Woke up this morning READY for breakfast! Day 3, hump day. Still feeling great despite a bit of muscle soreness. I’m ok with it though. It’s “good” pain.

8:00am – Breakfast – 8oz lowfat cottage cheese and 2 pineapple rings. I didn’t think that would really fill me up, but a whole cup of cottage cheese is actually quite a lot. And I do believe my body is getting used to smaller portions again. The dinner I had last night seemed like a ton of food!

9:00am – Back to bed for the rest of my 8 hours of sleep. Such a wonderful luxury! Have I mentioned how much I love working from home as an Independent Team Beachbody Coach?

2:00pm – First snack, after being up for about an hour talking to people online. 1 zucchini and 3 small carrots (the plan called for 1 large so I improvised) with 2Tbs. fat-free dressing. I chose Italian because I decided not to buy Ranch since I haven’t really found a fat-free version that I like. My friend who’s doing this with me made her own.

4:15pm – I was busy getting Shakeology samples ready to send out and before I knew it, it was almost time to take the kids to karate. There was no way I would have had time to make the baked potato that was planned for lunch and get to eat it so I decided to have my second snack before we left. Greenberry Shakeology made with 1c. skim milk, 1/2 fresh strawberries (frozen would work just fine, too) and 3 ice cubes. It was pretty good, but I have to admit I will always be partial to Chocolate. I’m really curious and excited to see what the new flavor will be when it comes out this summer!

6:30pm – As soon as we returned from karate I started some quinoa using a method I found on this site. About 15 minutes before it was done I cooked chicken tenderloins in a large skillet with just a quick spray of Pam and some kosher salt. Then I cubed/shredded the chicken into small pieces. I was supposed to use black beans to go with the quinoa, but realized I didn’t have any. I did, however, have some fat-free refried beans which worked just fine, too. Instead of making tacos I used the ingredients, pico de gallo, low-fat sour cream, avocado, those great low-carb whole wheat tortillas and cilantro, to make burritos which were a hit with my kids. (My husband said he already had burritos earlier that day so he got the leftover salmon from yesterday with some of the quinoa…which he ate!!!…and sauted green beans.) I had the quinoa, which was seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder, on the side with the beans I didn’t put in the burrito and a little extra pico de gallo.

10:10pm – Once the kids were in bed I started my workout, FIRE55EZ and Stretch 10. This is the same combo from Day 1 and even though it’s not easy, it’s certainly easier than the combo from Day 2. Even still, about 20 minutes in I was thinking about how there’s a provision if you’re feeling really tired to just do 20 minutes of 55EZ. I was tempted. Then I remembered that my friend who’s doing this with me finished the whole thing in the morning and I couldn’t let her beat me. That’s one of the great things about having a fitness buddy. You always push each other to do more.

12:15am – Last meal. This would’ve been lunch if I hadn’t taken that much needed nap. Heaven on a plate. Baked (technically microwaved) potato with 1 slice of low-fat cheddar cheese, 1 Tbs. low-fat sour cream, 1 slice of turkey bacon all nice and crispy, green onion (scallion) and chives fresh from my friend’s garden. She also gave me some fresh rosemary which I will be using on Day 5. When choosing a fitness buddy it’s always nice to pick one with a garden. Just sayin’.

Since I was a bit busier than usual today, I’m posting most of this at the end of the day and don’t quite remember when or how much water I drank. I’m fairly certain that if I have at least another 20oz I’ll be ok. Last night I had some Stash mango passionfruit tea with a packet of Truvia which was basically perfection. Maybe I’ll do that again tonight, too.

Day 1

Day 2

Day 4

This is a continuation from yesterday. Like I said, I would be eating more after midnight because I go to bed so late. It’s amazing how quickly calories add up when you’re not paying attention, even when the food is healthy.

This is everything I consumed after wrapping up yesterday’s journal and before I went to bed.

3 whole walnuts – 100

1 “Cutie” Mandarin – 35

2 Tbs sugar-free Cool Whip – 20

Turkey sandwich with mustard and American cheese on whole wheat – 350

1 oz. corn chips – 140

1/2 c. lowfat cottage cheese – 100

1 slice Italian bread with 1 Tbs hummus – 110

One thing I’m noticing as I go through the list is that I tend to reach for calorie-dense foods late at night instead of veggies which you can eat a lot of with few calories, especially raw ones. Now on to today.

Pre-breakfast (I wanted to eat something when I got up to get the kids off to school just to get my metabolism going, but I knew I’d be going back to sleep so I didn’t want a lot) – 1/2 large banana – 60

Breakfast (at 3pm) – Chocolate Banana Nut Muffin Shakeology (4oz water, 4oz Silk Vanilla Soy Milk, 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology, 1/2 large very ripe banana, 1 tsp natural peanut butter (wish I had remembered we have walnuts!), 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 Tbs quick oats, 1 scoop Fiber Boost and 3 ice cubes) – 315

 “Lunch” (aka Dinner to the rest of the family) – Bean and cheese burrito (1 large tortilla, not whole wheat even though it would be healthier but if I’m going to eat a tortilla every once in a while I want to enjoy it and I haven’t really found a good whole wheat version that I enjoy for burritos, 1/2 c fat-free refried beans, 2 Tbs salsa, 1 Tbs fat-free plain yogurt because it has one forth the calories of light sour cream and once it’s in a burrito I don’t notice a difference, and 2 Tbs shredded Mexican blend cheese) – 360

At this point I’ve eaten 1590 calories since my last post. I don’t have the totals for everything else like fiber, fat, protein and carbs because for some reason the bodybugg program isn’t opening and I’m too lazy right now to add it all up. No doubt I’ll eat something else before I go to bed and will try to focus on good stuff that’s low in calories as opposed to low calorie foods that are basically just chemicals with no nutritional value. Sometimes I wish I could just drink Shakeology and not have to worry about it. See you tomorrow!
