So today has been a little better (and less of an emotional rollercoaster as yesterday!) I’ve had my cravings for sweets, but, oddly enough, they’re not as strong as they were day 1/2/3. Progress! I keep trying to stay hydrated. I carry my nalgene around the house with me so I keep drinking water. I also had physical therapy, so that always helps me drink a ton of water.
Another smoothie. Pineapple, frozen strawberries, coconut cream, cranberry juice, chia seeds, almond milk. (Blended up chia seeds get stuck in my teeth. I’m really hot when I smile while drinking this- good thing I’m home alone!)
I made some pretty fantastic drumsticks today for lunch and I am proud- so I’m gonna share the recipe with you. It is NOT fancy, but it tasted better than lunch yesterday. Anywho…
Preheat oven to 375*F. Spray cookie pan with coconut oil spray. Set drumsticks on pan. Drizzle on EVOO. Salt, pepper and italian seasoning. In the oven for 30 minutes. Pour spaghetti sauce on top (leftover from last night). OVen for 20 more minutes. Then pop these babies into a skillet with ghee and roast until they’re nice and crispy on the outside. Boom.
Heres how they looked and boy were they fantastic.
4:45PM I had a lemon Lara bar because I just needed something. (I don’t know why they say not to snack. Its good for your metabolism to eat every few hours….I’m all about small meals instead of large ones. I can’t eat too much in one sitting. I ALWAYS need a doggy bag when I go out to eat!)
I heated up some drumsticks and sliced a potato and baked it into ‘fries’ and put some hot sauce on top. Water with dinner.
I find myself craving food at night a lot, so lately at night I’ve been having some cinnamon apple chips by Bare or a spoonful of almond butter or some raw almonds. Again, I have to eat a little bit here and there so I don’t tip over and faint- I feel like that constantly if I don’t get some food in me every so often!
Anywho, another day down….one step closer to 30!
Have a good one y’all,
