Checking in for Week 3 on the Hungry Girl Diet! Similar to week 2, I came off a weekend where my husband and I were out of town so didn’t have much time to do food prep and was still recovering from my cold and getting some energy back so I could jump back into my workout routine 100%.
Here’s a few of the meals I had:
Grilled Cheese Platter (this was SO dang good- so creamy and cheesy!)
This week was also a busy one with work projects/events…oh, and a team building event in the city that consisted of this:
It was all part of a Chicago Chocolate Tour with stops at Sprinkles Cupcakes, More Cupcakes, Argo Tea, Teuscher Chocolates of Switzerland and a Belgian bakery (can’t remember the name). Delicious, but not so great for the diet. YOLO right?!
After indulging a bit at this event (and at Easter), I noticed how sluggish my body was after consuming sweets and candies versus how full/fueled I felt after eating fruits & veggies. Incredible how I can notice a difference and am more tuned into it as a result of this diet!
Anyways, despite the crazy schedule and chocolate awesomeness this week, I was down 1.2 pounds, bringing my total to nearly 5 pounds lost since I started. I’ll take it! Definitely room to improve and stick to the plan a bit more, but trying my best as I go!
And now that I’m feeling better, I am back full swing with my workouts and half marathon training (which is two weeks out by the way- ahh!)
