I did good with my eating plan today. I am surprised at how well I am doing actually. It hasn't been that difficult. Here's what my day of food looked like:

Breakfast - Greek yogurt 0% regular with 1 packet of Truvia and 4 fresh strawberries mixed in, green tea, lemon water

Lunch - deli turkey slices, spinach salad with fat free dressing, grapes, pickles

Snack - Greek yogurt with Truvia packet

Dinner - salad with chicken, salsa, fat free cheese, and tomatoes, steamed veggies

I am satisfied and don't really crave anything lately. I don't know that I follow the diet perfectly, but I feel like I am doing good. I am happy with my choices and progress. T be honest, I am nervous about the next cycle. Next week I will be done with cycle 1 and it just flew by. Cycle 2 will be harder to keep track of, but I can do it. It rotates days. Every other day you incorporate 2 starchy carb servings into your daytime meals and you can also add in more types of protein. I am scared to switch cycles because I have this cycle down and am doing good. I don't want to mess up in cycle 2. The book clearly says to only stay on cycle 1 for 17 days though. I can always come back to cycle one later on in cycle 4 (is it?). I can't remember exactly. I know Thursday is over a week away, but I feel the need to plan ahead. Maybe it will help my success!

I am also nervous that I might not lose much in cycle 2 and I switch to cycle 2 just 10 days before my sister's wedding. That means that I need to lose as much as possible over the next week. Then, my plan is to workout as much as possible once I hit cycle 2, especially on those higher carb days.

We'll see how it goes. I don't want to worry too much because it is still a week away but a lot can change in a week.

On the kids front, they are doing better. My son is picking up a cough. Seems to worsen each day. It is the second noticeable day that he has had it. Daughter is back to herself! Woo hoo! 2 more days of school and then we get Friday off. Can't wait for a 3 day weekend!
