Day 20

Day 20 is here, which means that this 60 day Challenge is 1/3 of the way over!

I was REALLY craving Jimmy Johns last night when I got home from work.  A Club Lulu with turkey, bacon, mayo, lettuce, and oil&vinegar was really calling my name.  Jimmy Johns is perfect because the one two blocks from my house has a drive-thru (drive-thru = don't have to leave the car, no one in the restaurant is judging your greasy hair or days worth of mascara, and you can order more becuase it seems like you are taking some home for friends or family...yea, this has literally gone through my mind)
and who can resist their jalapeno chips?

Plus it was Friday night, and since I was staying in instead of going out for dinner or to the bar I totally deserved SOMETHING after my long day at work. Usually when cravings come on I give in to them immediately and I was almost out the door in my pink sweats and uggs when I remembered......the money I've been saving, my fridge STOCK FULL of fruits, veggies, and some yummy homemade chicken noodle soup, and all of the hard work that was just put in over the last 20 days.

It literally took all I had not to go, but in my mind it was a huge victory.  In the end I roasted up some broccoli and asparagus and had a Skinny Cow Mint Chip Ice Cream Sandwich for dessert.  They only have 140 Calories and are 4 Weight Watchers points ( I have no idea what that means according to points, but it's low, so I'm thinking its good?).

Sorry about my Jimmy Johns onto Breakfast and Lunch!

I finally used one of the beets that I bought last weekend.  I'm not going to lie, I almost threw them away because they are kind of scary looking and I've have heard that they add an "earthy taste."  But they were Amazing! That beauty on the left is the one I had for breakfast and I am so glad that I gave them a chance. 
This recipe was adapted from the Apple-Beet-Carrott Juice from the Reboot Program:
1 Apple
1 Large Beet
3 Large Carrots
2 Handfuls Spinach
Juice of 1 Lemon

It was seriously so good! They will definitely be on my weekly grocery list from now on.  It's not weigh in or measurement day, but I thought I'd share something with you guys.  For the heck of it I decided to get on my body fat/weight scale this morning and to my complete and utter shock it said that I have lost 10% body fat! Can you believe it? I almost can't.  I had to weigh myself 3 different times just to see that it wasn't lying. I have no idea where all that "fat" came from, but I'm glad it's gone :)
