Eat to Live - Day 6 (Weight Goal)

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Yesterday was Day 6. I still didn't get to bed when I wanted to. I went to bed at midnight, fell asleep around 1am and got up around 9:30am.

This is what I ate:
-apricots soaked in unsweetened almond milk
-guacamole on celery
-spring mix salad squirted with lemon and strawberry flavored balsamic vinegar

It was way too much fruit but I think that can be okay sometimes. I think it helped flush out my digestive system with all the water and fiber in the fruit. The spring mix salad wasn't a lot because it was all I had left.

I've lost 7 lbs. since starting the 6 Week Plan on Monday. I'm sure most of that is water weight. My goal is now to weigh 150 lbs by March 14. That is the lowest I can go with SparkPeople's maximum of 2 lbs per week. If I lose more than 2 lbs in a week I can adjust my goal accordingly.

My first meal today was a big romaine salad with carrots, green beans, mushrooms, and onions, covered with what I like to call a PB&J salad dressing (because that's what it tastes like). I made the Creamy Blueberry Dressing from ETL but I substituted the cashew butter for no-salt-added natural peanut butter because that's what I have.

I'm going to make chili in the slow cooker. I'm going over to my parents' place to get some mail and hang out with my family.

My goal is still to get to bed by 10pm, lights out at 9 or 9:30pm. :)

    I just mean I probably won't lose weight that fast again.

    It matters not if it's water weight or not, 7lbs is 7lbs and that's something to be proud of and something hopefully to keep you motivated to keep going. Much success to you!

    I made the dressing, here is the recipe:


    SERVES 4

    2 cups fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries
    ½ cup pomegranate juice
    ¼ cup raw cashew butter
    3 tablespoons Dr. Fuhrman’s Wild Blueberry Vinegar or other fruit-flavored vinegar

    Blend all the ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender until smooth and creamy.


    I cut the recipe in half (because I only had a cup of frozen blueberries left) and used natural no-salt-added peanut butter instead of the raw cashew butter. I used strawberry flavored balsamic vinegar.

    your foods made my mouth water. I would love to know where you got the strawberry flavor dressing. Please share! Dressing is the hard part for me on salads as I tend to like the bad for me dressings. Keep up the great work. You can do it!
