My fellow chickeroos! I am so sorry that I have not been around to write any posts…my life has been SO busy. I feel like I haven’t even had time to sleep, haha!
I’m still on a plateau. I’m happy to not have gained (not much anyway) but then again, I really haven’t been putting much effort into it either.
I am changing things up a bit. The past few months I have been trying to still eat as healthy as possible but I admit that I have not been as strict as I should have been. There have been a few french fry incidents, and maybe some brownies or chocolate chip cookies. But for the most part, my stomach is still much smaller than it once was so I don’t worry about it all that much. I had been severely restricting my diet and calories and I’m just fed up with that. So I am trying a new approach to kick start myself back into losing and that is a low carb(ish) diet without restricing on meats, and veggies.
I went grocery shopping last night and bought some good healthy things to keep around for this type of plan. I made a great low carb dinner last night. Chicken breasts topped with a mixture of mayo and parmesan cheese that I baked up in the oven and then some sauteed garlic brussel sprouts and baked pizza zucchini. It was a veggie palooza around these parts last night 🙂 I have a friend that’s been doing low carb for a few months and has had great results. Another friend and I are joining her on this plan and have a good little support group going. I will be popping in here to record my meals (again!) and for support 🙂
So far today I have had my sugar free morning coffee and a high protein low carb bar for breakfast. I was running late or I would have had 2 eggs for breakfast. I made a yummy salad for lunch with romaine, chicken breast, avocado, cheese and salsa and sour cream for the dressing. Can’t wait for lunch :))) For dinner I think I will made steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms and top it with goat cheese…and a side of garlic spinach!
I know that I must force myself back into my walking routine but I just have NOT had the motivation. I could probably break the plateau by just getting back into it, but I have not had time or inclination to get out there. I wish I could get that mental drive back that was spurring me on all those months ago. I am confident I will get it back, it will just take time.
I’m off now to catch up on all your blogs 🙂 Have a great hump day (I’m so looking forward to this weekend already!)
