Weekends are just harder and not because of temptation but because of the need to eat on a schedule. All of the meals and supplements need to be spaced just so and you need to plan ahead for that if you are going to be out and about. I’m a big fan of the Reset in a Crunch menu on the weekends because the stuff on there is fairly easy to pull together without too much forethought. It definitely seems to be my go-to on Saturdays and Sundays.
I’ve made the decision NOT to dine out while I am doing this program and while I know some people who do, it’s just as easy for me to eat at home and to keep it all in check. I mean it’s just 21 days and I’ll be back to my old haunts (and hopefully be making better decisions) in no time! I actually sent my husband and kids off for a lunch date and stayed home to eat – I thought it was a bit of an everybody wins situation…kids spend time with Dad who is gone all week and I get alone time and can stay on track. Mwahahahaha!
Awesome notable of the weekend? Wearing some super skinny pants that fit like a glove (as opposed to a sausage casing)! Now if that isn’t motivation, I don’t know what is!
Here are Saturday’s meals:
Breakfast: Fresh Fruit
Lunch: Microgreen Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Avocado (this never gets old)
Optional Snack: Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with Blueberries and Flax (I dreamed of this throughout the movie I went to see while everyone around me at popcorn – totally worth the hold out!)
Dinner: Quinoa-Lentil Pilaf and Steamed Broccoli (I had enough leftovers from the night before to do this meal all over again)
I did miss my Power Greens today but there could be worse things…like diving into that bucket of popcorn!
I missed my Shakeology snack today and am so sad about it! It’s honestly the highlight of my day even amongst all this delicious food. It’s that special chocolateyness that is missing during these three weeks. This will NOT happen tomorrow! For the first time this entire program I am having cravings for sugar and I’m gonna chalk it up to my missing Shakeo.
In other news, this might be my favorite dinner so far. I will definitely be making the Coconut Collard Greens again.
Breakfast: Fresh Fruit (while my family had donuts)
Lunch: Microgreen Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds & Avocado
Dinner: Mediterranean Roasted Beets, Coconut Collard Greens and Toasted Millet
9 days to go! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…
