… to the bathroom, that is. 😉
Today marks the official start of my journey on the SlimGenics diet. I have upped my water consumption (I must say I LOVE the thermo-boost packs that I mix with my water!!) and as a result, I have spent a large part of the day running to the bathroom. Ha!
I will admit that I’m hungry today, which I fully expected. There are many foods that I’ll be able to eat on this diet, but not yet. Very minimal for these first 3 “prep days”. To be fair, I can have unlimited green veggies and meats, but I haven’t eaten all that much (no veggie snacks this afternoon) because I’ve been busy, so that obviously plays into being hungry. Tomorrow when I go back to work, I plan to bring more food and to set alarms on my computer to remind me to eat snacks. If I can eat more food and curb the hunger, why wouldn’t I?
I had two hard-boiled eggs for breakfast; half an orange mid-morning; steak, green beans, snow pea pods and green peppers for lunch; the other half of the orange mid-afternoon; and I’ll be having grilled chicken and salad for dinner (and I consumed about 96 ounces of water today!).
All in all, I think it’s been a pretty good first day. I was a little worried about all the omega vitamins that I would be taking, because some of them make you burp up a fishy taste. YUCK!! These, luckily, do not. Phew.
Oh, and I got on the scale first thing this morning and I weighed EXACTLY (to the ounce) what I weighed at the SlimGenics office last Friday. I found that to be comforting, considering I ate a lot of fatty food over the weekend. Of course, I’m sure I gained, as I was wearing clothes when I weighed in at the SlimGenics office. 😉
I’ve made it through Day 1! Only 279 more to go!
