nlevy12 Posted July 12, 2012 Share Posted July 12, 2012 Today is start of my 30 day journey and I was surprised at how dare I say easy the transition has been. Although I anticipate struggles in the future, I feel a sense of optimism as Day 1 concludes. One of my biggest issues in the past has been eating out of stress, which has really become a problem as of late. Looking back at my last quarter in college, it was ridiculous at the extreme binge eating that would occur during midterm or finals week. As summer school is beginning, I felt the same issues would ensue, so I'm hoping this challenge will spark a new and healthier me! I also enjoy going to the gym 6 days a week, so I'm hoping that the combination of exercise and proper food choices will help me live a healthier lifestyle free of cravings and binge eating. Breakfast - 8:15 AM 3 eggs with 1/4 of a zucchini, 1/2 onion, handful of carrots, arugula, cilantro, 5 cremini mushrooms (I'm not used to eating whole eggs and not just egg whites, but I felt fuller and more satisfied as I went through my workout) apple Gym - 9:00-11:00 AM Treadmill (ran 2 miles at a fairly good pace, but Im hoping to extend it to 3 or 4 miles overtime) and bicep/tricep workout Lunch - 1:30 PM Spinach Salad with chicken, beets, peperoncinis Snack - 4:30 PM Mango and small peach Dinner - 7:00 PM (planning) Sweet Potato with sautÃ©ed garlic, onions, mushroom (shitake, cremini, oyster) I am not used to cooking with fat, so that is something that I will have to adjust to (I normally just use those sprays) Overall, it was a good day, but I'm not sure if I'm eating too much or not enough, so that is something I will have to gauge as well.
