3 weeks goes by really fast.
& as Ricky asked me, "What happens after you get done with the 21 days?"... I'm sure I'll continue on. I see where people do 'another round' over & over to get where they want to be.
I really do have a goal in mind that I know isn't going to be accomplished in 3 weeks. It's going to take some time. & I may not stick with this the whole time, but I will for awhile. Just to learn these healthy eating habits better - to get them engrained in me.
Someone asked me the other day if I miss things, & the truth, I'm finding I'm doing ok with that.
I'm a bread person. I always said I could do away with ALL other food groups, but give me carbs & I'm good.
(Can I just say, I accidentally wrote "give me crabs"... haha... fixed that quick)
But we were out at dinner last weekend & they brought bread to the table. I did good - didn't want to devour it. I've had crackers in front of me - I haven't touched them. I haven't had pasta in 2 weeks. I haven't even had a slice of bread since I started. Look at me. Who am I?
I keep telling my co-worker its about learning new things about food.
Like before, I usually grab a hand full of nuts & think nothing of eating them. Now, I fill up this itty bitty cup of nuts, which is 2TSP size - about 11 nuts... & its really OK & enough for me. I would have never known this before I started this plan.
& one note of progress.... I did the Lower Body Fix last night. Almost cried thinking about doing it. It hurt so bad last week & I didn't want to re-live that... but I made it through & while sore most of the night, I did wake up this morning & I'm OK. I'm a tad sore - as I should be - but I'm not crying with each step. PROGRESS!
Here was my food for the day
Breakfast - 2 eggs on a wheat tortilla & yellow peppers
Snack #1 - cottage cheese + stevia + cinnamon - (This really was a filling snack. I need to do this more often)
Lunch - Subway with the hubs - a veggie patty salad with only veggies, a splash of honey mustard.
Snack #2 - Shakeology + small banana (Before work out)
2 TSP of nuts (after workout)
Dinner - Tilapia with brown rice & broccoli with cheese. (Thank you Lord I get that one blue cup a day)
Snack #3 - 16 dark chocolate chips
REMAINING: 1 green - 3 purple (dang! missed out on some good fruits) - 1 Red - 1 Yellow - 4 Tsp
I was so in check for the day on calories / fat / carbs/ protein / fiber / sugar... perfect actually
I'm loving learning all of this...
Pressing On to day 11
