I was so close to failing on Day 2 of my challenge— I just started yesterday.
I fell asleep while I was laying with my daughters and waiting for them to fall asleep. I honestly don’t know who fell asleep first, but I got a text around 9 that woke me up. I woke up knowing I should get my ass up to get shit done and not fail so early on in challenging myself. I toyed with just staying in the comfy bed for about 30 mins, going in and out of sleep.
So, I finally forced myself out of bed to not only blog, but to also get rid of the never ending pit full of dishes.
I guess you can say I really do want to change my ways. That was one victory that felt great.
So, if you’re on a weight-loss Journey like I am, just look at the bigger picture. I’m learning to say Fuck You to all the excuses, which include “I’m tired!” If you and I want it bad enough, let’s do it by any means necessary. Fuck the bullshit. Lets get better everyday and keep challenging the fuck out of our brain. Spring is a few months away and summer comes right after.
Now that I’m done with all my fucks and pep talking, let’s get into my meals for today.
Breakfast: Strawberry Watermelon Smoothie Bowl
Recipe for Strawberry Watermelon Recipe Bowl:
-1/2 C Frozen Strawberries
-1/2 C Frozen Watermelon
-1 Frozen Banana
-1/2 C Vanilla Almond Milk
*add more frozen fruit if it is too watery after you blend it
You can add toppings of your choice. I added the usual plus a few fresh blueberries and pomegranate.
Lunch: Semi Greek Salad w/ Gyro Meat
Snack: Cinnamon Fuji Apples w/ Honey PB & Cacao Nibs
Dinner: Garlic Butter Steak, Honey Brussels, Sautéed Mushrooms
I didn’t have a dessert today because I spent all my calories. So , that concludes Day 2 of what I’m eating to lose weight.
Before I sign off—I want to start sharing more nutritional information and facts about why I eat specific foods and take specific supplements. I feel like you all would benefit and maybe would like to add some of these to your arsenal. So, I’ll work on sprinkling more in the blog posts to come.
I’m clocking out. Much Love 💕
