Summary from Day 1 – down 2 pounds! I woke up this morning, hopped on the scale, and just smiled. Thank god Atlanta didn’t get the better of me. I’m almost down all the weight I gained… Yeah for me!

Today is Day 2 – all veggies and a potato for breakfast. So after making my coffee, I cleaned a potato and stuck it in the oven. An hour later, I had a potato with 2 pats of butter and a bit of salt and pepper. It was delicious. I felt full, but not too full until late afternoon. For dinner I made myself some baked eggplant with homemade chunky tomato sauce and a big salad. I cheated and added some cheese to the eggplant and I think that was a mistake. About 30 minutes after eating, I got really bloated and my stomach hurt for about an hour.. the same feeling I get all the time. I’m wondering if I’m allergic to cheese? I’m going to eat the rest of the eggplant minus the cheese tomorrow and see how I feel. If I don’t feel bad, then I’ll know that I don’t feel good when I eat cheese. It would be an absolute bummer because I LOVE cheese.
I went for a run today – the first one in a month. I was slower than usual but it felt so good. The weather was perfect – it was warm out, there was a slight breeze, the sky was clear and blue.. the sun on my skin felt glorious. I feel so much better when I exercise I don’t know why I don’t “just do it” when things get busy/crazy…. seems backwards.
I ran errands tonight after dinner so I wouldn’t be tempted to relax with a glass of wine. It worked… and now I’m home, blogging, and getting ready for bed.
Tomorrow, Day 3, I can have both fruits and veggies except bananas and potatoes. I’m looking forward to my berry shakes, more mango (yum!), and the grapes I just received in my organic care package from Farm Fresh To You. It came at the perfect time as it contains a bunch of grapes, two containers of heirloom tomatoes, an eggplant, some broccoli and lettuce. I used the eggplant and a few of the heirloom tomatoes for dinner tonight… I’ll use the tomatoes with my beef on Days 5 & 6, and the broccoli for a stir fry on days 6 & 7… Yum!
Alright, I’m tired.. off to bed I go. Have a great Wednesday everyone.
