Yahoo! Today I am eating my 7th day of the 21 day fix diet. Eating Clean and Exercising each day.
But I am on a roll now and it's pretty much a breeze and I don't find it hard to eat the approved foods. I am even starting to get a little creative.
It was a rocky start trying to figure out what to eat each day. The containers help a lot.
Today we are having my son over for his birthday, I am fixing lasagna, I am going to make me a 21 day approved lasagna recipe. I will share this on another post. Last night I made chocolate chip cookies, my favorite cookies in the whole world and yellow cake and chocolate frosting cupcakes. I did not eat any, nor will I today.
You know what the best part is?.....drum roll...I've lost 5 lbs in one week. I think it goes fast the first week, because it is a drastic change in your eating habits. I was hungry the first 4 days, but I am fine now. I have purchase the Shakeology, but I have not received it yet. Will get it Monday. It's full of vitamins and is suppose to really helpful in this Eating Clean Plan. We will see, it is a bit pricey.
This is my dinner one evening. I had 2 proteins that needed to be eaten that evening and all my veggies and I was able to eat 8 olives. I had a nice salad made with crumbled cooked ground turkey, 1 egg sliced, 8 olives, onions, and bell peppers from my garden, a little other veggies as well, kale and broccoli shredded. I use Red Wine Vinegar as my dressing.
Here is a breakfast I eat many days...
Half Banana, Whole Wheat Waffle and other Fruit, the fruit I eat must fit into this container and counts as one fruit for the day, I get two. I also had two teaspoons of peanut butter on top my waffle, yummy! The waffle is 1 carb, I get two and it is from the yellow container.
So as you can see if you are interested in losing some weight in 21 days, well you can do it!
I wanted to lose 12 lbs at least, I am up to 5 with two weeks to go.
Exercising each day. I am not a big person, so I cannot lose much more than 12 lbs. It will nice to fit back into my favorite pants and stop stress eating.
I use Autumn Calabrese's Videos that came with the book and containers.
I might add that I have never eaten this healthy in all my life. Never. I am huge sugar fan, love ice cream, candy and cookies and all sorts of things that are not clean foods. I am doing this for health reasons and to lose weight and to tone up. I have been very stressed out after moving here and taking care of my mom, it has been very hard on me emotionally. I just felted ill and I needed to do something and fast.
Happy Blessed Sunday!
