Week 4: Day 4

Feb. 11, 2015

Still going strong! I think I actually have the confidence in myself to do this and am pretty proud at how far I have come. I also don’t think I am craving the bad food as much as I did in the beginning. Now, yes I still would love a good sandwich on white bread and could easily eat a big bowl of pasta, but I don’t feel like I need to eat that food anymore. Maybe I am even growing to like some of this food I am eating. Whoa!

Breakfast

yogurt

Itty, bitty breakfast this morning. I was on a tight schedule and didn’t want to throw up what I ate at the gym. Some low fat vanilla yogurt, walnuts and chocolate chips. I am still shocked that I am actually eating yogurt and enjoying it.

Lunch

Finished up that chicken from Monday and Tuesday. Nothing exciting to report.

Dinner

egg and olive

For some reason I have been craving egg salad, so I went for it. In my family we make what is called “egg and olive.” I’m not sure if this is a normal thing or just a my family thing. Either way so tasty. I was so in the mood, I made plenty of leftovers. Egg and olive consists of chopped up hard boiled eggs, mayo, sliced black olives, and salt and pepper to taste. Sounds weird and unappetizing, but promise it is great. I stuffed the concoction in half of a multigrain pita and paired it with some broccoli. I am already looking forward to the leftovers for tomorrow.

Week 4: Day 1

Feb. 8, 2015

I am entering my fourth week! Which is super exciting because 4 weeks means 1 month and 1 month is impressive in my book. I don’t think I have ever made it this far in anything. I feel super motivated to keep this going and push myself. I want to keep feeling better and making progress.

Breakfast

I was home and heading back to school and didn’t eat anything. Oops.

Lunch

hot turkey

I got back to school and was starving, so I whipped this up. A pretty classic lunch for me. Some warmed up turkey, colby jack cheese and mayo on half of a multigrain pita. It was nice and fillingĀ and very satisfying. I had it with some carrots and ranch to add some freshness.

Dinner

buff chick pizza

So not the healthiest thing I have ever made, but I had leftover pita from the gyros, and I didn’t want them to go to waste. I decided to make a buffalo chicken pita pizza. On it was ranch, grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, scallions and Anchor Bar wing sauce. It wasn’t too big, so I didn’t feel too bad about eating it.
