Clean Eating Day 4

Day four has been the roughest day so far. I think I am just throwing myself a little pity party because not being able to eat the foods I want is hard and no fun!

I realized today how crucial herbs and spices are to being able to stick to any healthy eating plan. Food has to have flavor and if I can't use sugar and fat, then I've got to use spices.

The good news is that I was not as ravenous today. I suspect my body is adjusting to the new calorie count and that my stomach is probably shrinking a little.

The bad news is that I realized today there is no way that I will be doing this permanently. I am going to hold out strong for the seven days I committed to, but I have realized that I don't want to do this for the rest of my life. I like food! I like making a delicious meal for my family and sitting down to eat it with them. I like having treats at the movies. I would rather run a marathon and be able to eat a brownie than limit what foods I am able to eat. I've just got to learn some moderation. Isn't that always the answer? Moderation. I think I'll give it a try.

One last lesson I learned today... cabbage gives me gas. Bad gas. That whole big batch of soup I made? If I ate it, I would have to go live alone somewhere, because no one would want to be around me. :)

Here's what I ate today:

* Orange, banana, peach smoothie
* Homemade salsa and cucumbers
* Pear
* Zucchini, mushroom, chicken sautee
* Quinoa, chicken and frozen stir-fry vegetables
* Watermelon
