i really didn't expect to loose any weight while going meat-less for Lent, and actually expected to gain some weight from the slight influx of carbs. and i thought that that was pretty accurate because when i stepped on the scale last week it was about 5 pounds higher than what it usually is.
and then i had a small panic attack.
and then i realized that it was THAT TIME where mother nature tortures women worldwide, which reminded me that i always gain a few pounds of lovely fluid retention during that time.
so this morning was the real test. i hadn't been on the scale in a week. and wasn't optimistic. at all.
but it was about 3 pounds lighter than was it usually is! and then i gave myself a high five. which really just looks like i'm clapping badly.
i've made some yummy meals like spicy black bean burgers. i've had more raw fruits and veggies than humanly possible to consume. i've had a LOT of beans. but one of my favorite little jewels? oh, it's just the simply delightful avocado and honey sandwich on whole wheat bread.
OMG. i'm not even kidding. if you like honey and avocado at all, you have to try this. soooooo tasty. i had it last night for dinner, and i'm doing it again for lunch today!
