Ugh these 4am weigh ins!! But I only have 2 more injections to go and I can finally take my planned interruption.  Plus my lower back has been killing me all day.  I got home early and I seized the moment, I took a nap!! I slept for nearly 2 and 1/2 hours.  I feel better but my back doesn't, it still feels stiff.  Of course I have a million things to do but the nap was priority.  I got to go shopping while I was on duty because a co-worker was needed Muenster cheese.  He usually buys the loaf and splits it with me and doesn't ask for a dime.  How sweet huh?  But today, I purchased my own loaf and he still let me keep his change.  The cheese was on sale this week $1.99 per pound and that's pretty cheap.  Sadly they make you buy the whole the loaf.  I also got some mayonnaise they had on sale. Would you believe, they were completely out of the water that was on sale? Since I was able to get in and out (twice) of the store quickly, I also stopped at Big Lots, no one was there.  I wanted to purchase an outdoor resin chair so I could sit outside once in a while, and with my rewards cards, it only costs me $7.99.  They also had the Nutrisystem food on sale today for 10/$5.  I found some heat and serve vegetarian chili, cheese tortellini, and some other soups that I can use in a pinch during Phase 4.  I was going to stop at another Big Lots on my way home but decided my nap was more important.  Once I got back to work, I ate some tuna again.  Problem with the tuna was, I didn't check the ingredients when I purchased it.  I just saw it was Herb and Garlic flavor.  As soon as I put the first bite in my mouth, I immediately felt and tasted the oil.  I checked the label, sure enough, soybean oil was the 3rd listed.  Ergh.  I had a radish since I had bought some of those too (4 bunch for 99 cents).

So now I sit here debating what to eat for dinner.  I had decided early to make cabbage rolls but I will have to make a few since it would be pointless to just cook one.  Yesterday, I didn't cook my chicken like I said I was going to but I separated it, froze it, and had steak and broccoli for dinner.  I know broccoli is not allowed as well on this protocol but if I hadn't eaten it, there would have been no room in the freezer for it after I put the rest of my steaks and chicken in there. Hmmm, that reminds me, I need to figure out how I'm going to get that whole loaf of cheese into the freezer, even after I cut it down to 2 pound blocks, there's no room!!  I have 1 pound unsalted butter blocks frozen as well since I can't have any on P2.  That shall all change on Thursday!!!  I'm so excited because I can have  all that kefir I have in the fridge!! While still making more, haha!!  Alright, I'm off to the kitchen to make my dinner.
