The Maker's Diet Challenge: Phase 1 - Week 2
Don't judge me.
I know what you're thinking... I'm such a sinner. We had Easter this past week and I had to celebrate! So I had me a carrot cupcake and a few lemon bites from Trader Joe's and I cleansed it down with my raw carrot juice.
It actually filled me up fast - three lemon bites were honestly enough, which shows me that my cravings are now under control, compared to before.... The old me probably would have eaten the whole lemon cake container with a second cupcake lol. Another confession, I had some Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate 72%. I'm a woman with needs, so stay in good faith with me here.
Don't worry, I made up for it with a dinner fast. Refer to the book.
So I did some more shopping... Take a looksie...
All organic and this time I included original organic yogurt (cow-milk) ...
My breakfast usually looked something like this:
- Over hard Omega-3 Eggs
- Cilantro seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic)
- Turkey Bacon (No preservatives)
- Double Roasted Salsa
Or like this ...
Lunch looked something like this...
And dinner went something like...
I've lost a lot of unnecessary weight and really slimmed down these past two weeks on this diet alone. Of course, I did some light 15 minute cardio at least three to five times per week with Shaun T's Hip Hop Abs or a 6lb medicine ball of 30 3-tier squats, abs, and 10 close-hand push-ups. I was able to rest for about 5-8 hours per night and I'd squeeze in a 15 minute power nap if I could.
I should also let you know that this practice includes meditation on short and powerful healing prayers referenced in "The Maker's Diet" in the morning and before bed. I can also say that if I felt any healing senses the most throughout this experience, it would be during these prayers.
Overall, I feel great!
I look better, my skins starting to glow (no more pale dead face), my abs are defining, I'm more energized, and I don't even remember feeling any joint pains in my knees this past week. So, yea - Phase 2 here I go...
See you next week! OX
