Day 2 & 3 Food Log Samples and Thoughts

So here it three....and I haven't been doing that bad.  In fact...I haven't even cheated ONCE!

Well, it depends on what you count as "cheating."

Atkin's "induction" is pretty strict.  I think it doesn't let you have fake sugar, caffeine, etc...etc...  I have had ANY soda so far, and I plan to keep it that way.  So far just water!  I'm not goin' crazy yet.  But mostly if it's low carb, I'll eat it! LOL!  I'm only getting in under 1000 calories per day, so I need to bump that up a little if I'm working out. (Or maybe I shouldn't .....hmmm...I AM in it to win it.)  That's it. Nothing but laxatives and water for 8 weeks. 

Day 2 Food Log
Breakfast: SF chocolate pudding
Lunch: 6 hot wings
Dinner: 5 meatballs wrapped in a low carb tortilla. (yeah what? I don't freaking know.)
1 sugar free toffee square

Day 3 Food Log
Breakfast: Skipped
Lunch: Crab salad (1/2 cup) and an iced grande cafe americano. shhh
Dinner (plan): Cooked Broccoli, tuna salad.

I haven't had any cravings so far!  Probably because I've been sugar-freeing it up too much.  I haven't had an actual VEGETABLE in awhile.  Maybe I'll have that for dinner.

I tried a "Hip Hop" class last night, and while it was FUN I didn't get in the "zone" like I can with my own music on the treadmill.  But I DO like that it keeps my heart rate higher and steady for a longer period of time, versus a really high heart rate for only 30 minutes or so. 

I got all excited when I weighed in at 187.2 yesterday.  Today I was 188.0.  GAH!  I heard that people who weigh themselves EVERY day tend to keep better track of their weight, which I believe.  But if it psyches you out, then don't.  Honestly, it doesn't psych me out at all, I'm just being dramatic and funny.  It doesn't phase me in the least bit because I know that it varies 1-2 pounds daily.  At the close of the week I'll take it seriously!
