I made it through day one. Barely. Breakfast and lunch went well, but by 3:00, I was wishing for bread and chocolate. We went to my parents house for dinner and to watch college football. My mom made me cream-free chicken chili and a delicious green salad, but it was really hard to watch everyone else eat cornbread and then have ice cream for dessert. I am realizing just how much I view food as a reward, as something that brings me happiness. And I was a little bit sad to not get any of the “yummies.” But I did it. I didn’t cave. I stuck to my plan and I’m feeling good about that!
Here’s what I ate:
Spinach, banana, orange, raspberry and pineapple smoothie
Mexican tuna wraps (tuna, Salsa Verde, cumin, and chili powder wrapped in lettuce)
Chicken Chili (white beans, chicken, green chilies, carrots, celery, and spices. No cream)
Green salad with cucumber/tomato and an avocado/lime dressing
hummus and cucumbers
I’m already halfway through day two and staying strong. But dreaming of cornbread.
