Day 5 & 6 went fairly well. I ain’t gonna lie, it is hard to only eat 500 calories per day! For one, I would love to just go out somewhere and enjoy some family time at a restaurant, while pigging out on whatever I choose. Two, is my husband loves to watch the food channels, which I’m glad he enjoys, but when he says “Look at that” or “doesn’t that sound great” – it makes me cringe. I know he doesn’t do it on purpose; he does it out of his love for food and habit since he has always done this since day one of our marriage. Three, I keep snacks in the house for the kids, both healthy and not-so-healthy. The healthy ones I couldn’t eat right now if I wanted to. Another piece of truth: I took a bite of a Chick-fil-a nugget… and savored… every single chew. It was that dramatic.
Day 5 is when I wore myself out. I ran around getting our daughter’s birthday party together. It turned out great, but it strained me. I need to take things a bit slower because I don’t have the calories needed to run around like I would normally. Of course it doesn’t help when I do most things last minute. I crashed around 830p. Though I thoroughly enjoyed my VLCD chili! Oh man, that was a diet saver – filled me right up and I was happy. The hubby was so kind into making that for me.
Day 6 was a good day. My muscles hurt a little, but went away after some water and morning organic strawberries chopped up with stevia. Coffee of course was on my agenda. I had more energy that day and felt positive. We went to a birthday party at a roller rink and I actually got out there on the rink. It was so funny because I used muscles I haven’t used in years! Guess what that means? I’m gonna go back out there!
Dinner was again the VLCD chili, but I needed to add two pieces of melba toast. I was running low on calories that day – around 420. I wanted to make sure I was hitting the 500 mark. I even had two pieces of turkey pepperoni added to my foods, but that didn’t even help hit the 500.
It’s going fairly good so far. It’s hard because I still get hungry and I still have this temptation all over. My willpower can only do so much.
Woot woot! I’m passed the 210 goal! Next goal is the 199…
