Oh dear! Here I go again...losing the same 5 to 7lbs. again! LOL I need to stop the yo-yo'ing!

Hopefully, my weekend will be better food wise. I just need to stay away from the hard cheese and keep myself busy.

Things I have learned today....

Pyruvate is silly to buy.
Egeia Yogurt Cream Cheese tastes better than Laughing Cow Cheese.

June 1st. - The 30th Day Challenge has begun!

Doing exactly what my siggy states...NO CARDIO! Weight training with some core workouts thrown in.

Eating clean with NO CRAP! This means war to my mind and body since 1) I have a very elegant reception to go to on June 30th and 2) a Dance Cruise on July 6th.

I want to dress to impress based upon my good fitness. (OK...that was bad!)

Anyway, this is what I plan on eating today. Keeping It Simple Sugar!

Breakfast: 2 Fried eggs on top of Low Carb Pita Bread spread with some Laughing Cow Cheese. Almond/Coconut unsweetened milk for a beverage.

Snack: 1 medium hard boiled egg, 6 almonds

Lunch: Green salad with grilled chicken, balsamic vinaigrette dressing

Snack: 1 medium hard boiled egg, 6 almonds

Postworkout - 1 low carb pita bread spread with laughing cow cheese and Boca burger. G2 Gatorade to wash it down. (Need the electrolytes for tough workouts. one of the main reasons why I feel so depleted after. Not enough electrolytes!)

Dinner: 2oz. of sweet potato, 3 scrambled eggs over a piece of low calorie toast. Spread with some EGEIA Yogurt cream cheese.

Now that tonight is covered. The weekend is a whole other post!

Day 4 and so far so good!

Water weight is dropping (157lbs. as of this a.m.), I have more energy in my step, and am sleeping a lot better.

Day 5 and still going strong!

Here is what I am geared to do in the next few days. Planning is very much on the front burner.

Eliminate:
All wheat-based products (all breads, all breakfast cereals, noodles, pasta, bagels, muffins, pancakes, waffles, donuts, pretzels, crackers), oat products (oatmeal, oat bran), cornstarch-based products (sauces or gravies thickened with cornstarch, prepared or processed foods containing cornstarch, cornmeal products like chips, tacos, tortillas), sugary soft drinks, candies
Enjoy unlimited:
Vegetables-except potatoes; fresh or frozen, never canned
Raw nuts and seeds-raw almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pistachios, Brazil nuts, cashews; dry-roasted peanuts (not roasted in oil); pumpkin and sunflower seeds
Healthy oils (unheated)-olive, flaxseed, coconut, avocado, walnut
Meats-red meats, pork, fish, chicken, turkey, eggs. (Consider free-range, grass-fed and/or organic sources.)
Non-wheat grains-ground flaxseed, chia seeds
Teas, coffee, water, unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or coconut water
Cheeses—real cultured cheeses only (not Velveeta or single-slice processed cheese)
Avocado or guacamole; hummus; unsweetened condiments, e.g., mayonnaise, mustard, oil-based salad dressings; ketchup without high-fructose corn syrup; pesto, tapenades; olives
Limited:
Fruit-No more than 2 servings a day (one serving is a level handful), preferably in this order (best first): berries of all varieties, citrus, apples, nectarines, peaches, melons. Minimize bananas, pineapples, mangoes, and grapes
Fruit juices-only real juices and in minimal quantities (no more than 2-4 oz)
Dairy products-No more than 1 serving per day of milk, cottage cheese or yogurt, unsweetened (Fat content does not matter.)
Legumes/beans; peas; sweet potatoes and yams; rice (white and brown); soy
Dark chocolates-70-85% cocoa or greater; no more than 40 grams (approximately 2 inches square) per day
Sugar-free foods-preferably stevia-containing, rather than aspartame
Never:
Fried foods
Fast foods
Hydrogenated “trans” fats
Cured meats-hot dogs, sausages, bacon, bologna, pepperoni
High-fructose corn syrup containing foods; honey; agave syrup; sucrose
Processed rice, rice flour or potato products-rice crackers, rice cereals, pretzels, white breads, breakfast cereals, potato chips
Fat-free or low-fat salad dressings
”Gluten-free” foods
Quick tips:
For healthy breakfast choices, consider ground flaxseed as a hot cereal (e.g., with soy milk, milk, or unsweetened almond milk; blueberries, strawberries, etc.). Also consider eggs; raw nuts; cheese; consider having “dinner for breakfast,” meaning transferring salads, cheese, chicken, and other “dinner” foods to breakfast.
Add 1 tsp or more of taste-compatible healthy oil to every meal. For example, mix in 1 tbsp flaxseed oil to ground flaxseed hot cereal. Or add 2 tbsp olive oil to eggs after scrambling. Adding oils will blunt appetite.
If you suspect you have a wheat “addiction,” use the first week to add healthy oils to every meal and reduce the amount of wheat by half. In the second week, aim for elimination of wheat while maintaining the oils.
Reach for raw nuts first as a convenient snack.

I don't usually post at LCF much anymore. Busy with other things, etc. etc.

I am avoiding sugar, flour, cheese, and other bad for me items. The scale is reflecting my good work.

I am officially down to 157lbs.!!!! Woo Hoo!

My food consists mainly of either turkey or regular bacon, beef, whole eggs, egg whites, roast chicken thighs or breasts, tuna fish, mayo, avocado, lettuce, almond milk, and Jay Robb's Egg White Protein for the moment.

Another long week but I can do this! No wheat, limited dairy, and I have to stop drinking. It has to be done. I don't need it.

Shoulders/bicep workout tonight!

Back again. In the past 2 years, my weight has gone up and down. I have to go back to what works for me and stick with it. I don't know if it's WW or not but I need to do this every day. Eating right and staying active for not only my sake but my family's too.
