Yesterday was the first day of my Induction Phase after having read Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution.
I'm still dealing with the fact that my vacation cost me 8 lbs. I don't know how 8 lbs happens in 12 days when I stayed away from bread. I'm sure I really do know how it happened, but it's time to move on. I hadn't read the book, and I wasn't 100% on board like I am today.
Sticking with the plan on day one was pretty easy because I had planned the menu ahead, although I will admit my coffee is not decaffeinated. I will have to see if that makes much impact. For now I really don't want the headache that going cold turkey off caffeine gives me.
2 cups of coffee with 3 T cream and 2 packs of splenda (total)
2 eggs over easy cooked in 1 T olive oil
3 strips thick bacon
2 large romaine lettuce leaves
1 T olive oil
Kale chips cooked in 1 tsp olive oil
Chocolate (decaf) tea
3 oz diet cranberry (the kind with splenda in it) mixed with 9 oz sparkling water
6 oz Chopped Steak
Total Water = 6 glasses (short of the 8)
I didn't complete a workout. I spent the time doing housework and laundry instead. By skipping happy hour I had more energy and worked later into the evening.
I didn't get enough sleep because we stayed up to watch the mermaid special on the Discovery channel. I'm up at 4 am writing this post and getting ready for boot camp.
