Day 3

Friday, October 12, 2012

Today was not easy. The stress levels at work were very high and I suffered cravings all through the day. Many longing looks were sent towards the sweets table and I was almost salivating over the idea of some chocolate but I had a cup of coffee instead, which helps.
Still, my desk being situated right next to a table loaded with cookies, chocolate, Bounty bars, Lion bars, Twix and other goodies is not easy, especially since I got used to snacking freely.

Anyway, I stuck to my planned foods and did not go into Pizza Hut or McDonalds on the way home even though the idea of pizza and/or fries sounded really good. Neither did I buy chips or croissants during shopping (sigh) but stuck with meat, eggs and other low card goodies. I wish I could find some unsweetened jello though but it's not sold in Belgium, nor are pork rinds.
Oh well. I'll have a teaspoon of peanut butter for dessert. emoticon

    Stay strong! You can do this. Just think, in a few days those horrible cravings will be gone, and you'll be left wondering how they even tempted you so often. You can do it.

The First Day

Thursday, October 11, 2012

So, yesterday was my first day back on Atkins induction. It's not undiscovered territory for me as I low-carbed before, once managing to lose about 15kg.
All in all, it was a good day. There was some temptation as I didn't eat breakfast (I rarely do) and the office has like 5 pounds of candy sitting on a table close to my desk. Lesson learned, I'll eat something low-carb for breakfast from now on.
After dinner (chicken breast and chicory greens) I was still a little hungry, so I boiled up some eggs, deviled them and ate 3 halfs at once. Hunger gone and I felt nice and satisfied.

I stayed well within my phase, but seem to be low on vitamins. Off to get a multivitamin, I guess.


Got in my 15 minutes of decluttering too, although it was not on the existant mess but rather to clean up the full garbage bag the dogs had pulled down from the cabinet and tore to pieces, scattering everything through my kitchen and hallway. Sigh. I try not to scold them too much as they're forced to be alone the whole day while I go to work and they're bored but still, I could do without stuff like this.
I also noticed that one of the cats (Ciske, a young unneutered male) has been eating my japanese peace lily which explain the diarrhea. The plant is now situated well out of reach of curious and crazy little tomcats.

In other news, it's getting pretty cold at night and the heating in my bedroom doesn't seem to work. Darn.
