7 Day Slim Down: Day 4

Morning, all!  So here's video #4 about my weight loss so far this week on the 7 day slim down and also a lot of talk about splurges & how to tackle ENJOYING LIFE & YOUR WEEKEND without totally blowing your diet.  BEWARE: my paleness & frizzy hair were on EXTRA display this morning (and I mean, HONESTLY, with these thumbnails!!)J  But this is real lifeJ  We're keepin it real here at My Tasty JourneyJ

And speaking of "real," I spent most of yesterday cringing thinking of how repetative & rambly my video from yesterday was on diet (and if I had a dollar for every time I said "99.9%" & "the thing about diet," not to mention "UMM" & "SO," I would be a millionaire 10 times overJ), but I will tell you that I actually tried to redo the video after listening to it back and the 'reshoot' just came out sounding very scripted and not as sincere.  So just so you know, even if it's rambly & crazy, that those are my honest thoughts from the heart....even if my heart just happens to be repetitive and not very linearJ hahahahahahahaJ


Thursday Recap:

8:00am:  Coffee with 1 teaspoon honey & almond milk

9:30am:  Breakfast- Perfect fit waffles with 4 strawberries

11:00am:  Snack- Grapefruit with Stevia  (ps-2 packets of Stevia for the day didn't affect me)

1:00pm:  Lunch- Tuna salad with 1/2 mango 

3:00pm:  Snack- Chocolate Protein Shake 
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 ice cubes

6:00pm:  Dinner- Turkey Breast & roasted brussel sprouts
Won't lie that I kinda wanted to break open a box of Stove Top to go along with this mealJ, but after we were done, I didn't think about it or miss it...but it was temptingJ 

The brussel sprouts were coated in 1 tablespoon coconut oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder & onion powder and roasted at 350 for about 40 minutes.  And they roasted right along with... 
This Jennie-O pre-flavored turkey breast was DIVINE!  1 hour in the oven and dinner was on the table with barely any prep.

7:00-8:15pm:  Hatha Yoga
And as I mention in the video, I was absolutly DRAGGING last night.  It was a tough one, but I made it!

No dessert last night even though I was DYINGGG for something.  Even with the week of 'sugar detox' (or ALMOST no sugar), I can't say it curbed my nightly sweet tooth THAT much.  I think I'm just gonna try to make an effort to have 'healthier desserts' options during the week (already excited to make these strawberries!) and to be really conscious of whether I REALLY want dessert or it's just a habit.  If a cup of tea or cinnamon/honey water can keep me 'busy enough' so skip sugar for one night, I'll be really happy with that choice.  I don't want to feel deprived, which could lead to a binge, but I'm gonna be more conscious about those 'better options' and not just have chocolate & ice cream cause that's what we would "NORMALLY" have. 

But my salt-tooth really did take a back seat this week.  I used a LOT less than I normally would for dinner and as long as there was SOME, I didn't OVERLY crave it or wish for it any other time throughout the day.  So I took that as a small victory, right??J

Alright, we'll see how the weekend goes!  Hope you have a great one!!
