I've been wanting to start my journal here for a while, so I guess there's no time like the present, right?
One of the reasons that I haven't is because I have a regular online blog that I contribute to several times a week. Every Tuesday, I talk about South Beach, how I'm doing, and posting Beachy recipes. If you'd like to check that out, you can find it HERE
I seem to be tossing around the same four pounds since week 2 of Phase 1, despite being VERY faithful with eating, exercise, and water. I'm not asking for much, but I'd like to see a gentle trend downward to the tune of about a pound/week.
I track my food on Spark People and I'm averaging about 1400 calories/day. I'm always under on their suggested carbs, average on fat and protein. I also try very hard to keep my fiber grams at least 25 per day.
Here's what I ate yesterday:
B: coffee with non fat half and half, 2oz roasted turkey breast, 6oz tomato juice
L: 1.5C green beans, 1C cauliflower puree, 5oz albacore tuna w/ 1T mayonaise
S: 1/3 C all bran cereal with a bit of skim milk and Splenda, part skim cheese stick
D: 1.5C split pea soup, caesar salad
S: handful of virginia roasted peanuts
Today so far:
B: coffee with non fat half and half, small banana w/ 2T almond butter, 6oz tomato juice
Thanks for checking in on me!
