Day 5 and still at it.

Yesterday was a good day as far as the fast goes.

Breakfast was a smoothie, lunch was sauteed onions with garlic zucchini and yellow squash. Then I had an apple with a bit of peanut butter in it.

Dinner I grilled some pork chops and heated up my left over sweet potato and did some red cabbage in foil with salt, pepper and a bit of olive oil. Wrapped the packets up and grilled them with the pork chops. I also heated up my left over onions, peppers and the avocado from the night before.

Aaron had a lunch and learn yesterday for work and brought home the left over salad and bread. Yum. Bread.

I ended up having half of my sweet potato, the peppers, onions and avocado, some red cabbage, a little bit of pork chop and then when Aaron got home I had some salad and yes I had some bread. The carbs kept me full just enough so I wasnt starving after an hour.

This morning I am down another pound to 176.0. Woo hoo!

Tonight is zumba and girls night. This is the first time I will have been to the gym in two weeks. And I am scared. LOL. But I will make it thru.

I have already checked out Aubree's menu for tonight. I am going to have a Greek Salad with the feta on the side and the dressing on the side. I will also allow myself some feta bread and a glass of wine. This should help keep me on track during the day knowing what dinner is tonight. I LOVE Greek Salad! And I still have a ton of salad left over for lunch today. Now just to stay away from the bread. LOL. And I will still have an apple with peanut butter for some protein for my system for my workout tonight.

So that is the news for now. Aaron leaves on Sunday for a business trip until Tuesday so I will be playing single mom for a couple days. LOL. So this weekend is my chance to get out while I can. Tonight is gals night and tomorrow night is gals night with my two Aunts. Should be fun!

Have a great day everyone!

Tip of the Day: I think I may try this smoothie tomorrow with canned pumpkin. Sounds delicious!


  1. Sounds like you're doing the right thing. Figuring out what works for you, not trying to conform to the "plan." That's the key to it all. We're not made from the same mold and what works for me might not work for you. I could definitely stand to add more vegetables to my diet, fo' sho'! Have fun tonight!

    1. Thanks. I like what I am doing right now and it is getting much easier to follow and doesnt feel so much like a fast but more a new way to eat.

  2. Sounds like a fun weekend! You do such a great job of creating balance between working out, family and fun! I'm so proud of you!

    I have done ZERO working out! Maybe if it warms up enough today I'll go for a walk after my conf calls. Definitely a walk on Sunday since it's supposed to be 70F!

    1. HA. I havent worked out in a while. LOL. Time to get back at it tonight though.
