Can you believe that January is almost done!  Thats right… It’s feeling a little surreal, when just the other day it was New Years and we were celebrating and making our new years resolutions.  If you have all been following me on twitter (which by the way is a must @thatssoyummy :-)) then you already know I am knee deep in my Ten in 2010 Healthy Challenge.

Week three has officially been completed and just like the other day I am proud to say that I have lost 11 pounds…… WOOHOOO!!!!!!

I have completely changed my lifestyle… I workout everyday for at least 1 hour and a half most two; I I eat a protein shake after each workout, I have been drinking water, water, and more water; and last but not least I have been eating salads, brown rice, and protein.

This is a great recipe I found for Brown Rice and Black Beans (see below)

or you can try a Mediterranean Salmon Pasta Bowl (just substitute and add whole wheat linguine)

The biggest thing for me was stopping the late night snacking, which I guess is pretty much everyday snacking… breads, juices, soda, COFFEE (which by the way I miss you so much!) and desserts.

Like these…

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Cups

or what about these Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars

and especially not these Caramel Chocolate Fudge Brownies.

So the fight continues, 3 weeks down 7 more to go….. Let’s pray that I stay strong for the remainder, which I think I just may! 🙂
