Week 2!

I don't want to mention how much I weigh...

I got my period and my scales show that I have gained weight, so I choose to ignore the readings....

But... I have to admit that week 2 was not a very good one and I gave in to temptation...

Lets see what week 3 will show!

Week 1!

Yesterday was Sunday.

I concluded my first week and Sunday was the free 7th day.

On Sundays I will weigh myself and see what I have accomplished.
So, for week 1 I lost 1,5 kilos.

Actually, 1,5 kilos for one week is really fine, considering I had a few sugar cookies these days.... I know, my mistake.... I sadly have to admit to my mirror that I could have lost more had it not been for the cookies.

God, I love them. They are one of my favourite things!

Exercise: Well, I went to the gym just once this week. Not good, I'm afraid, but I will try and find more time during week 2.

The diet routine is pretty much the same everyday. I had fruit and ham and graviera cheese for breakfast, protein and vegetables for lunch and one fruit and milk with a meal substitute for dinner.
It doesn't sound a lot, but I am not hungry, which is good!
More specifically my lunches were grilled salmon and green salad, grilled burger and tomato salad, green beans casserole and feta cheese, mushrooms and graviera cheese, grilled burger and a salad again.
On Saturday I had nothing, because it was a really stressful day and I was not in the mood for eating. I must remember not to do this again. It's not healthy!

On Sunday I had a cheese pie with grapefruit juice for breakfast, minced meat empanadas for lunch and oat cereal for dinner. Yeah, I had my carbs!

Today, we are back on track!

Day 4!

I know, it is early to see any results...
But, I think I have started well.

The first 2 days were sort of detox days. I had vegetables, fruit, meal substitutes (for the protein) and pills. I was OK, a little hungry of course, but that was only natural.
I mean if you go from carbs and cookies and souvlaki to fruit, vegetables and protein, you are bound to be a little hungry!!!!

The ultimate test was this morning. A collegue brought small cheese pies from an amazing store "Dodoni"! The BEST kourou cheese pie I have ever eaten! Warm, buttery, fresh.... The whole office smells like a bakery. (I am droolling right now...).
I DID NOT EAT. Shall I say it again? I did not eat the cheese pie.
I am so proud of myself!

*sigh* I hope I can continue dodging temptations.

Sunday is a free day, which means I can eat carbs. I have taken a cheese pie, I will put it in the freezer and defrost it in my oven on Sunday morning. I will enjoy it with some orange juice! Can't wait!
