Well I'll be thinking of you having a lovely dinner while I'm under the squat bar!

I am wishing you the best of luck on your meet. Last year it was weight training and pizza. This year is sushi and bowling lol.

You won't ever disappoint as long as you give it your all and it is what you want to do.

Finished off the crustless pumpkin pie and I don't feel one bit guilty! 746 calories throughout the entire day along with 3c fiesta black beans and 1c brown rice, a whole sweet potato, a whole russet potato, 1 serving of mac and chreese, my overnight oats, and double protein shake. Usually on Thanksgiving I would have had an entire Field Roast roast, 3 sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, 4-6 dinner rolls, cranberry sauce, 2 slices pumpkin pie, 2 slices apple pie and a slice of cherry pie....

Yum, you have eaten well! Probably a dumb question but what's a double protein shake? You just put an extra shot in it or something?

Yeah just 2 servings of protein. I think the pie and the fiesta beans and rice were the best part of the entire meal. Might throw in another protein shake for good measure or just pass out....

Errands ran and tried to hit up the bulk items, fresh veggies, and got coconut to make milk, and some other stuff. I spent more than I wanted to..... But I think I am set for about 2 weeks. Ordered another 4 lbs of protein to go with the 3 1/2 I have now. Will be checking into food stamps and food pantries next week for a little bit of assistance. Keeping a positive outlook on this. I really did need a vacation from work but ready to get back into a routine. Looks like I am going to the hockey game alone tonight since none of my friends seem to either be in town or are ignoring the free ticket. Oh well! I will have fun by myself!

Making my own coconut milk will be cheaper than buying it

The hockey game was awesome! The company I ended up keeping was even better. I got to sit with a group from the gym including my delightful yoga instructor and her husband. I finally made a batch of coconut milk and will see how it is in the morning in my overnight oats. I know it will have some healthy fats and I might actually not have to use my coconut oil since it produced some just from blending up the coconut. Will probably use that for my hair to help keep my hair soft and shiny :) I might soak some dates next time and use that water in the milk for a hint of sweet. BTW I really should invest in a better blender......
