Back on track this Easter morning

Happy Easter to everyone so inclined. It's a cloudy, rainy Easter Sunday in Central California, but I see a break in the clouds coming up. We're headed to my sister's today. I'm bringing my opinions, aloof boys plus one vegetarian girlfriend, salmon fillets, spanakopita, galactoboureko and wine. My mom's bringing tiropita and judgement. My sister is providing lamb, salad, bread and the bedlam only her brood can bring. It should be fun!

(I am going to let you Google all the Greek dishes...)

I'm happy to report that the Intermittent Fasting and I are getting along just fine. I just weighed in at 309 lbs. And my caloric counting hasn't been too consistent. My range over the last week has been anywhere from 1400 to 2100 calories. But I'm strictly keeping the eating between noon and 8 p.m. I'm going to be able to enjoy Easter dinner. But I think I'm going to skip the wine. Maybe. Depends how much judgement my mom packed in her purse.

I've taken to walking everywhere this week. To the store, to Pilates, to get my nails done. I'm so happy I'm living where I am, very centrally located between downtown and shopping. I never want to move from here!

So, got to go make the syrup for the galactoboureko. I'm going to allow myself a single piece, maybe half a piece. Depends on how good it tastes! I don't think high holy day calories count. Right?

Love spanakopita and moussaka and keftedes. Mmmmm. I used to regularly make an omelette that is similar to one I used to eat at an authentic little Greek place down south near the Orthodox Cathedral: an omelette that's very thin (almost crepe thin) with chopped tomatoes and oregano and feta on top. Drizzled with olive oil. OMG. Could die, so good.

I bought feta to make some again...just needed to debloat from too much salt on Sunday. salt breaks. :)

I IF, and I'm hoping to continue to get good results from it.

Let's keep at it! Onward!
