Today someone brought cake in at work ... no thank you! Did I mention there is also a vending machine in the kitchen just outside my office? Yeah, not even tempted. Seriously, I feel amazing right now. It's weird ... when I was eating higher carbs I found I was immediately satisfied after eating but was hungry again within an hour or two, and regularly craved things like cookies and chocolate. Now after eating I may not feel full right away, but within 10 or 15 minutes of eating I do ... and then I'm satisfied for hours. That is so much better!
Tonight I had planned to make some chicken kebabs so I had chicken breasts and green bell peppers, zucchini and mushrooms on hand. But when the time came I thought why bother threading everything on skewers, why not just toss it in a roasting pan in the oven? I cut the chicken in chunks and tossed it in a blend of oregano, thyme, garlic and onion powder. Tossed it with the chunked veggies in the pan, drizzled with olive oil and covered the pan with foil. I baked it 30 minutes, then took the foil off and gave it another 10. It was so good!
That's all for now, I'll be back for my official weigh-in on the weekend.
