Plenity Day One
Monday, July 29, 2019
Today was my start day. Again. This time will be different. Again.
I decided I needed more than a food log this time, but a journal. Where better to journal my efforts than here?
I had so many thoughts throughout the day and when I sit down....writers block.
I did meal plan and prepped breakfast and lunches yesterday, so that's a good way to start.
I did Pure Barre on Demand to start my day, so I got my exercise in. Another good sign.
I put a blister pack in my purse, because what if I am not home when it's time to take my pills. Plus!
I filled my water bottles.
I thought I had prepared, but I still felt nervous. I watched the clock all day long so I wouldn't miss my first dose. Then I set the timer to make sure I began my lunch in 20-30 minutes. All of that anticipation, and nothing. I felt no different.
I knew there were no stimulants, but I expected to feel full. I didn't. I expected gusto-intenstinal upset. There wasn't any. Nothing different.
I know I ate less because I measured and weighed everyone.
I was mindful all day long not to eat the kids leftovers, snack between meals, or taste test while cooking dinner.
I am glad that I made it through the day (still have to get through the night and to bed) without snacking, but it wasn't easy. I hope tomorrow is easier.
