I may as well be done with this challenge. I ended up cheating on days 80, 81, and 82. I had social activities on each of those days, and did not eat clean. Well, I suppose I should cut myself some slack by saying I usually eat clean for breakfast, lunch, and snacks, but come evening, I have been having unclean dinners and alcohol. It's not terrible. However, the QUANTITY of food I have been eating lately is a little ridiculous. For example, on day 80, there was an Italian food night at the dining halls of the university where I work. I got a free meal and just went insane sampling pretty much one of every single thing they offered. It really was enough to feed three people.
Last night I went to a dinner party. I cooked the main dish - the same vegetarian shepherd's pie I've been eating frequently since St. Patrick's Day. I knew I wanted something fairly easy and cheap to make, since I was cooking for a bunch of people. My Irish ancestors had a knack for that. :) I keep meaning to document how to make this dish and post the recipe on here, but honestly I got so carried away cooking that I forgot to take pictures or really keep track of what I was throwing in. One of these days I will post it, I promise!
I really am not quite sure why I am still keeping track of days on this TBT challenge. I think yesterday should have been day 90 and the end of the challenge, but I had decided to push it back for a week because of my vacation. Well, now I've basically cheated every day for the two weeks since then, so I don't think any of it should really count. I'm not sure what to do, other than I know I need to try to reel things in with the overeating and drinking too much. I suppose I will probably go to day 90 and take some photos, although these last two weeks have seen a definite step backwards in the progress I'd made previously. :( Ug.
I didn't eat much today. That was on purpose.
Coffee with 1/2&1/2
Chickpeas with roasted potatoes, turnips, carrots, and Indian seasoning
Blood orange and a couple strawberries
Chia seed pudding made with skim milk, 1 tablespoon agave nectar, pumpkin pie spices
Roasted potato skins with olive oil, some parmesan cheese (I saved the peels from all the potatoes I peeled yesterday for the shepherd's pie. I just tossed them with olive oil and baked them for about half an hour until they got nice and crispy.)
30 minutes of random bodyweight exercises
