As usual I started great. I made a bowl of grits (hominy) with coconut butter topped with tomatoes. I wasn’t really sure what the health benefits were from grits and I am still a bit unsure but I wanted to feel full to a certain extent. I did learn that grits provides a certain level of Vitamin B and contributes to boosting energy, so there is that plus.
For lunch I with drew from the Raw diet concept (although I really wanted to be successful at maintaining it) I had a small bowl of the chicken vegetable stew that I made for the family this weekend. It’s actually very healthy. All Fresh vegetables, skinless chicken and egg noodles (that’s probably where my problem lies). Overall it’s a pretty square meal. For dinner I went back to the rawness of my kale, tomatoes and cucumber.
I did have a moment of truth though that I must share. I work from my home office. So while the husband is at work and the daughter is at school and in between calls and clients I get a little sidetracked. Every ad of food I see looks extremely appetizing and I begin to crave the unsavoriness of savory foods. LOL So I picked up my tablet and was about to order my favorite fried rice from my favorite Chinese restaurant on Grub Hub. I went through the entire process. Even ordered my favorite Tia Tea. When it came time to press the ORDER NOW button I hesitated. Questioning the whole process. How could I give in so easily?! It had only been 48 hours. I pushed the “empty bag” button instead and deleted the Grub Hub app to avoid temptation. AHHHH CRISIS AVERTED!!!
I know I am gonna hit a few bumps in the road and I am definitely off to a stumbling start but I refuse to give up. I am determined to meet my goal.
On the plus side I have not had any sodas or sugary drinks or snacks. It’s been ALL water ALL day.
So it isn’t the exact game plan I intended to follow but it’s still a pretty decent start on this journey. I have to really work on my will power. I will conquer my WILL POWER and I will not be defeated by it. So if you have any ideas or advice that helped you conquer you dieting demons, PLEASE HELP A SISTA OUT!!!
