Day 1 ~Sarah

So, I wish I could lie and tell you I exercised, but I can't. And to be honest, I'm okay with it. I did pretty good with my food, but working out is going to take some time for me. Between my allergies acting up, sick kids, and a nursing baby...I'm just so tired! I know these are just excuses that will always be there, I'm going to allow my self to be too tired to workout for now, and am focusing on food choices. I'll add workouts when I feel like I can, and when I'm more confident in my ability to eat right.

I had a battle with the world's worst blender to make my smoothie in the morning, but it was yummy and made a lot after the extra coconut milk I had to add. I had the tuna and avocado for lunch. I didn't mind it at all. Probably has something to do with the fact that I was pretty hungry by then. I snacked on an apple and almond butter before dinner. Had the chicken and spinach and onion for dinner, and then snacked on apple and almond butter for dessert. I drank about 12 cups of water, and feel good about that.

I made one dinner last night. Everyone had what I had. My kids complain A LOT about what I give them for dinner, so I braced myself for some whinning. Not. A. Word! I was surprised! Everyone even ate the sauteed spinach!

Holdie had his fussiest day EVER. I'm assuming its coincidental, and doesn't actually have anything to do with my diet change (he may have allergies too), but I may decide to add one extra meal in the day. I don't want to starve that little dude.

So, on to Day 2! I'm pretty excited to try today's lunch. I'm going to have it on top of lettuce instead of wrapped in a leaf. I couldn't find any leaves big enough, plus I think the extra salad will help make me really full. 

Did everyone take a before pic? I forgot. I'm gonna go do that now...

  1. I thought of you when I was thinking I was too tired and it made think I really don't have any excuses! I think thats excellent that you are sticking to the eating plan, the exercise will come later. And i think its a good idea to add a meal or snack while nursing. I also forgot to take a before pic. I will have to do that before I workout this afternoon. Good job Sare!
