Phase 1, Day 4 and 5
Sunday, May 24, 2009
So yesterday was day 4 for me on phase 1...my brother graduated from law school and there was a party. I knew of this ahead of time and knew what to expect. And yes, I did allow myself foods that were not part of phase 1. But I knew that this was coming. I had considered waiting to start Phase 1 until after this party, but I'm glad that I started last week, instead. I feel good about this because if I had waited until today to start, I probably wouldn't start at all! I would keep enjoying delicious left-overs that my parents sent home with us, most likely...Instead, I'm on day 5 today. I'm still counting yesterday as day 4. I'm not starting all over again. This is something that I would do in the past: I'd go 2 days, break down, eat carbs and then start all over again. This would happen repeatedly, even if I got to day 8 w/o breaking...I'd still start back on day 1. I think this broke me mentally, which is one of the reasons that I always had a tough time coming back to South Beach. So I'm making progress!
Today is going well. I bought turkey sausages (2 links = 1 serving, 7 g of fat, 120 calories) plus a couple of eggs (which I should really cut down to 1)...I'm finding that its really getting me through the morning.
All in all, I'm feeling great!
