Good Day Reader’s!
I keep thinking it is Monday! Does that happen to you when you have a weekday off from work/school? It just throws me off. I had a nice weekend. My Man and I went out to dinner Friday night at King + Duke. This was our second time and we loved it!
The is continuing with his boot camp. He really seems to be liking it and his coach is says he is getting better. I picked him up from his buddy’s house (he had spent the night) and we went to the gym Saturday morning. I went back to the gym on Sunday and walked on the treadmill for an hour while I watched Downton Abby on my iPad. I could have kept going but I had my second appointment with my Dietitian, Alyssa. I am now on a low crab diet for the next month. I thought I would share with you some of the information I am learning in case you are also interested in jump starting some weight loss.
Alyssa gave me a Low Crab Meal Plan Grocery list. It has all the items I can eat for the next month and a few I can’t eat. I left pork off my protein since I do not eat it.

o Steak, Hamburger, Prime Rib, Filet Mignon, Roast Beef
Free range poultry
