And since I'm dedicated to ONLY weighing on Mondays, then I'll wait. Once I've reached my goal weight, or look, I'll weigh every day as the experts say this helps maintain.

Haven't been very good at counting calories as I've been trying something different. And haven't been to the gym this week since Monday. Monday was intervals and usually once I get on the treadmill and the music is pumping through my ears and my blood starts pumping through my veins, I feel good and energetic.

Not so on Monday. It was ALL a chore. Absolutely soul-crushing. So I just went on a long walk yesterday. I was going to walk again today but I left my purse at home. So now I just want to go home and get it then go to the store. Maybe I'll walk to the store? It's supposed to be a lovely day and I feel really good- alert and healthy. Could eating real food already be making an effect?

In any case, new food thing: Organics and whole foods. Fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meat protein as organic as I can find it. Nothing with additives in the ingredients. No alcohol - or maybe I'll just get a couple of bottles of organic wine and have a single glass every couple of days.

Last night I got up 3 times to pee. No kidding. I didn't drink more water than usual, I have to assume it's the water in the fresh fruits and vegetables... and okay, yeah, TMI and all, but the broccoli (which I love) has been coming back every evening to haunt me.

Tonight: Grilled organic chicken breast, spinach with goat cheese and tomato, roasted cauliflower.

Roasted Cauliflower
(Serves 4, unless there are two of you who find it eminently tasty, in which case it serves 2)

1 head of cauliflower (white, orange, purple, green…any color cauliflower will work well in this recipe)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Chop up a head of cauliflower. Don’t be too compulsive about it—evenly-sized pieces are fine, even if they are not perfect florets.

Put the cauliflower in a roasting pan or baking pan that will withstand high heat and drizzle it with the olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss.

Roast for approximately 30 to 45 minutes, or until the cauliflower is getting well-browned. Do not short-change this step!

Shake the pan once or twice during cooking.

Serve immediately.
