Week Three: Day One

Woo-hoo!!!  One more week down....and I've said goodbye to another 3.5 pounds!  Yep, total of 11 pounds now.  AND I'M NOT STOPPIN'!

DIET:  Today, I began eating my 500-calorie meal (for those who are new? I'm doing Slim Fast this week) for lunch instead of dinner.  I realize it is only day one, but I am thinking this is waaaaay better already!  I'm not hungry tonight, I haven't been hungry all day, and I actually got the laundry put away while the rest of the family ate dinner.  I had a shake for breakfast and dinner, an orange for morning snack, a Slim Fast snack bar for afternoon snack, and I'm very happily chomping on 30 pistachios for my evening snack.  Lunch was pretty darn sweet.  One full can of Progresso Light Meatball Soup (160 calories), 2/3 cup of mashed potatoes (160 calories), one colby jack cheese stick (80 calories), and one slice of bread (80 calories).  It was super filling, AND I had energy throughout the day.  Nice.

EXERCISE:  Yeah.  Remember how I was going to head out for a nice walk when Shaun got home and sat down to dinner with the kids?  Hmmmm.  Didn't happen tonight, but maybe tomorrow!  I completely rearranged and "gutted" the play room today - ended up with a full box of goodies for the Goodwill - and this took ALLLL day.  I'm not sure how many readers have four children, but you can at least imagine trying to clean a playroom while all the kids are home.  One step forward, six steps back.  That was my entire day.  So...didn't feel like heading out for a walk this evening, but I did put the laundry away at a fast pace.  Ha, ha, ha. 

BEVERAGES:  Water.  The End.

TIPS/ISSUES:  As I mentioned above, today was the easiest day I've had on Slim Fast!  I do enjoy the shakes and bars and snacks, but I was having a little bit of a hard time making it to dinner.  Then, dinner was SO good, and there would always be leftovers staring me in the face.  Tonight, there was leftovers, but I didn't care about them because I didn't have the taste lingering in my mouth.  My lunch was delicious and I timed it to be eaten when the kids were all eating lunch, too, so we sat down together.  They "don't like" soup (quotation marks because that is according to them), so they weren't interested in what I was eating, and I shared the rest of the mashed potatoes.  I like not being hungry and I like thinking I probably burned the lunch calories during my frustrating cleaning frenzy.  All in all, the day went well!

Good night!
