PERSONAL TRAINER FOOD DAY 14

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Well I'm halfway in but haven't eaten half the food yet. Although my husband does get his share of the veggies when we eat at home. We did so last night with store bought chicken and frozen veggies. I messed up though when I brought a slice of cake home for my husband and he shared it with me. You know what? It didn't taste all that good and then it settled on my stomach. Got to stick with this.
I'm at the point in any diet when I know the scale will slow down. I have yet to start any sort of exercise, even walking for 15 min like they suggest. But I'm pressing on.
I will say that there is a lack of fiber in this diet so I'm making sure to take a fiber supplement in the mornings. This morning I just would like a bowl of otatmeal but I wll have chicken soup again. It was tasty yesterday and plenty of it left. Later.

PERSONAL TRAINER FOOD DAY 13

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

I'm getting real tired of all this protein and veggies and would love to add a half a bagel for breakfast. I will wait on that though. I am slowly searching for ways to spice up the food and found a recipe for Southern American Succotash Soup with Chicken at www.norcalfoodies.com . I made it last night as I had the ingredients at hand and was able to pull the lima beans from my stash. Had just purchased a rotisserie chicken from Publix and dismantled it to add to the soup. It was yummy and I think I'll have a bowl for breakfast. Something different at least. It calls for milk that I'm not supposed to have but hey, what's a body to do?

Weighed this morning and lost another pound. This is definitely working and I'm learning how to eat healthier and enjoy it. I started back on WW in July and since then, have lost a total of 11 pounds! I feel it in my tummy and my husband has noticed! It feels so good to be out of 190 land.

I think if you purchased the food program and stuck to it alone, you would get real bored with it. We eat out so much and I'm fairly creative as a cook, that I am able to make it more appealing. And I've definitely learned how to eat out sensibly. Later!

    You are doing so good I have heard to change eating around--eating supper for breakfast to help keep you from getting bored with meals. I know that I am doing that too.

PERSONAL TRAINER FOOD DAY 12

Monday, September 29, 2014

Getting real tired of eggs and sausage for breakfast but hey, its allowed. I will say that eating all this protein keeps me full. I am allowed an apple but no other fruit. That seems silly but I'm sticking to it for the most part. Been experimenting with different apples. Tried an "envy" apple and I like it very much. Very crisp and not mushy. Today a friend is coming over to sew and I'll have chicken salad lunch! I love that chicken salad.
I know one thing for sure, we are saving money on food! My grocery bill yesterday was $49.03. Just to supplement and buy bananas and a slice of cake for hubby. Lost another pound for total of ten since July!

PERSONAL TRAINER FOOD DAY 11

Sunday, September 28, 2014

It's Working! The scale had landed on 190 hovering towards 189. Oh, I am so happy and my stomach definitely feels flatter. Last night we went to a party and I was able to wear a flirty skirt I hadn't worn in a while. Got lots of complements on how nice I looked. Even though my weight is up there, my frame allows me to carry it and I don't look as heavy as I am. Thus, wasn't that interested in losing.

However, the PTF program is sooooooo easy. Just grab a meat and veg, heat it up and eat it. Yesterday's lunch wasn't all that good but it was filling. Bacon, cheese and chicken sticks. Won't order that again. It's going to take me longer than 28 weeks to eat it all anyway as we go out so often. But I'm making healthier choices when we do go out. So far so good!

PERSONAL TRAINER FOOD DAY 10

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Ten days in and my stomach feels so much flatter. Such a good feeling. Had fajitas last night at the mexican restaurant, no tortillas, a few chips and salsa. Usually I eat the whole basket of chips so that was good. Water water everywhere helps you get up early to pee.
Today is a home/sew/football day. Hubby has to work so I will be heating up something healthy to eat and watching FSU vs NC emoticon STATE.
Yesterday for lunch, I grabbed one of the hamburgers provided, heated it up and served it on two large lettuce leaves and sliced tomatoes. IT was a great hamburger sans bread. Added carrot sticks and a bit of dressing.
Tonight we are out again at a party. It is a sassy southern buffet with fried chicken, hamburger steak, rice, black eyes peas, salad and peach cobbler. I'm originally a Yankee so this type of food isn't my favorite but a big salad and fried chicken, without the breading sounds good to me. Maybe a bite of peach cobbler. Happy Saturday!
