Yesterday’s Menu (08/11/11)

If you’d asked me last night how I felt about my menu, I would’ve said, “While it wasn’t a particularly nutritious day, I ate what I’d planned to eat and I didn’t eat any off-plan foods.” This morning though, I’m thinking that I’m feeling so dreadful because I ate too much dairy at dinner.  I’m up 2 lb this morning, I feel shaky and just “sick”, and I’m having all sorts of digestive issues along with some nausea.  I know that aged cheese doesn’t agree with me, and although it could be a coincidence, I doubt it.  I’m still proud of what I accomplished though, despite a few complicating factors.

I’m also very proud of myself in the “pop addiction” department.  I drank just 18 oz of Pepsi Max yesterday.  The rest of the day, I sipped (and sometimes guzzled) my water that had a bag of peppermint tea sitting in the bottom of it.  It’s amazing how much more fluid I drink when there’s a hint of peppermint.  It’s not sweet, so sweet isn’t what I’ve been after in my beverage.  It just tastes refreshing, and it really does help to quench my thirst.


  • 2 grilled Johnsonville mild Italian sausage links



  • braised pork ribs
  • steamed, mashed cauliflower with cheddar cheese and sour cream


  • 1/4 c Planters Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt

Certainly not a nutritious day, but again, I’m thrilled that I didn’t eat foods off plan even if the menu was pretty pitiful.
