Haystar's 3 Week (Plus) Challenge - Day Two...er Three!

I was craving a little cheese last evening and felt guilty after eating them but I still felt hungry after my dinner. My workouts are getting tougher and I like it that way but I expend a lot of energy!

Today's menu:
B: Multi-Grain Wrap (LC one's all gone!) with 1/4 black beans, 2% mozzarella cheese sprinkled on top with 2 egg whites and red peppers. Banana
S: Green Apple w/string cheese and cinnamon
L: Mixed green salad w/1/4 black beans, brown rice, and shrimp
S: Cottage cheese w/fruit
D: ??

I think I am near TOM and I always crave cheese! LOL

Oh, and another intense workout at 5pm!!

Thanks for all your support! :)

As I type this, my cats are staring at me because they want shrimp!

Busy, busy, busy!

I restarted my clean eating to a great start yesterday.

B: Organic 365 Oatmeal with flax and banana
S: Sliced green apple, string cheese and cinnamon
L: LC Wrap with hummus, mixed peppers, lettuce, broccoli, grape tomatoes, and shrimp, sprinkled with basil and EVOO
S: Cottage cheese w/pineapple
D: Salad w/mixed veggies, feta cheese, and Boca Burger patty.

For supplements: 2,000mg of Fish Oil (Morning and Evening)
One 5mg. Scoop of Branched Amino Acids

My stack: One Atro-Phex (BSN) and One Tight FEM (S.A.N.)

Cardio was 30 minutes on elliptical trainer (interval) and 35 minutes of weight training. I was able to lift heavier weights with little struggle!

With work, going to the gym, and studying nutrition that I haven't had time for my blog! I gotta hold myself accountable!

I am starting a 3-week challenge with Haystar from Low-Carb friends. I can't let her nor anyone else down, including me!

Can I survive without cheese?

I think it is possible considering if I don't buy it, I won't eat it! I haven't weighed myself since last week because the scale can jump anywhere from 145-149lbs. I don't know if my body is rebelling because I haven't been this thin since when I was a teenager or I'm eating junk on some subconscious level. HA! I haven't so much as eaten a cookie or a piece of milk chocolate in a long time. I'm enjoying my veggies and eating good protein, basically eating clean. I wish my friends would put down their french fries, stop eating processed junk, and give up soda completely! Maybe once they really see me they will finally be convinced! (Itsy-bitsy yellow polka-dot bikini!!)

Also, still going strong on the weight training! Stay tuned.

Internet Surfer Girl...

This week, I've been riding the waves of the fitness/weigh-loss /political world. Where have I been?

Low Carb Friends (Cool site!)

Kimkins (I'm not linking to that site! Forgetaboutit!)
The negative side of Kimkins - lots of blogs for that one. You literally can get a headache from reading about the founder and con-artist Heidi Diaz. I wouldn't be surprised to see Chris Hansen from Dateline NBC covering this story any time soon.

Bodybuilding.com (I get my supplements here.)

HotAir.com (Political) - Get your fill of the presidential candidate mishaps here!

HeatReviewService.com - The low down on frozen foods! Fun site!

There are too many to choose from! Here I go again!

Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, LDN is one of those reasons. She showcases her best plans on her website. Go ahead and take a look. You will not be disappointed!

Good Luck!
