Week 1 Done " Discipline Challenge"

Pin It
It's not over yet

My biggest mistake whenever I try to stick to something, is that I make a mistake and then I give up. I am really hard on myself! Although this weekend was hard to get through with family in town and temptation all around, I gave in a little, and could have gone back to my binge ways. I used to tell myself, " well I already cheated, may as well go all out and have the rest". That is not the healthy way to think. We all fall into temptation and if we continued down the road to sin, well let's just say it would not be pretty. So I have learned that even if I did have a cheat food, that I need to immediately pick myself back up, remember my goal, ask God and my accountability partner to help me, and get back on track. No one said life would be easy and although I wanted more than 5 pounds off this week, I know it is a slow process and I have to stick with it and be patient. Visible results could take up to 4 weeks, so it is time to dig my heals into this.

Okay so here is the side by side of week 1 =5 lb. loss

Dinner recipe to try
Pecan crusted Chicken

1 cup crushed pecans
2 chicken breast
Gluten free Quinoa flour or some other kind
2 eggs
Mrs. Dash Table Blends
4 Tbsp Coconut oil

Serving options
With honey mustard sauce
Balsamic Diced cherry glaze sauce
Diced sauteed Apples

Pound out your chicken until it is thin with a meat mallet. Coat the chicken in flour, then egg, then pecans. Next heat a large skillet to med. high with the oil in it. Set your oven to 400 degrees. When you can hear a sizzle in the pan after adding a tiny drop of water to it, then it is ready to add the chicken. Gently place the chicken in the pan. Cook for about four minutes or until golden brown and flip to the other side. After another four minutes on the other side, place it in the oven, leaving it in the pan, and cook for 8 minutes or so. Serve with your favorite topping or eat just like it is.
