Well, here they are! I'm actually kind of shocked. I haven't felt like I've been doing all that great for the last couple of weeks (my workouts have sucked), but can you see the difference? I SURE CAN!! It's not a huge difference, but my pooch has shrunk a LOT, and I feel like my arms have slimmed down too. But you know where I'm seeing it the most? My waist! Please refer to the "back" pictures at the bottom. My booty hasn't really shrunk much, but my waist looks like it has slimmed down a lot from where I started. YAY!
This has definitely picked up my spirits. It's not a huge jump, but it's a start - and I must be doing something right! I think staying away from the scale is helping too. :) Thanks to everyone for all of your encouragement so far - it has been SO helpful!!
Powerball & a banana. Cup of peach detox herbal tea.
Mixed unsalted nuts & seeds, with some dried fruit.
Salad (arugula, butter lettuce, frozen peas, red pepper, red potatoes & red onions sauteed in olive oil w/ dill & spices, chopped fake chicken patty, organic ranch - about 1 tbsp, water added). This was kind of the most delicious salad I've had in a long time. :)
Iced tea (splash of sweetened raspberry tea added)
Free salad! One of the employees here brought in some leftover salad that his friend had from a catered event. Romaine lettuce, bean shoots, celery, and cucumber - with a spicy Asian vinaigrette. Yum! I had about 1 cup w/ a splash of the dressing.
Buckwheat soba noodles with onions & shitake mushrooms & garlic - sauteed with a splash of Braggs, Teriyaki, and about 1 tbsp hoisin sauce (plus a drizzle of Siraycha sauce). I'm going to post how to make this here - it's really easy!
Cup of black tea w/ unsweetened coconut milk & agave.
1 1/2 hour brisk walk around Wash Park (twice!)
