Today was the day before my weigh day which means it was a shake day. This was my third week doing this on Thursdays. I have to tell you, when Nikki first recommended this to me, I really didn't think that I was going to be able to do it. In the past if I hadn't eaten enough (what I thought was enough) I would feel weak, shakey, and would start sweating. I saw a doctor to see if I had blood sugar issues and he said that I had nothing wrong. That I just had to learn to work through it. I haven't really considered that I had worked through it.
Shake days consist of:
- A protein shake (powder with 6 oz of water or 8 oz of milk) and a piece of fruit for breakfast
- Same for lunch
- 2 pieces of fruit for an afternoon snack
- Then something higher in protein for dinner. And I try to stay low sodium.
I feel really good about my one day (or sometimes two days) a week that I do the shake days.
Some other things I do to exercise my will power is set times that I can eat. In this case I may or may not be making the healthiest choice, but I'm not allowing myself to eat anything until the designated time. It might be a specific time or I may say that something has to happen before I can eat it. A lot of times it is my workout before I can eat dinner.
And on another note....I'm keeping my fingers crossed for 2.5 pounds this week.
