Ahhh Day 1. Probably going to be the most easiest day out of the challenge. Easy because my mind is focused and determined to pull this thing through. Woke up with a headache so I didn't take my sparks and other stuff right away...which I should of. But I got it done. The Sparks drink doesn't taste too bad at all. And the Fiber drink was ok as well. For Breakfast, I had a shake meal replacement.
On my way to work, I stopped by Subway to get a sandwich. While walking towards subway, there was a new restaurant I didn't notice before and the smell coming from it was just to DIE FOR !!! All I could think about at that moment was "Damn, I need to try this place out." But not until 24 days...shucks. But I got my Turkey Sandwich which will be my lunch and dinner.
After that, I headed to the store to get my some walnuts, almonds and blueberries. (Don't worry, I bought the unsalted and uncoated ones. Just plain ole nuts and berries) As I walked around, I saw my favorite snacks on sale. GRRRRR !!!! But I kept on walking and just bought what I needed. (But I totally forgot to get a carton of egg whites. Dammit)
This whole timing my meals thing is going to be something to get use to. The feeling is like waiting to get off work when you have like an hour left. Time is going by so slowly until it hits that last minute. THE TORTURE !!! But I know I will get use to it as the days go by.
Ahhh man...When lunch time came around...I DEVOURED that 6inch sandwich of mine. I should of ate it slowly but I was too hungry.(Keep in mind, I still had my snack of nuts and berries 2 hours prior) And now I have to wait another 2 hours to eat again...F*** !!! and of course I'm drinking my water.
So after taking my snack...I started to feel the hunger inside of me. While at work, I was watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 (AWESOME MOVIE BY THE WAY)...The intro had everybody eating pizza. ARRRRGGHHHH!!!! I WANT PIZZA !!!! That didn't help at all. But I stayed strong.
So for dinner, I just ate the other half of my footlong sandwich. I DEVOURED that thing also. I decided not to eat any small snack after and just take my pills before I go to bed.
This was my first day. Towards the end of the day, I knew this journey is going to be full of hunger and cravings. I will probably be irritable some days but thats probably going to be part of the process of changing my habits. Am I looking forward to this???? Yes and No. But I want to do this. I want to finish this goal and do my best to do it right.
