I see it has been a week since I posted. Part of that is due to the fact that we were en route back home and most of it is because I have been eating terribly. On December 1 I decided to take control of my diet and on January 30 I had gained a half a pound. That means not only did I not eat properly for 2 months but that I made negative progress. So I am done with that. No more snacking on chips and wine before dinner, no more eating lots of red meats, no more slathering butter on things. I have got 6 weeks until we leave for our trip to Italy. I would really like to lose 10 pounds!
Oh, ho hum, boring, you might think. But when you are filled with the zeal of accomplishing a goal, this is a mighty fine dinner. John and I split a chicken breast and I cooked up some vegetables. We used our packet gravy. This was a satisfying dinner and afterward I was satisfied with myself.
