It is 12am and I have just finished my first day of the official HCG diet which went pretty well I am happy to say.
I made a chicken breast right away when I got up that I was able to split into two meals.
I only ate the chicken breast and was quite hungry later on in the day...so I know not to do that again.
I had bought cukes that my daughter ended up eating, so we went out and bought some more cucumbers today and it was really good to get a cucumber in my stomach.
At dinner I had salmon, an ounce of mushrooms and carrots....which I've found to be not part of the HCG diet so we'll see how that reflects on the scale tomorrow, but we'll see....here's hoping weight will still come off :-)
The family and I went swimming for about a half hour tonight which was nice family time amongst us....my daughter can get the drama rolling when she wants to, but all in all I had a nice time with them.
My husband grilled chicken for the family and made me salmon. It was really yummy, it's been a long time since I've had salmon.
I'm concerned because though 500 calories seems like I have more than that in my mouth at any given time....when I entered into my page today....it totaled around 300. I'm thinking if I buy melba toast that that will help with the deficiency.... I also ate 2 strawberries and about an ounce of raspberries to try and add some calories into my day....I would have never ever thought that 500 calories would be a challenge to EAT!
One more note, twitching eye I noticed the first day has ceased thankfully.I am still in need of purchasing a digital scale....in the meantime, the manual one will have to do....motivation to get a new one though!
