I mentioned a few posts back that I was planning on doing a 5 day slim down to get bikini ready for 4th of July! At the time it had slipped my mind that I would be in Seattle for vacation the weekend before, so not the best time for dieting. Anyway, I’m back now and ready to get on track and going to do 3 days instead of the typical 5 or 7.
I have not purchased the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, but I have a good idea of what goes into the 5 and 7 day Slimdowns. Basically no dairy and no starches and lots of water, fruits and vegetables. Here’s what today looked like!
3 Day Slim Down
1 egg and 2 egg white veggie scramble (kale, red onion, tomato) topped with salsa + strawberries
Tall Soy Misto w/ 1 pump hazelnut syrup (from Starbucks)
4 steamed shrimp
Handful of grapes
Wendy’s Frosty Protein Shake (with a handful of spinach added in & chocolate almond milk instead of regular)
Frozen stir fry veggies from Trader Joe’s with steamed shrimp. Added low sodium soy sauce and siracha
I will probably have tea (with no sweetener) or something like that this evening. Today has been relatively easy since I woke up late (still on west coast time I guess). I knew going in to this slim down that no dairy was going to be the hardest part. I LOVE CHEESE and drink 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee every single morning. I prepared for this by planning to eat mostly seafood for lunches and dinners (makes it easier to not eat cheese) and I bought coconut milk coffee creamer that I had tried before and liked. I’ll try to do posts like these for the remainder of the slim down and I will let you know if I notice any changes in 3 days!
Are you doing anything special to prepare for 4th of July?
