Day 7!

Wow. I can hardly believe I made it here! When the 2nd day was already sooo hard :D
Actually, as time passes, its getting easier and easier. I did not cheat once. I didnt even have any temptation to cheat. Although vegetable juice is definitely not for me. It is disgusting.
And I am sooo sick of juices and smoothies, its crazy... Id rather eat the fruit itself than having it mixed up with another fruit. Nope, not anymore, I am officially done with the juice fasting! Yay! Today was my 2nd day after coming off the fast. So I ate the vegetables in the soup! And ate a fruit salad! Eating solid food is just sooo goood!
But as of now, I have not lost a poud of weight. None. Although I feel like I have but in reality, nope...It was kinda really disappointing for me. Okay, I got really mad that I havent been eating and I still dont lose any weight blahblahblah.....
My skin is a lot clearer, though. Dont have cravings anymore. I get full after eating only a little...I have more energy and I dont need coffee for that. I wake up early every morning which is a big deal for me since Im a morning nightmare...So grumpy, so do-not-talk-to-me, so tired mornings are gone! I wake up and I have a good mood, I have motivation to work out, to do things...
Hmmm...I think thats all the benefits Ive noticed so far...
I am sooo happy Im done with it. So much! And I swore to myself never ever again have such a fantastic idea of doing a juice fasting :D Its not easy...
So this week, I am allowed to eat 3 times a day! A breakfast like a greek yogurt with nuts, or outmeal, or fruits...Then a lunch of a salad and a soup and a dinner of a salad again...But I can put goat cheese and feta into my salad! So yessss...I cant wait to have alll kinds of yummy salads. Im kinda sick of soups, too but theyre inevitable. They are very good for us. And very easy to digest.
Ill try to workout everyday now. I wanna get into shape in 2 weeks for my trip! :) And thats why I couldnt afford to buy that gym membership so Im doing the work at home...
I want to do only cardio workout since Ive got enough muscles, I only want to slim down and not shape up. So Im using my mini trampoline and some cardio dvds. Id go for jogs but its not warm. DUH, it is february! :D
So, so far I am doing good :) I am starting to be proud of myself :)

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utte
