Days 3 & 4

So, I've had an epiphany! 

I wasn't working the first time I did this whole "healthy lifestyle" thing, I didn't have the stress of work and fitting everything (meal prep or exercising) into an already hectic schedule... Day 4 I didn't want the buffalo chicken I had already prepped so I went ahead and made eggs with a very low sodium salsa instead which hit the spot and made me very happy! Of course since I was having that, my husband wanted it too but complained when he found out I used 3 egg white and 1 whole egg. He told me I should have given him 4 whole eggs and the extra yolks I didn't want in mine HAHA. I'm starting to suspect that some one else (my hubby) is starting to get cranky from his decrease in junk food.

The "cookie cabinet" at my office...
These first two days off loading I have had some major sweet cravings and I did indulge in 1 cookie each day which I ate VERY SLOW because I knew I couldn't afford one, let alone a second! I thought to myself, Heather get it together, what did you do on your successful round when you had a craving? Most of the time I would go for a walk in the neighborhood or even take a nap to occupy my mind since I wasn't really hungry. The only thing I can really do now is walk around my office when we're not busy...

Meal wise, I try to prepare a few days worth during the weekend so I don't slack during the week. I don't prepare too much so it won't spoil before we have a chance to eat it. With my water intake, I've been trying to get back up to the gallon a day I used to get in but it's hard and I'm getting bored with not having flavor. Today I added Mio into my 1/2 gallon (not sure if that's allowed) and that seemed to help a bit.

 I almost forgot to mention the horrible cramps I've now started getting in my right leg only at night when I'm trying to sleep. Not quite understanding it since I have been drinking more water than I was. It eventually goes away, it's still annoying though. 

I'll be posting my progress weekly on each Saturday since that's the day of the week that I started. Hope the rest of you ladies and gentlemen trying to get fit and healthy are continuing to do well.
