I have actually been looking forward to today since Saturday!!! My new diet is amazing — other than the fact that it totally stinks to cut out sugar!
This week, I am down another 2.5 pounds, my energy is up (thank goodness ’cause I have a ton to do!), and the cold I caught from the kids didn’t turn into bronchitis for once! If I can keep this up, I could hit my goal in less than 2 months. However, I am not really sure how the next three weeks will go since I will be traveling. I have yet to figure out what I can order at any of the fast food places… I mean really, what can you get when chicken and lettuce are not an option? “UM… let’s see, I’d like a hamburger, minus the ketchup, mustard, onion, lettuce and bun. Thanks! Oh, and can you add a tomato to that?” 😉 I guess I better plan on bringing a cooler.
I have found a new treat though!!! On Monday, when I was in town, I went into the health food store to pick up some more dates… I had really been wanting something sweet. I nearly died when the girl inside the door was offering samples of ice cream! Noooooo!!! I love ICE CREAM!!! How was I going to turn it down? I said, “Oh, no thanks, I can’t have dairy….” She said, “It is dairy free! It is made with coconut milk!” REALLY!!! I then asked, “Does it have sugar in it?” (As I picked up the container to look at the ingredients!) Nope!!! NO SUGAR!!! It was sweetened with Agave Syrup, which I can have. The very last ingredient was vanilla, darn… Oh well! The two biggies were out of the way, I was going to try some! It was heavenly, and so deliciously creamy! It is, of course, high in fat and calories… But, supposedly coconut fat is a “good for you” fat, and at this point, I DON’T CARE, this stuff is good for my morale!!! I bought 3 pints — 2 of which are already gone… and I STILL LOST WEIGHT! I can do this!
- Week twelve progress: -2.5 pound
- Total lost in WoW: -8 pounds
Goals for this week:
- Make a list of foods that will be easy to eat while traveling.
- Find a way to make Coconut Bliss at home without the vanilla! (It only has like 5 ingredients, so it shouldn’t be too hard!)
To see everyone else’s results this week, head over to Regina’s!
