Food journey day 8 — Week 1 progress update

So, we are one week in to the food journey.  And, well, I have lost 8 pounds.  Seems crazy.  I really didn’t think that was possible unless you had a personal trainer and a personal chef.  But apparently if you stop eating processed crap and feed your sweet tooth with strawberries instead of candy, it is possible.  I am not fool enough to think that this pace of weight loss will continue, but it is a nice jump start towards my goals. 🙂

So, this morning, Madi and I went to the farmer’s market with my sister and Max.  We picked up some more kale (since I went through 3 bags of it last week), a bunch of zucchini, an onion, and some blueberries.  I wasn’t really planning on the blueberries, but after Madi was allowed a sample of them, we had to buy them for a snack. 🙂

I had intended to go to the gym after the farmer’s market, but Madi was having such a fun time with Max, it didn’t seem fair to drag her away to go to the gym.  So…I will have to find some time tomorrow for a run instead.

After Madi’s lunch, we went swimming.  I recently bought Madi a life jacket suit and this was her first time in the pool with it on.  Madi has always loved the water, but she clings to my neck for her life while we are swimming…laughing and clinging.  But that life jacket turned her in to a little fish.  Instantly.  She didn’t even want me to hold her hand.  She just wanted to float around and roll on her back and float.  It was seriously amazing.  We were in the pool for about 2 hours…so much fun!

Today’s food…

Breakfast — quinoa almond sundae

Lunch — none.  Oops…I took a nap instead.  I didn’t think I was hungry but I guess I was since I had a dream about eating a whole bunch of junk food.

Dinner — sweet potato with kale and white beans.  A peach.  Delicious.

And now, I think I will have some popcorn. 🙂
