I haven’t forgotten to post, just been super busy. But crazy enough I’m on week four and have lost a total of 9lbs and 13 inches! 💥 I’m pretty excited. Now if I can add exercises into my routine again, just think how much I could lose this month? I was hoping to lose up to 10lbs per month. I almost made that last month, but it’s ok, just one pound to go. Maybe I’ll lose 11 pounds this month. We’ll see.
Still no sugar or sweeteners which is awesome! One month under my belt and two more to go. I do feel a lot more energetic and my memory is so much better than it was. It’s amazing what artificial sweeteners do to your body, even just white sugar. Artificial sweeteners seem to trigger my migraines and sugar just makes me feel bloated and miserable all the time. Artificial sweeteners also make me have memory loss and I’m easier to forget things at the drop of a hat. So I’m thankful I’m doing this and after the 90 days I plan to stick to a no sugar diet, from now on. Only eating natural sweeteners like Swerve or Monk Fruit. But my white sugar days are forever over. I don’t plan to eat it again. I can always substitute anything I would like with the natural sweeteners.
I do crave things quite a bit, but I don’t give in. The one thing I crave the most is ice cream. I think about it almost daily. I have a whole board on Pinterest devoted to Keto food and it probably has 100 different recipes for ice cream. Peanut butter cup and coffee ice cream as well as strawberry cheesecake ice cream are probably going to go in my ice cream maker first. I can’t wait till July! It can’t come soon enough.
I found this pouch the other day at a vintage market in Hsv, AL. I couldn’t not get it. As much as I love ice cream. I could probably live off of it. Especially Gelato. So creamy and smooth. ❤️
Okay, enough about sugar.
I did make a very yummy simple meal the other night, I thought I might share with you.
Steak tips with Mushroom sauce.
Pan fry your steak tips at a low temperature, after they are done set aside.
Slice 1 whole small onion, in half then slice longwise and break or divided each slither and sauté in coconut oil or olive oil. Sauté until transparent. Chop up 2 cups mushrooms and sauté with onions until soft. Add 1 cup heavy whipping cream and seasonings to taste. Cook until bubbly for about 10min. Or until it gets thick like a gravy. Pour over your steak tips and serve with green beans or favorite side, (we had carrots and peas).
It was so yummy! I hope you enjoy!
Until next week,
