21 Day Fix (containers), Uncategorized

Day 8 [21 Day Fix]

I’m happy tonight. Today was a really great day. I’m starting to not put so much emphasis on food.

Day 2 I would’ve died for a donut. Or a sub. Or a slice of pizza. Or all three. Together. 🍩🥪🍕

Day 6 I would’ve died for my boyfriend’s mom’s Apple cake (it’s OUT OF THIS WORLD.. and I still want it.. bad example).

I would’ve died for some buttery popcorn at the movies the other night.

But tonight- I’m just happy, satisfied and proud. I’ll tell you why:


I woke up this morning to my amazing boyfriend, Matt asking if he could take me out for a coffee date to celebrate one week of this madness. I of course accepted, so I grabbed a quick banana and we went to a cute little coffee shop. I had my usual Americano and started my day with a smile. 😊

When we got home, I only had a little less than 2 hours to get some meal prepping (that I’ve been putting off for a couple nights) done. So, I baked up 3lbs of organic chicken with a mixture of spices.

I used some of that chicken for fajita bowls.

I put some in the fridge for salads for the week, and then I made some lunch with the remainder. Can you take a guess what I made?!?

Don-don-aaaaaahhhh!

Buffalo chicken, duh. 😉 on a mixed greens!

Then we went on our merry way to our regular Tuesday night gig.


Before I decided to do this challenge and blog, Matt and I would typically enjoy a glass or two of Cabernet while entertaining hotel diners. I haven’t done this since before Christmas, actually (WAY too much drinking during the holidays). So, tonight I decided I’d use my “treat” yellow containers on some wine.

I had a glass and a half and loved every sip 😇

Now, I KNOW I’m not the only one who becomes ravenous and ready to eat anything after having some wine.

This is why I had a proud moment tonight and am going to bed feeling accomplished (baby steps, yeah?).

I came home super hungry after only having that salad and a little banana all day.

I could’ve made anything. I could’ve eaten cheese while I was cooking (please tell me I’m not the only one who does that).

But I DIDN’T!

Having all my carbs gone for the day – lookin at you, vino – I knew I had to make something light, filling and carb free.

I whipped out my vegetable spiralizer that I’ve had for years and was still in the packaging.

Took a zucchini and made it into noodles!

After looking around at what I had in my cupboards and fridge, I threw some stuff together and came up with something that very well may become a staple. It wasn’t hard to make and it was a very inexpensive meal.

Here’s what I did… so you can make it too!

****

Zucchini noodles w/ garlic and no sugar added tomato sauce and 2 chicken sausage links.

⁃ 1 good sized zucchini, spiraled and patted dry with paper towel

⁃ 1 8oz can tomato sauce (Aldi)

⁃ 2 mild Italian chicken sausages (Aldi)

Cook the chicken sausage in 2 tsp olive oil. Set aside. Use remaining oil + 1 more tsp and sauté one clove of garlic in.

Add zucchini noodles in pan and cook about 3 minutes. Add tomato sauce with any spices you want (I added crushed red pepper, onion powder, salt, pepper and oregano). Finally, add cut up chicken sausages and let bubble.

Try this. I promise you’ll love it, too.

21 Day Fix: 2 ❤️ 2 💚 0.5 💙


This is what it’s all about. Breaking bad habits and making healthy choices. If I take anything away from these 21 day, that’ll be it!

Now, time for bed. Haha I do not miss that about 🍷🍷 – that shit makes me tiiired!

Good night and thanks, as always, for reading & supporting. 😊♥️
