Okay I am losing days left and right. I thought I only had 2 days to post about, but I actually have 3… let me start by saying on Sunday night I went to the cheesecake factory for an appreciation dinner. I did not eat any bread! I did not eat any cheesecake! Oh the will power it took. I shared some edamame with a friend and ordered the thai lettuce wraps! I was so proud. I then went and walked for about 45 minutes with one of my mentor moms to help burn off a few calories.
Monday, May 22, Day 78
Breakfast Sausage and egg
Lunch Crackers, light laughing cow cheese
Dinner Dreamfield pasta with a turkey spaghetti sauce.
I saw a weight gain on Monday which wasn’t surprising as I know the sodium content from the cheesecake factory was pretty high. Still 209 was frustrating.
Tuesday, May 23, Day 79
Okay so let this day be marked as a semi-fail. I wanted to cheat so bad all day. It was aweful. I did great for breakfast, but for lunch Olivia wanted pad thai so we went with a friend. Then after shopping I swung into Artic Circle to get Olivia the ice cream she earned for being good. I ordered onion rings for myself… UGH! why did I cheat AGAIN! Then for dinner I really wanted to order a pizza and was craving something sweet. I was like NO you are not going to self sabotage. So I ate my veggie soup as I had planned and had a small serving of Halo Top ice cream.
Wednesday, May 24, Day 80
Have to fight the sweet cravings. AND I realized I needed to eat more veggies.
Breakfast: Ham, eggs, Okra, and strawberries.
Lunch: Salad and a tortilla pizza (I was still craving pizza and this helped!)
Snack: Turkey, carrots, and half a cutie (the kids asked for the other half and it was the last one.)
Dinner: Chicken, Sweet Potato, Oat, and Kale soup. This is one of my favorite THM soup recipes.
To help with the sugar cravings I drank my GGMS today. I got back on track and I am ready to go. I have one week to get to 206.4 or less to win my diet bet for May and round 1 of my 6 month challenge.
Start by taking 1 step towards a healthier you today. I am determined to get healthy for me, my husband, and my kids! If I can do this so can you!
