Meal #1: 9am – Coffee Smoothie: 1 c plain, low-fat kefir, 1 c frozen “Swiss water process” organic decaf coffee cubes, 4 oz frozen peaches, 20 drops stevia; 2 slices Ezekial toast, 1 T butter/ghee
(This smoothie tastes better with soymilk)
Party tonight for a friend moving away – already thinking about how to handle the food. I know it will be healthy vegetarian food, so I can count on some vegetables there, but will they have lots of oil or nuts mixed in? I probably should bring my whole meal, then I can substitute something there, if it really is in line with my plan.
Will bring my MetroMint orangemint water to have a special beverage, knowing I like that when I’m at a party.
Meal #2: 2pm – 1/2 c black beans, 2 c salad, 1T chipotle ranch dressing, 1/2 c corn tortilla chips, 4 oz chicken, 2 oz jack cheese
Meal #3: 7pm – 1/2 c black beans, 2 c salad, 1T salsa, 1 oz jack cheese, EAS protein bar (maltitol sweetened)
Ended up eating dinner before I went to the party, then tired, so I left before the big feast. The MetroMint water was a good choice.
Meal#4: 12:00 – Ambrosia: 1 c plain, low-fat yogurt, 1 t coconut oil, 5 oz mandarin orange slices, 20 drops stevia
20 mins weeding
Visualizing feeling satisfied with my own food at the party, and just enjoying the company, knowing the food I bring to eat is all I need to eat.
Reading For Today
Meeting at OA HOW
Meeting at RFA
I’m more highly motivated than ever after the meeting. I had a taste of serenity for the first two months of eating very strictly, and now I’m feeling I’ve dropped down in my quality of life since I let the strictness go, and it sucks! I am ready to let go of alcohol to regain my abstinence.
I’m also tired of having only a few days or weeks of back to back abstinence. While I may not follow the strict RFA plan, it really shouldn’t be that hard to qualify as abstinent from sugar, flour and wheat.
