Haven't been around because there's just too much going on, but I am still trying to do my best not to go too far off plan. I ate some chocolate chip cookies when I was out for dinner on Thursday night and I didn't even get through the night before my innards protested severely. I seem to be OK now, as I was very very careful about what I ate yesterday, and I will do the same today. But when my family is here from France, we eat out all the time, and tracking is very difficult. Today we're going out for brunch, but I picked the place so I know I can get food that's good for me. And tonight I plan to eat at home and have salmon and veggies. So today will be OK. I hope I'll be able to keep things under control tomorrow as well. It's very challenging, but it is real life... it's life the way one has to live the world with people who don't have to monitor everything they eat, so I think it's actually good for me to work this through. Hope I still feel the same when I get on the scale in a couple of weeks.

Took a few days off from logging -- but you know, that's never a good idea. It always leads to consuming more calories than I should. But I think I'm back on track now. Got bloodwork over the weekend to try to identify why I've been having such bad leg cramps at night. My thyroid and potassium levels are both OK, so the doctor thinks it's dehydration. I'm going to make a real effort to drink more the next few days to see if that helps, but if I'm still having problems, I'm going to have to get back to the doctor to explore what else could be the problem. Meanwhile, I really need to up my discipline level in the diet department. I really want to lose another 5 pounds by Labor Day, and for me that takes a lot more effort than I have been putting out the past two weeks. Need some diet buddy support!

Somewhat higher calorie count today thanks to breakfast out with a friend. We went to a place with no available fruit, which is a little odd this time of year, so I indulged in a bowl of oatmeal with my omelet and skipped the toast and potatoes. Usually I do omelet and berries or melon, but no such luck today. Because I had oatmeal at breakfast, I skipped grain at dinner and had roasted carrots and -- drumroll please -- one-half cup of oven roasted broccoli. I have not eaten broccoli in 3 years. I have been really anxious to find out if I could tolerate a small portion of broccoli or cauliflower, so as to relieve my growing veggie boredom problem. So I got a small container of broccoli florets all cut and washed, and roasted it up with olive oil and seasoned sea salt. I measured out a portion for myself and sent the rest home with my downstairs neighbor so I wouldn't be tempted to eat anymore until I've gone through a few days and know whether I was able to digest it. If I can, next week I'll try out cauliflower. If this works out, then I can do it once a week. The Whole Foods salad bar always has broccoli and cauliflower, so I could buy just a servings worth and not waste anything. I can't believe I'm getting so excited about cruciferous vegetables!
