Is anyone else struggling through this week? Feeling sluggish and unmotivated? Sleepy and whiny?
Perhaps it’s the snow (ugh!) or the fact that I haven’t seen Dan in ten days or maybe it’s just one of those weeks. Either way, I’m totally over it and completely ready for the weekend. Thankfully, I only have to work until noon on Friday – that thought is keeping me sane.
Ok, rant over!
The rest of the week has been going good – last night I worked out and made dinner with my sister and tonight I’m looking forward to an awesome sweat session at Renegade.
Today marks day 9 of the 21 Day Fix – 12 days to go – I plan to re-measure on Sunday to see where I’m at. Weight-wise, I’m down three pounds, but I gotta tell you, I fluctuate so bad that I’m counting more on measurements than pounds for results.
Today, I wanted to share a collection of foods that I’ve been eating and loving on this program. It’s amazing the amount and variety of foods that I can have – it’s pretty great and makes sticking to it so doable. I love the containers, too, it makes packing a lunch super easy and I never can mess up the serving size.
I have either had my usual – 1 egg + 2 egg whites + spinach + hot sauce, overnight oats + banana + 2
overcooked hard boiled eggs or Shakeology with coffee.
I can’t have creamer, so instead I’ve been brewing coffee at night and throwing it in with my shakes – it’s heaven – especially Dunkin’ Donuts Coconut flavor with Chocolate Shakeo – that’s just a match made in heaven.
I used to eat a salad everyday at lunch. I love how I have the option to be creative now and enjoy some other foods. However, if I don’t have a salad at lunch, I usually have it for dinner.
This was half of a small sweet potato, cucumber slices and tuna mixed with celery, jalapeno, greek yogurt and hot sauce. I used the cucumber as ‘chips’ for the tuna and I forgot how much I love a baked sweet potato. Recently, I’ve been doing sweet pot fries and the baked was a nice change – this lunch was perfection for me.
This is usually where I get most creative. Thankfully, I can refer right to my meal plan, so that I know what I’m having, but also so that I stick with only the rest of the containers I have available for that day.
This fish taco was so good – tilapia cooked with special seasoning, jalapeno, onion, spinach and cheese on an Ezekiel tortilla along with black beans – what more could you want?!
With pizza, full or not, I used to always go back for more, but now that I’m paying attention to portions, I ate this and that was it, done deal! Even better, I made a point to pay attention to my hunger level and I was perfectly satisfied, not overly full like I’d typically be after eating pizza.
Lastly, I wanted to share this buffalo chicken pita sandwich I had the other night.
This is going to be a staple.
And because this post isn’t long enough – here are some snacks that I’ve been enjoying – pretty much the usual things you see here on F2BF.
Next time I’ll bring you my 21 Day Fix Fitness – stay tuned!!
