Before I begin this entry I would like to thank every one for well wishes and condolences. Though I have gotten to a point where I am emotionally ok, Lil Bit has not quite gotten there. I am literally pulling patience and tolerance from every place I can in helping her work through her little grieving process.
My co worker had hipped me to this semi liquid diet plan. The reason why I say semi liquid is because I actually do eat two 250 cal meals per day in addition to protein shakes. I basically consume a shake every hour and at the times I am supposed to eat, I stop and eat. So far so good considering my last meal is between 5 and 6 PM I am not hungry.
Today I called myself trying to purchase pre made salads in order to take the stress off of me having to measure, weigh etc; and what do you know?? I skimmed over the nutritional value label and ate 2 more servings than what I should have. *sigh* I should have taken a closer look...reading is really fundamental.
Anyway I am not to worried about it as the original plan requires 7, 100 calorie shakes a day in addition to the two meals... a sista can't do 7, I can only drink 5 maybe 6 so I had some extra calories to play around with.
I will be back with updates as I continue with this. In the mean time I will tell you that day one was hard eating every hour on the hour (an hour goes by fast) by the time I made it to my last meal I seriously had the itis and wanted a nice warm bed to fall asleep in. Today (Day 2) was difficult in the sense that I had things to do during the early part of the day, so running around in the snow and having to remember to drink my shakes when I should was a tad bit difficult. I may have to leave some packets and water in the car for when I am out and about.
Anyway...right now I am teetering between going back to the gym or getting a Wii Fit. Decisions, decisions, decision...
