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 3: Day 3

Feb. 4, 2015

Today I felt good about myself again! I was happy with what I ate and didn’t want to gorge on fries. It’s the little things that are getting me through.

Breakfast

yogurt with walnuts

Pre-workout breakfast was pretty light. I had some low-fat vanilla yogurt with some chopped up walnuts and a few chocolate chips. Yogurt is definitely not my favorite thing in the world, but I think I am learning to like it. For whatever reason walnuts make the world of difference, and without them I don’t think I would be eating any yogurt.

Lunch

buffalo turkey pita

So tasty! I had some leftover pita from my gyro’s on Monday, so I didn’t want them to go to waste because they were so great. Being from Upstate NY, anything with Buffalo sauce on it, I will eat, so I made a warm buffalo turkey pita. I heated up some turkey with Anchorbar buffalo sauce, scallions and colby jack cheese. Then I finished the pita with some romaine lettuce, ranch and tomatoes. Definitely high on my list of best meals I have made.

Dinner

Day 5 of the soup. Ugh. I still have so much left.
