Last week was a little bit of success mixed in with a little bit of failure. I didn't lose any weight, but I didn't gain any either. I stayed mostly on my diet, but then I drank a few times & fell under the very real temptation of Tony Roma's rolls with herb butter (I failed that test). I didn't exercise all week, which was a major fail. But I had really, really healthy & good food all week (see above).
Combine my frustration of not really seeing many results, and C's frustration of not getting to eat any meat (plus a frustrated wife - which in itself will make any husband frustrated), and the result was 2 unhappy people on Sunday.
So, C sat me down and told me I needed to simplify things. Instead of the "modified Vegan" rules that I sort of made up as I went, he suggested I just go with a simple, easy plan. Like Slim Fast or Special K. So, since I like Special K way more than Slim Fast, that's what I went with.
It's super simple. Eat cereal for breakfast. Drink the protein shake at lunch. Have one Special K snack around 3-ish. And then eat a well-balanced dinner (last night was chicken, rice & zucchini). I throw a piece of fruit into the 10 am spot, when I'm usually starving, and I'm done! Nothing really to think about.
Plus I made a promise to myself that I'd exercise at least 3 times this week. So far, I've done 1 day. But we're only on day 2 of the week, so I think I'm doing fine.
So we'll have to see how this works. I'm trying out the Special K diet for 2 weeks. That'll take me to end of week 6 of the total 10 weeks I've set out to really try to loose weight.
This Sunday marks the half-way mark. Hopefully I'll start seeing more, real changes soon.
Staying strong ♥
