B and I met up in the morning and made our first shake...
|vanilla with peanut butter and granola|
|herbal tea concentrate, multivitamin, cell activator, and cell-u-loss|
...and within a half hour I hit a wall.
I wasn't expecting that.
I was so tired I had to lay down at work and take a 15 minute power nap. Frustrated, I talked to my "coach" and let him know I really needed coffee. He encouraged me to keep pushing through it and drink more water...so I did...and by the afternoon I had a lot more energy.
I counted how much protein I had throughout the day, and counted calories as well...I focused more on protein. 100 grams of protein is my goal each each day, on day 2 I hit 113! So I skipped my last snack and let myself have a small chocolate treat. :)
My meals broke down like this:
Breakfast: vanilla healthy meal shake with 1/4 c low sugar granola and 1 tbsp of peanut butter
Snack: hard boiled egg, roma tomato, and 1/2 c cottage cheese (I was HUNGRY)
Lunch: vanilla healthy meal shake with 1/4 c oats, 1 peach, and 1/2 a banana
Snack: string cheese and 1 hard boiled egg, handfull of edamame
Dinner: 1/2 c rice, 1 large chicken breast seasoned with sea salt, 1/2 an avocado sliced on top with salsa
Treat: 1 piece of chocolate
I increased my water intake, and started adding lemon juice to it to make it a LITTLE easier to drink so much throughout the day. :)
All in all, day 2 was a little harder...but very worth it.
Today marks day 3, after today I will take my measurements and weigh again, but this morning I took a sneak peak and discovered I have lost 3 1/2 pounds!
May not sound like a lot, but I did that without even looking at a gym...each step counts!...tonight I'm going to do 30 min of yoga and a run around my neighborhood SINCE IT'S FINALLY WARMING UP!!!
I'm way excited to weigh and measure tomorrow and see how the rest of the week goes! I'll post my day 3 meals tonight :)
PS...anyone who watches Glee...HALLELUJAH KURT AND BLAINE!!! The moment I've been holding my breath for since yummy Blaine first batted his eyes :)
