It’s time for an update.
I taught I would write about how the weeks one and two went.
Firstly it is -3,6 kg-s.
We were moving 5 times a week! And First week was 100% within the menu plan and the second one 90%.
The first week was quite hard, and we found ourselves craving for a lot of things. The funny thing was that we really wanted cake. Also we missed the Lasagna Fridays. Also we found ourselves hungry quite often.
Good thing is that if you feel hungry than you have a lot of snacks to choose from. From sweet to savory. Our definitive favorite snack is Halo Top ice cream. It just kills the sweetness craving. Also really good is the cheese plate. And a bowl of popcorn to share on a Friday night to a good movie.
Mine and my husbands breakfast wishes differ. He is more of a mushroom omlette, granola, smoothie type. Where I just like to have different things like porridges, fish and salads. There are just so many good endless things to choose from. What we both really enjoyed was the Breakfast Burger.
Generally cooking is really easy. I am used to cooking different meals anyway and I do prep the things ahead, so it makes it even easier. I like to choose quick cookable lunches that take about 20 minutes. Easy ones are like fried rice, mozzarella chicken and feta chicken. Salads are easily prepared the day before and everything can be cut the day before. You just throw meat in oven and it cooks itself.
With dinners I usually take a bit longer, because I don’t prep them. We really like the jacket potato, feta chicken and also the chicken schnitzel.
On week two we did cheat a bit and got some cake to share and made a tea party. This did not have any affect because we had a 8km walk before.
In generally we have been going for long walks about five times a week. I have been averaging about 11000 steps a week. The first week was actually pretty tough. On the second week it got easier and we started to put in more km-s. We actually got up before the sunrise and went for a long walk and got the 10 000 steps in before breakfast.
After the first week the cravings got less and general feeling got better. The craving for snacks also nearly went away.
All in all the first two weeks were a success.
