Day Three... feeling like this is good...

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!!!


  1. I wrote you a really long comment and then deleted it :(

    Way to go, you are doing great! Especially without much protein. I love proteins, almost as much as carbs. And you will get used to waking up earlier, if I can, anyone can!

  2. Ha Ha! I love that you commented on your cute pilates teacher! My Wii fit instructor does nothing for me *lol*

  3. Thanks for the support and comments. It helps a lot to know that people are reading and monitoring my progress. It helps keep me on track. I am a total people pleaser and so knowing that someone is watching me helps me to feel like I need to do better and be better.
    @Kris... of course I commented on him! He's gorgeous with an amazing smile and perhaps one of the best instructors... he also likes to play with my toe ring... hahaha
