Day 2 – Progress Report.
Today was another easier than expected day. I was in an all day class with my wife. I remembered to bring my pistachio's, cheese sticks, and drinks.
More importantly, I started the day (despite having to get up at 5am and having to get us and the dogs and the kids ready) with 3 scrambled eggs. Those eggs and their protein are key, as they help with a feeling of fullness. These are important when doing the Phase 1 part of South Beach.
Ok, i'm hungry now but not too bad. My wife forgot to bring lunch so we stopped @ Walmart and she got Subway. Ya, the bread smelled good, and I expected my cravings to kick in to where I wanted to jump acros the counter — but that didn't happen. I was fine actually. Those carb cravings have been very tolerable so far – I'm really surprised.
Then home, salad, radishes, no dressing. And of course more mozerella cheese sticks – and some more nuts. I also ate the other half of the oven backed chicken. I cheat a teeny tiny bit with my barbeque sauce (has carbs) — but it's minimal and keeps me going.
I'm a little scared — this is going easier than I expected!
