I’m now well into week 3 of my Daily Burn adventure and thought I’d just give you a little bit of an update on how my first 2 weeks went. And since I’ve had some time to try some of the Daily Burn recipes, I want to share with you one of my favorites so far.
Well, I didn’t lose any weight the first week, but that didn’t get me down. I noticed a major boost in energy, which is something that’s proven to be beneficial. I’m staying up later at night and being much more productive than usual, and productivity is definitely a good thing when you’re a working at home mom of two.
The increased energy keeps me going during the day and unlike before, I don’t yearn for a nap every day (even though I never really got naps before anyways). During my daughter’s nap time I can get some work done, or some blogging completed, and even get my daily workout in.
Although there was a noticeable increase in energy during week 1, I was a little bummed that I didn’t lose any weight. I didn’t let it get me down, though and decided to make some changes to my diet in week 2 while continuing with my Daily Burn workouts.
I cut out as many carbs as I possibly could. No bread, no rice, no potatoes, no pasta. Well, I did say as many carbs as possible – I did have a small portion of mashed potatoes and rather than white rice, I opted for brown rice one evening with dinner. But I was able to manage without any bread or pasta.
In week 2, not only did my energy stay boosted, but I lost 3 pounds! Woohoo! Now I’m working on week 3 and killing it.
Daily Burn Recipe: Crustless Vegetable Quiche
I’ve had a little bit of time to try some of the Daily Burn recipes and so far I am loving the Crustless Vegetable Quiche. No joke, I could have eaten the whole thing by myself. Luckily for my boyfriend, I saved him some and then to my surprise, he finished it off. Even my 10 month old had a few bites. It really is delicious!
There’s a lot of ingredients that go into it, but it’s actually pretty easy to make. Don’t let that fancy “quiche” word scare you. This is the first quiche I’ve ever made and it was definitely love at first bite!
Don’t forget you can sign up with Daily Burn and get a 30 day free trial. In fact, I’m still in my own free trial period. Plus, there are plenty more tasty recipes to try out to help you on your adventure. I can’t wait to try more of them. I’m thinking maybe something to satisfy my sweet tooth would be good next.
