Can’t talk long – gotta get back to work!! I went for a lovely walk this morning – about an hour – while talking to my mom. I came across a slitherin’ tiny snake! He must be on his way to the Harry Potter opening.
Home, showered, worked, I broke for a noontime lunch. I actually made today’s lunch and tomorrow’s lunch (which had to be packed) so it took me a while.
Today’s was an alternative salad –
Lefotver BBQ cabbage, steamed green beans + broccoli drizzled in honey mustard, carrot and jalapenos topped with a poached egg and a Whole Grain Goodness bun
I microwave poached the egg for 70 seconds at power level 5 and let it continue cooking on the counter
And I smothered the bun with Laughing Cow and this amazing raspberry jam from Fortnum and Mason. I LOVE jams with seeds in them, so this was totally my cup of tea.
Lastly I had a cup of the most delicious ripe cherries, but by the time I got to them I was full from all the veggies, so I am saving them for later –

Turns out I won the Blogger’s Choice awards!! Not sure how much competition there was or if this even means anything, but I guess it’s still pretty cool! Thanks for your votes!!
To answer> your questions from this morning’s post:
-No, I am not counting calories again. I haven’t counted in over a year (except for the occasional tally-up estimate).
-Getting “back to weight loss” just means eating a little less during the boring times to make the valleys greater than the peaks – less snacks, desserts, smaller portions. Think small tweaks – not deprivation, clearly.
-I never weight myself anymore and just go by how I look and feel in my clothes. I think I am better off not knowing the number on the scale and don’t even care to look when I go to the doctor’s office.
-The vertical axis numbers are just my way of getting the peaks in Excel 🙂 They don’t really mean anything other than the relativity to each other, although you could pretend they are the calories overeaten if you’d like (which is kind of what I estimated when I tried to think of a scale to use)
Hope that helps!
Off to do work. My schedule changed and I’m going to be in the office all day tomorrow instead of today. Fun to enjoy this sunshine!
