Thoughts: Happy Halloween!
Except for the bit of low fat, no sugar added ice cream I had Saturday, I stuck with my BFL meals, so free day didn’t really happen. I guess that’s why I let myself have a “real” free day today. 😉
Yes, we are talking about a greasy, typical American breakfast of a cheeseless veggie omelette, two sausage links, half a Belgian waffle with strawberry topping, some potato wedges, a mini cranberry muffin, fruit, extra scrambled eggs, two mini pancakes, a dinky mini blueberry cheesecake, and a biscuit with gravy. This was followed by a big bowl of white rice at my parents’ house with Chinese sausage, stir-fried napa with black mushrooms, some summer squash, and a bit of stir-fried omelette with scallions. Dinner was Hong Kong beef noodles. In between these lovely, salty meals were probably about 8 Hershey’s miniature chocolate bars of assorted varieties, a chewy granola bar, six waffle cone cookies, and 5 butter cookies. I don’t know why Mom and Dad have so many cookies around nowadays. They NEVER used to keep those things in the house when I was growing up.
My only redeeming action yesterday was drinking at least a gallon of water along with my excess, LOL.
So much for a controlled free day. I guess hardcore mode will have to wait until Monday! I can’t wait to hop on the scale Monday and see how much temporary damage I’ve done.
