I've been suffering from what I refer to as "the weekend bloat". It's due to my weekend eating being a tad more free and less regimented when it comes to salts, gluten, and fats. So to be fair, I don't really suffer on the weekend. I enjoy myself immensely. It's the full pound or two of bloat that is in evidence on Monday and often until Wednesday that makes me suffer. I feel all squishy around my mid-section and I think it's really visible in my face. BUT not today. i hopped on the scale this morning and it said I am .2 pounds less than I was on Friday morning! That's not a big loss at all but since I sorta expected it to say I was up two pounds due to bloat, I'm thrilled. I guess this low-cholesterol diet IS good for something besides torturing me.
In other news:
I made the best salad EVER. So simple, healthy, and amazing it taste like one of those bad-for-you meals. It even looks unhealthy. I failed to pick up tomatoes at the store so it was a tad lacking today but generally it tastes like a BLT.
It's just baby romaine lettuce tossed in a balsamic vinegarette and then topped with a half ounce of cheddar cheese, two diced hard-boiled egg whites, and a serving of turkey pepperoni that I crisped up in the oven. It really is delicious! Especially with tomatoes diced as well.
