I almost made it! Today’s the last day of my (mini) Trim Healthy Mama One Week Fuel Cycle. Today’s a Deep S day for the first two meals, ending with an E fueled dinner.
Breakfast 7:00 (woo, it’s the weekend- I slept until 6, late for me) I had a Trimmy (with butter in it!), chicken sausage and eggs scrambled in butter. Ahhhh, fat. I’ve missed you! I feel like kissing my KerryGold butter (it’s Irish – get it?).
Snack @ 11:15 Fried egg, Luscious Lemon Cake (a mug cake recipe from the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook). Instead of the usual cream cheese frosting, I mixed butter, Gentle Sweet and lemon juice for an icing. I LOVE this cake. If I’m craving one of those Iced Lemon Pound Cake slices from Starbucks, I have this instead and it nails it. (See more Starbucks Copycat Recipes for THM here.)
Snack @ 2:30 – a Chocolate Fat Stripping Frappa
Dinner @ 5:30 – this was supposed to be an E meal, but today got a little crazy. We’re busy packing up for a move right now, and my dryer is broke. We had to grocery shop, visit the coin laundry, run some errands…
I ended up eating a Hardee’s natural burger, no bun or cheese, with lettuce and tomato. It was delicious. Technically I messed up here, because the 7th day of the fuel cycle was supposed to end with carbs but instead ending up being a Deep S. Oh, well.
Tomorrow I’ll let you know the results of my fuel cycle week!
Note: I chose a one week fuel cycle instead of two weeks, because I only had a little bit to lose. And also because I just wanted to try it out, to see what a fuel cycle was like.
