Well Day 1's dinner didn't go as well as planned. We ended up eating in the hotel bar at my parents hotel. So I had a beef dip. It was small and good. But not on my meal plan. But here's the good thing about yesterday. I made it through day 1.
Day 2 is starting out pretty good. So far I've had prunes and a meal replacement shake. The meal replacement shake is 1 protein, 1 fat and 1 starch. So it's loaded. I'm also downing my water like a good girl. My lunch is going to be 2 cups of lettuce with 1 tablespoon of oil dressing and a 1/2 cup of carrots. Dinner will be a * bare naked chicken * with asparagus. And for my snack 1 cup of strawberries. As of this morning I'm already down 1 lbs.
I am hungry. But that's only because I have been overeating all starchy foods for the last 6 months. And it's going to take awhile for my insulin to balance out my body. Plus I need to stretch my foods out which is a work in progress. But every step is a step in the right direction.
I'm planning on hitting the gym on Thursday while my cleaning lady is here. I
hope pray that the girls co-operate. I need to get back to my running and I absolutely have to get back into the pool! I have a little under 7 months to get tri ready. And no I will not be doing the Olympic tri, I will be doing the small one still. My swimming is so bad I'd rather take my time and build up to the bigger swims. I would do an Olympic duo, but not a tri.
Okay I think I've bent your ears enough today about the lifestyle change. I have another post rolling around in my head I might just start today. I don't know. Lol! Can you tell none of my babies are sleeping. I'm killing time with one in the excersaucer beside me right now. Lol!
*Bare naked chicken* is a recipe I found with balsamic vinegar, chicken stock, onions, and pepper. I am going to make it for my first time tonight. It's from the Best of the Best cookbook series. I love those books!
