I've read before (sorry, I can't point to where, but I've seen it more than once) that a woman should start a diet after her "time of the month" and never before. Just better to let the hormones work for you, rather than against you.
Yet, here I find myself, deep in the throes of PMS, and trying to start back on that Rapid Start Plan again. It's not going so well.
I had raisin bran and coffee for breakfast. A big salad, with only two tablespoons of dressing, for lunch. A cup of light yogurt for a snack. And then...a cookie.
But then, baked tilapia, cold slaw with low calorie dressing, and fat free baked beans for supper. And then...a cookie.
R must be hormonal as well, because he followed me into the kitchen and promptly ate seven miniature Reese's cups. But then he ate some grapes. And when I commented that we weren't doing so well on our diet, he said, "Hey, at least I'm eating fruit."
All in all, I figure the majority of our choices today were healthy. I know we got more vegetables in than we would have on a typical day. I'm calling it a win, given the timing.
