Weekly CheckIn- 9/29

Shrinkvivor Challenge at the Sisterhood!

I had a good week last week. I had NO Fast Food! Although I did have the urge to order a pizza, but I refrained and made one instead. Other than that I ate well. Saturday I just felt like crap and didn't feel like doing anything. I still pushed myself to get through it and did a workout. For the most part I stayed away from dairy products last week, except for a bit of creamer in my coffee one day. Then Saturday I had some cottage cheese and after that is when I felt like crap. My stomach hurt and I just didn't feel all that great. When I was a kid I was allergic to dairy and tons of other foods. I though that I had out grown the allergy to dairy, but with what happened Saturday, I don't think that I have. So, I am going to try and stay away from dairy products. I have been drinking almond milk and it's great! NO SOY! SOY IS BAD!!!!

I was using Jillian Michaels Protein Powder and it was just making me feel so bloated, so I stopped using that a few weeks ago. It also contains milk and soy. I did get some rice protein powder a few days ago that does not contain milk or soy, but I have yet to try it. I also got some chia seeds and they are great! I know most of you are thinking what the heck, isn't that what you put on your chia pet? Well, no it isn't they are very small little seeds that almost look like Poppy seeds. Your next question would be so what's so good about them? They have 4 grams of Fiber in 1 tablespoon!! Isn't that just amazing!! I have been adding them to my cereal and other things. I was a little surprised when I first tried them, because once they become wet from your saliva they almost turn into like a tapioca like texture in your mouth. They are great though for getting in your fiber!

For the Shrinkvivor Challenge I have had NO DRIVE THRU FOOD!!

You are so awesome!!! Congrats on a great loss this week :) You're whole week looks like it was outstanding, and you really nailed the challenges. Way to go!!!

I've never heard of Chia, but now you have me interested. Must look for it next time I'm at Whole Foods. I also heart almond milk. It's really good mixed with rolled oats and a pinch of cinnamon and then refrigerated overnight - cold oats. Toss some fruit in and you've got an awesome breakfast!
