The days are going fast. We’ve made it past the 2 week mark but to be honest it still isn’t easy. I’m not surrounded by sugar at home and yet my body still looks for it. You’d think it would be ‘out of mind out of sight’ but it’s so not the case for me!
They say it takes 21 days to break a habit but taking it that much further and extending it to a month safeguards your habit breaking and shows you that you can do it.
I really truly realise now how tough sugar is to break free from and how hard it must be for people to stop but i know it is possible because WE are doing it right now. It’s not easy and like with any habit you try to kick, you’ll struggle at first (or maybe for 16 days) and sometimes substitutes don’t always satisfy but you’ll get there! It IS possible.
Now here is a savoury snack, side or appetiser that my family love. It’s so simple and quick to prepare with easy to acquire ingredients and most of all – it’s delicious!
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
10 strips of Bacon
10 pieces of Asparagus (stalks cut off)
Salt and Pepper to taste
- Wrap a piece of bacon around a piece of asparagus diagonally so it wraps evenly from top to bottom.
- Repeat until all slices are prepared.
- Grill on the stovetop until bacon is cooked through.
- Voila! So simple, and such a great appetiser, snack or as a side to a meal.
WHAT I ATE:
Meal 1: Protein Smoothie
Snack: Prosciutto and Truffle Cheese on Gluten Free Crackers
Meal 2: Chicken and Vegetable Curry
Snack: Nut and Seed Mix
Meal 3: Fish Stir Fry and Cabbage Salad
Total Cups of Water: 10
DID YOU WORKOUT?: YES!
I did a full body circuit workout that targeted all areas with exercises such as: weighted squats, deadlifts, dumbbell rows, split squats, cable cross overs, sandbag plank drag, mountain-climbers-to-comando-roll-to-burpees, bicep-curls-to-shoulder-press, 500m row, etc. It was great! it lasted about 2 hours with breaks in-between.
