today is day 11 in the south beach diet. i am 4.2 pounds down. it is frustrating when you don’t have too much to go…and those extra doughnuts just wont come off my rear. you know what i am saying?
they say you shouldn’t do phase 1 for more than 14 days. i say, “praise jesus!” i have gone 11 LONG days without fruit. you know how hard that is in the summer? next week i plan to hit up the farmer’s market for some fresh strawberries. i can not wait. besides peanut butter…it’s my favorite thing in the world.
like i have said, i dislike eggs. i dislike eggs badly. so every morning i blend all the ingredients together in my magic bullet:
2 tablespoons protein powder
1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt from trader joes
1/2 cup fat free organic skim milk
2 splenda packets
dash of cinnamon
this is what has got me through the mornings. notice there are no eggs. boo to eggs.
i also found this yummy low carb peanut butter cookie recipe. (i had jasen try them…and he ate more than me…if you can believe that. peanut butter and i are BFF.)
1 cup all natural peanut butter (i by it from whole foods in the milk and yogurt section…delish)
1 cup splenda (that is 24 packets)
mix and bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. i like to under bake so they are nice and soft.
today jasen and i went to panera and i was dying for a cinnamon crunch bagel. i passed and i am so proud. because i really wanted one…and i still do.
