So tomorrow is going to be the first day that I eat on a meal plan! Wish me luck!
I have thought of interchanging things a lot when it comes to breakfast. That way I will not feel like I am on an actual diet. I thing variety is a key when it comes to breakfast. Again thank you for all the lovely ideas Plus, I tend to have less sugar cravings in the evening if I have had a breakfast that I really enjoyed on that day.
As for lunch, I plan to have plenty of steamed vegetables and every now and then some steamed chicken. I m going to even try broccoli for the first time in my life! Hope that goes well! I ve never liked that tiny "tree formed" green stuff. I ve heard that a lot of lemon on top makes it tasty. We ll see about that!
For a snack, I think that crunchy vegetables like carrots or cucumbers are going to help me feel like I m eating something "solid" while not taking in too many calories. I m going to follow SP's advice and keep them cut in tupperware for me to have something prepared when I feel like having a snack! (which cannot wait).
If I feel that I have the need for something sweet, I m going to have pomegranate juice which has no added sugar. You might tell me that it is not sweet, but to me having something with a strong taste will do the work.
For dinner I will keep it light, with plain greek yogurt or greek yogurt with rice (mixed together!).
Again, wish me luck!
I spent a nice and relaxing weekend with friends, going out and playing games together online.
I feel ready to start my week with the most positive spirit ever!

I ve been using the spark activity tracker and I find it really motivating! I love how it tracks exercising on its own.
Although I haven' t cooked this past week, I ve tried not to overindulge in fast food and ice cream. Although I think that I ve spent every day of the past week eating a tiny bit more than what I ve been burning, I feel my clothes a little more loose! I haven' t been on a scale yet, but it feels like I am healthier!
Maybe walking every day and pushing myself to walk some more just for the fun of tracking has had results! And since this journey isn't just about a number on the scale, I m happy with my progress so far. Ok, it could have been better, but at least I m keeping myself under control, I haven t turned to emotional eating, and I m trying to be as active as possible!
I ve spent the past few days redecorating my apartment, just small things, trying to give it a fresh look. It has helped me a lot to feel that the past is behind me.
I am very positive about the future! I am giving myself some time to adjust to the recent changes in my life but overall I am feeling ok. Every day I m less and less sad and I m getting more and more used to how things are.
