Winter slim-down diet update #1

Just checking in to let you know how le diet, week 1 is going. I have not fallen off the wagon…yet. Nor have I knocked over a market in the middle of the night, desperately searching for waffles, cookies and hot cocoa.  Yaaayyy me!

I’ve spent the last few days free of sugary drinks, no meat, zero alcohol consumption, and no midnight snacking. I was certain this would result in my going absolutely peanuts. Enter gunpowder green tea. Thank you Twinnings! That stuff has enough caffeine in it to keep me rolling through the day and lots of antioxidants so I don’t have to feel guilty drinking a ton of it. Best part: I haven’t been acting like a coffee, sugar deprived monster. And THAT makes everyone around me happy…including myself, of course!

Weight total lost due to this change so far? 1,2kg or approx. 2 lbs. Not too shabby for 3 days.

I guess it’s worth it to say that ALL of the sweet, sugary, wonderful snack-y things are no longer in my house. So when those cravings hit, I have gum or protein shake. And soup…I’ve been eating lots of soup.

Trying to keep up the good work 🙂

Please share any advice or thoughts in the comments section.

Thank you for reading

  1. Whenever I have a craving for an unhealthy snack, I’ll have scrambled eggs and a handful of cherry tomatoes. It’s protein, iron, vitamins… and it makes me feel full for longer.
