BLE Day 58

Today was a very relaxing day!  It’s Sabbath so I went to church today. Somehow I totally forgot to eat breakfast even though I knew exactly what I was going to eat!

When church was over I had to grab my friend who got me going with BLE in the first place. It was selfie time and time to document some progress.


Between the two of us, we’ve lost 36 lbs and still counting!  We both feel fantastic and I will forever be grateful to her for talking to me about her new food plan, even though I thought she was nuts and it took me a month to finally wrap my head and heart around the idea and get on board. 


For potluck today, I eyeballed my food, ate in my categories, except that there were no fat options by the time I went through line.  Since I had failed to eat breakfast, I decided to eat some rice for lunch, otherwise there would have been very little food on my plate. 


(Those strawberries were ours, frozen, from last year’s garden!)
For supper, I had a grab and eat fast meal because I was feeling lazy and I wanted to eat that peach that was planned for breakfast. The peach with the yogurt was heavenly and the crunch of nuts was perfect. 


The only problem was that when I was done I was still super hungry because I had grossly undereaten today, so I grabbed a pickle and called it good enough. 


I’m not sure how I want to handle a skipped meal. I think I’ll leave my plan in pencil and not go over it with pen like I normally do. Today was a little off, but tomorrow is always a new day!

That’s a wrap!!

BLE Day 57

I’m blogging the day after because I was uninspired by yesterday’s food. It’s the result of not prioritizing meal prep time in my day so I threw together lunch and supper and they were definitely blah. 

The day had a good start, but I deviated from my lunch and supper plans. 


I had to meet a parent at my classroom so I packed a sack breakfast. 

It was easy and good and my staple breakfast of Shredded wheat, yogurt, nuts, and fruit. I was able to grab one of my yogurt cups, so that was a bonus!

I worked in my classroom ALL DAY LONG and ignored the fact that I skipped lunch and felt the pang of hunger all afternoon.  Dealing with that experience prompted this post in the BLE unofficial FB group. 


Of course, I didn’t actually feed my body on time, but I dealt with the hunger feeling by just ignoring it for as long as I could. 

When I finally got home, I was starving and threw together this “lunch” (it was 4pm) in less than 5 minutes. 

I was also in our basement yesterday and grabbed a jar of garden grown black beans that we grew a couple years ago. I sorted out the lighter colored ones and now I’m ready to find a yummy, simple recipe for cooking black beans. We have a lot of these and I want to start using them!!

By the time I was hungry for supper, it was around 10pm. It was another throw together meal. I ended up eating just the patty with salsa and the tomatoes. The celery and garden cucumber were both a little bitter, and since it was so late, I just really wasn’t hungry anyway, so I didn’t finish eating them. 

My core exercises were easy again, so that was a positive aspect of my health/food day!


I already knew what I wanted for breakfast…a big fat peach!  My family has been devouring the box we got from Costco so I decided I better hurry up and eat at least one before they’re gone!

That’s a wrap!
