Super Clean!

Hi, everyone!

I'm on day 2 of really super clean eating. It was a hard day, I'm not going to lie. I was in a meeting all day today and although I did well this morning, bringing my 2nd meal to work with me, I was a mess for the rest of the day. (But I hung in there and was successful!) I begged my colleagues to order from Saladworks, but to no avail. They wanted Panera. I was diligent, and looked online at the nutrition info, and couldn't believe that the salads were close to 500 calories, before the dressing! I asked them for lettuce and chicken, lowest fat, lowest sugar dressing. No roll, no apple, no chips, thank you. Then, my colleagues got their food - paninis, potato soup, chips, UGH! Thank God for my friend, Melissa. I texted her all afternoon and she just texted me right back. Hang in there. Get over it. Get over yourself! It's just food and you're not goin to starve! (And I didn't.)

So, here's how I did today:

6 am - 3 mile run
7 am - Pseudo myoplex shake (I decided to do this before I had all the supplies. They're on the way.)
10 am - egg whites and oatmeal w/sugar-free syrup
1 pm - salad with chicken and lo-fat poppyseed dressing
3 pm - more salad with more chicken and fat-free raspberry dressing
6:30 pm - grilled chicken (overcooked and dry - YUCK) and steamed broccoli
8:15 pm - chocolate lava cake with about 1/4 c. sugar-free ff pudding with protein powder

Okay - I had a couple of moments where I did my own thing, but for the most part, I'm DAMN proud of how I did today. Tomorrow, we'll try to do it all over again! I'm determined to stick with this until it gets easy.

More tomorrow,

You are doing a great job! Way to take the initiative to look for nutrition information, not only to look, but to actually consider it when ordering. I'm bring recipes today, so you will have more options so that making good choices will be easier. You'll find that when you prepare your own food you give yourself the opportunity to make good decisions before your put in a tempting situation.

It seems like you are getting a lot of helpful advice and encouragement. You have built yourself a great support system, so use it when you need it.

Keep doing what your doing, I promise it will be worth it! I'm looking forward to seeing you today!

Hi...I saw your name on Melissa's blog and I just wanted to reach out. I've known Melissa for years, we took classes together at Stetson. I was reading your post on eating super clean and that is awesome. It's great how you are able to eat clean in the real world. I find it to be the hardest thing. At home all day...I can eat perfect but get me outside.
Well...check out my blog and say hi.
