Last week added in Core and Sweat routines in PiYo. I worked hard all week to get my workouts in Monday through Saturday. On top of that I went to the Texas State Fair with N and his dad last Thursday. I stayed on top of eating meals high in (good) fat and low carbs. After leading this lifestyle for the last 2 weeks, the cravings for all the bad things at the fair didn’t seem like much of a challenge to me at all. Part of that may also be that I went into the day with a plan. I had my Shakeology for breakfast, a very light lunch and then we headed out to the fair. I knew the ONE thing I wanted was a Fletcher’s Jalapeno & Cheese Corn Dog. So I indulged! Making the choices all around that indulgence so that I could still maintain what I set out to accomplish! So how did week 2 end?
It ended with more weight lost and a few inches trimmed off here and there! It is so exciting to see the changes and feel them too! The I’m too tired to get off the couch is gone and we are jam packing our weekends! One of the best things is that I am constantly eating BACON, eggs, avocados and mini babybel cheese rounds! These are my go to staples that help me get healthy doses of fat with out too many carbs! What other style of eating encourages you to eat those things!?!
But of course you have to find a balance and sides to go with those meals you are preparing. This is why I wanted to share my little secret to getting a bunch of fruits and veggies at a steal!
I place my order for regular or organic fruits and veggies and it varies week to week what they will get. Fun, because it gives you a great way to try new things! My last basket and additional juicer pack came with: Celery (x2), Lettuce (x2), Beets, Carrots, Ginger, Watercress, Broccoli, Kale (x3), Apples, Pears, Bananas, Zucchini, Watermelon, Pomegranates, Black Seedless Grapes and Lemons. All of those items for a total of $27.50! May not seem like much to some of you, but if you shop Kroger like me and go in and buy these same items there, it will cost you almost DOUBLE at just over $45.
Aren’t these just great looking!?! Those fruits that are a little higher in sugar do not fit into my eating plan, but are a wonderful substitute for processed snacks for my son! He loves these boxes as much as I do!
What other ways do you save on healthy foods for your family?
Any good recipe ideas for me for all of this?
I can’t wait to share this week three with you!
What are your goals this week?
