Day 7 of the 21 DSD

Day 7 is death.

OK maybe I’m being a little over dramatic… let me regroup.

nope, day 7 is death ( this mood could have absolutely nothing to do with the 21 DSD and everything to do with the fact that I’ve worked a 84 hour work week)

I know I should feel happy that I am one week down and 2 weeks to go… but considering I am working my 8th 12 hour shift in a row, I just can’t get excited about anything. I have done this to myself.  I have set myself up for failure but I will not give up.

On the bright side I made another delicious recipe from The 21 DSD by Diane Sanfilippo.

Review: Absolutely delicious, my husband loved it, I loved it, and it was really good with the 21 DSD ketchup. I chopped up some onion and celery with the carrots and omitted the peas. I used ground turkey as the meat and used copious amounts of oregano, rosemary and parsley. I have tried to make cauliflower mash before and it has never turned out as beautiful as this.

Day 7 Meal Plan: 

Breakfast: Carrot Pumpkin Spice Muffin with Green Tea (Was running late for work, didn’t have much time to eat)

Lunch: Leftover Beef Stew (Finally the last of it! But I’m not sick of it at all)

Supper: Shepherd’s Pie (omnomnomnom)

Snacks: Apple Cinnamon Donut, Boiled Eggs, Coffee, Raw Almonds, Green Tip Banana with 1 TBSP Almond Butter

Made some roasted butternut squash hoping it would help give me more energy to get me through this shift.

Recipe: Peel one medium butternut squash, cut in half and remove seeds. Cut into cubes. Cover with 2 tbsp melted coconut oil, sea salt, pepper, rosemary and oregano. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and roast at 350 for 25 minutes.

Mood: Do I really need to repeat how miserable I am? This is e first day of real cravings… I want to stuff my face with chips and chocolate bars and bagels… But I just need to remind myself how shitty I would feel if I did that. The cramps, the headaches, the acne, the bloating…

14 days to go.
