Hello, everyone! First things first, I would like to greet everyone a Happy Thanksgiving Day! I know by the time I published this, the Thanksgiving was already over. But I just wanted to share the incredible and fulfilling experience I had today. I got to say, this was one of the most memorable Thanksgiving Dinner I ever had, and a healthy one too!
Hi everyone! I know, I know. I am already outdated with my journal entries. I never expected that life will really get in my way to finish my journal everyday. Well anyway, I will make sure to catch up my journals (I already have several drafts here).
So let us see, just like in Phase 2, I will just have to summarize my entry for Phase 3. After my horrible and disgusting experience with phase 2, I finally entered Phase 3. For my breakfast I decided to have something powerful and wonderful.
I want to make up from Phase 2 so I decided to eat Beef Tagine with Butternut Squash. And just as expected, the food was so delicious! Aside from that, my caffeine withdrawal finally stopped and I am just so, so happy that I am not suffering from intense headache anymore (and I honestly think I will never drink coffee again. The pain was not worth it! I haven’t realized my addiction to it until now).
For the first time I felt like my soul was being lifted up from the dread I experienced in Phase 2! I also did Yoga for an hour and it’s definitely refreshing and relaxing! I’ve never been felt energized! For my morning and afternoon snack, I had the delicious and refreshing Blueberry Zucchini Smoothie! As you can see, I LOVE almond butter and I made sure to have lots and lots of it on my smoothie!
For my lunch I have another mouth-watering recipe the fast metabolism diet community recently posted.Baked Salmon Meatballs with Creamy Avocado. The moment I saw this posted on Facebook page, I was hooked! The recipe looks very yummy so I tried cooking it right away! And as expected, the recipe was very delicious! I love the creamy goodness of Avocado and coconut sour cream! It’s a perfect dip for the Salmon meatballs! I freaking love it! I swear this phase is heavenly!
And since I started Phase 3 on Friday and I don’t have much to do (since it’s weekend), I just read my favorite book while taking occasional sip with water. Aside from writing, I also love reading. So I didn’t realize it’s dinner time already. And since I became lazy and I couldn’t get my hands off the awesome book, I just heated my leftover from the Salmon meatballs in the oven.
For Saturday and Sunday, my routine was pretty much the same. Nothing much changed. As you see, I am an introvert person and I prefer to be in my silent sanctuary. I rarely go out, though I spend time with my friends everyday through chatting. I also tried more delicious phase 3 recipes and they’re just as heavenly as everyone claimed! I had two massage this weekend and I finished the series up to City of Glass.
Phase 3 is an awesome and powerful phase! I am loving Phase 3! I love all the mouthwatering recipes as well as the healthy fats! I love indulging myself with the tender bits of avocado, almond milk, almond butter, chia and flax seeds! I dare say this is my most favorite phase! And I seriously hope that throughout the 28 day diet program we only need to do phase 3. I am dreading another round of Phase 2!
How about you? Do you also love Phase 3? I sure did!
