Menu Aug. 25-31st

 

This week I’m trying something different. Instead of writing all that I eat as breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, I thought I would use bullet points because sometimes I am not recording my coffee and how much cream I put in it or if I take a spoonful of my ‘good for you’ icing that I made for the cake. This way every, single, bit of food is written down for you all to see.

Sunday: 135.0

  • Kefir Coconut Blueberry Smoothie w/1Tbs coconut oil, 1tsp. flax, a little nunaturals
  • Coffee with 3 heaping Tbls. of whipped cream sweetened with Nunaturals
  • 2 scrambled eggs, 1/2 zucchini, 1/4 cup organic salsa and 1 whole avocado
  • Pizza topping from 2 slices

Sunday I wasn’t hungry. I came home from church had  a coffee and about 3:00 made me my scrambled eggs piled with veggies. By dinner time which was around 7:30 I didn’t want to eat too heavy as I was going to bed early around 9:00.

Kefir smoothie was breakfast on the go which usually happens Sunday morning.

Monday: 134.0

  • Coffee with 3 heaping Tbs. of whipped cream and nunaturals
  • 2/3 cup cottage cheese, 1/3 cup black beans, 1/3 cup salsa, shredded greens, shredded chicken breast.
  • 16oz cup of coffee with 3 heaping tsp. of whipped cream and a few shakes of NuNaturals
  • 1 cup 0% Greek yogurt with 1 cup berries
  • In-N-Out Protein Burger with cheese, tomato, grilled onions, and lettuce
  • Swiss water decaffeinated coffee with 3 heaping tsp. of whipped cream and few shakes of NuNaturals.
  • 2tsp of ‘good for you’ icing, so delicious. It was a bit late to do this though (10:00p.m.).

I was excited to see 134.0. Now I don’t expect it to be exactly 134.0 tomorrow but more of 134.8 or even 135.0. Well I over did it with the cream so we’ll see how it goes scale-wise tomorrow.

I did better with eating meat today.

My new favorite mug with coffee and some heavy whipped cream.
Coffee

Tuesday: 134.2

  • Coffee with 3 heaping tsp of whipped cream (this is leftover from Lance’s birthday)
  • Kefir coconut blueberry smoothie with protein powder, coconut oil, flax, and coconut cream)
  • 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt plain w/1/2 cup raspberries, sweetened with NuNaturals
  • 3/4 cup cottage cheese, 1/3 cup black beans, 1/3 cup salsa, shredded greans (I forgot to add some lunch meat).
  • Del Taco Tostada and taco without the shells.
  • Seattle Coffee with Splenda and cream
  • 2 pieces of lean deli meat from Costco.
  • Few scoops of “good for you” icing.

I drank 24oz water with my Calcium w/Magnesium Calm supplement, 34+ ounces of The Shrinker, and water.

Today after eating my cottage cheese and black beans I didn’t feel bloated, so I’m not sure why some days it affects me and others it doesn’t. I do believe that it’s most likely not good for my gut.

My hubby and I took my MIL to the airport. On the way back we stopped at Del Taco.

Total loss this week: 1.6

I’m experimenting with using cream. It’s a good experiment because I love my coffee.  I want to see if and how it affect my weight. I am happy to see that it hasn’t stalled my weight loss. I’ll try another week of being liberal with my cream (6 tablespoons a day). I really want to switch over to coconut cream eventually.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. It helps me see how this applies and works in real life, not just in theory.

  2. Thank you Sara. My meals are pretty boring but it works for me. I'd like to experiment more with wraps and bread but haven't made the time.
