Phase I done
Monday, March 21, 2011
So I am finished Phase I of SBD. Day 3 was by far the worst but after that I was back to normal. Obviously just a sugar withdrawal....not fun:( So overall I didn't lose a whole lot of weight, only 4 lbs, but didn't really expect too as I really only have 15lbs as a goal to lose and am generally not an addictive eater. I will admit I did cheat a tiny bit, on day 12 I had a little bit of rice as I went for sushi but kept it to a very small amount ...maybe 1/2 cup overall. and on day 14 I had 3-4 small baby potatoes and some carrots. I stuck pretty strong the whole time!
My success though for Phase I was a toal of 4 lbs and a loss of 5 3/4 inches so that makes me happy!! I am definitely more focused on my inches lost that weight numbers.
Today I am adding back an apple, so I can have an apple with my organic peanut butter for my morning snack.....yummmm. On the weekend it will for sure be a peice of multi grain toast with breakfast with PB.
So going forward I am going to keep going on South Beach for the most part but I do need to watch my calorie intake as I know that that works for me, and I was getting a bit too many calories by eating more nuts than I normally would. So my gaol is to stick between 1200-1500 calories a day. I am sticking to getting up in the morning and doing 20-30 min workout and then doing stairs at lunch 3-4 days a week 52 flights up (down is too hard on my knees so I just go up).
So....on ward and...and upward...no wait...downward!! ...in weight & inches.... :)
