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 i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Healthy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I woke up and had the urge to bake something. At first, I was very VERY intrigued by a wonderful brownie recipe but then I came to my senses...that no, today is Wednesday! And brownies don't happen on Wednesdays around here. So I scolded myself for even thinking about it and swore that I will work out something vigorous instead :) But the scorching desire to bake something was still there! Ahhh! What to do now? I had a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts in the pantry so first let's make some peanut butter! That's healthy. And easy. Way too easy, I needed something more. So when I have peanut butter, let's make cookies with it!! Right??? Such a lovely idea!  I was looking through a couple PB cookie recipes and I originally wanted a no-flour kind but when I saw the amount of sugar each had... I was like no way am I gonna add 1 cup sugar to 1 cup PB. Let alone, I didn't even have 1 whole cup of PB.
