Aaron and I have started the atkins diet. A diet consisting of (for the first two weeks) nothing but meats, cheese, oils, eggs, very few greens. As I read the book, it also says if you like Caffeine you should kick it at this point so you can wean yourself off of that as your weaning off carbs. So, we took our list, went to the grocery and loaded up! We spend about 20 bucks more than a normal weeks groceries (I wonder due to the amount of meats)... anyways, I did stock up on sugar free jello, heavy whipping cream, and sweet n low. I found a little recipe if you whip up heavy cream with sweetener and dallop on top of jello and its a nice little treat. Also, instead of like chips if I need a snack, Im gonna eat pork rinds (they have BBQ!!)
So, today is day one of my diet- I feel really tired and grumpy. I crave a diet coke so bad, and I'm having a really bad headache. The vitamins I am taking are supposed to kick in within the next few days and help make me feel better!
I will write here what I ate today for each meal so you guys can get a feel for what exactly I ate today!
Breakfast- 1 hardboiled egg, 4 slices of bacon, a piece of mild cheddar cheese
Lunch- Chef Salad with egg, ham, bacon,cheese, homeade ranch, cucumber
Dinner- 2 steaks, 1 cup salad with ranch, 2 pieces of colby cheese
Snack- BBQ pork rinds and cheddar cheese stick
Snack #2- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream sweetened and fluffed. (Like coolwhip).
I didn't feel hungry at all today, just really tired. I will post pics of my meals tomorrow I just forgot to bring my camera in the kitchen this time!
Also, good news- we are heading to Florida in less than three weeks!!!! I am so excited to be able to get away with my hubby and my in-laws are so sweet for inviting us along, they really mean so much to us!
I am still jobless @ this point, but I am taking time to carefully plan our dieting (hopefully for more success) and I look for jobs like 4 times a day, I am hoping something comes up soon. Really soon.
Life is going pretty okay right now, just struggling but doing it as best as we can!
This is a little milkshake thing (it has one net carb). It honestly tasted like strawberry flavored water, def will not spend 6.00 for 4 of these things ever. They were not good at all. lol.
This was SOOOOO worth the 64 cents!!! It tastes like a pina coloda!! :) It's got the fizziness I like about a coke, and the sweetness without the carbs, cals, or caffeine. I am glad I stocked up on these!
