I'm so close to the end I can taste it! You know what it tastes like?
Seriously my cravings these last few days are way worse than they've been all month. It might have something to do with the fact that I'm really anticipating going to see Ender's Game on November 1st and I know I'm going to load up on buttery popcorn and red vines!
Things I've done to beat back the cravings:
- Snacking on almonds and raisins
- Drinking iced coffee and almond milk (I keep a pot of coffee in the fridge, every morning I pour myself a glass, then add ice and almond milk. Yum!)
- Drinking a LOT of water. I constantly have a water bottle with me. Of course I'm constantly running to the bathroom to pee as well, but, what're you gonna do?..
My favorite dinner this week? Taco salad!
Taco salad is a big favorite in my house. I ate a lot of it growing up. Of course some of the main ingredients such as tortilla chips and kidney beans are out, but the most important things are still in! Lettuce, ground beef, olives, ranch dressing..
Yes! Ranch dressing! For some of the best paleo ranch I've found, try this recipe here at CupcakesOMG. This stuff has saved my life. I love this on my salad! Try it with red lettuce, chopped chicken, and apple. Mmm! I haven't been able to find fresh dill for the life of me, so try dried parsley instead, it's worked pretty good for me!
Weight loss update:
I've reached my first short term goal! Twelve pounds down and I'm sittin pretty at 179.5! Woohoo!
Looking forward to finishing this up and posting all my results. I need to look for a good before picture too...
