That title describes my diet rather than any activity I might (or might not) be doing at the moment.
I am following the nutrition plan to the letter. Now I have no issue with the food, after all who can complain about meals comprising Bircher muesli, scrambled eggs with baked beans, roast pumpkin & feta salad, beef stroganoff and tonight’s meal of sweet potato & roast capsicum pizza.
I think it’s the stop to the snacking ie picking at food throughout the day. You know, when I’m bored, tired, stressed, sad, happy, angry…well name the emotion and it was a reason to snack. Now I have 2 planned snacks during the day and if I have the calories, a hot chocolate at night. You wouldn’t believe how ridiculously and deliriously happy I can be if I can have that hot choc! Last night I couldn’t .
Of course it doesn’t help when Mr CJ sits down with a plate of just-made hot buttered toast, mid-afternoon. Omg, I didn’t realise how good hot toast smells! Then he polished off the remainder of a packet snack mix from the pantry. He even offered me some. Yes, that’s the sharing and caring person he can be, not!
However I have stuck to my plan. I’m waiting for the day that my stomach has shrunk and doesn’t emit that ominous, very audible rumble between meals. Health experts say that many of us have forgotten what it’s like to experience true hunger given our constant and easily accessible supply of food. Trust me, I am we’ll acquainted with the feeling!
One more day and I will have completed week one of 12WBT. The exercise component hasn’t quite gone to plan this week but the food has been spot on.
