So today starts day 3 of the cabbage soup diet. I ended yesterday well. I had dinner and then I didn't snack at all before going to bed.
I weighed in this morning at 214.5. A loss of 4 pounds so far! :)
For dinner I had a bowl of soup followed by a side salad with lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, green onion, a bit of purple onion, and a light Newman's Own asian dressing (very tasty for only 35 calories). I had a baked potato with a little country crock and Mrs. Dash. I was super full after all of that. I drank more water yesterday and had lemon in my water.
So I stayed at about 1000 calories and felt fine. So far, no problems with the baby nursing or my milk supply.
Yesterday's goal was to do some kind of exercise. At 9:00pm I had not completed my goal yet. I couldn't get the bike in the house, so I put on my shoes, got my ipod and went for a WALK! I think I left at maybe 9:30 and got done at 10:13.
The first time around the block was easy and I even ran a little (well what I think is running may be more like dragging my feet and flopping up and down). The second time around the block was a little harder. Then by round 3 I was ready to give up... but then a song came on... don't feel like saying which Prince song it was... and I got my mojo back and kept walking. I went around for the 4th time and saw that I had only taken 3700 steps. So I kept going again for the 5th time around. I ended up stopping after that and I had taken almost 5000 steps. Good enough for my first time back out. I wanted to be able to do it again the next day, so I went inside.
I felt so good (and so sweaty) about walking. It brought back so many happy thoughts. Some of the songs reminded me of when I was on my last journey. I am looking forward to going again tonight!!! I wish I could go during the day but I'm not about to take 3 kids with me. I'm going to have to get out there earlier tonight because I couldn't sleep at all last night. My body was too awake and I tossed and turned!
So I'm glad I set a goal yesterday and I'm glad I blogged about it because I knew I would have to come back out here and update this and I sure didn't want to have to say I DIDN'T reach my goal.
So set yourself a goal today. Today my goal is 2 parts. 1. Drink 6-8 glasses or more of water! 2. Walk for 1 hour!
Until next time...
Oh and the cabbage soup- is making me a bit gassy! :P
