One Class done and Three to Go!

I just got done eating this delicious meal for dinner. Just love this dinner and it is so quick and easy to make. Probably takes a total of about 15 minutes to cook, gotta love that. Plus I think you get a nice size amount of food. I great satisfying dinner after a very busy, tiring day.
Last night I prepare my lunch for today. I decided to have this delicious salad. I had the lettuce in a separate container and then I just add the toppings when I was ready to eat. I ended up eating my lunch in my car. We got an hour for lunch which was enough time to drive home and come back. They had picnic table and if it would have been nice out I would have done that.
The lunch was great and one I really enjoy.
Class was good and a little boring but I am looking forward to going up to bed early tonight and ready and reviewing what I learned today and start in on the homework that we will need to have done before Thursday class. I love learning and it was nice to dust the cobwebs of the old brain.
I ended up getting up pretty early this morning not sure if I was nervous about the class or what. So I was able to shower do a little Internet stuff and then sit down to a wonderful bowl of polenta. This is a great breakfast. Just love the texture of polenta, it is very similar to cream of wheat. I topped it with cherries, hazelnuts and agave nectar. Great breakfast.
I have been pre-planning all my meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for the week. It does take some time and planning but it SO worth it. I have a little book that I put what I am going to have for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. So I at the end of the day I just open it to the next day and know what I am going to have for breakfast the next morning. Just makes less stressful and after I have planned the week of menus I make a list of all the things I will need to get from the grocery store. At times I do some switching but I know that I have everything in the house to make all the meals planned. I also do this for the boys for their dinners. I am hoping that by doing this I am saving us a little money as well.
The weight has been great! I have been able to stay to my eating plan quite well. From time to time I do some eating but I have been picking fruit or vegetables when I do and it hasn't seem to affect my weight at all. This morning I was at an all time low at my home scale, 145. I don't even remember the last time I every weighed that. I am thinking maybe back in high school. I am feeling fabulous and thrilled with this new way of eating. I look forward to being able to share with others who may next help or are interested in the "switch"
Well off to finish the meal planning and grocery list and then heading to bed early to do some reading and get a good night sleep. Hoping that I will be able to train with my trainer tomorrow waiting to get a text from him to see where he can fit me.

Well even if there were cobwebs on the Brain, the spiders who put them there would long since have died of hunger, because there's no flies on you :-p :-p

It's good to see you're still moving in the right direction weight wise.

Take care and best wishes.
