Much of the Fast Metabolism Diet is becoming routine for me… the portions, general schedule, and food lists. Today was a hectic day and yet I managed to stay pretty much on track. One unexpected bonus today was that the indoor temperature was much cooler from morning through mid-afternoon; when I’m a little chilly I tend to drink herb tea non-stop so the water requirement was easily met.
I’ve also been dealing with a limited larder this week. Last Friday when I bought groceries I knew I would be away for that conference so I shopped for 2 weeks… this week’s menu features mostly frozen fruits and vegetables or sturdy things like celery, carrots, and apples… no lettuce, baby spinach, raspberries, etc. It took a little thinking to plan out the meals that would work, but has been a good thing in terms of saving me the stress of squeezing in another grocery store run as well as broadening my normal food choices.
