I am on day number 4 of my weight loss journey and it’s been going good so far. Well, except for when my husband wanted to make Tacos. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to handle it so I thought of a solution and made a Broccoli Taco Bowl and it worked perfectly! I mean, it wasn’t “Tacos” but it was delicious and I actually really enjoyed it! So then today I was craving something sweet and delicious but had to be careful what I ate or drank. I’m really determined to lose this weight — I am down 6.3 pounds as of today!!! (you can check out my start weight and “before pictures” here) but still love food and love a little treat now and then.
For some strange reason I started thinking about how good a Sonic Cherry Limeade would be and how I could totally go for one like RIGHT NOW. I started blabbering to Joe how I was just going to make my own. Since I can have diet soda on my weight loss plan I thought about using Diet Sprite, Cherry Syrup and a fresh lime squeezed in it, but then I remembered that I couldn’t have the syrup and was totally bummed out. Joe must have known I needed this drink because not only did he get me some Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi but he also stopped and picked up some of my favorite crushed ice, you know the kind that is in little balls just like Sonic!
Yeah, he earned some serious brownie points today! This crisis was adverted thanks to his creative thinking!
I know technically this isn’t a Sonic Cherry Limeade but it works while I’m on my weight loss plan, the Medifast 5&1 Program so that works for me. It was really good after a very long day and I will definitely be making this again even when I’m not trying to lose weight!
Skinny Cherry Limeade
- 1 can of Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi
- Crushed Ice I personally like the little round balls myself
- 4 teaspoons of Lime Juice
- Super simple... just add your Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi, crushed ice and your lime juice to a fun glass.
- Stir and enjoy!
This would be considered as 2 "condiments" on the Medifast 5&1 plan!
HERE ARE THE 5 MEDIFAST MEALS THAT I ENJOYED TODAY AS PART OF MY 5 & 1 PLAN:
