Fitness: the no bread challenge

on

Okay, okay. I know. I’m spamming your feed. But I just had a great idea while cooking up some lunch before heading out for the evening.

I wanted to use my left over kale but didn’t have any chicken to go with. And I’m kind of tired of chicken this week. So, I opened my meat drawer and pulled out the last two hot dogs and chopped them up. I also tossed in the last bit of Ukranian sausage in my fridge.

As usual, I reached for the bag of bread and then stopped myself. I thought. What if my weight loss has really been because I’ve cut back on bread and pasta? It’s been three days since I had a piece of bread.

And so. I freaking love bread so much this is going to be a real challenge. I’m going to see how long I can go without eating bread. My breakfast is either a bowl of cereal or toast. But in an effort to lose pounds this month, I’m giving it a whirl.

How the challenge will work:

Only 1 piece of bread for the entire week. Sundays can be my cheat days – I’ll allow myself a flatbread pizza, a tortilla shell OR a sandwich. But not all three in one day.

Bread and heavy carbs are my weakness. I’m already three days in. I’m back to coffee drinking but skip it every other day. If I can skip out on coffee on alternate days, then I’m sure I can skip out on bread too.

I’ll monitor the scales and see how I’m doing. I’m already down 1 pounds (water weight) this week.

Fingers crossed.

For a left over meal, it looks tasty, don’t it?

    I’m also getting my oven range fixed on Monday. I’ll get back to cooking then. Makes it impossible to take great shots. My kitchen lighting is terrible.
