Woohoo!! Day 9. Tomorrow is the last day of the Cleanse part of the challenge. Thursday starts the Max portion. I will give more details then but it basically involves drinking different things and taking different supplements. The food will still be the same.
Speaking of food, I had a very interesting dinner last night. I was visiting a friend so I decided to go through a Subway that has a drive-thru. It was raining and hard to hear when ordering but I told the girl that I wanted the carved turkey on a chopped salad, no cheese. She asked “What veggies?” I told her I wanted banana peppers and jalapenos. She then asked if I wanted it chopped which I thought was an odd question because it is a chopped salad. I said yes. I asked if she had any light dressings and she said Light Mayo which would’ve been gross on a salad so I said no dressing. I paid for it and glance at it through the bag. I only saw the very top and it looked OK. I went to my friend’s house, opened it and there was NO lettuce!! She gave me a “salad” consisting of chopped turkey and peppers. I guess when she asked about the veggies, I didn’t specify the lettuce. I assumed that when you say you want a salad, the lettuce is a given!! But you know what happens when you assume things. It actually ended up being different and good. It didn’t even need any salad dressing. But still….wow…
I do my grocery shopping online and I use Giant Eagle’s curbside express. It is so easy, I just pull up, they bring my groceries to me and I leave. One thing I have noticed is that my bill is getting less each week. The first week I had to stock up on spices and meat and just about everything because I used to eat out way too much. The 2nd week I just had to replace a few things. This week I have even fewer things to replace. That is nice because I always thought eating healthy was expensive. Anyone who has a Giant Eagle near you, boneless chicken breasts are on sale until Thursday. They are $1.99 a pound. I am stocking up! last week I paid 5.99 a pound! I bought some carb smart wraps so I can make fajitas this coming week. They are multi grain and on the Max portion of the challenge, I am allowed that in moderation. Yay!
I ate the same things as I always do today with one exception. Instead of an apple for breakfast, I had a handful of nuts. Tonight, I am going to my 4 year old niece’s talent show. She is going to sing, so it should be adorable. I will not able to have dinner until afterward though. I will probably eat some fruit before I leave work just to tide me over.
