I started the day with another Atkins protein shake (chocolate) made with one cup unsweetened almond milk. Then we went for a half hour walk. I do hope I start building up some endurance soon because I live on a crest and climbing the last stretch home is a killer!
Lunch was a salad with green capsicum (bell pepper), cucumber and cos lettuce with a couple teaspoons of a low fat, low carb Italian dressing and the leftovers from last night's beef stir fry.
For dinner I tried one of Leigh's recipes from her Poonapalooza blog, Lazy Cabbage Casserole, and it was really good! My crockpot must be smaller than hers, it's a five litre round one, so I couldn't fit all the cabbage on top ... I put 1/4 head shredded on the bottom, then the meat mixture, and only had room for about half the remaining 1/4 head. The cabbage on top didn't cook as much as the stuff on the bottom, so next time I'll put it on bottom as well, but we really liked this! Yes, even my hubby who is not on the diet enjoyed it very much. Thanks, Leigh, it's a winner ... two thumbs up! :)
I had forgotten to drink water earlier in the day but from afternoon onward I had plenty. Again I never really felt hungry, nor full ... which is just fine. I feel great and hope to continue with big drops the rest of this week. That's it for now, I'll check in again tomorrow.
