I made it through day 6 of the 24 day challenge. Let me just say that today was THE hardest day yet. Today was my nieces’ birthday party. Eva turns 6 on May 9 and Ella turns 4 on May 11. The picture above was the bane of my existence today. That, my friends is a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. One of my favorite things to eat in the whole world and I couldn’t have any of it. My sister also bought donuts from Jolly Pirate which are my favorite donuts! I was good though. My brother in law grilled a chicken breast for me and I had salad. Then while everyone was eating cake, I had watermelon and pineapple.
It’s weird though, even after seeing all those sugary snacks being eaten, that is not what I am craving. I am craving noodles and corn. I haven’t had a carb in 6 days and I am dying! When I get to the Max phase (Day 11), I am allowed wheat pasta. I don’t like wheat pasta but I just may have to have a little bit.
Weekends are going to be hard for me. I am a person who likes to sleep in and when I have something scheduled like I did today, it is hard to fit everything in. Today I woke up at 1. By the time I let the dogs out and got a shower and dressed, I was having my spark at almost 3pm. My sister was having food at 4:30, so I couldn’t fit breakfast in there. I had lunch at my sister’s and then tonight around 10pm I had a second chicken breast and a pickle for dinner. I will have an apple with natural peanut butter for a snack and probably go to bed late tonight.
Tomorrow is mother’s day and my mom and I are going to my grandma’s to bring her dinner. My mom wanted to get KFC. I think I am going to get a carver turkey salad from Subway and see how that is. Then back to the grind on Monday.
Here is a recipe I found:
Keep on truckin’!
