Real Food/No Booze Shenanigans

Day 1 = Dominated.

Yup, I'm a bad ass. Y'all already knew that though, huh. I have completed one whole day.
Dolphin Claps please.
Because this shit's amazeballs.

I did not cheat once! ONCE! I made it the whole day on water, salad, chicken, veggies and rice. And it was awesome.

Wanna know what I learned through this new fandangled real food thang????

I learned that balsamic vinegar is DEEEEEE-Lish on salads!
Ok, not the best pic, but you get the idea.

I just threw together some roasted seasoned chicken, with cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, and a little reduced fat feta cheese on top of some leaf lettuce, sprinkled a little balsam on it and..........Oh My Lord Almighty!!!! Good stuffs peeps, good stuffs indeed.

Then last night I had sauteed veggies with chicken and brown rice. I added a little low sodium soy sauce for some extra flavor too. Also, amazingly delicious.

And no beerzies.

I had a talk with our beer fridge last night and I expressed my wishes that there will be no more flashing me by opening the door and displaying all the yummy boozeliciousness that he contains. For 10 days. I also said that I know it's a sad time. But we will be strong and persevere.

So far today's right on track also.
Eggies for breakfast, yogurt, left over chicken/veggie stir-fry for lunch, and taco salads tonight with organic lean ground beef for dinner.

And waterwaterwaterwaterwater.
Yesterday I drank over 100 ounces of water. ONE FREAKING HUNDRED.
That just equaled lots of potty time. I might as well move my desk into the bathroom already. I'd probably get more work done.
Oh well, it's good for me! (not the endless peeing part, but the water drinking part, just in case you were cornfused)

And tomorrow is Jordan and I's first weigh in for “Looking Hot for our Hunky Husbands Challenge”!!!!!

I know I am!


  1. I've never tried that vinegar on I might. What's the flavor most like? A ranch, french, western?

    Congrats on Day one - and um yah - I already knew you were a badass.

  2. I love making glaze for my chicken using balsamic vinegar as well. You did great! I can't wait to hear if you notice a difference in how you are feeling.

  4. I'm gonna get me some Balsamic Vinegar! Yummy.

  5. I've never tried balsamic vinegar on my salad... what's the sodium look like? I guess I should try it. I keep hearing good things...

  6. Mmmm that salad looks delish. I also about pee'd laughing about the beer fridge talk and how he isn't to flash you. High five on kicking day 1s ass hon.

  7. Balsamic sounds good. You should try a squeeze of lemon juice and a dash of salt & pepper sometime. Surprisingly delish!

  8. Good for you,l Laura! I wish I could say I had as good a day as you did. I will aspire to have this good a day tomorrow.

  9. yummo! Way to go!! I love a salad too - boiled egg, avacado, sunflower seeds and craisins!!!

  10. Awesome! Keep it up! I love me some Balsamic... we have a specialty store nearby, and I have to restrain myself every time I drive by. Right now I have Blood Orange Balsamic!

  11. I love basalmic I could practically drink it. I should be around a little more often and will be glad to get back into what you are up to!
