Day 6 of the 17 day diet
Saturday, August 06, 2011
Well, its been 6 days and I weighed in. I'm exstatic! I lost another 3.5 pounds! I've lost a grand total of 7 pounds in my first 6 days! Yahoo! This is amazing. I haven't lost this much weight in one week in years. I'm really excited to see how the weight loss continues. I know that I can't keep this up - it will slow down, but I would be absolutely tickled pink if I could lose another 5 pounds in the next 11 days. I think that is reasonable. I had a great time at the farmers market - I bought tons of veggies for the upcoming week and found the most delicious vinegar. It's a peach balsalmic vinegar made locally here in Utah. I sprinkled a little over a fresh cucumber and it was amazing. I bought a peach salsa and tried it over some turkey/veggie stir fry - very good. I'm going to try it over salmon. I'm going out with some friends tomorrow to go shopping and have lunch. I've already decided where we are going and what I'm having. I'm trying to plan ahead - avoid making rash decisions. Or avoid having someone recommend going to some place where I don't have choices that fit with my diet.
So, on the treadmill today, I was thinking about what tips I'm going to take away from this phase of the diet and carrry on to my daily life. Firstly, I'm going to keep drinking Kefir. I really like and I like the effect on my digestive system! Second, I'm going to reduce the amount of carbs I eat. Not to the extent I have in this first phase, but definately reduced from how much I used to eat. Third - I'm going to keep up eating fish, mainly salmon.
So it continues....11 more days till the next phase. Hopefully I won't get bored! If you have any good Salmon recipes, please send them my way!
