I know I need more photos but in all honesty I am using this as more of a personal journal than anything else. I want to stay motivated so this is helping for sure.
Can I just tell you how damn proud I am of myself?? Last night I baked cookies for a co-worker and had no desire to eat ANY. Thats amazing! I am a great baker if I do say so myself :)
My phantom hunger pains are gone
I no longer dream of food
I dream instead of losing even more weight because today I weigh 11 pounds less!! Holla !
You can tell in my face and my waist for sure. I can tell based on my energy level and how my clothes are starting to fit.
Last night for an after work meal I swung by my local grocery store and picked up some pears.
I can not believe how good pears taste juiced!
My drink was a "kitchen sink" of strawberries, raspberries, red apples, pears and carrots and once I served it over ice (cocktail shakers DO come in handy for non-alocholic beverages I learned) it was fabulous.
I also have successfully gotten into the habit after only 2 days of cutting up all my breakfast and lunch fruits/veggies the night before and then storing them in a chilled mixing bowl covered with a wet paper towel in the fridge so they are ready to go in the morning. What was taking me like 25 minutes is now cut down to 10 and that leaves plenty of time to get ready and get to work like I like.
I can not believe I have made it 5 days!!! This really isn't so hard once you get the hang of it. I can not wait to see where I am on day 10!!
