Carb Coma

Well, I made it.  All of Lent with no bread (except for last Sunday, which was communion Sunday and I figured that little piece of bread didn't count) and no deep fried food.

Yay Me!

So this morning -  I had two toaster waffles that were left over in the freezer from Shrove Tuesday, and I made some of my grandmother's soda bread for lunchtime.  I had a nice Easter lunch - I found a little lamb roast at the market on Friday, and so I picked it up and popped it in the oven earlier today.  Usually you can't find a little 2-pound roast, so I was grateful, because I really do love lamb.

And within hours, my body has made it quite clear to me that BALANCE is key . . . Lots of carbs in one day -  probably not best.  I will spare you the gory details, and will let it suffice to say that, at the present time, no one can say I'm full of shit.

Ahem.

Moving on.

:-D

Seriously, it will be so much easier at lunch in the coming days - it's been challenging, and also spendy to avoid bread at lunch every day in the city.  I'm very much looking forward to having a SANDWICH for lunch tomorrow.  Probably from Subway  :-)   And interestingly enough, I'm not craving chips and am thinking I can probably do without them for awhile longer.

Here are some photos from my day in the city yesterday with my friend M.  A fun day in Lincoln Park at the Lincoln Park Zoo, lunch at RJ Grunts (the very first LettuceEntertainYou restaurant), and then some knitting at Starbucks!  It was a lovely day  :-)

And what a beautiful city I live in :-) Zoo_01

And - here's the latest look at the show plants. They don't seem that much bigger to me in the last three weeks, but I'm hanging in and hoping for the best :-) Pre-Show 04

I'm thinking that some time on the treadmill might be a very good plan . . . but I am kinda feeling like a complete day of rest on this beautiful Easter Sunday  :-)

Way to go. It is amazing how quickly our bodies will rebel when we overindulge.
