Hi, everyone :)

My name is Kayla & I am on day 3 of Phase I, my first ever adventure into South Beach diet territory :) Hoping to post here to give & recieve support, encouragement & accountability!

And also, if anyone sees anything that I am eating that might not be right for phase I, please let me know! Thanks :)

Breakfast
Mock French Toast
1 T. Walden Farms zero calorie/zero sugar peanut spread
a few sprays of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter
3 turkey sausage links

Lunch
Large iceburg & spinach salad with broccoli, red pepper, cucumbers, 1/4 C. fat free cheddar cheese & 5 oz. baked chicken breast
2 T. sugar free/calorie free dressing

Snack
1 oz. walnuts
1 light cheese stick

Supper
2 boiled eggs
steamed broccoli & cauliflower
1 C. skim milk

Dessert
1 serving sugar free Jell-o

I struggle with getting in a vegetable in the morning. The cravings aren't too bad for carbs, thankfully, but I am having a hard time with headaches & feeling kind of tired. I'm hoping this is "normal" and will pass in a few days?

Glad to be here!! :)

zeffryn

welcome!

the headaches and fatigue are pretty normal, especially since you're on day 3. expect 1-2 more days of it, and then as your body starts to adjust, the headaches will go away and your energy will come back.

I struggle with a veggie in the morning as well. when you start phase 2, it might be easier because you can always throw some in a smoothie along with some fruit and be fine. I usually just make sure that I get my 4.5 cups of veggies in at some other point in the day.

This weekend I was totally ridiculous with off plan foods. Not to mention that I ate WAY too many on plan foods as well...ugh! I couldn't stop stuffing my face!! Why oh Why!! I paid for it with a four pound gain on the scale from last week....argh!

So...today I was back on plan!! All day long!! :) I started my Insanity workout again. And I had hubby take some pics of me, wearing the same outfit I was wearing at my high weight of 214. I can SEE the difference!! Talk about inspiration! My fat rolls are definitely smaller...lol So, onward I go...trudging along. Finally feeling like I just might be able to reach my goal of 175 by 1/1/2011!

It's so annoying how a weekend of little cheats adds up to make the cravings/hungriness return. I've been eating so much today and I was still really snacky feeling all day! Doing Phase 1.5 for the next few weeks until I can get below 130.

B: Turkey with cream cheese, apple and cheese stick
S: Bell pepper with hummus
L: Salad and chili
S: Peanuts, celery with cream cheese
D: Chili, SF fudgesicle

Hmm.. that doesn't actually look too terrible now that I've typed it all out. Hopefully the scale will start scooting along soon.

S: celery
L: chicken kale soup, lf string cheese, 1/2 bell pepper
S: 1 oz cashews, lf string cheese

Pretty good today, although I got hungry an hour or so after lunch and had my snack early, I think it was just thirst maybe...here's to a drop on the scale for all of us tomorrow!

a good W-I today! down 2, usually it is just half a pound or so lately. i talked to my trainer last week and we had a heart to heart, she said that i needed to change up my cardio more than i was and make sure that even though i was more comfortable with my body, that i wasn't getting too comfortable with my diet and allowing small slips here and there. She was right on both counts :)

P 1.5
1: greek yogurt with a few pomegranate arils, 1 egg

tallandthin - it comes with the gym membership. it's pretty cool, though. a free personal training session every 6 weeks. she also weighs, measures and does body fat. i have a food journal that she looks at and offers any advice, and then she'll give me pointers on new exercises that i can focus on for those 6 weeks until we meet again. it's actually really great and makes me very accountable.

Interesting & rewarding day for me... it's my son's 7th birthday & I made a cake for him. Not only did i not have any, I didn't even really want any! I mean, sure I had a thought about eating a piece, but it was fleeting. I'm not obsessing about having some & didn't even want to lick the knife after frosting it or anything. Totally out of the norm for me!! And it just feels good to have some of those obsessive thoughts about carbs & sugar not filling my mind! Today's only day 6 of phase I, but I really think it's making a difference & I am so thankful!!

I feel like i'm getting sick....vitamins in my future...

