Trim Healthy Mama Week One

This week I received my copy of Trim Healthy Mama in the mail.  Amazon was rather slow getting it to me but it did come a day sooner than I expected.  I thought I would blog about my progress as I go.

Friday, Day 1 (February 15) I've only had the book for 2 days so I'm sort of winging it and trying to learn as I go. I made this an S day so I didn't have to worry about how much time between meals.

Breakfast S- Serene's Steamed Omega Sensations (so delicious)
Lunch S- Creamy Vegetable Soup with a bit of cheese
Snack S- Skinny Chocolate (I think I could get in trouble with this.  It has a bit of an aftertaste but it doesn't bother me at all.  This is SO good.)
Supper S- Fooled Ya Pizza (a cauliflower crust pizza-yum!)
Snack-  S-a piece of Skinny Chocolate and Zucchini Fritter (OK but not my fave)

Saturday -Day 2

Breakfast E-Steel Cut Oats with blueberries and 1 tsp. Truvia
Lunch E- Trim Healthy Pancakes with 0% Greek yogurt and Polaner All Fruit (Delish!)
Snack E-Crispy Roasted Garbanzos. (Yum)
Supper- E-All Day Lentil Soup (another delicious meal)
Snack-E-broiled grapefruit (surprisingly delicious)

I was so hungry when I went to bed that I felt sick.  I ended up getting up and having a Joseph's pita with a wedge of Light Laughing Cow cheese....which tasted delicious!  I highly recommend it as a snack for anyone.  It was recommended that I do a few S days in a row (this was in the book and someone gave me this advice on the Facebook group.)

Sunday-Day 3

Breakfast S- Serene's Steamed Omega Sensations
Lunch FP- Konjac noodles (also ate a piece of Skinny Chocolate while waiting for that to cook)
Snack S- 1/2 serving Lindt 85% dark chocolate
Supper- tuna in a Joseph's pocket with celery sticks

Came home from church SO hungry. We got home after 8pm.

Snack- S Joseph's crackers, cucumber and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar and EVOO
1 Easy Peasy Cinnamon Muffin and the other 1/2 serving of dark chocolate.

Again I was very hungry late at night (should have gone to bed earlier I think) so I grabbed another muffin.

Monday- Day 4

Breakfast- S-2 Easy Peasy Cinnamon muffins with a little butter
Snack- 1/2 cup Greek 0% yogurt with some blueberries, 5 almonds and Truvia
Lunch- cucumber and tomato salad with EVOO/balsamic/salt and pepper and chicken salad in 1/2 Joseph's pocket.  I put a light Laughing Cow cheese in the other half. (One square of dark chocolate.)
Supper- Hearty Red Soup (this is a ground beef, cabbage soup) YUM! and golden flat bread
Snack-small amount of skinny chocolate right after supper and a little more in the evening

Tuesday- Day 5 (back down to my lowest weight which I haven't seen since early Jan. YAY!)

Breakfast- 3/4 cup Greek yogurt with blueberries a half handful of slivered almonds and Truvia and one Easy Peasy Cinnamon muffin
Lunch- Hearty Red Soup and a piece of Golden Flat Bread (and a small piece of skinny chocolate)
Supper- Salad with dressing, parmesan cheese, some walnuts and almonds and a piece of chicken; also ate some kale chips -ended the meal with a piece of skinny chocolate
Snack-skinny chocolate and a cake in a mug

I was hungry before bed so I ate an Easy Peasy Cinnamon Muffin

Wednesday- Day 6

Breakfast- Blueberry Cottage Porridge (edible but not my favorite...but I'm not really a cottage cheese fan)
Late Morning Snack- 3 boiled eggs, baby bel cheese, 1 measured serving of almonds
Late Lunch- All Day Lentil Soup
Snack- Choco Pudding
Late Evening Meal- Hearty Red Soup (I love this soup) and I had some skinny chocolate and a little more pudding

Thursday- Day 7

Breakfast- Cookie Bowl Oatmeal
Lunch- Hearty Red Soup and a piece of Golden Flat Bread
Snack- Choco pudding (small bowl) and a few nuts
Supper- Caesar salad with grilled chicken
Snack- Cake in a mug and small piece of dark chocolate

So here I am at the end of my first week and I've learned SO much.  I LOVE this book and almost every recipe has been delicious.  I haven't lost any new weight yet, but I feel like this plan is very freeing.  I hope to blog more on this in the very near future.

I don't see much meat-are you sure they don't agree with vegetarian?

Karen said...

They address it in the book, Sam. I am not in the habit of buying a lot of meat (and it is expensive. Also, my husband doesn't like meat that much. I had chicken, beef and salmon this week. I guess you could probably adapt it to vegetarian but that would not be their recommendation.
