What a difference a couple days make! I’m feeling good this morning. I had pancaked early on and oatmeal not too long ago.
My friend, Chris, who has TSFL in the past recommended getting in 50 ounces by noon. That’s a great tip. I’m all about short term goals. I’m just about there, now. I’ve noticed it’s easier to keep up the water at work than at home. I guess that’s because I’d rather not be focused on what I’m working on. Also, I work at standup desk, so it’s easy to grab a quick glass of water.
A big test today
We’ve got a team lunch today. Obviously, I can’t partake. Generally, we like to eat greasy fatty foods that won’t jive with what I’m trying to accomplish. I’ll drink a shake before and after and suck it up.
I’ve only been on the diet for two days. I’ve jumped on the scale both days and I’m liking what I’m seeing. I’m not getting too excited yet, but I’ve lost 3.5 pounds already. I weighed myself in the same clothes and at the same time in the morning.
The hardest part
So far the hardest part was the headaches and the lack of energy. I haven’t felt much a headache today and I’ve not felt lethargic at all. I miss a few things, but when I see the scale the next morning, I’m glad I held off and resisted.
I don’t know if it’s coincidence but my sense of smell has been enhanced 10x. It’s the worst. I could smell eggs, bacon, peppers and onions. My stomach is growling just thinking about it. I guess that’s the disadvantage of working next to the Broken Yolk.
I can’t wait for my clothes to fit better and to be able to run/workout with more ease. It’s really just a matter of time. I think I’m through the hardest part, honestly.
