Day 2 of My Recommitment

A good day, I think. After dinner, I made the decision to have 6 meals today, instead of 5, with two whey protein shakes after dinner, spaced a couple hours apart. I was really hungry this evening, so I figured I needed the calories. Here’s how today went:

30 minute run

M1: 1/2 cup scrambled egg whites, 1/2 c oatmeal with 1/4 c sugar free syrup and 1 T flax oil

45 minute chest workout

M2: Myoplex lite shake w/glutamine

M3: 4 oz ground turkey w/1T organic ketchup, 1 c. steamed asparagus

M4: 5 oz chicken breast, 1 c cauliflower, 3 c salad w/light ranch dressing

M5: whey protein shake w/1 T sugar free pudding

M6: whey protein shake w/1 T sugar free pudding

Total calories: 1,492

4 liters of ACV water.

Some real successes today – not a single addition that isn’t listed here – thought about adding fat-free cheese here or there, didn’t. Watched a movie with my girls and made them microwave popcorn and DID NOT EAT A SINGLE KERNEL. Ordered pizza and curly fries (at their request) for the girls and did not eat a SINGLE BITE. I’m in touch today with the fact that I cannot afford a single compulsive bite. So, I avoid it like a poison. And so far, SO SO SO GOOD!

Oh, and did I mention I have stayed away from the scale, too? YEAH, baby! Two days and counting.

Good job! A thought: Try using just a tablespoon of the sf syrup instead of the entire 1/4 cup. I used to use the entire 1/4 c alloted serving too until I was just about out one day. I didn't even notice the difference. And, it will lower your calories (and give you more room to add good calories).

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm gonna pass on this one. I have tried it, and it really is not the same to me. Plus, the whole 1/4 cup only has 35 calories, so what would I save myself? 20 calories? I'd rather run an extra 10 minutes on the treadmill.

I'm just jealous that you get the syrup. No syrup or SF pudding for me :( It's really the small things you cut that make a TON of difference!

Well, I promised myself when I started this process that I wouldn't eat anything that tasted nasty. Oatmeal tasted nasty without it. So, it's a compromise. If it takes a little longer this way, I'm okay with that.that being said, Tony would definitely prefer I leave it out.
