At dinner I got to thinking that I would like to challenge myself to really jump-start my weight loss. I need to lose a few pounds to help with my motivation! (I keep buying bathing suits for our honeymoon...but it's not working!) So, the fiancee and I came up with a 'salad challenge' - eating salads (of some sort) every night for a week or so. Could be a plain salad, caesar, grilled chicken, steak, shrimp, chopped, etc, etc. I feel like salad can be the perfect meal - veggies, carbs, protein, fat and fruits. I'd like to go longer than a week, but I think I will get bored with salad every single night. I'm hoping that if I reserve my carbs for the afternoon and morning, then go carb free for the evening, maybe my body will react and I will lose a couple of pounds. I don't know about you, but if I see a noticable difference in my body, then I am super-motivated to keep it going. That's the extra push I need right now. So, I did well last night, tonight we're headed to the mall to pick out the tuxes for the wedding and then having dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. Easy peasy. They have a great salad bar and great entree salads. Maybe I'll even find the nerve to take a picture in the restaurant!! Who knows.... The challenge begins!!
On to the eats for today - a delightful apple and strawberry-banana Chobani. love love love Tomorrow is pineapple! My favorite! I always save the best for last, so silly, but I'm really excited.... Sad, I know, but it's the little things in life that make me truly happy ;)
Nice side salad for lunch - cheese and radishes with Ken's olive oil and vinegar dressing.
And homemade lentil soup - 1 cup for 3 points. The MIL made it, she's a really good cook, just like her son :)
