Day 1 Breakfast: 1/2 a grapefruit, toast with 2 Tbsp of peanut butter, green tea
The green tea clearly did not live up to my routine morning cup of pumpkin spice coffee, heavy on the cream. I started off my Monday grumpy and groggy - I knew it was going to be a long day! I was hungry about 9:45 wishing I could have a morning snack. Instead I drank another 16 ounces of water and went to the bathroom two more times.
Day 1 Lunch: 2 oz chicken, 1/4 cup yogurt with 1/2 tsp flax seed, green tea
I was so hungry by the time I ate lunch that I scarfed it down and forgot to take a picture. But imagine like 9 teeny tiny pieces of grilled chicken and about three spoonfuls of yogurt. I was still starving when my lunch was gone. From about 1:30 on, every time I got up from my desk I was lightheaded. I started developing a migraine that worsened as the day went on. I was feeling so faint I could barely concentrate on work. By the time I got home I was way past the point of hungry and just felt sick.
Day 1 Dinner: 3 oz chicken, 1 cup green beans, 1/2 banana, small apple, 1 cup vanilla ice cream
I was so impatient to hurry up and eat that I undercooked the green beans. They tasted like they were straight up from the dirt (do green beans even grow in the dirt? whatever). The chicken was good, but once I finished it I really wanted something more than just fruit. This was the most food I had been allowed to eat all day but it just wasn't satisfying. Caleb kept telling me to just can the diet and how it wasn't healthy and wasn't worth it for me to be miserable. So, I quit! My name is Sherri Lynn and I am a diet quitter. The last diet I was going to try was a cleanse (yikes, that I also found on Pinterest!), and I chickened out the day before I started.
I think the moral of this story is to stay away from diets that you find on Pinterest. Also, just eat healthily and exercise.
P.S. I did lose 2.7 pounds that day! But duh, if you starve yourself of course you'll lose weight. Totally not worth it.
