That's still a good drop considering how bad I did yesterday.  Since I didn't eat all day and finally at at around 4:30pm, I couldn't stop eating after I started.  I made my pork chops and some quinoa.  I completely forgot I had a 4 pound bag of quinoa, so I finally cooked some with some chopped asparagus.  After I ate I watched the local news and ended up falling asleep sitting up!! I was tired but didn't think I would fall asleep.  Luckily some asshole with a loud muffler drove by and woke me up, scared all my animals but woke me.  I did a few things around the house, played with the dog and cleaned up after my cats.  I forgot I was supposed to do laundry but luckily I found a clean pair of pants and a shirt so I was good for today.  Since I hadn't eaten all day, I ended up eating like there was no end in sight. I started with a glass of almond milk, and man was it sweet tasting, then  I ended up eating 3, yes 3, skinny cow ice cream sandwiches and some of my "crackers".  I finally told myself to stop because it was late and I would regret it in the morning.  I wasn't that disappointed this morning since it was still a lower number than yesterday.  I remembered to have my BAB this morning to avoid that mess that I experienced yesterday.  It is a very good idea to have BAB everyday that you're not on P2 because it really helps later in the day to kill those late afternoon or evening cravings. So I learned my lesson. Oh, while I was packing my BAB this morning, I caught my cat trying to get into my Oreos.  I yelled at him of course, because he had gotten up on the table, but then I realized, he was just trying to help Mama stay focused on her "diet".  I apologized.

While at work today, I began checking on the grocery specials that start today.  I was happy to see that my almond milk is on sale for the whole month.  It's dairy month at Albertson's.  The yogurt is on sale too but I will avoid it because of the high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) used in them   Wal*Mart sells the full fat Greek yogurt that's better, no sugar and full fat.  So I had to go to Albertson's after work to get some deals before they're all gone by Friday.  Yes, I had one more coupon to use up for the refried beans.  I did also get some Fat Boy ice cream sandwiches because it was better for me to get the box of six versus the box of 18 at Sam's.  The turkey bacon is on sale all month, as well, 3 for $5.  I just like turkey bacon because it doesn't curl up as much as regular but it doesn't taste as great.  I need to start loading on Tuesday and Wednesday (work BBQ) and I'm back to P2.  I hadn't realized how long this planned interruption was but I'm ready for P2.  So basically I'll be spending my time eating was isn't allowed on P2 LOL.  I'm going to enjoy another glass of almond milk right now because I need to finish it and make room for more.  I may just have a small hamburger patty for dinner tonight and make a large one for BAB.  Now I'm off to get my coupons and specials organized.
