It was a good week. I have the weekend off, yayy!, and my progress on the Quantified Diet is reassuring. I am down 4 pounds, and I'm not eating less, just better. Heck, I'm even drinking wine! (I picked the Whole Foods variant, if you're curious.)
18 days down, just 10 more to go.
Using the MealLogger app is fun, but this week I realized that my soup and salad bowls at home are DRAB. Same reddish-brown color as the table. They do not make for good photos.
So I bought two new bowls today, in order to make prettier pictures and have more fun looking at my food. I also bought a Lekué steam case - I'd been ogling these for a while in the "surly table" catalog.
The last potato needed killing, so I started with the recipe for potato au gratin from the little booklet. Really easy - sliced potato, layered with a sauce of cream, egg yolk, grated cheese, salt and pepper; all put together right in the case, shoved in the microwave for 10 minutes, and DONE.
But the two major accomplishments for the week are this:
- I took the three delicious Italian chocolates that I got from a co-worker, stashed them in the desk drawer, and have not been tempted, even though I look at them regularly, and even though I think of them fondly.
- In the same vein, I bought the bowls at World Market, and marched right past all the Haribo gummy candy, again, without even being tempted.
