F-Factor Step 1 (Day 2) & DIY No Sew Face masks

Morning everyone! I can't believe how many new followers I received on my @britishblueberry instagram, that it's Sunday, OR that it's now deemed disrespectful to go out without a face mask. In a panic, I tried to make Aspen and I matching ones from Toy Story Bedding, but this led to him having a hissy fit that he couldn't breathe, material everywhere, and a massive melt-down in the middle of our "new" neighborhood. Here is the tutorial we used, and trust me-It's not as easy as it looks. Even when you try to cut a bedsheet into a bandana.

With all that said lets dig in to day #2 on F-Factor Step 1. Now before I get started we all have to backtrack to Day #1. Thanks to a very supportive F-factor community, it was brought to my attention that I was eating "one" to many carbs. Tanya is known for her saying "Fiber and protein at every meal makes loosing weight no big deal" BUT I was taking that to the extreme. It's important to stick to three carb sources per day whether thats GG crackers, 20/20 powder, Fruit OR Fiber cereal.

F-Factor Step 1 (Day 2)

Breakfast 10:40am

  • F-factor 20/20 strawberry shake

  • Carrots & salt and vinegar Kale chips

Thoughts: I ate breakfast later than usual which always backfires. I'm still hungry!

Lunch 12:15 Pm

  • Feta salad (iceberg, argula, tomatos, 1/4th cup feta cheese)

  • Seaweed

  • 1/2 cup Julians Bakery progranola with 0% Fage yogurt

Thoughts: Why is day two always harder than day one for me? I tried to stop after the salad but I was craving carbs. Not going to lie, I LOVE CARBS ( It's a British thing) so I went for some Julians granola with 1 serving of greek yogurt.

Dinner 5:30Pm

  • Zucchini noodles + Mixed vegs

  • Salad with lettuce, arugula, tomatoes, cauliflower rice, tuna and shrimp

  • Tumero's whole wheat wrap

Thoughts: I skipped a snack which I shouldn't have done and indulged in SF jello for dessert along with ANOTHER serving of Greek Yogurt. OOPS! Lesson learnt: Don't skip the snack and listen to the rules. They're in place for a reason.
