IP Phase one
Saturday, January 26, 2013
I always think that someday I will be one of those people who blog all the time... but with my class website to maintain daily and all the other stuff over-flowing my plate, I have come to terms with the fact that being a "daily blogger" isn't going to happen.
I do want to comment on my success on Ideal Protein so far though! I started on January 6. 2013. The first few days were really hard, but starting about day 5, I have been feeling pretty good. I feel like I have been more emotional than normal, I don't know if that is because I am no longer turning to food to comfort me, therefore the emotions are seeming BIGGER, or if I really am more hormonal or something. My boyfriend also started a job working away this month, so I am dealing with that as well.
Food-wise, I still miss eating. I miss nachos and chocolate and sandwiches and wraps and chips with dip. I miss fancy Starbucks coffee and nuts and toast. I miss the excitement that I got from thinking about "what I could eat later!" even though I recognize the unhealthiness of that attitude. I miss wine like a missing best friend... but even with missing all that and more, I am managing to stay on track. I even planned a cheat night, and then my cheat ended up being three ozs of vodka with water and that my salad at the restaurant had like 6 cranberries in it. lol. SOME CHEAT!!! I just couldn't bring myself to throw caution to the wind.
So, here I am, three weeks into the IP thing, and 14lbs down so far. I know I should be excited and celebrating my success so far..... but I'm not quite there yet. Still not completely trusting myself. But working on it!!!
