It starts (started) tonight!
So far so good...
Made chicken breasts with veggies (just the costco bag of frozen veggies and chicken but after the move that's what we have right now) - used Jamaican Jerk Seasoning from Savory Seasoning Shop in downtown Santa Rosa (awesome shop if you haven't checked out, great seasonings, very diverse cuisines and recipe ideas! Oh and free samples!)
Very easy just took the frozen breasts put them in a pan of a little evoo - I like to put them in the pan flip them over right after and sprinkle seasonings so they stick nicely. Cook for a few minutes flip them over, sprinkle seasoning on other side cook for a few minutes through the veggies on top and sprinkle seasonings and cover with a lid and let steam until tender. Easy and only one pan to clean!
Greg & I were both happy and filled.
From chatting to friends & family and even remembering my own tips from the past I'm going to try and start writing them down...
Kristen: Eat before you meet up with friends, anywhere you go look for salads, drink liquor without the mixers or her (& one of my favs!) vodka, soda water and lime when drinking alcohol. -All those sweet drinks at up really fast! A long island has 780 calories!
Gina: Eat good fats: Avocado, EVOO, almonds, peanut butter, whey protein, small portions and eat every 3 hours.
I like to stay pretty strict 6 days of the week and have a cheat day, for me usually Sunday - I try not to go too crazy usually but what I did try to do was plan cheat days on friends birthdays, special events etc so that when/if I cheated I didn't feel guilty about it. Thing not to do is cheat then keep say your Sunday cheat day. If I wanted a treat during the week I kept it to something like dark chocolate, oatmeal cookie, 100% juice popsicle - anything under say 200-250 calories.
I think that's it for now... Thinking of maybe doing before & after photos hmmm.
