus hadn't used all my calories for the day. 4 squares are 240 calories. I ate it pretty slow and tried to savor it. It was hard because 90% isn't that sweet. But, it hit the spot. I followed it up with frozen strawberries.

I'm excited about having to purchase new pants!
The temptation to eat garbage is less and less. I saw a donut today and thought about a trick an old Weight Watchers leader told me. Look at the food and how vibrant the color is. Then imagine the color getting more and more dull. Imagine it getting so dull that it starts to look old and even moldy. By the time I was done, the donut looked almost green. I didn't want it to start with and definitely didn't want it after.

http://www.foodsafetynews.com/2012/01/dont-eat-like-a-caveman/ I've hit my first plateau. I keep bouncing around within the same few pounds. I'm not eating nearly the amount of sugar I was before. I'm exercising regularly. And bam! There's that wall. Maybe I'll add in brown rice and legumes once or twice a week? Food is confusing.

My issues seem to be centered on carbs. I've had a few occasions now where my carbs have gotten so low that I can barely focus/speak/walk. I'm just not that good at food. I'm so used to getting my energy from sugar that I'm a little lost.

Saturday and Sunday ended up being unplanned "cheat" days. I'm ok. But I need to hit the gym today for sure. Mondays are my gym day and I can't miss it. 15 pounds down and 15 to go. Saturday was a belated Valentine's Day dinner at the Olive Garden. I had the mixed grill which was steak, chicken, potatoes and asparagus. I had salad which had parmesan cheese but picked the croutons out (cuz I don't like them). I did eat almost an entire breadstick. I counted as much of it as I could using the nutrition guide on the Olive Garden website. Mike brought me a soy chai latte on Sunday morning. Soy isn't on my diet but I can't drink dairy right now. Well, neither is the sugar but my sugar intake is still very low. Sunday's dinner was at a great restaurant in Carson City called "Sassafras." I had the Thai Chicken salad. I have no clue what the calories were in that. It was an explosion of flavors in my mouth. Mike decided to get something called Supercalicheesalicious...our something like that as an appetizer. It was a small sourdough round full of different cheese and garlic pieces. We are paying for it today but it was amazing. Back to reality and my nose to the grindstone.
