String Project Week 19 Goal
Another SUPER late update! No excuses this time; I’m just plain lazy sometimes lol.
The String Project
Week 18 Recap:
Week 18 goal (7/07 - 7/13), represented by my bright pink string:
- No cereal
Like I’ve demonstrated in my last update, it was very hard to give up one of my most favorite food/snacks… but I DID IT! When I was able to eat cereal again, I definitely watched my portion control. I decided to add more fibrous whole-grain cereal to my bowl and limited the sweetened ones. I also see cereal more of a “treat” rather than a “snack” now, so I don’t eat it as often as I used to. Another way to make sure I don’t overeat on cereal is to walk straight to the sink and wash my dishes when I’m done. So far, so good. Let’s hope I don’t fall back on my old habit :P
For week 19 goal (7/14 - 7/20), represented by my dark purple string, I will:
-Drink 2 smoothies a day
It’s a great way to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my diet, so I thought, WHY NOT? I love my homemade smoothies! They’re refreshing and delicious, and best of all, I know exactly what ingredients are in them. My favorite combination is probably banana + strawberries (with my strawberry protein powder) or banana + mangoes. I like to freeze the fruits beforehand and add some ice cubes to make the consistency of the smoothie very thick. It’s just like fruity soft serve ice cream to me, seriously. It’s a guiltless treat ;D I only have one more day of this challenge, but I definitely see myself drinking more smoothies in the future - &I’m slowly adding veggies in!
