Protein Balls Never Tasted So Good!

First off, I have to post a very cute picture…

Sleepy-Superheroes

These two little cuties have been in their Halloween costumes for 3 days straight!  The first thing my 2 year old says in the morning is, “I wanna be HULK!,” and my 4 year old thinks he really IS Captain America.  It’s adorable and I just want to eat them both up all day long.  I wish I could just freeze them and have a perma 2 year old and 4 year old forever.  They are so much fun.

Moving on.  I’m still going strong with my little diet dealy thing.  I’m almost done with the hardest part though!  Ya-hoo!  On Monday, we get to add fruit in.  I can’t wait!

So far, I’ve lost about 5 pounds.  I lost 4-5 pretty quickly, but I’ve just been “holdin’ steady” for the past week or so.  However, I’m feeling hormonal right now and I usually gain 5 pounds when I’m hormonal.  Sooooo, “holdin’ steady” is just fine with me!

I’ve been making Protein Balls lately and I gotta say, they have never tasted better to me!  I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!

I realized my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Balls are legal on this diet if I leave out the chocolate chips!  I am so happy and they are so so yummy!  I need to remind myself that although they are legal, they still have calories!  I sorta OD’ed on them the other day! LOL.

My kids all love protein balls too.  I like to leave a few in the car when I go to the gym so I can eat them after a workout.  If I have my two littlest ones with me, I always need to remember to bring extra for them.  They love protein balls!

Other than protein balls, I’ve pretty much been eating the same thing.  There is only so much you can do with eggs, chicken, nuts and veggies!

Lately, I’ve been having this for breakfast,

Eggs-chicken-and-avocado
1 whole egg +4 egg whites scrambled and topped with a little low-sugar ketchup.  I have it with a side of chicken topped with Wholly Guacamole.

This is so yummy.  I especially love the guacamole.  We made grilled chicken for dinner the other night.  We purposely grilled A TON so we could keep the leftovers in the freezer.  Love it.

I had this for lunch the other day,

Chicken-avocado-and-protein-shake
Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Shake with a side of Fajita filling (chicken, peppers and onions from the freezer) topped with Wholly Guacamole.

Okay, I know this is a TON of food, but I was starving.  Figuring out what to eat on this diet is kind of a pain, so when I DO eat….I make it count!

Well, that’s the latest!  I will just keep trudgin’ along with this diet and keep you all posted!

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday night!

Well I am officially on Day #5 of my “healthy cleanse.”  Yay!  I actually really love doing things like this.  It’s tough, but I know a little self discipline is good for me! I already live a pretty healthy lifestyle, but I know my “healthy lifestyle” can quickly become a little too casual and comfy if I’m not careful.  I told y’all I had 5+ pounds creep up on my lately.  I don’t like that! Soooo, I think it’s a good idea to jump start the system every once in a while!  In fact, I think I’ll do this cleanse Continue Reading…

Still Pluggin’ Away…

eggs, ham and low carb tortilla

Well, I’ve now completed day 6 of my low-carb diet. I must say that I really really love it! It is hard, but it’s so so good for me! **************** I’ve been really surprised by how “not hungry” I’ve been. I can honestly say that I don’t crave carbs…at all. I still think they sound yummy and I would love to eat them, but I don’t crave them. In fact, my body feels very very stable.  I love it. When I get hungry, I just feel hungry, not out of control and ravenous! It seemed like before if I got Continue Reading…

Livin’ the Low Carb Life!

Well, I have successfully completed day 2 of my little low-carb diet! Yay! It hasn’t been easy, but it really hasn’t been too hard either (I know, my opinion may change in a few weeks!) Over the weekend, I wrote out my diet “plan” for the upcoming week.  I basically chose 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches to switch between and then chose a dinner for each night.  I also wrote down several snack options. It’s really helped me to have a “plan.”  That way, I’m not stuck wondering what to eat, especially when I’m starving! I also made sure my Continue Reading…
