Well, hi everyone. Bari here. Back home. And I’m doing OK. Making time for exercise, eating very well. The first thing I did when I got home was I went through my kitchen and got rid of all the junk. Just threw it out. Actually, no that’s not true. The first thing I did even before I got to my house, is I stopped at the supermarket and bought myself Chai Tea (decaf), my new favorite!, oatmeal, a carton of liquid egg whites, a couple of apples, low-sodium deli turkey, and a pint of grape tomatoes. This way I new I’d have what to grab my first couple of days home. I also bought some soups from Deerfield to bring home with me, so I have those for the fridge and the freezer to grab quickly without having to fuss or cook. They’re really coming in handy.
I also pre-seasoned a bunch of chicken breasts and put them in ziplock bags for the fridge and freezer, so I can grab them and throw them on the grill or in the oven quickly – they’re already washed and seasoned, so easy! I realized I had to make things easy for myself, and so far, so good. I mixed up a batch of no-oil salad dressing like the one at Deerfield and that’s in my fridge now too.
I have to go out and buy a scale. I don’t have one, and I know the weight on a home scale will probably be slightly different than the one at Deerfield – just because every scale is slightly different, so I’m going to try not to stress about that.
At any rate, here I am, I’m on my way. I’ll write again soon.
