Day 1- Is this really a diet?

Hey yall! I don't have much time but seriously.

Today was GREAT! I do not feel deprived.  I have energy and I am very happy with my choices today!  It might get harder as the days go on, in fact Im sure it will, but today went well! 

Breakfast was 2 eggs, lite cheese and mushrooms. 

I had coffee and half and half ( I am supposed to use fat free half n half but I needed to use up mine) but barely drank like half of that V8. Nasty.  Too salty.

I had 20 peanuts for a snack.  Dry unsalted. 

I got a lot of activity in today, walking with a friend and push mowing the grass! A tan too! Woo!

Lunch was tuna salad made with mustard and a tbsp. of low fat mayo which I googled and it is supposedly approved on phase one.  Very little sugars or carbs in it so I am sure Im fine.  I also had banana peppers which I am not sure if they are approved but for the small amount I should be ok.  I had pickle and onion in it too.  Everything was so good.  I had it over a bed of shredded cabbage with a side of cottage cheese.

I had sugar free jello for desert. 

It was very good!
Mid afternoon I got a headache.  I don't know if it was from being in the sun all day, locking myself out of the house, OR perhaps no sugar.  Not sure.  But 3 ibprofiens kicked it's bootay!
I had a cheese stick before me and hubs went on a date night.  He has been gone for 3 nights out of town!
We went to Longhorn -my current fave!  I got an 11 oz sirloin, broccoli and salad with blue cheese.  The dressing should be approved, the blue cheese I buy at home has no carbs or sugars. I forgot and used a bit of A-1 but I think Im ok! :) Also I did not eat any of the bread!! WINNING!!!! 

I brought some of me and hubbys steak home and will have it with eggs in the morning. 

Desert was a no sugar added fudge pop for 40 calories! I wanted another one but that would have put me over 75 cals for sugar free stuff. 

It was so tasty! 
I forgot I had to take a new prenatal vitamin and I wasn't sure if it would make me sick on an empty stomach, (not too empty with steak and fudge pops!) but to be safe I ate a desert from the South Beach Diet book. 
Its called the vanilla cream ricotta or something? Its half a cup ricotta cheese with 1/4 tsp vanilla and sugar free sweetner.  It was pretty good!
How Am I Feeling: Except for the small headache this afternoon I have felt great.  This doesn't even really feel like a diet yet.  Im sure it will though, when others are having things off limits to me.  The bread looked good tonight but I was in the right mindset! Im also writing down scripture in my planner so that will help strengthen my mind.  Its a mind game too! I LOVE that I really don't have to measure anything or count calories.  You have to watch your sugar free intake and your nut intake.  I am measuring my half and half just while its not fat free.  I was not stuffed at dinner from eating so much bread.  I feel great right now honestly.  I am looking forward to my steak and eggs in the morning!  I will see yall tomorrow!  :)


  1. The no bread part is always the hardest! Even if I had lost bunches of weight in the past and was doing great, SOMEWHERE the bread would get me! It's like each place has their own special bread or something. Argh! Lol Yay for day 1 done!

  2. It's no small feat to avoid the bread basket! Great job!
