Day 14 LM - 119 (+2.9, + 2.3 of LDW)


Steak day!

I think on some level I was pushing my limits on purpose to see if I could get away with some eating without needing to correct. Well, I pushed past the limit. I think I was okay until dinner. I ate a LOT of cantaloupe and watermelon for breakfast and lunch, along with those turkey sausages, and was doing fine. Dinner I reheated some pasta, only I put cheese on the top and baked it kind of like a lasagna. I really wasn't going to try pasta just yet, but thought you know, it is such a treat to sit down with my family and have us all eating the same meal. It probably would have been okay too, had I stuck to one serving. I had 2 and I know it threw me over my calorie limits. That and some wine. I'm sure the combination of it all threw my body into a tailspin. I know I didn't actually gain 2.9 in fat as I didn't consume 10,000 extra calories and I know I can correct this, but I was disappointed nonetheless. Ah well. Live and learn, right?

Have you heard of lasagna made with eggplant or zucchini to replace the pasta? An HCG buddy made it and it reminded of my grandmother who use to make it.
I forgot! Sounds good for a Sunday dinner!

Best of luck with your steak day.

It is just a blip -no worries. You can also make lasagna with spaghetti squash. It may be higher in starch though because it is one of those vegetables that grows natural sugars in its roots but it is very low in calories. Good luck with the steak day!

Thanks all of you! I'm going to need to try these recipes out. I'd like for it to work for the entire family. My kids would go for it - my Dutch husband is far more picky.
