Thankfully my last week on the Bone Broth diet. Read about my first week here and second week here. I ended the diet two days early because I had plans for something months before deciding I wanted to do it but 19 days is still a pretty good accomplishment! I’ll be doing a diet overview next week so stay tuned! If you want to skip to my Bone Broth Diet overview, click here! Or if you would like to read about all of my diet experiences, visit here!
So I was really nervous to go to the gym because I haven’t been in a long time and with this new diet I wasn’t sure if I would be really tired from just lifting weights or if I was just going to be a week little bitch since I haven’t gone in a long time. To my surprise, I kicked ass and when I was done lifting weights I thought to myself ‘I still feel like I have a little bit of energy‘ so I ran a mile on the treadmill on top of lifting weights and I feel really good. I ate a pretty big dinner and I’m going to fast tomorrow. Hopefully, I won’t be too hungry throughout the day because I’m usually starving on the day after I work out. Fingers crossed I can make it to dinner.
So not only was I not eating today but one of my co-workers brought me a red velvet bundt cake with cream cheese frosting at work today. I was stuck staring at it all day and I also wasn’t eating so that sucked. Not to mention I LOVE RED VELVET. I did manage to put a slice in the freezer so I can eat it next week, clearly, this diet has taught me nothing. My body felt fine since I worked out yesterday, I’m a little sore but hunger wise I’m not like super famished which was good and I made it to dinner time 24 hours and 3 minutes to be exact. *pats self on back*
Look at that cream cheese frosting.
Of course, two days before I end the Bone Broth Diet, I feel totally content being on this diet and I have just accepted my misery. I felt this same way when I was doing the Whole30 and I think its just because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think also because I have only one more day of fasting left before I can pig out and have alcohol. Again, clearly haven’t learned anything since being on this diet.
Today was my last diet day and it was awesome. I added some pineapple to my typical berry breakfast (so exciting I know) and I went to a tasty restaurant for lunch. Usually going out to eat on any diet sucks because like all you can have is salad BUT there is a restaurant in Tampa/St.Pete called Fresh Kitchen and all they make is healthy food, not to mention they sell Paleo cookies. OMG YUM. The last meal I ate today was dinner and after tomorrow’s fast, I am going to a Mediterranean restaurant to PIG out!
My favorite thing to eat for breakfast.
Fresh Kitchen to the rescue!
Today was my last day on the Bone Broth diet. I had to end it two days early because Gasparilla is this weekend and I have had these plans for months. But I fasted all day and didn’t eat until we were at Carmel Kitchen eating dinner. I surprisingly wasn’t that hungry and just ate some chicken, vegetables, and hummus fries BUT I did have a martini and omg it was like the best thing I have ever tasted. I am proud of myself for lasting almost three weeks on this diet and most of all for surviving several fasts!
