Today has gone swimmingly well!
I generally am not hungry in the mornings, so it didn't bother me a whit to skip breakfast. I had an apple mid-morning, as well as a cup of tea.
Lunch was 3.5 ounces baked chicken, seasoned with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning and 3.5ounces fresh broccoli with a smidge of fat free dressing.
I had 6 strawberries for a snack around 2 or so.
Now I'm RAVENOUS and all I have to look forward to is 3.5 ounces of chicken and 3.5 ounces of veggies. FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT!
I have drunk 2 quarts of water, along with 3 cups of tea. Yes, I've been in the bathroom quite a bit today. =)
I am also supposed to drink a glass of V8 for the potassium, but that stuff is NASTY. I am freezing cold today, so I'm contemplating heating it up and pretending it is tomato soup.
I will not cheat. I will stick it out and follow it through.
It's weird how foods I don't normally even care about sound so delicious right now!
Tuna sandwiches with cheese and apples? Yes, please!! Fried egg sandwich? Don't mind if I do! Grilled cheese with a dill pickle? Count me in!
But I can't have any of that. So, I'm off to eat my 3.5 ounces of chicken --which, by the way, is a VERY small portion-- and my 3.5 ounces of fresh spinach and then drink some more water or tea.
I think the key here is to distract myself. So instead of wandering about the kitchen looking at all the things I can't eat, I'll run a hot bubble bath and have a good soak with a book and then head to bed.
That's my plan of action for now. =)
