Novus, you are so fancy! My Monday through Friday daily menu doesn't change:

smoothee - yogurt/spinach/pumpkin/flaxseed/berries/coconut oil
vegetables/beans/chicken or beef soup with a fruit
veggie salad w/olive oil/ACV/garlic/herbs dressing, tuna or egg salad, rice cake or pumpernickel and V8 juice
snacks - handful of nuts, hunk of cheese

I really don't get too bored eating the same thing like a lot of people do though.

Kris - As long as you enjoy your food, are eating healthy, and are losing weight....that's all that matters. :) I'll probably have some "boring" weeks before the challenge is over. Right now, I'm in a Recipe Obsession phase.

Ok, I admit it. I'm far too lazy to keep an accurate food journal. I know I should. I've done it in the past. And it worked to a certain degree. Did I mention I'm kind of lazy? :dizzy:

Anyway, in an effort to improve my health and wellness journey, I'm going to pop in each day and share my progress, slip-ups and major food based victories. :hun:

I'll be back to post later tonight. Hope everyone has a great on-plan day!

Novus: You make me want to take a cooking class or something! :) Time for me to crack open one the 50 plus cookbooks I own and get to work! I'm inspired.

Whatever works for you is the perfect thing to do! :D

:lol: The recipes I post sound gourmet and complicated but they're really not. If you have some basic cooking skills you should be able to make just about any of them.

I haven't used a cookbook since discovering pinterest...and the thousands of fantastic cooking blogs out there! If my computer crashed, I'd starve to death. Hey.....there's a new weight loss strategy! :dizzy:

LOL. :D I never thought to use pinterest. Sounds like a great way to do meal planning for the week!


So last night, it rained like crazy and the lights were out for a bit. Didn't get a chance to log back on.

Thursday: (3 meals and 1 snack)
Added 2 cups ginger tea and 4 bottles of water
Dinner at 9:30 :mad: (Way too late.)
NO desserts/wine/fast food

*Going to add another snack for Friday. Need more energy for p.m. workout.

Friday: Additional snack of fruit and a granola bar helped immensely. Felt so much better during cardio! :D
