Ahmahgahd. I am plateauing with my weight loss. I've lost 15 pounds in 4 weeks, and it's suddenly slowed down. Want to know why? Because I love sugar. I love honey. I love chocolate. I love fruit more than vegetables. I crave Coca-Cola all day long. And you know what? I don't have an amazing metabolism. So yeah, just sit there on your judge-y butt and think of all the kale and spinach I should be consuming instead of chocolate flavored nutbutter; how I should be drinking half my weight in ounces of water; how I need to stop participating in work potlucks. Because I'm thinking that, too.
|This is how I feel when my co-worker tells me he's 6'2'', 170 lbs and |
has never been to a gym and eats 7000 calories per day.
|This was my 'last meal' - a bacon, avocado and jack cheese burger |
made with New Mexico meat... yum.
I am hoping I can stick to this. I have a major caffeine addiction, I love to smother my food with cheese. I have a ton of food vices. From spending time with people outside of my circle, I have realized that I may be addicted to food. And not in an "oh, haha, I love food" way, but in a food-governs-my-day way. I want this 21 day detox to also be my detox from my food addict self always thinking about the next meal.
Without further adieu, here's my grocery list for the week (some of these groceries will bleed into next week):
1 lb. bag of baby carrots ($0.88 at Sprouts)
1 bunch of spinach ($0.88 at Sprouts)
3 bell peppers ($1.00 at Sprouts)
1 cucumber ($0.49 at Sprouts)
1 onion ($0.50 at Sprouts)
1 head of cauliflower ($0.88 per pound at Sprouts)
1 head of romaine lettuce ($0.88 at... you guessed it - Sprouts)
2 green apples (for when I need to have "sugar" - roughly $0.75)
1 pckg. pork loin chops (buy 1, get 2 free at Albertson's - probably about $7)
1 pckg. bacon ($3.50 at Albertson's)
1 pckg. chicken breasts ($2.50 at Albertson's)
2 sausage links ($2.00 at Albertson's)
For a grand total of $21.26! I have to get cat litter too.... dang these furry creatures! I leave you with a picture of me with a pissed off cat when I tried to do a cat beard. And no, he's not meowing - he's trying to bite me.
Wish me luck :)
