Day 1 11/1

It's almost 10pm and I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty miserable. I was so excited this morning and that has just slowly disappeared throughout the day... Sorry, not trying to be Debbie Downer, just honest.
I had my breakfast around 9am (2eggs and 4 slices of turkey bacon). It was my first time trying turkey bacon and I really liked it, so I was like wow, this is great! I was full for awhile after that. I worked out around 2pm doing Dirty 30 and had a peanut butter protein shake afterwards. Looking back, I should have had a snack before that, but I really wasn't hungry. I'll try that tomorrow. After that I had lunch-which was delicious-tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I took my measurements and recorded those on one of the printables I mentioned in my previous post. At 4pm I had my snack which was a baggy of baby carrots, wah wahh wahhhh.  I don't care what anyone says, that's not a snack haha. Then I started to get really hungry. Mind you, my kids are eating on their Halloween candy, I had to make tacos for everyone else's dinner and I was trying to save my dinner for as late as possible. So I had my other snack, grapes. Didn't help. Around 7:30 I had my dinner of turkey lettuce wraps, they were good. All in all, not that great of a day but I didn't give up and don't plan to. That doesn't mean I can't complain though :) Tomorrow I will try to space my meals out better. Pilates on deck.

Day 2 11/2

Breakfast- 4 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice WG toast (1 red 1 yellow)
Lunch- Turkey lettuce wraps (1green, 1 red)
Dinner- Buffalo chicken and broccoi casserole (1 blue, 1 red, 1 green)
Snack- Grapes (1 purple)
Snack- Hummus and celery (1 green)
Snack- Peanuts (1 orange)
Today started out well again. I know now my struggle is going to be watching everyone else eat and having to prepare meals for my family. I took an early trip to Wal Mart to pick up a few food items that I wanted so that I could change up my snacks a little. My husband had a work meeting and then was off the rest of the day. He was home before me with 2 rolls of sushi and a huge togo box of lo mien...grrrrrr. Seriously? So I snacked on hummus and celery--by the way I HATE celery! I have tried it with ranch, peanut butter and hummus. I was literally choking it down, but I got through it. After my snack I decided to go ahead and workout before my oldest got home from school. I mistakenly did pilates, it was actually supposed to be yoga, so I will just switch those days. Pilates required a fitness band, luckily I already had one because I didn't realize you needed that. After my workout I went to warm my soup that I said was so delicious from yesterday. I was picking it up off the counter and with my luck ,and flawless grace, I dropped the whole thing on the floor. People I'm telling you if someone asked me to splatter this soup as far and as wide as I possibly could, I wouldn't have even came close to making the mess that was in my kitchen. It was so not funny at the time, I couldn't even take a picture...but here's a visual: ALL on my counters, all along the baseboards, inside one of the drawers that was partially open, from my dishwasher all they way behind me on the fridge. The best part was the hot soup on my leg and all over my Nikes *insert mad emoji*. I just stood there holding my spoon looking at the mess in awe. MY hubby offered to help clean it but I was so upset that my planned food was now all over the floor, that I just wanted to do it myself. So, I handed him my shoes and socks and asked him to throw them in the washing machine. Once that fiasco was over I ate what was supposed to be my dinner. I looked on Pinterest and found a casserole that I tweaked a little bit to make for my dinner. I snacked on grapes that night as I tried to hold my eyes open watching the World Series with my hubby. Day 2 down....

Day 3 11/3

Breakfast- 4 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice WG toast (1 red 1 yellow)
Lunch- Turkey lettuce wraps (1green, 1 red)
Dinner- Buffalo chicken and broccoi casserole (1 blue, 1 red, 1 green)
Snack- Pineapple (1 purple)
Snack- Chicken and cabbage (1 red, 1 green)
Snack- Peanuts (1 orange)

Hallelujah! Today was a better day! I was actually looking forward to that casserole that I made for dinner last night. I still have 3 containers left so I will be eating on that all week! You can get the actual recipe here. This is how I made it:

Serving size :4

3 reds of cooked, diced chicken
4 yellows of cooked whole wheat rotini noodles
6 Cups steamed broccoli
1/2 onion – diced and sauted
 1 blue of low fat cheddar


3 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 TBSP almond flour
2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
 dash of salt and pepper
2 blues of low fat cheddar or mozza cheese
1 red plain Greek Yogurt
Franks Hot Sauce – to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. You will need to precook the chicken, veggies and pasta. Spray an 8×8 casserole with Pam. Combine the cooked ingredients in a casserole dish.
2. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the flour and whisk together. Add in the almond milk slowly while whisking. Bring to a boil and let it thicken. Add in the cooked onions, salt, pepper, and cheese.
3. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the greek yogurt and hot sauce.
4. Pour the sauce into the casserole dish and mix everything together carefully.
5. Bake for 20 minutes

Hopefully you enjoy that as much as I did! My workout today was Plyo and I knew it was going to be harder than others I have done in the past because if you are doing a good workout in 30 min, it probably going to burn and it burned! I can feel my butt and leg muscles right now, so I know I will be sore tomorrow. You should have seen me trying to get up the stairs in our house with my legs feeling like jello haha. What a sight! Tomorrow I have to work at 4pm so it will be my first 8hr shift on the diet. We shall see how that goes!
