I think I forgot to write a post yesterday! So sorry. So, I’ll start with day 8. Yesterday I felt ok. Still not crazy with energy, but improving. I haven’t really been craving anything. It’s weird. I figured it would be much harder. For breakfast I had my new fave boiled egg with avocado and tomato. Then I finished off the stir fry and strawberries for lunch. For dinner I made a chicken Thai dish from the Well Fed cookbook. It was good! Had grilled chicken, green beans, mango, bell pepper, cashews, and sunshine sauce (a spicy almond butter based sauce). I took pictures of my food, but my computer is not cooperating! Maybe later.
Today’s new theme?? FOOD TASTES GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! Want your food to taste better? Just take sugar out of your diet. Wow!!! My strawberries are the best, most sweetest strawberries ever! My plain sweet potato this morning was out of this world good. And some grapes this afternoon made my mouth water like mad crazy! lol My food today was 2 boiled eggs and a roasted sweet potato, lunch was leftover Thai chicken and strawberries, and for dinner I made Scottish eggs (boiled eggs wrapped in sausage) and roasted Brussel sprouts. I dipped my Scottish eggs in my homemade mayo/mustard.
I helped my daughter make homemade brownies today. She’s turning into quite the little baker. It was kinda hard once they started smelling good, but I resisted. I made her promise to make another batch when I could enjoy them.
I also wanted to talk about a gym I’ve been going to since May 1st. It’s a crossfit like gym, where there are no treadmills/ellipticals to speak of. Only boot camp style classes that are very challenging. To quote Tony Horton “I hate it, but I love it”. At first I started going MWF and ran at home TThSat. Since last week, I’ve been going everyday. We do a lot of running in our workouts, so it helps me not to miss it that much. I’m still running on Saturdays (although my measly 3 miles felt horrible). These workouts push me harder than anything I ever made myself do at home. For instance, today I did 120 push ups! And not girl push ups, but the manly man kind. It was torture, but I did it. I hope it will help me become stronger and I’m hoping this new way of eating will help that as well. I’m there every morning at 5 am without fail. Ready for more
torture fun. It’s good to see how far you can push your body.
Tomorrow I’ll be in double-digit days!
