Saturday is supposed to be cheat day, and boy, did I cheat! I thought I’d be good and wait until 3:30 pm to eat. We were ordering tacos from this place in LA called Kraken Tacos. I dreamt about these taco’s all week; they are a real treat. They were supposed to arrive at 3:30 pm but did not arrive until after 5 pm. We were at my in-laws and the neighbor across the street was having a birthday party. She had a bunch of French fries left-over, so she gave them to us.
Jean Valjean and I were exhausted. We had done errand after errand, buying a fridge, searching for sugar-free pumpkin spice creamer, procuring vodka, and veggies for the week at Costco. I gave in and had fries.
Since Saturday was cheat day I had half a cookie from ’My Cookie Dealer, ’ a place in New York that one of my friends told me about. We ordered a bunch of cookies from them for my birthday back in August. We are eating through them and other batches our housemate has purchased. I can only have them on Saturday’s, so it’s hard to watch JVJ and our housemate eat them but I’m surviving.
For lunch today, Sunday, we had a brisket that I cooked. I literally cooked it for 39 hours. It came out so good. I may do a separate post about that at some point. We went back to the in-laws for lunch and I cheated a bit. I ate some crab mac and cheese as well.
For dinner, I had the brisket again with a salad.
My blood sugar was not great today. I’m sure it’s a reflection of what I ate yesterday. I pounded some water after we got home from lunch today, and I was able to get it in check. I did not end up recording my average yesterday.
My new goal is to continue with the water and meditate at least ten minutes for the next five days.
I’m grateful for good food with my family.
