Medifast: Day 4

Here are my meals for today:

1) Cinnamon Cereal
2) Cinnamon Pretzels
3) Eggs
4) Cinnamon Pretzels
5) Brownie
Lean) Wendy's Salad

Cinnamon Cereal: I don't have a lot of time to eat at home in the morning since I don't like waking up early :) So today I took the cereal and almond milk with me to work. I was really nervous about the cereal because I had tried this one dry and hated it. I had also tried the Triple Berry Cereal with cow's milk and I also hated it. My coach told me that letting the cereal soak in the almond milk helps it so I did that. The first few bites were weird but then it was find! Hurray! Something else I can eat!!

Eggs: I found a pin on Pinterest with tips about these eggs. Instead of cooking it in the microwave I cooked it on the stove, like normal eggs. Here's a tip: I let the egg powder soak for 30 minutes before I cooked them. Here's another tip: These cook WAY fast. Mine turned into an egg crepe! Next time I'll lower the heat so it'll be more like scrambled eggs. I also put 1TB of medium salsa on the eggs. I don't know if that blocked any weirdness but they tasted fine. Aside from looking like an egg crepe. I'm pretty shocked at how normal it was to eat those. I loved to make scrambled eggs with salsa and black beans. The Medifast eggs tasted just like that, minus the beans.

Today is the first time I'll be away from home for a long time. Tyson got off work early today so we drove up to Ogden so he can get his shot early; we're going camping with our ward tomorrow so we can't do it this weekend. My lean meal was supposed to be at 5:30pm but we were at my in-laws' house and they didn't have anything I could eat for my lean and green. Everyone else had Costco pizza. We started our way back to Provo and I finally got to eat at 7pm. I keep eating the pretzels because I don't have to cook them or eat them with milk. When I get the bars I won't be eating pretzels multiple times a day. Honest!

Yesterday was a hard day. My boys had chili for dinner and I was so tempted but didn't give in. I'd also like to mention that I have regular vanilla ice cream and chocolate Skinny Cow and caramel Skinny Cow bars in my freezer that I haven't been tempted to eat AT ALL :)

My coach told me to drink some Powerade Zero. I'm not a Gatorade or Powerade fan so I haven't tried that yet. But last night my hips and legs were sore so if it doesn't get better than I will have to.

Like I've mentioned before, my aunts have done or are doing Medifast too. They've got some really great tips and tricks which is nice. They said to take the Tomato Soup and turn it into a pita. I'll have to look up how to do that but it'd be cool since I've heard that this particular soup is gross. I guess the Chicken Noodle Soup can be used as chips. Weird. I'll have to try it out. I can't wait to get some bars. They have 

I still haven't tried my cauliflower as something else. I'm nervous about it. 

What I am missing most: BREAD. Seriously. I have a friend doing Weight Watchers who is the same. She always told me that bread was her biggest weakness. All I want is a warm roll with mashed potatoes and gravy. Mmm...

Good for you, Neesie! You're doing awesome! The bars are a total lifesaver. Try to cauliflower as rice. I fell in love with that and keep cauliflower on hand just for that. And occasionally for substitute mashed potatoes (with Lite Laughing Cow). Mmm! You're almost through the hardest part. Keep doing what you're doing!!

You're awesome! Keep it up! I'll send you a recipe for cauliflower bread. I made it for my in-laws and they really liked it. Also, cauliflower can be baked with a little olive oil and lemon juice and it's divine!
