My diet on the other hand is still a work in progress. I started out pretty good today. A protein shake made for me in the morning by my wonderful man of the house. He gets up pretty early for work and blends me up one before I get up. Lucky gal? Why yes I am. It is just a scoop of Dymatize Nutrition Banana Nut protein powder, one banana, three to four strawberries, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and enough vanilla almond milk to get the consistency you want. This literally is the only smoothie I will drink. I'm just not a smoothie fan.
Here is the protein powder we like.
This stuff is good. I have tried Vanilla and I have tried Chocolate. They all taste like chalk. I just can't get past that after taste. But I can't even tell this stuff is in there. And as I'm thinking about it. I really think it makes my smoothie taste way better.
Then came the rest of the day. I snacked on Newman's Own oreo cookies. Yes, they are organic. But no, they are in no way a part of a healthy weight loss diet. Strike one.
I can't even remember what I ate for lunch. Strike two.
I had a small 7" pizza for dinner with mushrooms, black olives, pepperoni, tomato slices, and a crap load of cheese. Veggies were a good choice but all that cheese was not. Cheese. Just make that three strikes.
Feeling guilty I finished off my night with a lot of make-up water. I chugged ice water like it was going to melt my previous moments of weakness magically. Maybe it at least washed it out of my system quicker or diluted it just a teeny bit. (Wishful thinking right there).
I vow to start fresh tomorrow.
No cookies. One cookie. No cheese laden pizzas.
