I know how to do it right, I know the rules, I know what works best for most people, I am happy to help, but I tell ya....following the rules is harder than stating them ;) The first day of no fruit was OK, but day two when I was hungry and the fruit was sitting there was pretty tough. Then there are my other go to snacks of yogurt, string cheese and cereal...not OK for two weeks!
So I have done pretty well, I am keeping tabs on my exact diet on the Beachbody message boards ...I went a little (read lot) overboard on my nut intake the past two days...like instead of a handful I had about 5 handfuls! But I was hungry! I did not touch the forbidden foods, ie. sugar, starch, fruit and dairy!!!
I am back on board today. I got my 30 minute RevAbs Interval workout in and plan to go for a run with the dogs while the kids ride their bikes later. I hard boiled eggs this morning as that is a mere 70 calorie snack which fills me up!
This process is learning for even the experienced. I have decided that spending time making a veggie omelet for breakfast just isn't going to be an option for me. It's not about the time, I just don't enjoy a big breakfast I prefer cereal...which I am cutting out, or Shakeology! How can you not be happy about starting the day with a chocolate peanut butter banana shake...or for this week a chocolate almond shake?!?!? Delicious, nutritious and great on the calories!
I have lost 3 pounds already, my energy is better today...I think I do need to stay a little over the 1100 calorie mark, but I am in the game and ready to keep running towards my goal.
I questioned why again yesterday. Why do I need to do this when I am fit and healthy already? But why not? I have never had 6 pack abs so why not just get it done while I am still relatively young and healthy!!! Would it be easier to commit if I had 50 pounds to lose? You tell me. Is it? You have your health as a driving force but commitment is commitment, sacrifice is sacrifice and goals are goals! Make those goals big and keep working towards them! Let me know how I can help you!
