Friday Morning Weigh In

Weight this morning: 203. That's down 3 pounds since Monday....nice!

I'm still not feeling 100% since my bout with a nasty stomach bug so my food is still sketchy. My calories for yesterday were low as I was hesitant to eat while at work since my insides still feel pretty unsettled. 

In the morning I had a cup of Bulletproof turmeric/ginger tea. It was yummy and soothing. I was so pleasantly surprised by how really yummy this is. And with the high fat low carb content it's totally satisfying.  I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis. 

2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1TBS unsalted grass fed butter 
1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
1 TBS grated fresh ginger
Dash of stevia

Heat the almond milk to almost boiling. Dump everything in the blender and blend until frothy. 
Pour into your favorite polka dot cup and enjoy.

When I got home I wasn't feeling much like cooking so after taking this little guy for a walk...

....I scrounged around in the fridge and found a piece of avocado, some cheese, and a baked turkey wing. I had the part of the wing that doesn't resemble a drumstick. It was simple and satisfying. For my treat I had some peanut butter mixed with heavy cream.
