Writing this post, I can’t believe how much can happen during a week. Last week I went to a Freyrfaxi with my husband to see and learn what Asatru was about. I have never felt so much at home. I saved all my weekly points for that night. Those people were so hospitable and there was so much food. I made my cheese and bread and brought thinking I can at least eat what I brought just in case. I worried WAY too much. Since the group asked to bring food that was personally hunted or grown or a person knew the source there was so much I could eat. It’s the mead that I didn’t know how to account for. I figure since it’s made like wine I would just double those points. I feasted on pork, fresh fruits, and vegetables, and I even indulged on a cookie. I felt a peace that I haven’t felt before.
I dreaded today…I felt like I hadn’t lost and could have possibly gained. I didn’t lose as much and I think that there are a couple of reasons why. 1- I wasn’t as active. I met my 70 activity points but one I met those I didn’t put any effort forward to go over and 2- I don’t think I ate enough of my weeklies. The problem is that a lot of the food that I ate at the gathering I had to guess about. If I was under then I wasn’t going to drop the weight like I had started doing 3 weeks ago. My weekend isn’t as active just the grocery pick up, some errands, oh! And my son’s birthday party. Yup, he’s getting older and so am I. Luckily, the bowling alley will be doing the clean up so I will be enjoying more time with my son.
This week, I lost a pound making it a total of 22 lbs. I’ll try harder next week.
What I LOVED:
I had a BUNCH of tomatoes from my garden that needed to be cooked. I threw that with some onion and garlic making a quick and chunky tomato sauce. I added tomato paste to add a little umph to the sauce which added my point. The butternut squash noodles serve as the bed of noodles that I would use for the sauce. It was so GOOD! Totally underestimated the whole veggie noodle trend. I was going to use a little parmesan but unfortunately someone in the house at it. Guys-TRY THE VEGGIE NOODLES!
