It's time for another week in South Beach land :) Come on in and share your menus, your struggles and your questions no matter what phase you are on. (There is also a Phase 1 support thread here (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/south-beach-diet/235966-phase-1-op-thread-week-two-starting-6-19-a.html) for extra Phase 1 support)
:carrot::cp::goodvibes:drill::frypan::kickbutt: :goodscale

I'm moving into Phase 1.5 after 3 weeks before my birthday and one more after. I usually don't advocate spending so long on Phase 1 but I really had made a mess of my eating and just couldn't get past those cravings. I'm feeling better now but it's scary how quickly that "giving in" muscle redevelops when I let it.

I'm going to be a permanent Phase 1.5 with my doctor's blessing. Grains just don't work for me so no more than 1-2 servings of those per week. Carrots and strawberries are back on my list though.

B: Lawn mowing power breakfast - kale, egg with ground chia, salsa, rf cheese, 1 veggie sausage & refried beans
L: giant salad with hummus
S: simple carrot cake smoothie (kefir, carrots & sweetener, flavors)
D: grilled salmon, baby peppers & mushrooms
1 glass of wine

exercise - mow the horrible lawn, bike ride
