Today was my official start date of dieting and exercising. My diet is high protein and low carbs. I absolutely LOVE carbs so it’s going to be a little tough in the beginning. I snack throughout the day to make sure I always have protein in my body so I will be eating 5-6 times a day. As apart of my snack or meal replacement, I went to the Vitamin Shoppe to buy Super Pro which is a protein powder along with Acai Cleanse and Detox to rid my body of extra water and toxins. I also take a supplement to help suppress my appetite and boost my metabolism. On top of that, I drink 1 gallon of water throughout the day.
*All meals below were accompanied with water*
2 Boiled Eggs
2 Scrambled Egg Whites
Grilled Chicken Breast
Low Fat Cottage Cheese
It was a little hard getting through the day today since I’m not used to eating very healthy and eating smaller portions. All day I felt like I was going through withdrawal that’s similar to quitting smoking, alcohol, etc. except my withdrawal was from food. I know it’ll take some time to used to.
My new workout plan lasts at least an hour. I haven’t done any type of exercise in a very long time so today’s workout was exhausting. It amazes me how out of shape I am. Not to mention it amazes me even more that I weighed a lot more than I thought when I weighed myself first thing this morning. I’ll be weighing myself in one week to see how much weight I’ve lost. I will probably be very sore the next few days but I’ll be ready and I will keep on going until I meet my goal. I just need to remember to take on one pound at a time.
Day 1 down, 364 days left to go…BRING IT!
