Woke up this morning feeling great and not tired. This of course happens on the weekend but never during the week when I just beg for morning to come later rather than sooner and usually wake up exhausted.
I gained weight!
I weighed myself and almost screamed in frustration. I’m actually up almost a 1/4 of a pound. Seriously?!?! I gained weight!
This is discouraging to know that restricting my normal diet resulted in adding weight. Maybe it was the potatoes in the soup I don’t know but I’ll be eating around the potatoes now.
For breakfast I cooked two of the three beef products I had purchased from Whole Foods for this diet/cleanse. I seasoned it well and added a lil Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan to avoid sticking.
Let me just say that the Beef Loin Tenderloin Steak was superb. It was so tender and I could tell that before I even cooked it.
I’m not very knowledgeable about cuts of beef in general, but from what I heard on the news recently the names of the beef and pork cuts will be changing to make it more consumer friendly.
I ended up only eating one of the steaks it was so tasty but I a used half a teaspoon of A1 Steak sauce because I just love that stuff. And I made one egg to go along with it. So I cheated a little but at this point I’m not sure it’ll make much difference in the program. I also had a little soup and a tomato while I was cooking the steaks.
For dinner I had more beef and a bowl of soup. I won’t have the 6 whole tomatoes recommended on the plan but the soup contains several tomatoes so hopefully I’ll have had enough.
Water intake should increase from 80 ounces to 112. I’ll try my best to get as close to 112 as possible. But it’s not looking good.
Last night I dreamed that I had consumed half a Mountain Dew, so I woke up with an attitude for ruining this diet. But as I was weighing myself I realized it was just a dream. But more importantly I woke up with imminent urge to pee. I had high expectations for at least three pounds to be erased from the number on the scale. But I was only down about 2.4. Better luck tomorrow.
For lunch I had guacamole that I made the night before and instead of chips I used baby carrots and celery to dip it in.
For dinner I had sweet corn and broccoli. I’m at about 52 out of the 80 recommended ounces of water and I have about four hours left before bed. I
