Can you believe it's only been one week since I've been to my surgeon's office to get back on track? Me either! A lot has happened in this last week. My last soda was Tuesday on my way home from my surgeon's office. My last Click protein shake was the Friday before that. I'm down to 1 cup of coffee a day and I am eating more of my protein instead of drinking it. I've been doing really well at staying between 1100-1200 calories, getting my water in and getting my steps in. All of that in a week! Whew!
And in true Katie fashion, I've started my cooking back up and trying new recipes. Last week I tried 3 new things. Breakfast Burritos (without the tortilla), Ground Turkey and Broccoli Egg Bake and last but not least (and my new obsession), Overnight Oats. Have you guys tried these yet? They are amazing! You have to try them! They are low in calories and high in protein so it's a win win for a breakfast! And they keep me full for a very long time! What more could I want? Want to try them for yourself? Here's the link. There are so many different recipes out there too, check out Pinterest for even more recipes. I want to try so many of them, I may have to make an Overnight Oats board!
Here are the 3 I made last week:
|Chocolate with Strawberries and Bananas Overnight Oats|
|Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats|
|Strawberries and Bananas Overnight Oats|
All 3 of these were amazing! The peanut butter and jelly one was so rich and creamy, but it was too rich for me. The recipe calls for 2 Tbsp of peanut butter, but when I make it again, I will only be using one. Tonight I will be making Pumpkin Pie Protein Overnight Oats for breakfast tomorrow. I'm excited and a little nervous, this recipe calls for Greek yogurt and I haven't had one like that before. Fingers crossed that it turns out!
This afternoon is going to be filled with laundry, dishes, cooking for the next 3 days and filling Scentsy orders and getting them ready for delivery. I think I'll be busy enough to keep my mind entertained and not thinking about snacking, hopefully. But, if I'm going to get anything done, I should probably wrap this up and get to it! Have a great day everyone!!!
Until next time!
