Challenge Accepted: Week 2

   Week 1 was confusing to say the least. I was disappointed in some of the recipes. Since I’m determined to make this plan work, I quickly devised an alternative that would work for me.  Instead of buying a bunch of ingredients to make a million things, I decided to utilize the cookbook to make one breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipe that I could eat for the week. My second priority was to use the remaining ingredients from last week.



Breakfast – Oatmeal: I’ve been enjoying adding different fruits!

Lunch – Chana Masala: I’m starting to figure out that these recipes are more like a blueprint. Everything I’ve made has been extremely under-seasoned. However, this recipe was so easy to make, even with making the sauce from scratch. Shout-out to my ninja blender for making it all possible! Once I increased the seasonings to taste, it was delicious!!! I also added kale to include some greens.

Dinner – Walnut Tacos: I don’t know how I ended up with so much taco filling. I don’t think I was putting enough in the lettuce shell. By day 10, I was SICK of eating them. I ended up making a taco salad with salsa that was very good. It was also easier to eat without the filling flying out the other end.

The Weekend

   This weekend was particularly eye opening for me. I definitely overdid it meal wise. I always struggle with food in social situations. I spent Saturday evening with friends, drinking wine and eating chips and guacamole. Before I even got to my friend’s house, my husband, and I went to the Chinese Buffet. When I got home, I realized that if there’s food in front of me, I’ll eat. If people are snacking, I want to snack too!

Take Away

   I saw some results in the beginning of the week. It wasn’t until the weekend where my progress stalled. Being in group situations with food is definitely something I need to improve on. I also failed this week by only going to the gym twice. Next week I’ll prioritize fitness, as well as making more conscious decisions when in a group setting. Overall, I still lost 10 lbs in 10 days!
