I have kept the promise I made on Day 11. I have not looked at the scale. But I definitely know that I’ve lost weight. You know how?
(If you’re a guy reading this, sorry. Skip to the food part.)
Today I was shopping for a bra to go with the bridesmaid dress I will be wearing to a wedding in a few weeks. You know what? I have gone down a whole cup size. Seriously? I have 5 babies worth of weight hanging around my belly and my thighs but where I lose it is up top. Perhaps next time I’ll be more specific when I say I want to lose weight. Ha.
- 2 Fried Eggs
- 1/2 an Apple and Almond Butter
- Handful of Pecans
Lunch: [not pictured]
- Carrot Sticks
- Deli Turkey
- 1/2 a Sweet Potato with Cinnamon
- Pecan Pie Larabar
- 30-Minute Chicken Cacciatore – I was concerned about this dish as I was cooking it. I was sure that it was far too much tomato and that it was going to be bland. Boy was I wrong. This dish was really delicious. Be sure you buy cutlets and not breasts or it will take too long to cook. I threw in the grape tomatoes with the rest of the veggies to cook; I didn’t wait to throw them in at the end. I also added mushrooms. I wasn’t particularly careful with the amount of spices, just every time I threw something in I generously sprinkled salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder. Also, I didn’t bother trying to drain some liquid out of the diced tomatoes, I just simmered everything a little longer. Make a little more than you’ll eat at dinner because it will make a really fantastic reheated lunch for a few days.
How We Felt:
I checked out how we’re supposed to be feeling today and today we’re apparently supposed to be feeling like TIGER BLOOD. Oh. Hmm. Well, I don’t feel like a snow cone flavor. And now I’m thinking about snow cones. Mmmm.
