Groceries: Week 1

Well, Husband and I just sorted through what groceries we will need for the first 7 days of our 17 Day Diet. The book, fortunately, has breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack example plans already laid out for each cycle, and for the first week, we're going straight from the book. So for this 7 days, we will need:

  1. Eggs (lots and lots of eggs)
  2. Red grapes
  3. Apples
  4. Peaches
  5. Blueberries
  6. Diet green tea 
  7. Lettuce 
  8. Spinach leaves
  9. Chicken breast (insane amounts of chicken breast)
  10. Bell peppers (red, orange, and yellow)
  11. Carrots (frozen and raw)
  12. Cucumbers
  13. Green beans
  14. Onions
  15. Tomatoes
  16. Truvia (instead of sugar or Sweet & Low)
  17. 7 lemons
  18. Sugar free yogurt 
  19. Balsamic vinegar
  20. Cabbage
  21. 15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes
  22. 14 oz. can of fat free chicken broth
  23. Turkey breast or tenderloin
  24. Turkey patties
  25. Ground turkey
  26. Sugar free strawberry jam
  27. Frozen strawberries
  28. Flaxseed oil
  29. Kefir 
  30. Taco seasoning
  31. Shredded, reduced fat cheddar cheese
  32. salsa
I mean.. This is ONE WEEK's worth of food. I'm slightly intimidated. At least for the first week I don't have to worry about school and preparing food. That will definitely be nice. 

I'm planning on cleaning out my refrigerator and pantry on January 2nd, so if anyone wants our excess food, please feel free to come and take it. It's not all junk, it's just stuff we're not allowed to have (pasta, Hamburger Helper, lunch snacks, brown rice, etc.).

Oh, by the way, we're officially starting this plan on January 3rd, so as to avoid New Years and the garbage that will be consumed during that time. January 2nd will be when I purchase everything on the afore-mentioned list and also when I rid our cabinets of excess food, and then by the 3rd, we'll be good to go!

I was talking to Husband at dinner tonight about what I am most excited for with this new diet plan. My whole life I have tried dieting and never had ultimate success (obviously). What I'm looking forward to is, once I lose some weight (even if it's not all the way down to my goal weight) being able to say that I actually did it. I've never had that kind of victory before because it never worked. I think once I know I can do it, it will be that much easier to maintain because I will have done it before. Because as it's always stood "I haven't ever been able to, so it must not be possible." 

I want to make it a possibility.

  1. Good Luck, Kaycie!! That is a lot of food, but at least you can make some good meals. I know you'll do great, and hopefully this will be the one that works.

    Oh, and Happy New Year! See you in 18 days....
