Day 2

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Day 2 went well, still no coffee and no white carbs. I did break down in the afternoon and had 2 ritz crackers with peanutbutter. Considering there are cookies and chocolate in the house it could have been a lot worse :)
My meals were similar to yesterday, except for dinner
Breakfast: eggwhite, strawberry and spinach smoothie, pot of Devonshire English breakfast tea
Snack: 1/3 cup of almonds
Lunch: 3 oz cold salmon with spinach salad
Snack: citrus mix, pot of Darjeeling tea
Naughty: 2 small ritz crackers w/ peanut butter
Dinner: 3oz cold salmon mixed with 1/2 diced apple, pecans, shredded spinach and 1 teasp of ranch dressing

Ok, that's a lot of spinach but I bought 2 bags last week and it needs eating up :)

So far the challenge is sticking. I believe I am the all-or-nothing type, cold turkey works for me. Limiting, rather than eliminating doesn't work for me - I know myself and a little bit of that here and there adds up to failure. I have also learned the first time around on this plan that 1 day "off" takes 4 days to recover from, so not worth it!
I firmly believe that it's 80% in the mind and thanks to this challenge my head is in the right place to make it happen! (I know, it's early days yet...)

    Yeah...good for you. I am exactally the same....better to have none than to limit something. My DH wants to go out to eat but I had just about gotten my egg white stuff ready to go and was tempted but told him we could go out tomorrow not today. it's hard as when you are retired he wants to eat out to have something to do. I need to find him a hobby.
keep up the good work.

    I love raw spinach, never have been able to bring myself to eat is cooked by itself. I like in inside things, like in toasted ravioli. Everything I have read says that it is dangerous to eat raw egg. Doesn't that concern you? Or is is different if you just have the egg whites?

    I fully agree with you!
I am the same as you! All or nothing... but I have learned to make that work for me and not against.
