Round 2

  1. The Sugar Addiction, and How I'm Fighting It, FINALLY

    Checking in with some interesting information...!

    The last month has been ROUGH with my eating habits. We went to Colorado on a ski trip with my closest girlfriends and I decided since I was on vacation, I would just eat whatever I wanted. That led to lots of indulgence in SUGAR, SUGAR, and MORE SUGAR. My meals were awesome and on-plan - no gluten, pretty much paleo, but my treats (and there were MANY) were ALL SUGAR!!!

    And I came back 3# above LDW, when we left I was ...
  2. Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mug

    Recipe adapted from this one:

    P4 & maintenance

    Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
    created by Melissa at No. 2 Pencil

    1 Tablespoon Butter
    1 packet powdered stevia
    1 tsp xylitol
    tiny splash of Vanilla Extract
    Small Pinch of Kosher Salt
    1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
    3 T almond flour
    2 Tablespoons of Semi Sweet ...
  3. Experimenting with Cocoa Crack

    I think I've finally managed to get the ingredient ratios adjusted to my liking.

    2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 T melted coconut oil
    2 T powdered xylitol (I put granulated xylitol in my Magic Bullet with the flat blade for 10-15 seconds)
    1/2 tsp vanilla

    I whisk it all together in a little glass bowl and then pour it into candy molds I got at the local craft store.

    I've been experimenting with add-ins. I'll place a tiny amount of finely ...
  4. Apple Mug Muffin

    Adapted from a recipe found here.

    1 T butter
    1 egg
    splash of vanilla
    1 T coconut flour
    1/2 T almond flour
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1 T xylitol if you don't want it very sweet, more if you prefer a sweeter taste (I'll likely add a touch more next time)
    1/2 diced apple

    Soften butter in large mug. Add egg and vanilla and stir. Add solid ingredients except apple and mix until well blended and the lumps are gone. Add apple and stir. ...
  5. P3, Week 1 summary

    So the first week of P3 went fairly well.

    LDW was 131.8 on 10/18/12
    VLCD1 w/no hhcg was 131.2
    VLCD2 w/no hhcg was 131.8

    P3 Day 1: 131.2
    P3 Day2: 131.2
    P3 Day 3: 132 (sick/bad allergies)
    P3 Day 4: 130.6 (what the what? I'll take it, though!)
    P3 Day 5: 130.6
    P3 Day 6: 132
    P3 Day 7: 133 - not 2# over LDW but I did a steak day anyway

    Week 2
    P3 Day 8: 131
    P3 Day 9: 132.4 (TOM is looming, ...
  6. Cinnamon Mug Cake

    I altered this recipe from one found here. The original recipe calls for sugar and flour. I thought I'd share my alterations that make it P3 friendly. My kids LOVE it, too! I didn't like the cinnamon crumb topping enough for the extra work it required, so I just mixed some of the ingredients into the batter to make a cinnamon cake.

    Ingredients needed:

    2 T butter (I use unsalted b/c that's what I have but I'm pretty sure salted wouldn't make much of a difference) ...

  7. Decided it was a PI

    So my trip was a blast, but there was indulgence in a few non P3 foods, and I paid for it with a 5.4# gain. I'm back on P2 for a little while longer - not sure exactly when I'm going to stop. I'm not yet back to my LDW from Round 2, but honestly I'm pretty happy with the weight I am. It would be nice to have some cushion, and I guess it might be nice to be even smaller, but I'm in an XS top and size 4 pants already and am (barely) at a normal BMI for my {very short} height.
  8. Strawberry Sorbet


    1 serving strawberries
    juice of 1 lemon (2T lemon juice)
    water as needed (I added about 5T)
    splash of vanilla

    Blend all to form liquid. Place in container and freeze.
  9. Stopping hhcg...

    Not sure if this will be a PI or just moving into P3. I'd like to lose another 8 pounds but I'm leaving town Tuesday evening for a girls' trip and will be in little control of my food. The good news is that most of our meals will be paleo, with just a few at restaurants - but I know how to eat at restaurants during P3 so I'm not too worried about that. I'll see how I maintained when I get back and may opt to do another couple of weeks with the hhcg.

    This past week was spent recovering ...
  10. P2 Chicken Tikka Masala

    100 g raw chicken, diced
    1/2 of a 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes w/no salt added (Organic Muir Glen is good)
    diced onions or sub minced onion
    minced garlic
    3/4 tsp Garam Masala blend

    Heat onions and garlic until soft
    Add tomatoes, garam masala, and chicken
