Day 5

Today the main goal is to drink more water.  I have been averaging about 6 8oz. glasses a day but the goal is to get to 12 8oz. glasses a day.  I’m not sure that I’ll ever get to that much but I will try.  Also today we’re to begin tracking our water intake, avoid alcohol for the next 16 days (don’t really drink anyway), and stay away from the scale which will be very difficult for me because I weigh myself every morning to help me stay on track. 

6:20 a.m.- 1 piece of toast with peanut butter

8:15 a.m.- 1 egg, 1 egg white omelet with spinach, green onion, green pepper, ham and cheese and 1 piece of toast with butter

I missed my snack this morning because Eli and I went to the store.  :(  So it ended up being almost 4 hours in between eating, which is definitely not a good thing on this program. 

12:00- Few bites of leftover grilled chicken breast and a full serving of leftover green beans (the chicken was dry), I also had Eli's leftover half of a Fruit by the Foot and then I had a small piece of beef jerky to try and make up for the missing protein

It's almost 1 p.m. now and i'm hungry.  I've been drinking water and will try drinking some more to see if that curbs my hunger, if not then i'm going to go ahead and eat something else.  I think this should be okay since I missed my snack this morning, but i'll try really hard to plan better next time so I don't get this hungry again. 

I've also noticed that since I haven't been eating junk (i.e. chocolate, candy) that i'm starting to really want it.  I used to eat this stuff everyday, at least one piece, so i'm trying to suck it up and overcome the cravings.  I did buy some strawberries, an angel food cake ring and some sugar free Cool Whip today so i'll have a strawberry shortcake soon and hopefully that will curb my sweet tooth.

1:00 p.m.- Strawberry Pastry Crisp packet (100 calories)

I had an airhead at some point while cleaning out  my purse because I found it in there. 

3:20ish- Bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal with Almond Milk (I was starving and this was the perfect snack with 9g of protein per 1 cup serving)

6:30 p.m.- We had dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings and I got the Ultimate Nachos.  It included chips, cheese, chili/meat mixture, lettuce, pico de gallo, salsa, and sour cream.  I did drink water with my meal. 

9:00 p.m.- a small bowl of vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup

I think missing that morning snack set me on the path to derailment for the rest of the day.  I was really hungry alot during the day and ended up eating the Airhead and the Strawberry Pastry Crisp packet when I shouldn't have.  Once you get used to eating every 2-3 hours, missing even once, for me anyway, is not a good idea and now I know why.
