It was worth it!! I ate my omelet around noon because after updating my blog yesterday morning, I decided to get a early start on my shopping. I stopped my Wal*Mart to buy a hoodie that was on clearance and a flannel men's jacket that was also on clearance. Yes, these are for me. I stopped by the World Market as well to purchase some hammered glasses plates, dinner and salad size, a couple of cute espresso cups and some miniature condiments. They were giving away a tote bag if you made a $25 purchase. I stopped by one of the local grocery stores to buy some zucchini, jalapenos and some 69 cent tv dinners for my daughter. So my omelet consisted a few more ingredients hence the zucchini, jalapeno and the eggplant I had forgot that I bought earlier in the week for this reason, topped off with sliced avocado and a couple of grape tomatoes. I didn't get to have that salad since I was stuffed till the evening. At around 5pm I fired up the grill so I could cook up that chicken breast before the dark set in. On my birthday's eve my daughter had asked if she could go to the mall with a friend so that I could still enjoy my day without her here to bother me. I told her that I would be home alone most of the day so that when she got home, she and I could enjoy my day but she chose to go with her friend. She was looking at me funny when I was cooking that chicken breast and says, "You're having chicken for your birthday?!" I explained to her that yes because that was what I was craving. I didn't want to have to go into a whole drawn out explanation about the diet. So, I had my dinner around 6:30pm and then my sister called. We spoke for a while but I ate as this conversation took place. In addition to my dinner, I had grilled eggplant slices (2), yuuuum! My daughter arrived at around 11:00pm and I was so ready for bed by then. Needless to say, I didn't get my full 8 hours in last night, I awoke around 6am and the cats pouncing on me didn't exactly help as well, since my daughter forgot to feed them last night or give them water. I did get up around midnight to give them water because the kitten was dragging the water dish around the kitchen and I knew it was empty.

So here is my dilemma. Yes I am enjoying this break today and tomorrow as well since I went overboard buying the veggies and chicken, I will resume the injections and VLCD on Monday, but should I just restart counting as injection one? I think I may have to since this interruption took place way too early in the game. I was just so anxious to start that I thought I could make it through my birthday on VLCD, but that didn't happen. I shall ponder this throughout the day and reread P&I.
  • Biz, yes I promise I will not have any junk during this small disruption, and thanks for being my cyber mom, and keeping me in check!! Luv ya!!
  • Jen, well now I want pork chops, but I work with a bunch of them so I get plenty of pork at work, he he!!
  • Wendy & Ewewho, thanks for stopping by and thank you for the birthday wishes!!
  • Crystal, you are just too funny!! I was a good one, thanks!!
  • Becca, I gave plenty of warning, and yes, I am much younger (mentally rather than physically, ha!)
  • Lili, thanks for the links and I will continue to research.

Excellent! That wasn't too bad at all was it?

If it were me, and it isn't, but if it were, I would just count it as injection #1. But that's me.

Ah, look at that menu!

Ed & Jennifer said...

YUM! Nice day huh?! 1.6, you'll lose that on your first VLCD 1!

Yeah, I'm with Biz I would just start over and count it as injection day 1.

You're comment about working with pork was sooo funny!

And remember, your only as old as the men the feel! hee,hee

You birthday sounds as though it was spent relaxing. That's great!

I saw on the news that Whole Foods Market (who bought our Wild Oats Market) is going to a "no plastic bags" policy. I just purchased some tote bags that zip down into a packet about the size of a checkbook. I keep them in my car so when I go shopping I can use them. I even used one in Wal-Mart the last time I went.

You didn't really go overboard, so just start over or jump right back in, whichever you decide. You'll shed that 1.6 pounds quickly enough.
