Wow!!! 222 days since I met my goal weight… time sure flies. I’m nearly half way through the 500 days of Consolidation (it is 5 days for every pound you lost to your goal weight, which for me was 155, so 100 pounds lost… that said, I actually lost an additional 11 pounds for a total of 111 pounds, but I’m not counting those in my Consolidation #)… clear as mud?
Since Thanksgiving I had gained 3.5 pounds. This brought me dangerously close to 150 pounds… On Friday I was 149.8. So I took action. I decided to do 4 Pure Protein days in a row this week. I started on Monday.
2 boiled eggs and 2 slices of sharp NY cheddar (yum!!!)
4 slices of deli roast beef and 4 slices of deli sliced turkey with 2 slices of muenster cheese
Pork Chop baked in the oven with onions
Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with cheddar and 3 slices of bacon (yes, i technically know this is not Dukan friendly, but it is low carb!) 😀
Lunch: OMG Crockpot Tuesday… recipe below
Dinner: Stuck at the birth center assisting a birth…. 7 olives and 6 squares of feta cheese… low carb, but NOT the dinner I was hoping for 😦
Snack: FF Greek Yogurt w/Splenda
Dukan Spicy Chicken
Serves: 8 (I feed the crew here at the Palms Birth House lunch on Tuesdays)
1 TBS coconut oil
4 pounds chicken thighs (boneless/skinless) You could use breasts, but thighs are WAY CHEAPER!!!
2 large onions, chopped (I like big chunks)
4 garlic cloves (crushed and chopped)
Grated zest of a lime
Juice of same lime
6 TBS apple cider vinegar
3 TBS water
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp crushed chilli flakes
2 TBS splenda
Dash of salt
I also added a TBS of my son-in-laws homemade Awesome Sauce (think home grown habenaros!)
Turn your crockpot to HIGH.
Heat a skillet on medium with coconut oil. Brown the chicken in the skillet, 3 minutes each side. Add to crockpot.
Sauté the onions for 2 minutes and then add the garlic and sauté two more minutes. Add to the crockpot.
In a small bowl mix the rest of the ingredients. Add to the crockpot.
Cook on high for 3 hours.
Eat and enjoy!
This lunch was FANTASTIC! The entire birth house smelled so yummy! It was very much a winter dinner. Let me know if you try it!
Congratulations on a great job!
Sounds like something I will try. Copied.
Sounds yum. You’ve done so well to get to your goal weight and keep it off!! See, dukan/low carb seems the way forward. Lifestyles work – diets dont!!
I couldn’t agree more… it’s worked for both of us 🙂
Well done Sandi… you are a model of exactly how to whip things back into shape before they become too much to handle. Many blessings to you and the family this holiday 🙂
Thanks, Anna… gotta keep on top of it… I never want to be fat again… EVER 🙂
Blessings to your family, as well 🙂
I said yesterday I was going back on Dukan , for sure. Then had carbs for New years snacks. Keith said , Tomorrow. So today, really doing Dukan, I had lettuce at lunch and just had to make chex mix, sweet and salty, and my stopped up nose felt the only good thing for dinner would be cheese enchiladas, with chili sauce.== REally tomorrow? I will . I am depending on you for my inspiration again! You do such a good job at it 😉
Just set your mind to it and do it! I think about how great I fell and that keeps me motivated xoxo
