Super Shred Week 2

Hey ya’ll,

So I’m just having a vent session. So I’ve had success with the super shred diet…but for my lifestyle, it’s just not working. At work I NEVER eat on time because I just don’t have time. When I’m off I sleep in which throws the timing off and leaves me eating extremely too late. So now I’m frustrated. I’ve never been able to stick to a program (besides clean eating) for too long. And I have major vacation plans for this summer! I can’t go looking like this! Any suggestions??

Oh and Happy Earth Day!

Super Shred Week 1Results

Good morning ya’ll,

Ok so….today makes one week since I started the super shred diet. I weighed in this morning…and the results are: I lost 9 pounds! This is good and bad, hear me out. 9 lbs in 7 days is great considering I only worked out two days last week. But, Saturday and Sunday I did not eat AT ALL like I should have. It was a rough, emotional week. So all in all I’m satisfied with my results! 9 lbs is great..but all I can think about is how much I would have lost if I ate right over the weekend. Regardless, this is a victory!

It’s the day after Easter, so usually today every year I go get all the discounted candy. Here’s to breaking old habits : ) Happy Monday!

Easter Egg Cookies

In a stand mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, egg, and sugar. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture while beating on low speed. Divide the dough into four balls and knead the food coloring into each portion of dough until the color is even. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour. Unwrap each and press a small portion of each color dough together. Roll into a 12 inch rope and coil the rope into a circle. Pinch the dough together on one end to create an oval “egg” shape. Repeat for remaining dough. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until edges are just slightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Melt white chocolate chips in microwave according to package directions and drizzle over cooled cookies. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Cereal Easter Eggs

DIRECTIONS: 1. In a large pan melt butter using medium heat.

2. Add marshmallows and stir until melted.

3. Pour in the cereal and mix to incorporate.

4. Spray plastic eggs with cooking spray. I found it was easiest to use eggs that split vertically. You could just use 1 or 2 eggs for this process as the cereal does not take long to take the shape of the egg.

5. Spoon the cereal mixture into each half of the egg then close egg to form shape. Pop cereal out after about 10 seconds.

Super Shred Week 1 Day 3-5

Hey ya’ll!

The last few days have been crazy…but I’m still sticking to super shred. I didn’t have time to take pictures. I’m a nurse at a trauma hospital, so the time schedule has been rough to keep up with. All in all I’m still hanging on!

Now I’ve got to work on this exercise part! Because of work the only exercise I’ve really done is yard work. Time to get back in the gym!
