It's just day three and I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I am actually starting to feel good. Okay, truth be told, getting up at 5:30 this morning was BRUTAL and I really didn't think I could and I was tired for most of the day... but I didn't feel like it was a reflection of the food or exercise, I felt like it was because I just wasn't getting to bed at the right times... so that will need to be remedied next.
Here is how today looked for me:
5:30 AM - 45 minute walk just like yesterday... the hill is killer but my lungs, heart, legs and rear end will thank me later for it!! ;)
Breakfast: 2/3 cup of oatmeal with 1 egg white (I really feel the need to some sort of protein in the morning.... it keeps me going longer in the day and with teaching the little people, I need all the help I can get). I also topped it with 4 strawberries and a banana... YUM and PRETTY!!
Snack: 1/2 cup watermelon.
Lunch: 2 cups of green salad with some salt, pepper and about 1/3 cup of yogurt. I also had some sauteed broccoli (this had more oil that I would have liked and I will work on not taking it next time... but it seemed the better choice than the bread, creamy soup and baklava - our lunch is provided for us at school... thank God for the salads!!).
Snack: 2/3 cup watermelon
4:50: 20 minutes on the stationary bike and then I went to pilates class for 50 minutes. It was HARD!! I'd been gone from it for about 3 weeks for one reason or another... glad to be back at it. Love my instructor (and yes, he is cute and it helps).
Dinner: 1/4 eggplant, 1/2 zucchini cooked with 1/2 a can of tomatoes. Same as yesterday. I had it leftover and it was just YUMMY!!
Snack: Yup... you guessed it... watermelon! About 1/2 a cup this time.
So that's today. I'm starting to feel fuller off the food and like I have the energy to hit the gym etc. It's a good feeling... now... how to deal with an Easter dinner on Sunday that a friend invited me to... *sigh* Still detoxing until next Wednesday!! Can't wait to try adding meats and fish back in the diet.... gonna be good!!!
