Today is day one. And I’m blogging about it in order to stay accountable. My bipolar depression and anxiety are screaming at me “This isn’t possible, Holly. In fact, why are you even trying?”
I say: “NO. I am a warrior.”
So I swallowed those lies, pulled my big girl panties on, and made breakfast:
> Sliced white mushrooms
> Chopped onions
> 2 Eggs – scrambled
> Salt n’ Peppa to taste
> Tall cup of Starbucks Verdana black coffee
Honestly – even though I love all the ingredients – it’s tasted like absolute poop, however I know better than to let this be a deciding factor – because I am so completely addicted to sugar, I know that my tastebuds are not used to actual food. This will pass.
While I was at it, I also prepped 9 hardboiled eggs. Any prep work helps! This is one of the reasons I decided to start on a Sunday – it’s always hard for me to get into it on day one, when it’s on a Monday, what with the work week being stressful and all, so I wanted to give myself a leg up, and I tell you what – it’s working!
Already feeling my insides beginning to work better. In the words of my husband, “It doesn’t take long!”
Smoothie in my Nutri-Bullet (GrapeBerry):
> Frozen Berry Fruit Mix
> Mott’s Natural Applesauce
Doing a little better now! Shoveled my dinner in my mouth and said, “I am a warrior!”
Almond Crusted Chicken Nuggets:
By Gimme Some Oven – with a few changes.
(Skipped the dairy and regular flour)
> Almond Meal – Red Mill Brand (I think?)
> Regular Paprika
> Salt n Peppa’
> Garlic Powder
> 2 Eggs (Scramble, dip the chicken pieces in before dipping in the dry coating)
(No ketchup for me! Check your labels on the stuff below)
> 1 Can Tomato Paste
> 1/2 Can Tomato Sauce
> Garlic Powder
> Heat up and mix together
> Green Beans
Day number one, complete!
