Week 3 wasn’t that big of struggle. Towards the end of the week, I was so sick of cooking and washing dishes. I mean I was so over it! Other than that I felt great. I apologize ahead of time for the crappy pictures taken.
Day 15- Monday
Before work I had 2 eggs with a cajun sausage and a big bowl of blueberries and grapes. For lunch, my husband and I had a carnitas salad from Chipotle. Earlier in the day I made some chicken in the crockpot. I added taco seasoning (homemade) and a jar of compliant salsa. For dinner we had a salad.
Day 16- Tuesday
Breakfast included eggs with chorizo, leftover asparagus, avocado, and sliced bananas with coconut flakes. Since I had a pretty big breakfast, I had lunch really late lunch. I had a big salad with the crockpot chicken and a bowl of watermelon. I didn’t end up eating dinner.
Day 17- Wednesday
Repeated breakfast and lunch this day. I picked up a shaken iced green tea from Starbucks during my walk downtown. I was not in the mood for whatever I had planned (burgers) for dinner. I ended up cooking some beef with peppers and onions. I also made an amazing guacamole and roasted green beans. I made it to the gym after work this day.
Breakfast and lunch were repeated one last time. Made it to the gym after work and had a coconut cashew Larabar. Dinner included pork chops, guac, potatoes, and cucumbers.
Day 19- Friday
I made an omelette with bell peppers and onions. I also had roasted green beans and some grapes. I headed to the mall after work. While I was there I got a passion tea from Starbucks. I also had a pecan pie Larabar (my favorite flavor). I accidentally skipped out on lunch since I spent so much time at the mall. For dinner I made some carne asada thin steaks. I also made breakfast potatoes with sliced tomatoes. I also had some watermelon.
Day 20- Saturday
I was really over cooking this day. The struggle was real. I made it to the gym and grocery store in the morning. I had a coconut cream pie Larabar after the gym. I bought some ground pork to make my own breakfast sausage. I made a few patties with 2 eggs and a banana. For late lunch/early dinner I had leftovers from the previous day. I also made some delicious buffalo wings. You can find the recipe here. I was so impressed with the taste. I also had a handful of apple chips.
Day 21- Sunday
I made it to the gym first thing in the morning around 8am. I had some leftover ground pork so I made a scramble with potatoes. This day was just as exhausting as the previous day. I ended up have a late lunch/early dinner again and cooking the same beef as Wednesday. I also had a big bowl of cantaloupe.
I skipped a meal several days this week and I am a little disappointed I did that. I didn’t starve myself, I just waited too long to eat. It’s recommended you don’t eat 2-3 hours prior to bedtime. I definitely would have eaten within two hours so I just went to bed instead.
I can’t believe I am so close to the end! My body is feeling great. So far I have planned this next week well. Please stay tuned for week 4 recap and results. Well, I must go wash dishes now.
