Day Six with the Desert Cliff's food plan and now my week is coming to an end. If I were religiously following this program, I would have spent the day hiking in Zion National Park. But, Saturday is a day of work at home when you aren't on a holiday, so no work out for me on the last day. Maybe I could have squeezed out another pound? Maybe not. But I am still pleased with my results.
Lunch today, was another delectable wrap of turkey, sprouts, spinach and laughing cow cheese in a wheat tortilla. Of course, we had another huge baggie of cut veggies as well as a bag of grapes. I was able to save those for a perfect afternoon snack.
Dinner left me speechless. As in...how did they do that? How did they feed us this meal and dessert for under 500 calories? Wow. We had steak. A small, but perfectly cut steak. Grilled, seasoned and nice and tender. With that we had steamed veggies and.....wait for it.....potato salad!! Who can have a cup of potato salad when they are dieting? At Desert Cliffs you can. Our chef has come up with the most amazing recipe, chock full of veggies and creaminess. I was impressed. And for dessert, we had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. Oh, for the love of the makers of Skinny Cow. Dinner felt like we were celebrating the 4th of July at a BBQ outside. Loved it.
I'm sorry to say my week of being spoiled is over. I've learned so much and I feel great!
And now.....the results. I lost 4.4 lbs this week. I haven't been able to lose that much weight in a week in a decade, when my metabolism wasn't a weakling! I'm sure, had I attended all the workouts and hikes I could have easily reached 7 lbs and I really mean that. If I can do it, anyone can!!
A week at Desert Cliffs is a great way to kick off your life style change. Better still...two weeks really gets you going. A client of ours recently checked out after a two week stay with a weight loss of 19 lbs and 12 1/2 inches. Incredible.
Thank you to the Desert Cliffs staff, John and Leanne Kemp, Kim, Lynette and Apryll for everything!
Get out there...and GO TAKE A HIKE!
