Nothing Unhealthy–Day 1

Well, here we are.  One day down and a second day started.  I’m just here to report that Day 1 went fine.  Fine if you don’t count my excessive feelings of hunger, the overwhelming urge to snack non-stop, and the pounding headache I had developed by noon for lack of my usual coke.  Sure.  No problem.  Piece of cake.  Joyous occasion, was day 1.


Now here we are, and I should be outside starting my Couch 2 5K and here I sit.  Typing away.  Oh, I’ve made up 100 excuses in my mind already.  Yes, I have.  Like, I’ll start tomorrow. Or, it’s too cold out.  Or, I’ll do it tonight.  Yes people, it’s the dark underbelly of the non-motivated Christie.  And it’s u-g-l-y. 

Day 1 Menu


Breakfast:  Mini Bagels, Lox, and Low-fat Cream Cheese, banana
Lunch: Turkey Sandwich with tomato and vegenaise (don’t even ask!) and some grapes
Afternoon snack: 7 almonds (yes, I counted them), handful of blackberries, 2 pretzel rods
Dinner: Leftovers in small portion.  This was two small slices of roast beef, about three tablespoons of mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts
Evening Snack: Carrots dipped in about 1 tbsp of Low-fat Caesar

See!  I told you I was eating all day!  Or craving all day…whichever. 

I didn’t have a coke, but I did have coffee and water.

I didn’t exercise, but that wasn’t the plan to begin with.  The plan is 3x a week and it’s supposed to be M-W-F.  Yeah.  I’m still sitting here…

How did your first day go?  It's not too late to sign up!  See the post below and get your hat in the ring!

Meanwhile, I kinda feel like I’m obsessing about Coke.  What is in that stuff?  It’s more than caffeine, people…just saying. 

And also?  I don’t like this challenge.  When I got on the scale this morning, an automated voice said “one at a time, please”.

Try using low-fat small curd cottage cheese as a mayo replacement. Delish on the BLT I made for Anna today. Not sure what vegenaise is but, I'm guessing the cottage cheese is better. Hang in there, Christie!

Larry told me that when you eat more fruits and veggies you WILL be hungry more often and it's okay. I felt like I was eating every 2 hours today.

Love the humor you put in your posts. Wish I could steal some of that funny! Love ya, Lady! Keep it up.

My first day was difficult - and I wanted to keep munching on food. Today was slightly better :0/

I figure I'll write posts about it every couple of days ...

Keep up the good work!
