ChaLean Extreme - Week 2 - Sunday

Weigh in day. 145.5, so I lost 2 of the pounds I gained last week. This has me in a bit of a panic. I want to start cutting things out of my diet, but I know if I start cutting stuff, that will lead to a binge. I definitely don't want that. So I'm not going to change anything just yet. Well, I know that I need to work on getting more vegetables and fewer starches. That's always a problem I have. The Splenda is still a problem, and now I'm wondering about sodium. This is just too overwhelming. I have to keep telling myself to take it slowly. My priority now is preventing binges. And continuing my workouts.

6:45 AM - cottage cheese on toast, coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda

10:00 AM - coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda, turkey bacon, scrambled eggs w/ onion, garlic, green pepper & salsa

1:15 PM - chicken breast & broccoli w/ light balsamic vinaigrette dressing

2:50 PM - Cheerios w/ skim milk

4:40 PM - grilled steak w/ mixed vegetables, coffee w/ half-and-half & Splenda

8:00 PM - almonds

I'm there with you. I think this is going to be a slow process for me because I know myself too well...I'll get burned out and then I'll give up. Not happening this time. :)

Did you buy any Banana Nut Cheerios yet?

I didn't buy them yet. I am going grocery shopping tomorrow and I will pick up a box.

Oooh! They are DELICIOUS! You won't regret it. Let me know what you think...

I don't think you should look at cutting stuff out of your diet...especially if you don't feel 'ready' to do that yet. Maybe focus on ADDING stuff..kind of like you said eating more veggies and fruits. Maybe if you focus on eating MORE of that stuff it won't feel like you're depriving yourself of the other stuff.

I feel like I'm almost eating too much. I think I need to substitute some things. I'm actually talking about it in today's blog.
