My husband and I began following Jorge Cruise's "Belly Fat Cure" plan in March of 2011. Needing to keep my motivation up, and also wanting an archive to read back over, I decided to join the legion of those people already tracking their progress.

Tangible Results

Okay, let's see what I can do with the two weeks left until the Family Reunion!

I've been pretty much good all week (Wednesday I had a soy latte not thinking that the soymilk was probably sweetened - 12g sugar, damn!), and last night when my husband wanted Burger King I made myself a fried egg sandwich even though it was late and I just wanted to give into the Call of the Carbs.

This morning I tried a new cereal I found at Shop Rite yesterday. They haven't had the F-Factor in a few months (don't know why, I kept buying out their stock..), so I've had to try some new things. There's the Optimum Slim I reviewed earlier this year, and I saw something labeled "Honey Nut" so I grabbed that. I love me some Honey Nut Cheerios and I wish there was something that tasted as good that was permissible. So these were "Gluten Free Cereal Honey Nut Rings" by "Glutino" - not too bad! I don't care for the smell of them but they taste pretty good. They remind me more of the peach-colored Apple Jacks than Honey Nut Cheerios but that's not a bad thing. They're 4/2 with only one gram of fiber, though, so I dunno if I'd go for them instead of the Optimum Slim. Plus the box was $4.99 instead of the $3.99 of the Slim.

I also picked up more of the Think Thin bars. I got a TON of the snack sized ones in Cookies & Cream and Chocolate Toffee Nut. I bought them off amazon untasted because we couldn't find them around, and I have to say I'm not a fan of them. Taste too much like protein bars to me. The Chocolate Dipped Nuts meal bar tastes like actual food so it's a winner, and I picked up a half dozen more on sale at Shop Rite yesterday (the only place we can find them other than Trader Joe's where they cost too much).

Cannot WAIT for our Whole Foods to open. I need some more options, please!

Lunch will be a turkey sandwich with sliced cheese, mayo and baby spinach on a Stop & Shop brand Sandwich thin (the name brands all have HFCS in theirs but the Stop & Shop don't, go figure!). Probably some string cheese.

Dinner tonight will probably be more nachos. I think I'll steam some spinach and include that, to get more nutrition out of it, other than fat and protein. ;) Otherwise it's just a 6g fiber meal.

Saturday is supposed to be pretty warm so I'm thinking it's time to make some ice cream! If my husband doesn't have a preference I'll make the Mocha Chip ice cream. If he does have a preference we'll probably end up with mint chip.

I'll weigh myself at my next chance, do all the measurements in MyFitnessPal progress, and we'll see how far I can go in two weeks!


  1. Cereals in the morning has always been a bit tricky for me I only eat it once in a while - I feel like I am getting fuller with a regular breakfast for me.
    Enjoy the nice weather this weekend :-)

  2. Have you ever tried the Uncle Sam's cereal? In the beginning I ate that a lot. The only problem is I got hungry a lot quicker than if I had a couple eggs for breakfast. But sometimes there is no time for cooking. I also like to grill up a bunch of extra chicken tenders and keep them in the fridge. That way when I don't have time to cook I can grab a couple of them and a piece of cheese and run out the door.

  3. Like Rosalie, cereal never seems to keep me satisfied for very long. My mom also does the BFC and she buys puffed rice cereal, adds a few blackberries, walnuts, a sprinkle of Truvia, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It really is good. A family reunion - how fun! Have a great week and thanks for sharing!!!
