Day 7 Fed Up Challenge

Day 7 Fed Up Challenge has gone and went. It was Sunday and a perfect day for a round of golf. Sunny and low 70s. Finally!

It’s the first time I’ve been out golfing since last summer (which feels like forever ago!). The fiancé bought me my own clubs for my birthday, which was awesome! In previous years I’ve borrowed my mom’s clubs, which was always a hassle because I would have to get over to that side of town and pick them up. Which forced me to plan ahead. Which I’m not very good at. :)

Upon waking yesterday morning, the fiancé and I were watching Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown CNN series. He was in Mexico, and the food looked amazing! Although it was breakfast time, I was craving Mexican food. So I fixed myself up some chips and Amy’s Black Bean and Corn salsa.

Although I prefer homemade salsa, I don’t discriminate against a good canned salsa. Especially if it’s organic. This is the first time I’ve tried Amy’s Salsa. Frontera Salsa is probably my favorite, but this stuff is still pretty darn good.

OK so what did I eat all darn day? Read on my friends, read on…

Breakfast (9:00 a.m.): Well you already know this one, but it was more like a snack before breakfast. If that’s even a thing. Chips and Salsa, breakfast of champions. :)

Lunch (11:30 a.m.): Lunch was more like breakfast, as I made a smoothie with organic plain yogurt, organic peanut butter, chia seeds, cocoa nibs, and frozen mixed fruit (banana, mango, pineapple, strawberry) from Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s is my favorite for packaged healthy snacks. Not to mention they are super cheap! I made this smoothie and then drank it as we headed to the fiancé’s parent’s house.

Snack (1:30 p.m.): Bag of Lay’s Original chips. Mini bag, not big bag. I don’t like chips that much. OK, maybe I do. But I wouldn’t do that. Or maybe I would. :) Regardless, this was the healthiest non-sugar snack I could find at the clubhouse before tee off. Oh and a Bloody Mary. Does that have sugar in it? I hope not!

Snack (4:00 p.m.): Another Bloody Mary (no judging people!), and a handful of peanuts. Oh and a few carrots that were in my purse. I mean in a baggie in my purse. Otherwise that would just be weird.

Dinner (7:00 p.m.): After golfing we headed to Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter in Stillwater. A cute little German restaurant with all the traditional German food. Now although I’m part German, I really am not the biggest German food fan. Now that’s not to say I won’t enjoy it, but I never ever crave it, nor would I care if I ever ate German food again. I’ve been to this place before and it’s a good solid restaurant, with good solid food. I ordered roast beef with dark gravy, potato dumplings, and red cabbage. I also had some of the fiancé’s Schnitzel, with mushroom sauce. Mmm. 

Well, that was it. We ate out (again) so it’s hard to say if I consumed any sugar, but I have been trying to order things that would contain at least less sugar.

Biggest challenge?

Wanting dessert ALL.THE.TIME. I made it all day without too strong of sugar cravings, but once we got to the restaurant and the waitress came by with the tray of desserts, I about freaked. I mean like I’m-going-to-run-over-there-and-stuff-a-piece-of-chocolate-cake-in-my-mouth kind of freak. Will these cravings ever go away? Maybe if I wait it out long enough I’ll stop craving sugar, but I don’t think that’s likely. Especially because there is a most delicious thing in this world that exists. Its name is chocolate. :)

Tip of the Day

Find a support partner. When you are making a big dietary change (or fitness change, or lifestyle change, etc.) it helps to have someone on your side who will encourage you when you are ready to give up. For me, it’s my fiancé. He is not only a) the love of my life and b) my best friend, he is also c) my partner in every sense of the word. Tonight I was dying for some pizza and about to give in, when he was like “you’re so close, don’t give up now”. That my friends, is when you know you have a keeper. :)

Welp folks, that’s all I’ve got for today. I have been getting progressively worse at taking pictures the last few days so tomorrow’s post may be more visually boring than today’s! Sometimes you’re so caught up in the moment of life, that you forget to capture it. Which is not a bad problem to have. :)
