Today is day 16 of my journey to a better me.
I have to say that it has been easy and hard at the same time.
The hardest part for me is the diet (isn't it always lol)...this diet is extremely restricted, and i don't recommend it for those who crave variety in their food. My oldest son however, has been loving it because i have been tasked with figuring out small, simple, easy, meals for him, because what kid wants to eat egg whites and asparagus? Last night he had homemade pizza rolls and tonight...mac n' cheese mixed with broccoli and sausage (his favorite).
So, this is what my meals looked like for the past two weeks. I took one or two meals and put them in heavy rotation for these first two weeks, I'm a creature of habit, so i don't mind munching on the same thing for a week. ;0))
- 1 Protein Shake
- 6 large strawberries
Lettuce Wrapped Hamburger
- 1 4 Oz lean hamburger patty
- 4 sheets of lettuce (to wrap)
- 2 tsp of Mustard
- 2 tsp of Walden Farms Ketchup
- 1 Orange
Lemon Garlic Shrimp & Pasta
- 1 serving of shrimp (measuring out to 4 oz raw)
- 1 serving of Miracle noodle Angle Hair pasta
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1/2 white onion
- Garlic powder (to taste)
To say that i worked out everyday for the past two weeks, would be...a lie lol. While i attempted to get a workout in every day after work, sometimes, i was just too exhausted. However, on the days that i did miss i added those workout routines to my next session.

I have to say that i enjoyed these workouts (as much as you can enjoy working out), they didn't take up much time and i was able to do all of them within the comfort of my home. All of the routines are difficultly simple, meaning they are not insanely intense crossfit workouts but you do feel the burn and are sore the next morning.
I started out at 202.2 lbs and as of this morning i am now at 193.4 lbs, for a total of 8.8 lbs lost. :o)) Below are my results so far. The first picture is from the morning of my Red Mountain Med Spa appointment (Day 1), the second picture is from day 8, and the third picture is from this morning (day 16).
Next week i will be facing a huge challenge...resisting New Mexican food! I'm going home for the memorial day weekend and I'm not sure i'll be able to resist Green Chile Cheeseburgers, Blakes, or Twisters burritos, so say a prayer for me...I'll need it!
As always, thanks for stopping by and wish me luck!!
