R4P3D2 - Update

Hi all. So I'm going to make a full blown effort to start taking pictures of what I'm eating and posting recipes. 
Today is my husbands 1st P3 day, and is getting very confused on what he can eat and not eat. So I made him some muffins ( like rolls). I used the Flaxseed muffin recipe and plain almond flour muffin recipe. He prefered the Flaxseed one. For lunch he ended up having 3 of them with some margerine and bavarian smoked cheese - like a sandwich. 
Actually it was such a good idea, and i had one too. They are good. like mini sandwich rolls. 

So this morning we went strawberry & raspberry picking at a local village farm. Lets say I eat alot of the strawberries and raspberries. I think overall today i stayed with calories...however if i have a small gain tommorow I wont be shocked. 

I also tried to make for sugar free fat free frozen yogurt...which actually wasnt too bad at all!! I will post a recipe on that one soon.

End of Round 4

So I know I've been a bit MIA but I've just finished a quick round 4. I only did it for supporting my husband. I had lost 63lbs and he gained 15lbs. Typical I know however he was getting a bit self conscious! Specially with our up coming holiday to Mexico.
So on fathers day weekend a last minute round occurred. I only had 1 HCG vial left with is hucog 5000iu. Taking 125 iu a day only gives 40 days worth. So decided to do 20 day round each I know its supposed to be 23 but that's all we had, and he didn't want to do on his own.
So I went from 133lb which is 1.2 over LIW to 122.4lb as of this morning. However for the first time I gained a popping 8lbs at load!!! Usually only ever 2-3lbs but wholly Molly 8lbs!! And weirdly I looked 7 months preggo the evening of 2nd load! Lol
I'm definately at goal now, don't want to loose anymore and now on P3 as of today.
