So Far So Good

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!

It’s Day 3 of my Attack Phase on the Dukan Diet & I am feeling great! I’ve lost some weight, but I know it’s just water weight right now. My body feels better, though. I’m not bloated at all and I just feel good.

A nice thing about this diet is that I don’t feel like I am starving myself. These pure proteins really fill you up and there are no calorie restrictions. I’m excited to be able to start eating veggies again soon though because I love them soo much! I know that not incorporating main food groups into your diet is frowned upon, but this is very temporary and I will be adding them back into my diet soon.

I do have to say that Day 2 was tough for me. I woke up and started making breakfast: 3 egg whites, 1 yolk, and 2 slices of lean turkey bacon. I wasn’t even that hungry, but I knew I needed to eat. While I was cooking, the thought of putting more protein into my body was making me sick. I had to lay down for a few minutes. It blew my mind how much I was sick of protein already and it was only day 2!! But that feeling passed and I was fine the rest of the day!

For lunch I tried to be a little more creative. There are 72 pure proteins that you are allowed to eat during this phase, but I feel like it’s very hard to get creative.

I tried making somewhat of a smoothie bowl!

I blended together 1 cup of Greek yogurt, about a 1/2 cup of skim milk, 1 1/2 tablespoons of oat bran, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, a decent amount of splenda (I didn’t measure, just added until the sweetness was right), and icecubes!

Now this was definitely NOT the best smoothie I’ve ever had, but it was better than eating more chicken or eggs!

I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things for my family. That was hard! All I wanted to do was pick up a bag or tortilla chips and salsa and dig in! The bananas were also looking wonderful! Who am I kidding, everything looked good to me!

But I know that I cannot break this diet. This is something that I really want and I would be so disappointed in myself if I lost discipline.

When I got home, my dad was back and he had a surprise for me!

Trout!!!!

He knows that I’m on this diet, so he went fishing and caught some yummy trout that I can cook up! I love fish a lot, so I was extremely happy. I actually had a piece this morning for breakfast! It was delicious! Thanks Dad 🙂

I’m not sure what I’m going to do today. The past few days have been super boring. The weather has been horrible – gloomy and rain. 😦 I can’t wait until it is nice out so I can be outside and start working again!!!

My brother will be living back at home for the next couple of days. He’s having surgery today. Nothing life-threatening, but send your prayers his way!!

Hope everyone has a great day! It’s almost the weekend 🙂

Watery Wednesday

Ah, today has been a pretty decent day! I woke up this morning around 6:15 am and the sun was rising and shining bright! But unfortunately this was not the case as the day went along 😦 As soon as I was done with my classes around 12:30 pm, it was rainy, cold, and dreary.

But the weather has not put a damper on my day! I went to the gym directly after class and had a pretty good workout! I did a total of 40 minutes of cardio on the precor 100i elliptical machine. (I definitely recommend trying one out!) My workout was as follows:

1-5 minutes at resistance 10

5-20 minutes at resistance 14

20-30 minutes at resistance 12

30-35 minutes at resistance 10

35-40 minutes at resistance 8

Overall I burned a total of 484 calories and traveled 4.29 miles!

After my workout I went home and ate some yummy lunch! I had some left overs from last night’s dinner.

I made this hamburger helper-esque meal using just 4 ingredients: ground venison, whole wheat spiral pasta, cheesy taco seasoning, and some italian garden spaghetti sauce. I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but it was certainly yummy!

My roommate, Laura, and I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip to WallyWorld tonight! (This is our nickname for WalMart.. we love that place a little too much haha) I was running low on food so I just needed to pick up a few things for the next week or so.

I spent $14.21 and got all of this! (I’m a bargain shopper hehe) I can’t wait to make some panini’s with my feta cheese and turkey! And I already dug into the tortilla chips and salsa which turned out to be my dinner =P Healthy… haha

I’m still trying to fix my blog and make it “me”. I’ve been trying different themes and layouts so my blog has been kinda messy. But I promise it will be right where I want it sometime soon!

Funny thing happened today. I texted my roommate, Laura, telling her how I started a blog in January and then never followed through with it until a couple days ago. She replied that she did the EXACT same thing! (I swear we are twins) So check her blog out: TheCarbivore! She has a really cool post coming up about our spring break vacation!

Time for some tv, facebooking, and eventually bed! Nighty night! 🙂
