So here we are on day 1. I finally caved and decided for myself that I was ready to embark on a diet. My morning typically would start out with a grande iced mocha from Starbucks and around 10ish I would have a granola bar or nutra grain bar. Today I did stop at Starbucks (I will eventually not stop but I decided that I needed to gradually reduce my caffeine so that I don't get a massive migraine from no caffeine) but I ordered a tall iced fat free, no whip mocha :( boring!!! Then once at work at 10 I had my first Slim Fast of the day. Now I have had Slim Fast before and was well aware of the nasty after taste that it has, but I am proud to say that I can get this can down in three swallows! I take one big swallow, a big drink of water and continue in this manner until I finish the can.
Lunch time was another can of Slim Fast and a rice cake. This surprisingly filled me up. Until the afternoon came and at 2:30 I got a bit hungry so I had a small container of applesauce. This held me over until 3:30 when I ate another rice cake. The afternoon is the worst time for me, I feel like I am always hungry, it probably has something to with the fact that the afternoon at work tends to drag for me so I am focusing in on my lack of eating. In the afternoon would be the time that I would tend to snack the most.
For dinner tonight I had a Lean Cuisine Chicken Club panini and a salad with spinach, eggs, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, snap peas, broccoli, and cheese. This kept me full for a whole 20 minutes. Luckily we ate around 6:15ish, and then I decided to read a magazine and shower. Which it is now 8 and I am eating a Smart Ones Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sundae. Yum! The best part of the day so far.
I suppose now that I have told you what I all ate today I should explain my reasoning for this sudden diet. You see in 150 days (hence the title of the post) I am going to go to Hungary for a wedding. I want to feel and look good, which most of the time I don't feel now. I am going to work really hard to get into shape and eating better too. It helps right now too that one of my co-workers is also dieting so she knows just how tough this can all be.
My goal is to lose 50 lbs in those 150 days. I know that sounds like a lot but I think that I can do it. Each day I will blog and let you all know how things are going and on each Monday I will reveal how much weight that I have lost.
Tomorrow I am going to sign up for a gym membership and then I will be really on the road to happiness and thinness!
I am off now to finish my sundae and hopefully not dream about food tonight!
