The last two days I had to work a bunch of hours so I basically stuck to my normal breakfast. I had a variety of veggies, meats, nuts, seeds and fruits and of course eggs for meals.
Today I am making Thai Beef Stew with Cauliflower Rice for dinner. I made this the last go around and it is so delicious. Unfortunately, the hubby doesn't like curry so I make him American Beef Stew as well. It takes about 2 hours to prepare all this, so I only do these on my day off.
I have not seen any new weight loss on the scale, except the original 3 from the first 3 days, but then that is why they don't want you to check the scale in the book! Because it takes time. I feel tremendously better inside with all the water, Kevita and tea intake. I also know from reading the book, that the carb flu symptoms will go away now. My sleep has improved immensely! It is deep and fulfilling. I am a little sluggish still while my body is learning to switch from carb burn to fat burn. I think that takes another 7 days or so. Then the energy will start to pop and if I want to start exercising that would be the time. I changed my availability at work yesterday too. That way I can have more of a schedule for myself and attend some regular yoga classes and such. I can tell that I am much stronger this time around. I am more focused on this and I know I will be successful! I pray that my hands will heal in this whole process. They are so sensitive and dry and itchy no matter how much lotion I use.
After rereading some of my past blogs, one of the things I did wrong was to eat fruit alone. Now I know the best way to eat fruit is with a protein. I also ate dairy last time, although it was grass fed, I am staying away from it this time until 60 days.
