Day 1-264.6 LB

Day one is finally here. I am kind of prepared:( My plan to prepare all my food after shopping last night did not work out so well. I panicked at first, but then took a step back and made some minor changes that will hold me until Sunday.

First I needed dry yellow beans which I thought was pretty common, well after two stores and no beans I came up with a back up plan to just finish up the veggie pasta salad me sister made. It is Clean with the exception of the Italian Dressing on it. (Dang, my first mistake-Oh well move on!) It could be worse! (Ranch).

I also needed fresh basil. Well there must be an Italian fest in town, because both stores where out of fresh Basil. This included the plants! Then I had a bright idea...uh duh...maybe use some of the overgrown herbs I have under my kitchen window.

Ok, so they need a little weeding and it is also time to cut them back. I will be working on that tonight!! I promise.Gardening=Exercise!

Well I was able to get all my veggies cut up, boil the eggs and get the yogurt cheese started (more on that later).

This morning I started to get the pork roast all ready in the crock pot. This lead to me 2nd Clean Eating mistake!

After I put in the potatoes, onion, mushrooms and pork I sprinkled Lipton Soup mix over it! (Dang it-Oh Well move on again!! These little mistakes are not going to derail me this time!!)

I did forget how much I hate measuring everything I eat and writing down everything I eat. I am hoping as time goes on I will know what and how much I can eat at each meal.

So after all that harried prepping this is what I brought to work this morning. I have put every thing in my Spark People tracker. I wish they had the 5 meal tracker and a place to put the time! But I found out that I could use the notes section to keep track of all that full stuff.

Here is my tracker for today.

I like to put everything in there right away in the morning, so I know if I have any room to wiggle. I adjust it and add notes through out out the day.

So far I am feeling pretty good. No head ache yet! (caffeine/sugar detox) I have been hungry more often today than normal. This is due to not eating my whole meal all at once. I will need to find the time in my day to eat each whole meal at a normal pace. This will be something I can work on in the coming weeks.

    Glad to see you back. You can add extra meals. On the nutrition tracker scroll all the way down and on the right there is a button for edit/add meals. You can add at least 3 different categories that I know of so you could have 3 meals and 3 snacks. You may be able to add more than that but I haven't tried it. I added one to track my vitamins separately instead of at meal time. Good Luck with your new adventure!
