Round Two….Get Ready for the Knockout


The Tale of the Tape

Height:  5’2″

Current weight:  131 lbs

I stepped on two different types of scales at my gym this morning.  One gave me about 131 lbs, the other 131.6 lbs.

I had already run about 2 miles, consumed a gluten-free waffle with a tablespoon of peanut butter, a hard-boiled egg and a small cornbread biscuit, along with my morning coffee and some water.

So…I am probably about 130 lbs at the beginning of this, my second, 10-day Shred.

Waist:  29″

Hips: 36.5″

Right Thigh: 19.75″

According to the handheld device at the gym my Body Fat % is 25 and my BMI is 23.6.  Both normal for my height, weight and age!

Like last time, I am excited to keep healthy things on hand.  Today, I bring you this recipe:

Baked Chickpeas, Sweet Potato & Red Onion

2 cans chickpeas, drained & rinsed

1 medium sweet potato, peeled & chopped

1 medium onion, peeled & chopped

1-2 Tb coconut oil

 1 tsp Sea salt

1-2 tsp Curry powder

1-2 tsp Cinnamon

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

Line a baking sheet with parchment or spray baking tray with oil.  Spread mixture onto baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 36-40 minutes.

The smell is divine!

And you can add whatever seasonings you prefer.  Make it to satisfy your taste buds!

Remember, the purpose of the Shred is

~to detox from: gluten, dairy, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods.

~to eat whole, healthy foods:  fruits & veggies (Juice Plus+ for most of us), protein-packed smoothies, water, plant-based proteins.

~to exercise 30 minutes (minimum) daily.

~to ensure adequate rest nightly.

~to eat & drink frequently so that we never go hungry.

This is NOT a process of starvation or deprivation.

Fuel your bodies for the energy you expend. 

Food is Fuel
