I noticed a very interesting thing about my experience. Other than the fact that I don't know where ANYTHING is in the new store close to my house...
All of my shopping basket contents were from the outer perimeter of the store. Not a single thing came from an aisle. I bought nothing in a box. Or a can.
There can't be anything wrong with that. I did spend a tiny amount of time in the freezer section, though, just to get some frozen vegetables.
Tonight's menu includes:
- Roasted pork tenderloin
- Roasted sweet potatoes, peppers, onions, and other vegetables
- Some type of salad, with a vinagrette dressing
- Water (copious amounts)
I can feel the hunger in my stomach. But I'm not exactly "hungry." I think I'm a little "unfull." When I lost 33 pounds on Weight Watchers several years ago, I remember feeling this way. After the second week, I didn't feel that way any more. So, I'm banking on this being a temporary situation. I already feel less "sloshy" during workouts. I know there hasn't been a major reduction, but I can feel the bloating go away.
Going to be a great weekend.
