I am halfway through this 90 day transformation. Some things have been going really well like putting my wellness and health as a top priority. I probably could have just done 12 week dedicated to wellness.
I am down to 187.2 which is about 3lbs away from original weight before the big gain last fall. It took a lot of work to reach this number. Interestingly, my inches are still higher. I am wondering if when I am experiencing the plateaus on weight but not inches, my body is readjusting the inches?
I had a painful, I mean super painful IBS flareup starting last Thursday. I had to miss work, slept for over 14 hours.
On Friday, I scheduled an appointment with my doctor but then had a realization. I have given up dairy, but there are two things that I really struggle with giving up, garlic and gluten. So now, I have officially given up both of those. It will take probably a month to notice the difference.
I am going to embrace my new dairy, gluten and garlic free life and try to be as positive as possible. If it helps with my IBS, it will be worth it. I tried out a couple of new recipes. If interested, I made buckwheat banana muffins and they were so good!
On Saturday, finally feeling better, I tried out a new restaurant, Whole Sol, in Denver and boy, it was expensive and just okay. I paid $25 for a small bowl and a juice, not worth it and definitely won’t be back.
My kitchen fail this week was crawfish coconut curry and butternut squash rice. The curry was just not great and the rice was mushy it just mixed with curry. I had to redeem myself with something. I made this delicious dinner on Sunday. I was really in the mood for some hashbrowns, so I roasted some shredded carrots and fried an egg with it. Best quick and easy dinner.
I reset some of my weight loss rewards and got a scale for the kitchen and an air fryer. I usually hate extra equipment in the kitchen but I am loving the air fryer. I cooked chicken in 20 minutes and it was so flavorful and crispy.
The scale has been really helpful. I have been underestimating my proteins and overestimating my sauces. Dinner was actually filling once I got the scale.
This week I am grateful the challenges life brings and everything I am learning from them.
