Today in order to keep myself accountable, I took pictures of all of my food for you all to see. I followed the diet plan as closely as I possibly could, but working in retail doesn't always allow me to leave my post every 3 hours to eat. I also had to rearrange some carbs, so I didn't break the no starches after 7:00 PM rule. I was actually quite surprised, but I didn't feel deprived of food today at all. Even when a lovely pizza showed up at work!
I did, however, choke down some foods I don't like. I am a huge hater of eggs. I cannot eat real ones at all; I prefer the liquid ones, but even those are gross to me. Two of my meals on the trainer consist of egg whites, so I have to get them in somehow. If I could change anything about my diet, the eggs would be it, but what can you do when it's a super food!
Here are my eats for the day in comparison to the diet laid out for phase 1:
5 egg whites
Greek yogurt or Protein shake or Protein bar
Same as mid-morning
5-6 egg whites
No exercise for me today. I decided to stick to the trainer and make it a rest day. One thing about this diet that I cannot stress enough is to PLAN!!! This is what I took to work with me today in order to fit in all of my meals, since I worked 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM and didn't wake up this morning until 9:00 AM.
