Yup I am! I posted yesterday so it was saved in my subscribed threads. My goals are to NOT cheat and to do some egg/meat only fasts. Starting that next week!

I already made one recipe posted on the challenge. "jodis pumpkin bake" pretty good, I made it last night since it was so easy!

So to answer your question, lol, i don't eat sweet potato pie so im not sure if it tastes similar. I wouldnt think so though. I feel more like im eating pumpkin bread or something like that.

Thursday!!!

haven't weighed since Tuesday, trying to stay away from the scale, it sabotages me i think with my frusteration! i STILL haven't been to the gym, although this morning i actually had an excuse. We decided to try and teach our son to learn to self soothe and put himself to sleep. I put him down last night a little after 8, he cried for about 10 minutes, then i went in and patted him, then left again, he cried another ten then went to sleep. Then he was up again at 910 for another 20 then back to sleep. He woke up off and on throughout the night but never cried for more than 5 minutes. He was up at 430 so i gave in and got him and fed him, then let him sleep with us. Needless to say i was too tired to go to the gym. Hoping tonight gets better, not to say last night was bad but far from ideal. it was so hard being away from him and hearing him cry

breakfast
sausage cheese coke zero water
snack
veges
lunch
left over chicken stir fry over mashed cauli
dinner
chicken phillies no bread
desert
pumpkin loaf

Those nights are always hard. My son is almost 17 months and still wakes up at least once a night and usually ends up in bed with us.

Hey Lex, I threw a pork roast in the crock pot yesterday I seared it in a pan first then put it in, it was delish, onions, garlic, and a potato for Tony, I put cumin, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder on it, and a little chicken stock in the bottom, now I have some to make pulled pork with LC BBQ sauce, it was good!

I NEVER cook pork aside from bacon and sausage, i should look into that! I did just a roast in the crock pot yesterday. I pureed cauliflower so we could have mashed taters with it.
