I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with Trim Healthy Mama approved creamer. I also drink unsweetened tea and I have discovered True Lemon. Kind of like Crystal Light but uses stevia…very good, my kids like this. They sell it at my local Meijer. I also drink Bai once in a while and since it’s summer I am trying Trim Healthy Mama Sippers and Good Girl Moonshines.

I follow the  Trim Healthy Mama plan, but I am at goal weight so I do a lot of Crossover meals, at least I am trying to do more Crossovers. This plan works so well I have dropped more weight because I haven’t done enough Crossover meals.

I exercise five times a week for twenty-five to thirty minutes.

We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.

7.27 Breakfast: Almond Strawberry Night Oats. This is not THM, just my favorite overnight oats recipe that I like to have once in a while. I don’t put any almonds in and I don’t add extra jelly in the morning and I used less almond butter then it called for trying to keep it in E but it’s a Crossover (fats and carbs).

Lunch: Leftover Save Your Waistline lasagna

Snack: Mozzarella and salami

Dinner: Rotisserie chicken and broccoli

Snack: Strawberry Shortcake (made a white cake from THM Cookbook, cut it in half and layers FF Redi Whip and Strawberries…yum)

7.28 Breakfast: Two Eggs, a few hashbrowns and lots of veggies and I threw in one sausage.

Snack: I ate at weird times because we had a memorial at 2:00. I had a Peanut Butter Cookie Dough yogurt which I am liking more and more every time I eat it.

Lunch: The memorial was at a restaurant. I could have stayed on plan but my daughter wanted fries so I got fries with a Slaw Dog (hot dog wrapped in bacon and covered in cole slaw…it was very good) and I ate a few fries.

Dinner: Made turkey tacos from THT. So simple and so yummy. I only made five (they are super small but I could have easily eaten more) I also had a Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Shake from THT to round out the meal.

Dessert/Snack: Chocolate Chip Cookies

7.29 Breakfast: On the go oatmeal cups

Lunch: I made a sandwich using a new tortilla I bought hoping my family will make the switch to low carb shells, they are made by Mission and have 6 carbs. I put some Laughing Cow Gouda cheese, turkey, spinach, onion and mayo on it. Very good:) I wasn’t feeling very hungry so that was all I ate.

Snack: Greekie Swirl

Dinner: BLTs from THT and the rest of the shake from the day before.

Snack: Raspberry Muffin with Glosting from THM Cookbook.

7.30 Breakfast: THM Pancakes with strawberries.

Lunch: Made a salad with chicken, a slice of bacon, lots of veggies, feta, olive oil and ACV.

Snack: I didn’t get a chance to eat a snack until 4:00 and by then I knew I would be eating supper in two hours, so I whipped up a THM Chocolate Protein Milk since I just got a bag of it, yummy. Held me off until dinner and didn’t have any fuels overlapping until…

Dinner: My parents took the kids and me out for supper and I haven’t had a Big Boy Slim Jim in years and I loved those as a kid. I didn’t even hesitate (much) and I ordered it with fries and ate it all.

Snack: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffle A small simple snack, just to feed the sweet craving.

7.31 Breakfast: Big Bowl Scram from THT

Dinner: Sauteed zucchini, onions and turkey smoke sausage, yum!

Dessert: Cinnamon Roll Muffin, didn’t love this.

8.1 Breakfast: Succulent Egg Sammie from THM Cookbook

Lunch: I got creative today. When my husband goes on trips I like to make scalloped potatoes because he doesn’t like them, so I make them while he is gone. I wasn’t sure if I would this time since it really isn’t THM friendly but I really missed them. I actually think I created a pretty good crossover. I found a low carb cheese sauce. I sliced up a potato and used turkey smoked sausage. I ate only half of it, which means half of the potato and I had some green beans. It turned out very yummy and I have leftovers.

Snack: Made Protein Praline bars from THM Cookbook

Dinner: Made my first Fat Head Dough for pizza and piled on the toppings. I also had a salad. Soooo good. I think my husband might even like this crust.

Snack: Zucchini Cinnamon Muffin

8.2 Breakfast: Oatmeal with strawberries and blueberries (got the recipe from Instagram)

Lunch: Made some Wonderful White Blender Bread (WWBB) from THT and made a turkey sandwich with gouda cheese, onion and lettuce with Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Yogurt. This was SO good. I love this bread!!

Snack: Chocolate chip cookies from Briana Thomas.

Dinner: Hangry Meals for One Chimichangas made from Wonder Wrap 2 (THT), these were delish!

Snack: Zucchini Cinnamon Muffin

Dinner: Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup from THM Cookbook. This was awesome, I was so impressed. Definitely a keeper.

Snack: Single Serve Peach Cobbler This is so good. I made homemade THM whipped cream because neither store I went to have Fat Free Redi Whip.

But I also felt like I really shouldn’t do that to my body, like I would feel guilty afterwards. Sometimes (most of the time) I can eat off plan and I feel no guilt but I have learned to be sensitive to the times I do feel that way. I ended up making the right choice and got a Chicken BLT salad with ranch. I had a bite of a break stick and a bite of pizza to satisfy that longing. And no guilt! Doing good things for my body feels good. (And I know I am going to cheat on Monday…it’s my birthday!!)

Snack: Raspberry muffin with glosting from THM Cookbook

I smeared on some sour cream, salsa and guacamole.

I drink only water and a cup of coffee or two a day with Trim Healthy Mama approved creamer. I also drink unsweetened tea and I have discovered True Lemon. Kind of like Crystal Light but uses stevia…very good, my kids like this. They sell it at my local Meijer. I also drink Bai once in a while and since it’s summer I am trying Trim Healthy Mama Sippers and Good Girl Moonshines.

I follow the  Trim Healthy Mama plan, but I am at goal weight so I do a lot of Crossover meals, at least I am trying to do more Crossovers. This plan works so well I have dropped more weight because I haven’t done enough Crossover meals.

I exercise five times a week for twenty-five to thirty minutes. Only because it’s summer and I sit around a lot more, I need to exercise more.

We rarely go out eat, I cook A LOT!! But I enjoy it.

6.22 Breakfast: Big Bowl Breakfast from Trim Healthy Table

Lunch: Leftover Blackened chicken

Snack: I can’t remember

Dinner: Graduation party (I didn’t stay on plan, but I didn’t over eat)

Snack: I’ll be honest my daughter talked me into stopping at a new coffee place. I did purchase a Iced Caramel Latte.

Dinner: Chicken Jalapeno Popper soup from THM Cookbook

Lunch: I decided to eat off plan and get a turkey club and fries. I didn’t eat it all.

Snack: Tradition dictated that we get ice cream, so I did. I can so easily see how I put on the weight in the past. Eating this way all time and not moving. No wonder.
