My husband is back home again! I had to pick him up at midnight at the airport last night. So we slept in late...it was lovely. And my stomach has shrunk so I didn't wake up starving either. I had to work an 8 hour shift today, so I needed to fix dinner for the family before I left and pack something for myself. I went simple. Homemade tuna salad for them. It's my mom's recipe. A family favorite! Tuna, mayo, green apples and dill pickles. I could eat it too if I made some Paleo mayo. Not enough time for that today. I nibbled on a few pieces of tuna though. I ate a banana for breakfast while I was chopping and stirring the salad.
For my breaks at work I brought cherry tomatoes, red grapes, pistachios and an apple. It was another light day but satisfying. When I got home I had 3 boiled eggs. I did get on the scale again because my work pants felt so loose today :) I am down 5 lbs so I feel pretty darn good. After you get used to this new way of eating it gets easier. I feel like I could do this for the rest of my life. Normally on day 12 of any of my past diets I am longing for foods that I am not supposed to have. Taking the processed and sugar and flour out really curbs and controls all that.
