Impressions:

Another morning where I woke up feeling alert and energized. I totally wanted to weigh myself but I couldn’t because the scale is gone. I guess that’s a really good thing since I have little willpower to the scale. Well that’s not true…when I’m eating badly, I can ignore the scale quite fine. Interesting.

Went back to the old stand-by of eggs over veggies this morning. It’s quick, easy and delicious.  Plus it keeps me full until lunch. I’m noticing that I really feel good in-between meals…no lightheaded-ness, dizziness or crankiness. I feel more alert and productive.

Sean went golfing today, which left the house really quiet most of the day. In the early evening I went out to the store and picked up some more spinach and eggs.  We’re eating a LOT of spinach.

For dinner, I made andouille sausage that we got from our local farm, but it was too spicy for me.  It was perfect for Sean though.  He had that and I pulled out some leftover chicken.

I’m still going to bed way too late. But I sleep pretty soundly and without getting up in the middle of the night.  I notice in the morning too that I just feel rested. It’s nice.

This whole process has been really interesting.  I noticed that I feel so great not tracking every single calorie or worrying about eating too much. I’m getting clearer cues from my body on when I am full and when I need to eat. I wish I had tried this a long time ago.
