It's Wednesday already.
It's been a week of blood, sweat, and tears.
My start weight: 242
My goal: 239
My weight this morning: 237
Can you say "YAY!"?
You were really wanting the gift certificate weren't you?
Goal for next Wednesday: 235.5
If I don't make it...a $50 Amazon.com gift card to the first commenter.
I am on day 8 of sugar-freeness.
The cupcakes were a challenge, but I'm happy to report that I didn't have nary a one.
Today I'm baking all my Christmas cookies.
Going to a Cookie Exchange on Thursday.
Aaron's birthday request is a Heath Bar Cheesecake for Saturday.
I'm crazy aren't I?
My resolve right now is iron-clad. I know I won't eat a single cookie, or a slice of cheesecake.
My energy level is back up, I feel great. Fruit is ridiculously sweet to me right now.
I don't want to just 'abstain' from sugar. I want to be sugar FREE. As in, I don't almost cry at the sight of a cupcake. I want to have it in the house, make it, give it to friends, and not feel any emotional pain in the process. Call me crazy, but I think I can do it.
Will I do this forever?
I don't know.
But I'm going to do it again today.
My next demon is Diet Coke. I have about 8 cans left in the house, and then it's bye bye to that.
Pray for me.
I am preparing a separate post to thank you all so much for your incredible support.
I'm still shaking my head at all the comments and emails.
You are the reason I was so successful this week.
Before I leave you, I wanted to share a scrumptious recipe with you.
Scrumptious is a very underused word if you ask me.
Turkey Breakfast Sausage
1 # of ground turkey BREAST
6 T rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 egg whites
4 T fresh parsley
1 t fresh sage
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
dash of red pepper
Mix the above well. Form into 8 - 2 oz patties. Cook in a skillet sprayed with Pam.
2 patties are a serving.
(I use half the amount of dried spices when I don't have fresh available).
Today I get a splurge meal. One meal of whatever the heck I want.
I think I'm going to have deep fried bacon, wrapped in bacon, with a side order of bacon.
And a Diet Coke.
