I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with creamer (but I am starting to make my own, healthier, version) because there are just some things a girl can’t give up.
I follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan. I am very excited about this.
I exercise four times a week for twenty minutes.
We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.
3.30 Breakfast: Two eggs, a small portion of hashbrowns, veggies and cheese. Since I am at goal weight I can eat hashbrowns, if you aren’t you should avoid them.
Snack: I knew I would be eating lunch later and I ate breakfast early so I wanted something to hold me over so I wouldn’t be starving. So I had Triple Zero yogurt by Oikos.
Lunch: Leftover Sarah’s Sausage and Peppers Pasta. This is so yummy, definitely a keeper recipe.
Snack: Choco Nut Secret Big Boy from THM Cookbook. This is a smoothie and it had okra in it. Yeah, I know, sounds gross. But I couldn’t even tell at all. It was yummy. It makes so much I only drank half of it and will have the rest today. There are many health benefits to okra, I had no idea.
Dinner: Fooled Ya Pizza from THM Cookbook. To this is pizza crust made out of cauliflower. I really liked it, my husband and son not so much. That was disappointing, I was hoping they would. But I thought it was great.
Snack: Brainy Blueberry Muffin from THM Cookbook.
3.31 Breakfast: Giant Blueberry Baked Pancake from Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook with THM syrup and two sausages.
Lunch: Leftover Loaded Baked Fouxtato Casserole. For this potato loving girl it’s a pretty big deal to find a substitute but I actually found the comfort in these that I find in my potatoes. Yum!
Snack: I tried having the rest of my smoothie today and let’s just say okra sitting in a smoothie for twenty-four hours tastes really bad. So I tossed that and had a St. Joseph lavish wrap with garlic humus, cucumber and red peppers. In hindsight I should have added a slice of turkey to make this THM friendly, always need protein. I also had a few grapes.
Dinner: Baked Chicken Thighs and a salad. My boys loved this 🙂
Snack: Strawberry Muffin from THM Cookbook. I made one for my hubby too with some Fat Free Reddi Whip and he liked it 🙂 Making progress.
4.1 Breakfast: Oatmeal On The Go Cups from Trim Healthy Table and two sausages.
It’s Easter and eating with family. I ate what I wanted but didn’t go crazy. Having leftovers for supper but making better choices.
4.2 Breakfast: Two eggs, small portion of hashbrowns, veggies and cheese.
Lunch: Took my mom out for lunch, a belated birthday gift, to the British Tea Garden. I had a turkey wrap. Not totally on the THM plan but pretty close.
Snack: Berry Treat. This is becoming my favorite go to snack, I love it!!!
Dinner: Yummy Go To Chicken (I made this with chicken breast) and Zucchini Fries (didn’t really like these). I made this a crossover meal (I dropped a couple of more pounds and I need to stop) so I added some quinoa to this meal.
Snack: Oatmeal Chip Muffins.
4.3 Breakfast: Bring on da Buttah Pancakes from THM Cookbook (very good) and two sausages. THM syrup. I am loving the THM life, I eat better and more variety than I ever did before.
Snack: Lemon Strawberry Muffins. To make my life easier I baked these in an 8×8 pan, cut them up and froze the extra for future snacks. Planning is the key to healthy living!! I also had a Babybel.
Dinner: Spaghetti with a sugar free sauce over quinoa (the rest of the fam had it over regular noodles) and a salad. This was a Crossover. Use Zoodles to keep this in S territory, for those who know THM lingo 🙂
Snack (more like dessert): Choco Skinny Chip Muffin form THM Cookbook.
4.4 Breakfast: Two Eggs, small portion of hashbrowns, veggies and cheese.
Lunch: Garbanzo Bean Soup, I added chicken.
Snack: Cheesecake Berry Crunch from THM Cookbook. Oh my, this was so good, I will add more sweetener next time but otherwise I loved it.
Dinner: Spaghetti Squash Chicken, this was okay.
Snack: Pumpkin Spice Loaf
4.5 Breakfast: Bring on da Buttah Pancakes from THM Cookbook (very good) and two sausages. THM syrup.
Lunch: Salad in a Jar (E) from THM Cookbook. This was so good and filling. I used to be ant-salads because I never thought they could be filling. I was wrong.
Snack: Maple Cinnamon Larabar
Dinner: We were going to have Rosemary White Beans and Chicken but the power went out when we weren’t home and I the beans didn’t get cooked through. However, the chicken did. So I improvised (going out to eat was tempting though). I pulled the chicken out of the crockpot because that was done, and added some taco seasoning. We had our generator going at this point so I heated up some shells for the family and cut up a plate full of lettuce for me. So we had chicken tacos. It worked and kept me eating healthy. And honestly I did take a bit of the rosemary white beans and it wasn’t very tasty, so I think this was a better meal overall.
