Week Four

So, with family here, weeks two and three were tough. I'm grateful to my parents for supporting us as we eat this new diet and helping us keep on track. I'm looking forward to Week Four. I've lost 7 1/2 pounds so far (may have to adjust that goal) and I'm enjoying how I look and feel after working out. I've also joined a women's Bible study during the kids AWANA club. We're looking at Elizabeth George's "Loving God With All Your Mind." It's helping to round out this fresh start and I'm grateful for the continuing renewal of my mind. My prayer for you all is that you, too, will meet God's fresh mercies every morning!

Here's what this week's menu looks like. (By the way, anyone try any of the last post's recipes?)

  1. Hey Sarah! Way to go on sticking to your plan! We use smoothies a LOT and I have been amazed at how my boys gobble them up and how much they've kept my energy up during pregnancy. Since you asked, this is one of the favorites:
    2 c water (you can also use almond milk)
    frozen mango or raspberries (use to sweeten, depending on how much fruit you are adding in to your plan)
    2 carrots
    big handful of kale or spinach
    whey protein powder
    tablespoon of chia seeds

    Blend it all together - it's such a great energy boost!!

  2. Amy, I just saw your post today. Thanks for replying! That sounds good. We haven't really done carrots yet; we may have to give that a try! Hope you all are doing well. :)
