Wow! Made it to the end of day 2. Hip Hip Hooray! laughing … So far I’m feeling wonderful. I don’t feel tired, or foggy. For the past two days I have been eating real food. This 21DSD is awesome! I forget how I crossed paths with this info regarding this program but I knew it appealed to me and I wanted to do it.
Why? Why would someone want to do this? Well for my own personal reasons I have 3 wonderful children 2 boys and a baby girl who just turned 4 months on the 5th of January. She’s a sweet pea and my boys are my luv bugs. After having her I felt weighed down, tired and thought how am I going to kick start myself “healthy” with 3 kids I don’t have time for GYM, but I do have time for meal planning and TV exercise. This is my personal goal for 2014. I know that the 21DSD will work for me because once I put my heart and soul into something there is no backing out. I’m hard headed like that and like to prove haters wrong and like to prove to myself Yes You CAN! (it’s the little lady attitude that I keep in my head when I feel like I’m going to fail)
So Day ONE: OMG NO SUGAR ekKKK my one liner was “I THINK I CAN … I THINK I CAN” that’s what got me though the day! I can do the NO SUGAR!! Let’s do it so my meals for the day where!
~Breakfast: 1 green tipped banana & 2 eggs (pancake) I added some flax seed & pure vanilla extract my pancake turned out good being the first time EVER following this recipe!
~Lunch: some tuna, black olives, celery salad (no mayo) with some lettuce, cherry tomatoes a few bites of cheese and 3 hot pickles and some almonds.
~Snack: avocado with balsamic vinegar & pepper
~Dinner: Yummy best ever meat loaf with some carrots
And of course I had water & black coffee to drink during the day. I only drink 2 coffee a day one in the am and one in the pm and the rest of the day is WATER .
After day 1 during the night I was feeling great! no issues went to sleep and felt great not hungry at all and no real “sugar carvings” I THINK I CAN I THINK I CAN Worked!
Day 2 on the 21DSD my one liner motivation for today was “FLIP THAT NUMBER TO 3” was a crazy morning because I had to get my son off to school and make lunches and breakfast as they are not doing the detox so they are still getting carbs (for now) once the morning rush was over I was able to make my own breakfast and was looking for to it as I woke up hungry. I drank a glass of water to get me though the morning rush.
~Breakfast: 1 red grapefruit cut in half with sprinkled cinnamon and baked in the oven for 15 min at 375. and 1 hard boiled egg.
~Lunch: veggie omelette & cheese
~Snack: Cocoa Smoothie & green apple with cinnamon
~Dinner: stuffed chicken thigh with cheese and wrapped in bacon with a side of roasted parmesan broccoli
after lunch today I was craving something sweet so bad and because we did not do groceries due to a snow storm and only doing them tomorrow I had to think quick what do I have that I can use to stop this craving so I thought quick before I caved. It was the first time I got this urge that came over me. Felt like it was going to win but I said NOPE I’m BOSS not you Miss Craving! so I made the cocoa smoothie and it was delish!!
here is what I used in a pinch!
1 cup ice
1 cup cold black coffee
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (pure)
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 green tip banana
BLEND and ENJOY!! 🙂 takes that sweet craving away. It will taste bland at first but trust me it will kick that sweet tooth in the butt! ENJOY!!
So after talking with my husband who’s also on board with this 21DSD I asked him how he was feeling and he said great. I’ve started to do 20min work-outs in my basement watching video though the Smart TV Samsung app I have goals on there to so when I do get an urge to eat something sweet like SUGAR I work-out and it gets me to the next hour or over that craving. It’s an evil battle to go though sugar withdrawls but I tell you. I feel more energy, more awake, and not heavy, foggy or tired. Who can say that with a 5 year old 4 year old and a 4 month old! That old saying “We are what we eat” after this 21DSD I plan on sticking with paleo and say buy buy to carbs and sugar! It’s really not that hard if you are willing to change your life style and eating habits. I can’t stop my children right now cold turkey like hubby and I however I will slowly introduce them into the world of eating real food! 19 more days to go Day 3 is around the corner! Thanks for following!! Feel free to comment below on my personal journey!
Here are some photos of the food I’ve eaten so far. I have not taken photos of all but a few.
