Wow! Life has definently been a whirlwind over here and I have truly missed posting to my blog as well as reading/commenting on all of yours!!! The last two weeks have been the busiest that I have been in a very long time. Something every.... single..... day.......and sometimes 4-5 things to get done outside of our house. Whew!!! Things are finally slowing up. I knew I was getting further behind with each day that went by - we were up early most days, and went to bed late so I was exhausted during the time of day that I normally post. When I finally logged in today I couldn't believe that my last post had been almost 2 weeks ago!
Ready for a funny story..... This morning I was so excited to get up, make my morning shake, and get to this post before the kids got up. I had taken the lid off of the blender while it was running to add the coconut oil. Well... are you ready for this.....I had just added the coconut oil and the power went out. It came back on about 5 seconds later, but only for about 2 seconds which was just enough time to shoot our shakes all over the kitchen counter, cabinets, floor, me, etc... (remember the lid had been off!!?!?). It was still dark outside, so with the power being out, I was going to wait until the sun came up to clean it up. My husband came downstairs and cleaned it up, using a small headlamp for light. He also took a few photos with his phone so I will try to show those tomorrow. The power was out for over 2 hours - which meant NO INTERNET EITHER - so I was unable to work on my post before the kids woke up. What are the chances that this would happen??? Actually it gave my husband and I a good chuckle after the fact!
Anyways.... Let me bring you up to date on how I have been doing on the BFC:
Week 1 Weigh-In (Friday, April 27th) = 154.8 - down .6 lbs. this week for a total loss of .6 lbs.
Week 2 Weigh-In (Friday, May 4th) = 154.0 - down .8 lbs this week for a total loss of 1.4 lbs.
Nothing earth shattering but I am really getting the hang of this. My kitchen is stocked up with BFC foods and snacks and I am beginning to feel more at ease when ordering out at restaurants.
I wanted to share with you one of my favorite snacks when I am wanting something sweet. I got this recipe from Jorge Cruise's Fast Track book. Take 1 Tbsp of almond butter and spread it on a tiny plate (I like the MaraNatha brand of almond butter (no-stir) and I prefer crunchy over creamy). Spray whipped cream on top.
Now this part isn't in Jorge's book, but this time I grated a very small amount of dark chocolate on top. All I used was the part that you see missing from the square:
The chocolate really didn't add much in the way of sugars and carbs but really added a nice touch to the dessert. Here is a photo of the finished product. D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
Total S/C count for this dessert: 2/1 (this number can vary based on how much, if any, chocolate you grate on top).
Well that's about all for now. I promise to post again in the next day or two. Have a great day!
