Week 1, Day 1
Although I had every intention of waking up at 6:30 this morning (I did actually get up and get a glass of water but then went back to bed) I didn’t roll out of bed until about 9:40! Ekk. I am supposed to be “ramping up” my work time because I am taking on some extra gigs for some extra cash, but alas I am already behind.
First thing–I made coffee, my usual routine. Put coffee on, read emails, troll facebook, twitter, and read NYTimes online. I SHOULD always eat breakfast during this process, but so many days I just end up getting mesmerized by the computer, I forget about breakfast and the next thing I know its lunchtime. Well I didnt quite do that today. Around 11am I realized that I hadn’t eaten breakfast and I took a break and ate a bowl of Trader Joes Soy and Flax Clusters and Skim Milk–one cup of each. I am also trying to make sure that I take my vitamins everyday so I took a multivitamin, a bone strength pill, some oregano, a vitamin B complex, and two Ginkgo pills with my cereal and coffee.
Lunch 1:45 PM
Snack: busy afternoon didnt end up eating a snack
drank 1/2 of a bottle of Coke Zero
Trader Joe’s Chile Relleno–350 cals
Glass of Water
The Chile Relleno has 18g of fat and 11g of Saturated fat– which is A LOT, but somehow it only has 350 calories, it’s actually still really bad for you–this might have to become my naughty treat meal during this 6 weeks of 1200 cals.
Ok, off to the gym!
Finishing off the night with a (small) glass of red wine! and that’s my first day of 1200 calories!
