Wednesday April 6th... 5 full days in

5 days. FIVE. DAYS.

Wow, it really does seem like more. So here is a summary= 4 days of awesomeness on the diet, 1 meal of cheats. Not bad. Not good, but in the grand scheme of things it is ok.

What I NEED to do... exercize. I have been lightly exercising but I really need to work at it. I have been very busy with my photos lately (which I am so thankful for) but I have totally neglected my push to work out more. I think I am kinda sorta have been using that as an excuse to not really work out.

That is going to change tomorrow. Tomorrow I am going to do something for 30 minutes. SOMETHING. I think that is the only way I will be able to 'kick off' exercising. I can't be too defining. I just need to do it. I hope to bike ride but we shall see. I WILL DO SOMETHING. (If I write it often will it happen?)

Breakfast - omlet - eggs, mushrooms, havarti, onions

snack - roasted chickpeas

lunch - turkey, tomato slices with moz.

snack - roasted chickpeas

dinner - spinach salad with olive oil.

I did weight today and I am down 1 1/2 lbs. Now if I could get moving more! Tomorrow. Is the day!

Day 2 recap

I would categorize yesterday as semi-epic-fail. I gave into pressure. I didn't eat for a LONG time. I just did wrong.

I woke up later than planned. (not late, just later than planned)

So I had to wait an hour after taking my normal medication to eat. Well, I had a sports photo shoot. So I dropped Fia off with my parents while Jack and I headed to the shoot. I do not think Jack is ready to be my tag along. Well, at least not when the team I am shooting are his age GIRLS :) The shoot was awesome. I love girls who are naturally ready to pose for team and individuals.  Anyhow back to food. So by the time we get Sophia, run home change cloths for her Instructional Soccer and get back to the soccer fields. Yea, um it was lunch time.

After Fi's game she was off with her grandparents we headed to the grocery store. We were getting water and stuff for the movies. (Yes, judge if you will, we took water and a box of candies to the theater. We DID get food from the snack bar so I did 'support' the theater :)

So finally when we got home I ate:

Lunch: Chicken wrap. Better known as a bit of  chicken inside a leafy piece o' lettuce. :() Not very creative but it worked.

Dinner: I gave in and had horribly, non South Beach food. I had chili, cheese fries and a burger. I did not eat most of the bun on the burger. But still.

During the Movie, after dinner snack: Dr. Pepper -  I have such a hard time with this tempation. I really do. Roasted chickpeas. I am so getting that recipe because they were awesome!

So. Where do I go from here? I could keep failing or I could just admit to my failure. I could make excuses, it was my first ever drive in experience. We needed to support the theater with concessions. Blah, Blah. But I am not. I am also not going to start over my day counter. I am just moving on from here. I know that when I stop the phase or South Beach diet title I will eat not so good food sometimes. So it is what it is.

On the other hand. Drive In Theater = Totally Awesome-est Movie Experience Ever!


Breakfast - None <- what is wrong with me?

Lunch - hummus, ham, celery, cucumber

snack - carrots (I know you aren't really suppose to but I don't consider it cheating!)

Dinner - hummus wrapped with turkey

Day 1- happened?

I could start with excuses. Today we had to get the car registration taken care of. We had to close one bank account and open a new one thanks to some jerk living in Frisco who really wants not very nice magazines. Thanks dude for taking our account number. That we had to hurry back to school so Scott could cook hamburgers for the teachers.

BUT. I am not. So.

Breakfast: None.

Snack: pickle and hot dog without bun, a few veggie straws. not so good but better than the other choices and I HAD to eat lunch with my niece. I did however not eat with Jack but just sat with him.

Lunch: Bunless burger with 1/4 cup onion, 1/4th of an avocado and tsp of mustard. unsweet tea.

Snack: Salad, romaine lettuce, 5 cherry tomatoes, 1/2 a cucumber, 5 olives, 1 tbsp of feta, 1 tsp of olive oil.
Crystal Light Wild Strawberry drink 8 oz.

20 oz water

Dinner: Chicken lettuce wrap. 20 oz water

20 oz water.

So needless to say I have to work on some stuff. I need to eat more healthy meals a day and not skip breakfast.

Exercise -  walking for 20 minutes, 20 minutes of house cleaning (bend down pick up one toy, put toy away, rinse, repeat)
