So as mentioned we went out to lunch today and I really didn't feel like the steak. I knew it was the safest option but I had it Friday night and I wanted chicken for lunch. But all the chicken dishes were out of the question because of sauces and other hidden sugar minefields that came with them. All I can say is thank god for google. As I googled ingredients and menu items to see how much sugar they had until I was satisfied I was doing the right thing. Although in doing so I would have looked like an antisocial dick sitting at the table on my phone whilst everyone was in conversation. Yep I was that person.
I ended up getting a sauteed chicken thigh on ciabatta bread with bacon, avocado and cheese. My main concern was the bread. Could I eat this bread. It had a higher percentage of sugar than the sourdough bread I had been eating but I thought that it was edible. I also had to google what sauteed meant.. yeh i'm so worldly. So I went for what basically was a fancy chicken sanga. I'm not sure if it was the bread that contributed to my fastest ever sprint to the toilet that afternoon because one minute I'm sitting on the couch enjoying my book and the next I've turned into Usain Bolt and I'm nailing it to the toilet. Who knows?? I also had a side of chips (smaller serving then I usually would eat) without the aioli sauce. And once again I did not feel like any desserts or anything sweet. Not even an inkling. I still can not get over this change in me. How did I go from planning my desserts before I even ate my main to not even wanting any. Even when the waitress came around offering chocolates from a box of cadbury favourites the only one who put her hand in the box was the one year old.. she knows, that she has to make the best of this situation.
I havent posted my weekly meal plan and funnily enough this has nothing to do with me being lazy or not having enough time.
Its because The husband wants to sit down and help me plan our weekly meals for the week. Something about him losing 2kg and him being like a greyhound and not being able to afford to lose any weight. He just wants to see what sides he can add (still sugar free that can bulk him up). So tomorrow we will plan out the week.
Although the husband should be on a diet of dog shit this week. He decided that he would try and be oh so funny by coming in with a large box for me for Mothers Day that I would automatically think was a Thermo-mix. He even waited till after he had given me a couple of little presents and then told the 6 year old to film my reaction...
When the box came in my first thought was holy crap he got me a Thermo-mix, then I felt guilty for making a comment about one of the presents he had got me, but then I looked at the size of the box and thought actually its a little bit small for a Thermo-mix box. But I still held out hope. Then when he put it on the ground I actually thought it moved a little and you couldn't wipe the smile off my face because I thought there was a puppy in it. I have been sending him photos of puppies and enquiring about fostering or buying a dog for months... SO my heart was bursting with happiness... only to be popped when I opened the box to find nothing in it and him thinking he was comedian of the year.
Lucky he got me two books on quitting sugar otherwise he would have got a swift kick to the ......
So for dinner tonight because we had a late lunch at the beach I decided to just serve up some leftovers. A bit of this and a bit of that, nothing too fancy. In the end it was lettuce leaves, cheese, capsicum, chicken breast with rice and soy sauce.
Tomorrow is my baking day for the week while the 6 year old is at school and I don't have to work. I will make up his weekly lunchbox goodies. I have found quite a few little treasures to try out because he is completely over the anzac biscuits and the lcm bar but is quite fond of the coconut crack. I will post about how it all goes tomorrow, well thats if I'm not too busy either celebrating our Oztag Grandfinal win or sobbing into my boots because we lost.
So here is to a new week, holy sugar balls its week 4 aleady !!!
