Day 8

8:00 Alarm, Awake

8:15 Up and at em!

8:45 Breakfast. Coffee, chili, spinach, water. Once again, I didn’t prep anything on Sunday. I’m trying to get a good breakfast in this morning, because I’m going to a friend’s place later. I know she is making turkey burgers, but I’m not sure what I’ll be looking at in terms of veggies. I may eat a small salad before I go, and just be careful while I’m there. I know there are going to be cocktails as well, so I’ll need to limit that.


1:48 Bowl of spinach. Figured I might as well have some now before I go to this cocktail thing. I know the host is having some healthier foods which is awesome, but I figure better safe than sorry.

3:15 Had some chicken wing dip made with low fat cream cheese and low fat mozzarella, with a few tortilla chips.  This was absolutely a cheat, and I knew that going in to it.  Regardless, it tasted awesome.  I also had a glass of merlot.  After, I snacked on some veggies (pepper slices, carrots, a radish, and some cauliflower.)

4:37 Had 2 turkey burgers with some Franks Red Hot on them, and some raw spinach.

Later evening I had some more veggies, a few pieces of apple, pear, and banana and another glass of merlot.  I also had a cup of coffee.

Today was not good.  I slipped up quite a bit, and actually felt pretty bad about it.  In addition, I don’t feel as though I ate enough, or rather I ate the wrong things.  I want to stick as closely to the plan as possible for the next week so that I can really track my progress.

  1. Congrats on getting your breakfast in first thing, though. That’s really hard for me to do sooner than 90 minutes of waking up for some reason. Cooking eggs also takes a while – you have to constantly watch them. I’ve made some small “cheats” this week, too, with fruit and yogourt (at least they aren’t horribly bad foods). I figure it’s best to do what I can and stick with it though, than overly stress and get sick of it.

      Yeah. you’re right. I love fruit, to the point where I can easily kill 2 watermelons a week during the summer. I’m trying to go as straight edge as I can for a couple weeks, then start making much more health conscious decisions on a daily basis.
