I am back to write a quick post on some of my meals I have had in the last few days. Some new, some repeats, but nevertheless I am still holding strong!
Meal 1: 2 eggs, clementine
Meal 2: leftover sautéed chicken, shrimp, and broccoli, carrots.
Snack: "You're the Top" Tuna Salad
Meal 3: 2 eggs, carrots, italian beef breakfast patties
Meal 1: 1 hard boiled egg, Green Machine Naked Juice
Meal 2: 2 hard boiled eggs, pulled pork, and carrots
Meal 3: I really don't remember what I had, it was clearly nothing exciting or fancy!
Meal 1: Crab Cake Benedict
Meal 2: Zucchini Chips, apple
Meal 3: New York strip, baked sweet potatoes, salad
Day 10 (I was busy today and DID NOT eat enough, plus I was out of eggs so breakfast was even less)
Meal 1: 1 hard boiled egg
Meal/Snack 2: Almonds, apple, clementine, Green Machine
Meal 3: Tuna salad adapted from the one above. I made it with tuna, crushed almonds, diced celery, 2 tbsp homemade mayo, a little dijon mustard, splash of apple cider vinegar, hard boiled egg, salt & pepper. DELICIOUS! Plus, it made enough to eat for lunch tomorrow.
My status: I'm still sleeping really well. I feel like I wake up a little more easily these days with a bit more energy, but nothing drastic. My headaches are still there, but much less intrusive into my daily activities. I have definitely lost some weight, not sure how much, but all of my clothes fit better and my stomach is a bit flatter than it normally is. I am debating weighing myself even though it says not to during the program. They tell you not to so that people don't lose motivation to keep going. However, I was never doing this program to primarily lose weight, that would just be an added bonus. So I am not going to quit because of that. I will let y'all know if I decide to weigh myself :)
Proud Moment(s): I have successfully been surrounded by cupcakes, chick-fil-a chicken biscuits, cookies, BBQ nachos, and peanut butter and have not given in at all. It was not easy, but I felt like it was a major accomplishment to literally not give into temptation even once!
Hope you all have had an amazing weekend, and have an even better week.
