Yesterday I ventured to the doctor to follow up on my weight issues. According to the doc’s scale, I was down 4lbs! YAY! I know I’m down more than that because I typically weigh in the morning before eating or drinking anything and after going to the bathroom.
Good news! My doc said I picked the perfect program to be on. She even mentioned that this is what she’s been trying to tell me but it just took time for it to click. I’m worried about what my body will do when the 21 days is over. I’m definitely going to try to keep up the detox plan to some degree. I’ve got to allow myself some sort of felxibility in the plan and to eat things that I enjoy but don’t really fall within the program. For example, I REALLY want chick-fil-a! Yum
My side effects are subsiding though I’m still getting mental cravings. I just want something in my mouth. I heard on the audio support today that chewing on a cinnemon stick works. Not something that interests me at all.
Anyway, here are my meals yesterday:
M1 (pre-workout): 8 almonds, half a banana
M2: 2 hard boiled eggs, 4 slices bacon, 2 cups coconut milk, 1 scoop whey protein (which I ended up shaking half all over myself)
M3: Perfectly grilled chicken, mixed greens with balsamic vinegarette, Faux-tatoes
M4: 1 small green apple with almond butter
M5: Flank steak with peppers and onions and cucumber with olive oil and lemon juice.
I also tried the Chia N’Oatmeal this weekend too. Soooo good! (note the cookbook in the background 😉
