This was my first week of the Activate cycle and I'm not handling it very well. Not that it's difficult--as a matter of fact it's really easy because some natural carbs are added. On this cycle I'm supposed to alternate days with the Accelerate cycle and the Activate cycle, but I keep conveniently forgetting that and eating at least one carb everyday. And yesterday my friends took me to dinner at TGI Friday's last night and I was pretty good with my entree, I had the Sante Fe salad, but I also ate a few of the entrees--that Florentine flatbread was unbelievable :-) And then I just totally destroyed it all by having a slice of cheese cake. But I stuck strictly to the diet all day yesterday until dinner so I hope that helped somewhat. But I'm not going to beat myself up about it, I'm just going to forget about it and move on. I just don't expect to have lost anything this week; and that really annoys me because it just feels like a wasted week. Hopefully I won't have gained anything.
In the meantime, dinner today was my own Tex-Mex chicken recipe and steamed broccoli. Delicious. There really isn't a recipe for this chicken I just spray my skillet with non-stick cooking spray and I seasoned and cooked my skinless/boneless chicken breasts. When they were almost done I topped them with a can of diced jalapeno tomatoes (I seasoned them first with Italian seasoning, basil, garlic) and then topped with a dab of shredded 2% cheddar cheese. I usually use fresh foods but canned works for me in a hurry.
