My Journey Back to Slim Day 4

Today I decided to design this plan around my own desires and needs. I don't really like breakfast and the coffee w/heavy cream will be enough unless I'm going to the gym around noon. I want to avoid getting too hungry before I get home after working out. Still haven't got that figured out, yet.

I also like to eat a light dinner, early. This worked out better since I was satisfied and not too full in the evening.

Breakfast: Coffee w/heavy cream
Lunch: Grilled steak

3:00 Snack: Radishes, cucumber

RM Dinner @5:30: Popcorn sprayed with Butter Spray, Large apple w/cheese slices,
1/2 large tomato. Didn't want anything else even though I
could have. Hmmm.

Exercise: Gardening

My Journey Back to Slim Day 3

No question about it. This is the right program for me. Today I didn't take my usual "cat nap" after a heavy load of carbs for lunch. In fact, I didn't even have lunch at all. Had planned to do a snack, but got busy and didn't. Usually I feel starved after a gym workout, but today I had breakfast about 10:15 and worked out at 12:00. Waited till 6:30 to eat with my DH. The scales are slowly shifting downward and my usually too-tight-jeans were almost comfortable today.

Pre-breakfast: coffee w/heavy cream

Breakfast: 2-egg omelet with green onion , mushrooms, sausage, cheese and
peppers

RM Dinner: salad, lamb steak, beets and beet greens, zuchinni with swiss
cheese, fruit salad. oreo cookies

Exercise: Regular gym work-out. Added some reps. Did balance exercise.
Otherwise same as Monday.

My Journey Back to Slim (Continued)

Don't feel like eating "junk" at all. Even when I'm hungry, I just have a glass of water and tell myself I need to wait for dinner. Think I would like to have a small snack at 3:00 tomorrow. Will see how it goes.

Breakfast: Coffee w/heavy cream
Lunch: Steak, cucumbers and radishes w/salad dressing as a dip, green beans.
RM Dinner: Large vegtable salad with a huge tomato picked right out of my
garden. Pork rinds w/sour cream. Homemade blackberry pie
filling w/plain yogurt. Red delicious apple off our tree with cheese.
Exercise: Gardening. Weather is great!
