I have never spent so much money on groceries in my life, but, I have also spent much less on eating out! I spent a lot of time cooking and cleaning, this means giving time to myself, something I have not been very good at in the past.
- Fruit Salad
- Zucchini stir-fry
- Bone Broth Veggie Soup
and in between jobs I had to be innovative. I stopped at the local Wawa and got hard boiled eggs and a Greek yogurt. Twice I ate veggies with eggs, and an ill fated steak bowl. It was terrible and not worth the calories. What I learned was I enjoyed the simple hard boiled eggs and yogurt, better than any of the above. I enjoyed my own cooking and began to really crave fruits and veggies.
This week, now that I am a bit better I want to get in my 30 min of activity again while maintaining the cooking and prep time needed to do this detox.
I am trying to move into a lifestyle change and really bring about significant health and weight loss. I will do a 5 days on 2 days off. Even when off I still made better choices.
It was my Birthday on Friday and I went into Panera with every intention of getting a wonderful cupcake. But I walked out and made some pancakes instead. I could not justify 770 calories for four bites of cupcake. And the pancakes were awesome!! I added blueberries, a banana, cinnamon and walnuts and had pancakes for two days. They may become a regular weekend treat.
Tonight I made more fruit salad and already packed it for work lunches and will make a salad as soon as I am off of here. All of the extra fruit got bagged into the freezer for future smoothies!
I did loose a total of 6 pounds and am looking forward to much more.
Many blessings all!