We went shopping tonight. DH volunteered to take me shopping for my birthday and he was wonderful, sitting there patiently while I tried on a million different things. I got some really beautiful stuff at a high-end consignment store by our house. Some J-Crew and Ann Taylor that still had the tags on (a BEAUTIFUL navy sleeveless silk shirt with a pleated ruffle around the collar and down the front - I can't wait to wear it with a blazer). DH was so impressed that I got as much as I did for the money spent. I told him I would spend the rest tomorrow on some accessories ;)

Had dinner at a local pizza joint that has an amazing healthy pizza. The rest of the family ordered garlic cheese bread and I had a bite, I was pretty happy with myself that I didn't eat more. Iced tea on the side and some amazing live music made for a really wonderful evening.

OK, I know, I know, not my best day. Where are the vegs other than the slaw? What happened to the morning snack, lunch and the afternoon snack? Dud! perhaps that is why I was so hungry last night. Darn, it is so easy to start slipping..........

Well, it's a new day and I'm going to do a better job of eating on plan today! I promise and when I make a promise, I don't break it.

I can hardly believe I ate OP all day today, as crazy as that sounds- its been so hard lately for me to get that day 1 under my belt! I am way short on calories today(861) but I have just been too busy all day to eat really. And at my work we aren't allowed to have food or even water with us anymore so I can only have a snack if I am not busy with appointments and I have time to go to the designated area. blah. anywho- I ate all OP except the apple with pb I had planned but I may have that later if I get hungry! Tomorrow's plan is

B:chia smoothie
S: apple
L: cabbage stir fry with tofu
S: hummus and carrots
D: chili again
Plan on having after dinner drinks with some friends but planning to stay within reason! That being 2 drinks!

Oh, and I didn't get my workout in, I was at work an hour later than expected and just didn't force myself, but next week I will be back at the gym no if ands or buts about it!

Murph, If you don't mind sharing, when you post almond butter as a snack, are you just eating a teaspoon of it or ? I bought some the other day but haven't had any yet.

I've had the Mahi Mahi from Trader Joe's and I agree, it is good.

Here's where it all goes out the window. We're going up to my parents and I'll just have to do the best I can. If anything, I'll focus on avoiding carbs. I also know we are going out to dinner tonight and I might be tempted. We'll see.

Good Saturday morning! Last weekend on Phase 1 here! I have spent the entire morning reading up on transitioning from Phase 1 to Phase 2, I am thinking about adding winter squash or an apple as my first carb. Any tips would be great!

So, for today:
B: coffee w/ 1 Tbsp ff 1/2 and 1/2; about 2 cups steamed cabbage; 2 hard boiled eggs --very random breakfast, I know!
S: 3/4 c lf cottage cheese
L: leftover spaghetti squash w/ grnd turkey and tomato squash
S: 1 oz cashews, lf string cheese
D: roasted chicken and zucchini
S: sf jello

My bf and I are soooo excited to start Phase 2! :carrot:

Here is what I ate yesterday phase 1.5

B - 1 cup decaf coffee w/sf creamer, 2 eggs, 1 turkey bacon, V-8.
S - 1 Brazil nut
L - Lrg grn salad w/tomato, radish, mushrooms, avocado, left over pork tenderloin w/Feta cheese dressing.
S - String chees and apple
D - Taco Turkey, refried nf beans, lettuce and lf cheese.
Dessert - Nf Greek plain yogurt w/splenda, cinnamon, pecans.

Not sure what is going on but the scale is being very stubborn. I believe I'm eating on plan plus walking every day now so don't know exactly what is going on but will keep the faith and see what happens.

As of today, I have been on the beach for one month, have not eaten off plan one time and have lost 18 1/2 lbs so far! It works if we just work it.

Yesterday phase 1.5

B - 1 cup decaf coffee w/sf creamer, mock pancakes (I know, where is the V-8 and turkey bacon?)
S - 2 teaspoons natural peanutbutter.
L - Leftover taco turkey, ff refried beans w/pico de Gallo, lf cheese and lettuce.
S - none
D - Leftover taco turkey, ff refried beans w/Pico de Gallo, lf cheese and lettuce. (a lb of grn turkey and a can of beans goes a long way!)
Dessert - cup Ricotta cheese, splenda, cinnamon, pecans.

Even though I've stayed on plan, still need a lot of work in portion size and not skipping any meals or snacks.
