Diet Diaries- Day 8 & 9- bbq challenges

Day 8- memorial day.  I’ve been on the diet for a full week.  I feel really great, a little lighter.  I’ve even noticed that I feel more energetic in my workout.  Maybe it’s psychological, but that’s ok.  I’ll take it anyway I can get it.  So, I woke up and I was in the mood for a greek yogurt.  Not just any yogurt, a yogurt with little pieces of mango.  It actually felt slightly decadent.  I had my usual two coffees and then went to boot camp.  What I like about boot camp is every day is a different workout.  Every fitness instructor will tell you to never do the same thing every day.  The key is to not allow the muscles to get used to something, to change things up.

After boot camp, I went bike riding on the boardwalk.  There were so many people out, enjoying the wonderful day.  I snacked on an apple and some almonds.  Before I knew it, it was lunch time.  I ran to Mauzone to pick up my lunch and dinner.  It is so nice to walk in and have everything waiting for me.  I feel so pampered.  Everyone in Mauzone knows who I am.  It is so nice not to have to think about what I’m going to eat, it’s all waiting for me.

Rachael has everything planned out, making sure I eat the right combinations.  Lunch was stuffed chicken breast on a bed of quinoa, sesame brocolli, and ratatouielle.  I have to say that so far every meal has been so satisfying and delicious.  My husband is even a little jealous.  But, I’m selfish.  I will not share an ounce.

My daughter and son in law were making a barbeque,  so my husband and I decided to give them a break and took our grandson for a walk.  I really see how this diet is affecting the family.  This is the second time in the last few days I’ve gotten my husband out for a walk.  He is really watching what he eats.  I’m so proud of him.  But, I’m still not sharing my meals!!  When we got home I had a peach.  The peaches are in season now, and really good.  I don’t know if it’s because I’m thinking about it more, but I’m really appreciating my food more, tasting every bite, not just eating for the

sake of eating

Because I was going to this barbeque, and knowing I needed to not be hungry when I went, I decided to eat my dinner before I went.  Dinner was so good, I could eat this every night.  Unstuffed cabbage, which is basically cabbage and meat balls, my favorite mashed cauliflower potatoes, (which really taste like mashed potatoes) and baked potatoe fries.  I was so proud of myself, I only ate a little salad at the barbeque.  And for dessert I had watermelon.  I resisted the really yummy chocolate chip cookies which looked heavenly.  I decided it just wasn’t worth it.  I kept thinking, I’m going on the scale in the morning, and there is no way I’m messing it up.

I went to sleep feeling really good about the fact that I’m sticking to this diet.  I know it’s only a week, but you have to start somewhere.  A week can turn into two, and then a month.  I’m looking toward the future, and it’s looking really good.

Day 9, today I woke up and immediately got on the scale.  I was down four pounds total since I started.  Yay!!  Not too bad for nine days.  And the best part is I don’t feel deprived.  I’m not hungry.  Sometimes I have to remind myself to eat a snack, because I know if I don’t, I’ll pay later.

So, I had some much needed coffee, and went to a 6 am boot camp.  I came home and made some eggs and had more coffee.  I was really, really tired, but finally the caffeine kicked in.  I ate an apple when I was driving around doing all my errands, and before I knew it is was 1:30 and I was really hungry.  I ran over to Mauzone, and who should be there but Rachael.  It was so great because she helped me decide what I was going to eat for lunch and dinner.  And, I felt good because she noticed I lost weight.  I always lose weight in my face first ( of course the tush is always last), and so she noticed.

Lunch was turkey on quinoa, and green beans.  By afternmoon I felt hungry again and had some cantelope.  That really filled me up until dinner.

Dinner was schwarma, grilled veggies, and more of those yummy mashed cauliflower potatoes.  I went to an engagement party and only ate some pineapple, even though the chocolate mousse cake looked amazing.  I was so tired and really wanted to go to sleep, but my daughter asked me to come with her to a boot camp class.  I know it was crazy, but how often does the opportunity for bonding happen?  So, I’m feeling great, glad I went.  I’m happy I’ve been able to stick to this, but I’m thinking about next week.  Shavuous, cheese cake, cheese blintzes.  All the things I love to eat.  I must discuss alternatives with Rachael.

Until tomorrow……………………….

    I was just looking for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top sites are full of garbage.
