Phase One, Day One -
I started typing this last night but I got distracted by the kids before I finished. I feel good about yesterday. I was really glad that I had grabbed some decent p1 snacks at the store because we were stuck in traffic for about 45 minutes after shopping and I was starving! I didn't have any cravings so that was good. We've been incorporating p1 meals into our menus for a couple weeks as we used up non-p1 foods so I feel like I'm starting out with an advantage. It was hard not to eat the cheesecake in the fridge but that was an emotional reaction. I had a rough day with the kids and my husband was sick and slept from the time he got home until it was time for the kids to go to sleep. Then my 2 year old was having a hard time falling to sleep. Even after I gave in and let her snuggle in my bed it was after 10 before she drifted off. I probably had a whole 15 kid-free minutes before I went to bed. I was stressed yesterday and was losing my cool with the kids way too much. That didn't have anything to do with what I ate but it makes me feel GREAT about not eating that cheesecake. Instead I grabbed a diet soda and watched American Idol on my dvr
I'd really like to eliminate diet soda from my diet but baby steps....
So here's my day one food list.
3 egg omlete w/ cheddar cheese and bacon (I know bacon isn't a p1 food but I had a bunch in the fridge that I can't just toss, trimmed of fat and baked), shared with kids
1/2 cup tomatoes, not shared
celery with blue cheese spread and hot sauce
Lunch (sort of...we were stuck in traffic through lunch time so I dug a couple things out of the grocery bags)
Salami stick, small
Nuts, small handful
V8, 11.5 oz can
Salad of 3-4 cups mixed greens, 2/3 cup grape tomatoes, 1/4 cup sliced black olives, 1 tbsp feta cheese, 2 tbsp dressing (1 gr carbs), 2 small spicy sausage links
