Tonight I made and ate turkey burgers for the first time! I cooked them up with fresh sliced mushrooms and onions, put a pinch of ff parm cheese on top with a little side of low carb ketchup for dipping and if I didnt know they were turkey burgers I would have never known! The thought was the hardest thing to get use to-I dont know why, but on top of that my 5yr old son had no idea that he had eaten a turkey burger!
Yesterday I actually had made a daily log on microsoft word yesterday which includes check off boxes for my a.m. hot water with lemon, each meal with choice and snacks-which also includes 2 places to get my fruit in before 2pm, my 2 probiotic, my green teas with each meal and 8 boxes at the bottom to check off for my 8-8oz glasses of water. I printed of 17 of these for cycle 1 and stapled them together which I can see keeps me looking forward to the next day and before long looking for that last page! Im a list making kinda gal so I really like this-I feel like it keeps me on track to get to check of each thing on my log :-) Still happy to say I maintained a full feeling all day, It seems to be perfect timing as to when I start to feel a little bit of hunger approaching only to look and see its time for a snack! I havent felt starving at any point in the last two day but I can see my biggest fight is the craving to have dessert after supper!!-Although I will say I feel so healthy with the foods Ive eaten in just the last two days that I can honestly say having a yogurt for dessert would totally satisfy me! (maybe in a later cycle..speaking of which I think its time to read on-give me something more to look forward to!) Im still a little frazzled on the whole yogurt thing-I posted this question but no responses yet. I eat the yoplait light fat free yougurts-as a matter of fact I LOVE them, although noticing the sugar can be anywhere from 14g to 20g was a bit concerning. So I referred back to the book thinking I wouldnt have made such a crticial error having read the chapters on cycle 1 a couple times-and sure enough pg 45 says "Yogurt, any type, including..." and goes on to list several types of yogurt. I found a thread where one person said she eats both yoplait regular and light and she was doing great-where others said no, I just dont want to sabotage my diet right from the get go and really hope that I can get confirmation on this as I really love these yogurts! The different flavors are great, although if I have to find an alternative I should be ok-this morning I had just a vanilla one with a cup of fresh blueberries-insanely good!
Not to end the night on a bad note cause I feel so good and tired, but I didnt make it to my treadmill today as planned :-( Tomorrow Im going to make time for it instead of trying to find the time for it! Oh yeah and I decided prior to start this diet, to weigh myself weekly-I think daily is too often and Id rather see a few pounds off after a week rather then half a pound or less each day, I know in the end its a wash but I think weekly also gives me something to look forward to each week. My first weigh in will be 1 wk from the check of my starting weight (the day before I started this diet)-so this Sunday! (which I will be sure to do BEFORE the super bowl, that way to keep fresh in my mind the progress I have made that I dont want to lose over some half time snack!
