Today was my third day of following my new eating and exercise plan. Yesterday was a bit hard, but today I feel amazing! It's that sugar/carb fog that has lifted and suddenly I just feel so much better. Let's hope it stays for awhile!
I am posting for accountability and for a record of how I'm doing, so here's today:
Breakfast: thick cut bacon, avocado, and blackberries. Iced coffee with sugar free creamer.
Snack: half a protein bar I had in my purse. I ate this while at Urgent Care with one of my kids for three hours. Ugh! (They'll be okay). I also got a Starbucks iced green tea lemonade (no syrup) on the way home.
Late lunch: string cheese, deli smoked ham, tortilla chips and guacamole.
Dinner: bowl of broccoli kale salad, an ear of fresh corn with butter and salt (this was so delicious!) and a fresh juicy peach.
Stats so far: 1002 calories, 99 g carbs, 47 g protein
I will have an approx 100 calorie snack before bed, and it will be protein (probably a string cheese, or a boiled egg).
I drank 11 cups of water today and swam for 45 minutes. I feel wonderful! The lower carbs make so much difference in how I feel.
Looking forward to a fun 4th of July weekend with my family! Hope you have a wonderful time too.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
