Wow, @globalhiker , sounds like my kitchen, with trays of veggies roasting in the toaster oven. For the "I gotta nibble on something" times, how about homemade kale chips ? Good with ethnic spices, and they keep crispy.
My proteins [including fish and venison ] are usually served on a bed of romaine and other colorful greens instead of my beloved carbs. I almost don't miss them. Almost.
Bonus...a nice glass of vino is really not compatible with the sprinkle of vinegar or lemon on my greens. Less alcohol !!
P.S. don't confuse iceberg lettuce with real food....

Tonight will be 6/6. Some significant challenges this week (free wine at an event, work stress) but I've managed ok. I'm racing tomorrow morning so resisted the temptation to open Friday night wine, which always used to be my routine. I might have a drink tomorrow depending how the race goes.

Day 6 AF done! Friday nights are always a bit tough. Husband calls at 5pm to ask if I want anything from the store and my brain automatically thinks YES, WINE. But I stop myself and respond No, I am fine. I hang up. Then I have a very strong impulse to call him back and say, wait, it's Friday, can you pick up wine?
But I negotiate with myself and say No, silly. Because if you start Friday, you know you will "blow it" for the weekend and drink Saturday and Sunday. Then you will feel bad because you blew your monthly goal and you will just rationalize that you will start next month. Quit thinking stupid.
So I didn't call him back. 30 seconds or less of really strong irritability passes then I pour myself a cranberry juice in my wine glass and distracted myself by cooking dinner. The whole mental struggle passed. We had a happy dinner at home at forgot all about wine.
