It's over!

Well three weeks has come and gone! The first day I was on the diet I had this freak out because I felt like it was going to be forever. Well now it's over and to celebrate Treven and I went out to breakfast this morning, waffles and hashbrowns! YUM! I thought so much about having chocolate and sugar the first day I was off and now I'm not in the mood for it, go figure. All in all I lost seven pounds which I am so happy about, I started at 134.5 and I am down to 127.5, my overall goal is to get back down between 115-120. So here are my food goals;

Breakfast needs to be something other than sugary cereal. A breakfast I discovered long ago was plain Greek yogurt with some honey and berries. I need to get back to things like that.

Lunches need to be more than a pb&j. That's where using the foods I ate in my diet will be key, like stir fries and big salads with lots of veggies.

Dinners again just keeping more veggies on the plate than things like boxed pastas.

More water, less soda. And sticking with my gym routine, now it's time to get serious about the tri-athalon that's coming up the end of June.
I'm glad I did this, I feel like it's really helped to change my eating habits for the better and made me realize I don't have to go out to eat and get appetizers, and desserts. And my main incentive for keeping it off? Not doing this cleanse/diet again!
