Monday, July 1, 2013
Well, today the 28 day challenge ends on E2X. I started a week late. I will continue my own Captain's challenge until Aug. 17, when I go to Plant-Stock! There I plan to enjoy slightly richer fair than is normal for the Captain. I would like to lose the 6 lbs I've gained over the last year. I'm feeling good about this. I enjoy the positive attitudes on E2X and the great feedback. I'm not sure if I should take time off from my food logs or not, until the next 28-day challenge. On the one hand, it's pretty easy to log. On the other, it might be nice to take a break, plus I'm going out of town a lot the next 2 weeks. On the other hand, I can share how I plan to stay on plan while traveling. I guess we'll just see. Meanwhile, here's today's food.
B: Baked buckwheat groats and cherries. I soaked the groats overnight and rinsed off the slime. Even then, I don't enjoy them as much as oats or quinoa.
L: cooked up my usual veggies: onion, kohlrabi, oriental yam, collards, asparagus, rice, and fresh herbs. offered these to my guests who enjoyed them. and ate some of their yummy fruit salad.
D: repeat of lunch. plus some cherries and lots of sugar snap peas. oh and some strawberries and blueberries that I was prepping for the freezer.
E: none, resting after yesterday's marathon (first time I can use that word literally, ha).
