Weighed in this morning, and had 2.2 pounds of fat loss. For me that is a huge amount. I started the program at 209, and I am 5’7″. I hit goal in April and phased off.
I was doing great until September, and emotional eating took its toll, slowly at first. Bad habits returned, good habits were cast aside… Because it was easier… (Or so I told myself.). But the more I slipped back, the worse I felt about myself.
This past week I fought through the emotions. I have been cooking and prepping again, logging every bite, and paying attention to triggers.
The holidays can be a huge trigger. It gets cold and I want to cuddle up with a warm cup of cocoa, a plate of goodies, and be like everyone else. You know… Normal.
This year, armed with Janeva’s cookbook, I am doing just that! And as you can see from my fat loss, I am doing it all on Phase 1 approved protocol. (I am 6 pounds from being right back to my goal!)
This morning I started with hot coffee blended with IP chocolate drink mix. For my mid morning meal, I was craving those goofy chocolate oranges that you can only get this time of year. Made my version. IP Chocolate Chip Pancake mix, 1 tablespoon WF chocolate syrup, 2 Tablespoons water, mix. Take a tablespoon of WF orange marmalade and put it in the center of the gooey mix… Place in microwave for 55 seconds… Plate and a bit more chocolate syrup!
Lunch is a bell pepper stuffed with left over baked chicken, mushrooms, and left over Spag Sauce (Janeva’s recipe.)
And dinner will be steak and salad… Cuz I am out of chicken!!!!
