Lots of updates! Big day yesterday-- and today actually.
Quick snapshot on the day's meals before I get to pizza:
B: greek yogurt with strawberries & a scrambled egg, coffee
Crust: 16oz almond meal/flour, 2 eggs, 4 tbsp olive oil, 3 tbsp butter-- if you attempt this-- make the crust thin!!! I blame my mom for making it thick-- just kidding mom, we needed a rolling pin. :)
Toppings: homemade tomato sauce (5 roma tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, 2 pieces of bacon, tomato paste, simmered for about 40 minutes or so-- it was chunky), chicken sausage, red onion, mixed bell peppers & feta!
Not too bad, almond meal crust is an aqcuired taste I believe, I think its going to make a wonderful pie crust and I have a paleo recipe in mind I hope to make next weekend, and a primal recipe in mind when I can add honey/ agave nectar! :)
Workout: 4 rounds of the following ( 2 before dinner & 2 after) 20 sit ups, 20 squats, 30 second plank.
Big Life news: I found my dress! First place we visited, and actually the first dress I tried on-- I did try on an additional 10 dresses or so and it came within three dresses --- the first dress won. I can't believe it. And while I told the lady I was at my smallest and I wanted to go 2 sizes larger on the dress, she wouldn't let me. So my 6 week diet is probably now my 6 month diet (with some scheduled cheats and red wine allowed). AND, that is not all, Hank and I picked our place: Tennessee River Place. We really contemplated getting a bottle of wine to celebrate, but in the end, we said no. For me, and I think even more so for Hank-- a lot of this challenge is about proving we have the willpower to pass up our cravings. Two weeks in, we've been able to do so. Let's see what the next 4 bring. :) I'm looking forward to it- in a weird way.
B: 1 egg & 1 bacon
L: burger patty from Blue Plate with goat cheese, avocado, lettuce & tomato, a few green beans and a few pieces of fruit
D: chicken, green onion, red onion, bell peppers, spinach & an apple
Took it easy again, 3 rounds of 20 lunges, 20 push ups (on knees- last 10 real), 20 supermans
