Day 1

I survived day one and I didn't want to punch anyone!! 
I planned my meals for breakfast and lunch, as well as my snacks. 
Heres the breakdown
Breakfast- Egg casserole, which is pretty much a crust less quiche 
Snack- Olives and almonds
Lunch- White chicken chili over lettece 
Snack- Carrots

I even had my coffee black....

Everything was good. I felt full. I was def craving an energy drink and a candybar but I didn't cheat. I was even nice enough to bring two cinnamon buns home for the fam. 

Dinner I didn't really have planned out and for a brief moment I thought it was going to be a disaster. I didn't start making dinner until 6 and what I started was going to take at LEAST an hour. 
I could not wait that long.
So instead I threw a bunch of veggies on a tray with olive oil and sea salt and roasted them in the oven, then cooked some chicken sausage and some chicken breats. I also made a side of rice for the family. 
It came out great and the kids and hubs inhaled it so it was a win. 

Today I work a 12 hour shift so it will be a real test. I'm bringing tons of snacks and hoping for the best! 


  1. 12 hours! Pack all the things! Ha....you're doing great mama!

  2. dinner looks delish!!! I have been doing a quick skillet saute of veggies and a protein for myself while I cook the goodstuff for the family too.
    Last night though I caught Kiddo eyeing my tuna and cabbage! haha.

    Keep it up!

  3. At one point I was working my full time job and a part time night job which led to 13 hour days. My coworkers used to laugh at me because I'd bring in a whole shopping bag full of snacks, meals, etc. for the day. Whatever works and good luck!

  4. You can do anything for two weeks! Awesome first day, I'm looking forward to reading your daily updates.

  5. that's my fave kind of dinner! Where you just throw some shit in the oven and pray it's edible.

  6. Are those roasted Brussels sprouts on your plate? 😎 Great job on your first day!

  7. Sometimes when you just throw something together, it's a win & it sounds like yours was. Good job, girl! Keep it up! :)
