Not the best week at sticking to THM. I had two meals out at friends, one of which was a pizza party, which is pretty much as bad as it gets in THM land. I just don’t want to be ‘that guest’ who is a pain to cook for. Unless someone is really interested in the way I’m eating and has asked if they could make something specially for me, I just shut up and eat what is put in front of me.
I failed to buy enough THM food for myself to last over the Easter break, so I overdid it on the carbs again I had to resort to sandwiches one day (the supermarkets shut in NZ on Good Friday and Easter Sunday), and I also had some roast potato and kumara with our special Easter Sunday meal. After eating bread I noticed I got really tired. Interesting, especially as there are no preservatives in our home made bread, which can often be what causes fatigue in some people.
But I have been back on plan for several days and am branching out into THM bread, making Cheesy Rolls and Pan Bread. Everything has been really simple – S breakfasts, E lunches and mostly S dinners.
Giving Trim Healthy Mama a go for two months was a New Year’s resolution of mine. I’m really proud of myself for sticking with it. Am I going to continue? You bet! Eating the THM way hasn’t been difficult and has been a source of some delicious, nutritious recipes. I haven’t always gotten things right, but hell, who does? I continue to be inspired by the weight loss testimonies that appear on THM Facebook pages daily. Not just from people who needed to loose a few pounds, but from people who were seriously overweight, and who, like me, have struggled with their weight for years. So here’s to more weeks of THM!
