Day #3 of the “Diet Within a Diet” – Goal: To lose 5 pounds in 21 days!

I weighed in at 115.0 today!  I had plenty of water yesterday, so now I can be sure that it’s an authentic weight loss.  It’s time to celebrate!  Two pounds down; three to go…

Here’s what I ate today:

Upon rising:  8 oz. water

Breakfast:  Fruity Protein Shake, blueberry tea with Beyond C powder, supplements

During mini-workout:  Nothing (I forgot my water bottle in the car.)

Morning snack: Banana

Lunch: 3 cups of celery chunks, carrot chunks, and apple chunks, topped with 2 tbsp. of almond butter, water

Afternoon snack:  Greens Plus Energy Bar, small tomato

Supper:  Crockpot turkey, Tossed Salad, baked potato with Earth Balance buttery spread, water, blueberry tea

Bedtime:  Greens Shake, water

Reflection on Day #3:

I went to Planet Fitness this morning, but not at 5:00 a.m.  I packed a beach bag with my work clothes and headed to the gym at 7:20 a.m.  I only had time to jog one mile on the treadmill before heading to school, but hey!  One mile is better than nothing.  I ate all healthy food today in proper portions, and I feel full and satisfied tonight.  I’m ready for bed, though.  Even though it’s only 8:00 p.m., I’m learning that it’s best to listen to my body and let it rest when it’s tired.

Good night!  🙂
