Not this time.
My poor, sweet, awesome husband had to do it. Super Dad was super sick one night, went to court the next day to advocate for a child, pro-bono as Guardian ad Litem; came home early to make us all toast for dinner, and continued to plow through an immensely heavy work load. All while studying for another bar exam.
I was humbled. (And thankful!)
And now, if we can all collectively touch wood, I will tell you: We are feeling MUCH better. My plan going forward is thus:
Breakfast: Fruit smoothie with yogurt
Lunch: Salad with hard-boiled egg
Dinner: Veggie-based, low-carb; occasional chicken or turkey
-sufficiently allowing for creativity
Snack One: Nuts
-high fat, but sustaining; fights hunger
Snack Two: Hummus & veggies
Not so revolutionary, I know. But, with reasonable portions, it keeps calorie consumption below 1200/day, achieves my goal of cutting added sugar and refined carbohydrates, is low-fat but filling with plenty of protein, and increases my raw vegetable intake with a daily salad. I'll also be limiting alcohol to special occasions.
A nice long walk/run on the treadmill and my favorite yoga video, alternating days for exercise.
This is totally doable. And totally in line with my New Year's resolution to just do what I know I ought to do. This is the "You Know What's Good for You, So Eat It" diet!
