Day 3

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.

Hi Lyn! I am finally commenting today after having spent the last few months reading your entire blog from the beginning. I am a 30 year old mom of three and I see so much of myself in your words, I feel truly touched by everything you write. You have a wonderfully introspective mind and I admire your ability to work through your past. I appreciate your frequent updates more than you know, as it is so comforting to read the words of people who are fighting the same battle. I am glad you had a good day today and I hope they continue, you are a good person (and an obviously loving and awesome mother)and I wish the best for you!
