Ending day 3 DSD

I missed blogging yesterday. We had terrible things going on at home with broken pipes and moldy walls and such. Thankfully no big damage and we caught it quick and able to get it all taken care off.

Day 2 was great stuck with it. Today has been a pit slower. I feel like I'm dragging. I know after doing this a few times that day 2-5 is the bad days. So, also through it. I'm sure I'll start to feel better tomorrow! :)

No cheats, no hick ups or anything! It's been good so far. I'm enjoying some green mint tea this evening!

Day 1 of my 2015 21DSD

Success!!!! Yes! 

No cheats not even the urge! My mind was on all my food not on anything else! I must say I am very proud of myself! I drank 80 oz of water and stuck to my meals and snacks!! Woo hoo!

No headaches today, no real sugar cravings. I had a pretty awesome day! 

I had a wonderful dinner of spaghetti made with spaghetti squash. I do think I will be taking some for lunch tomorrow! As long as I stay on this track all will be great!!

Starting off 2015 with a 21DSD

Tomorrow is the day!!! I'm going to start a 21 day sugar detox! I'm ready! I've let my Paleo slide style slide just enough that I'm ready to take control back. 

Today I have prepped, made soups, pulled meat out of the freezer and chopped veggies. I'm ready to conquer the 21 days, 1 week at a time, 1 day at a time, 1 meal at a time. 

This is the year that I'm going to finally hit my goal weight and goal size. I have clothes in my closet I have bought over the last couple of years that I have just been waiting to get into. So, now is the time.

I'm hoping that during this journey I will blog and post pictures showing my journey and how stressful and/or successful my 21 day journey is going to be! I have daily emails from the 21DSD site for motivation, tips, tricks and suggestions if I need them. Blogs and wise words from others that have gone through their journey on the 21 days! I have done this a handful of times before with success but have never blogged about it! 

Here's to a successful 21 days!!
Till next time...

Pineapple chicken

I've been making this for a couple of years now and can't believe I haven't posted it! Would never have known I haven't shared it until someone asked me today for the recipe and I said 'oh it's on my Facebook page or my blog' guess what!?!? Well, it is now!

As you may all know by know, my recipes make a lot of servings because I'm always feeding 6-8 people and need left overs for lunch. So if you are only making for 2-4 either half the recipe of prepare to freeze it for later! :)

Pineapple -crockpot- chicken
3 (ish) pounds of boneless skinless chicken
1 pineapple slices to bite sizes
1/2 c honey
1-2 bell pepper
4 cloves garlic
Salt to taste

I slice, dice and measure everything up and then toss it all in the crockpot.
Set I to low and let it go for about 6-8 hours.
Hubby loves this over a bed of rice and I love it over quinoa! :)

If I feel a little spunky I will grate or dice finely a jalapeƱo and toss it in there too, just to give it a little kick! Super yummy and the kids love it! :)

Till next time!
