Remember on my first day I talked about rewarding myself when I reached a "goal" but I did not know what that goal would be? I would like to think it would be in pounds lost, but instead I have decided it will be Valentine's Day. On the 13th Captain is taking me to dinner at The Old Firehouse in Old Sacramento and it will be a luxurious meal. So that will be my splurge and reward. I am looking forward to it. But just because I'm rewarding myself doesn't mean I will be eating like a pig all day, just for that one meal.
On Valentine's Day we are going to Mt. Vernon Vineyards where they are having an evening event with appetizers and barrel tasting. Of course there will also be wine. This girl is happy she can have a glass of wine and still stay on track. Last time we went to one of these events it was great and I know there are options for me with their appetizers.

Then it was off to New Earth grocery store so I could buy some golden flax seed flour. I'm very excited to try crispy baked green bean fries and a different peanut butter cookie recipe. Well, actually it's an almond butter cookie recipe, but any nut butter will work! Would you like the recipe?
Low Carb Almond Butter Cookies
1 cup Almond butter (I used crunchy)
1 cup Stevia (or sweetener of choice)
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 tbsp. Coconut flour
|Don't they look divine???|
And that was my dinner for tonight. I ate 4 of them. I also snacked on some broccoli and pea pods for a little freshness in my life. Did I mention that I am also taking my vitamins, iron and vitamin D, too? Yep, need to cover my bases.
So that is my day. It has come to an end. Remember,
As for me, I am taking this one day at a time.
