*And yes, I'm aware I said I didn't do weight loss programs and proceeded to talk about oneJ. I just always looked at it as an "unsuccessful attempt," so didn't think that it countedJ But those were the ABSOLUTE ONLY ONES, I SWEAR!J
8:00am: Coffee with 1 teaspoon honey & almond milk
9:00am: Breakfast- Perfect Fit Waffles with 4 sliced strawberries + Pineapple ACV shot
The batter was the exact same as the pancake, but poured into a waffle iron...WHICH I LOVED because the edges got nice & crispy. SO GOOD.
Although those strawberries are covering the fact that I, OPPS, forgot to sprayed the bottom of the waffle iron with coconut oil spray, but failed to do the same to the TOPJ
10:30-11:45am: Power Yoga class
12:30pm: Lunch- Salad with 5 oz. leftover "Asian Turkey Meatballs"
As I mention in the video, not sure if it was the honey that 'spiked my blood sugar' (although this seems unlikely since it was a TEASPOON) or if it was because I missed my morning snack when I went to the gym, but I was REALLY hungry by the time I sat down to lunch and then that feeling stayed with me the rest of the day. Kinda gave me the thought that I should maybe have a piece of fruit or 1/2 a protein bar before or after my gym class, just so I don't get to that "REALLY HUNGRY" place.
I also had my grapefruit after lunch with a DROP (and I mean A DROP) of honey.
I should have mentioned the plan also says it's OK to have ANY piece of fruit mid-morning, but that grapefruit was best for fat burning, so I thought I'd give it a whirl and enjoyed it MUCH MORE than I thought I would. Again, ya never know what you'll like.
2:30pm: Snack- 1/2 Mango
Nope. Still hungry after thisJ In "normal life/post slim down," I would definitely have had a little protein along with this and I think that would have helped keep me full MUCH longer.
5:00pm: Dinner- Grilled Turkey tenderloins & kale chips
The turkey I made the same as Monday, with a quick coating of Mrs. Dash & tossing them on the grill for 3-5 minutes.
The kale chips were made with a drizzle of 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (TIU approved) and a sprinkle of sea salt, garlic & onion powder and baked at 400 for about 15 minutes. I know they look 'dark,' but the longer you cook kale chips, the more crispy they taste.
We can still fool Katie that these are actually 'chips,' so she loves emJ
5:30-6:30pm: Body Jam
As I mentioned in the video, it WAS hilariously ironic that I was REALLY tired and could have skipped this last nightJ But I didn't and certainly didn't regret going...but I was DEF more on the 'tired' side last nightJ
8:00pm: "Dessert"- 1/2 cucumber & 1/4 cup hummus
This was supposed to be your mid-afternoon snack yesterday (and probably would have helped with filling me up and keeping me full), but since we eat so early on Wednesdays so I can get to the gym, I thought I'd save it for "dessert." Yet another reason I'm happy to follow this program because I FORGOT how simple & delicious this was for 'dessert.' Sometimes all I need is the REMINDER that I can have something besides ice cream & chocolate. DEF gonna remember to add these type of 'dessert/snacks' in from now on.
Alright...onto a day of the half way mark! STAY STRONG!
Have a great THURSDAY!
