One week down, baby!

I did it!!  I went an entire week eating as healthily as possible.  No cream for my coffee (never actually cut that out before.  And actually I have cut out the coffe because it wasn't worth it to me without cream and sweetener), no artificial sweetener (which basically took me to no caffeine), no grains, no alcohol...just meats, veggies, and healthy fats.  There were a couple of times out of necessity I had to be flexible, but I only flexed when I HAD to and not when I WANTED to, so I am proud.

I snuck a peak at the scale and I'm quite pleased.  Tomorrow is my weigh in day for my 40 by 40 Challenge, so I will check in with my weight then.  I squandered a lot of time in this challenge, so I have 5 months left.  I want to give it my all so I can wear something smashing for my 40th birthday!

My workout for today will be at lunch.  I think I will walk some hills and work the booty some.

Today's meal plan:

Breakfast:  Peppermint tea.  Egg beaters wrapped in roast beef.

Lunch:  One zucchini boat.  And then I'm going to chop up a boiled egg, avocado and some zucchini for a little salad.

Snack:  Boiled egg, cucumber and mixed nuts.

Dinner:  Some leftover stuffing from the zucchini boats with leftover mixed vegetables from last night's dinner.

I have gotten several good lunch ideas from people and I have a good list going.  Keep the ideas coming! 

Hugs!

AWESOME WORK! I think being successful with this band is all about being flexible (back to liquids/sliders) if it is what is necessary, but not just because we want to eat everything that we want.

Good for you! I know just how impressive a whole week of success is. I am much like you that I can do really well for the work week and then blow it on the weekend. Big success, high fives for you!

Good job. I need to borrow some of your dedication. LOL. I would have to also give up coffee completely (gasp!) because it's nothing without my FF creamer and splenda. lol. Very impressed with you sticking to it!
