Recap of yesterday:
Diet: I’m finding that these recipes and food choices are not something I am enjoying. I’m not saying that will be the case for everyone. I was unable to stomach my so-called snack yesterday so I ate a South Beach protein bar. I also was hungry between breakfast and lunch and ate too small snack-size candy bars. I decided after today that I will still try to stay to the plan as much as possible however I may cook my food just a little differently than what is in the book. Tracy is very admit that you are supposed to follow it to a tee however in order to make it through the week I’m going to have to make a few changes. So that said I will still update each week on my progress but I will be varying things just a bit. For the most part, I will be trying to follow the plan. It will be interesting to see if I still lose her claim of 3-5 lbs.
Exercise: I enjoyed the exercise this morning as I mentioned in the day 2 post. I made it through the first 10 minutes of cardio with all the jumping and high impact and slowed down during the second session. My legs and stomach started getting sore throughout the day but by the time I got home, the soreness started to go away.
Today’s plan: My plan today is to still get up and do the exercises in the morning and follow the meals as much as possible. I will mention my variations below.
Breakfast: Veggie Omelet Roll-Up. The major variation to this was I just made an omelet instead of her instructions to puree the veggies. I did not add the spinach and I added a pinch of cheese and bacon bits to the omelet. I also used one egg and one egg white instead of two egg whites.
Lunch: Grilled Salmon Salad with Endive and Red Onion. I think I was supposed to buy a larger endive than what I did so I am unable to make the salad with the endive. I opted for baked Salmon and a side salad of spinach and kidney beans. I’m also opting for the spray dressing then her homemade dressing.
Snack: Blueberry Applesauce. The recipe called for steamed apples and blueberries blended to make applesauce. I decided it was easier to just eat blueberries and apples.
Dinner: Orange Glazed Salmon and Roasted Mushrooms. The only adaption to this meal was instead of roasting the mushrooms and adding lemon. I fried them in cooking spray and topped with a little garlic salt.
I think this day should be a little easier to follow with my adaptations. My goal was to follow this exactly as per the book because Tracy often mentions that you have to do just that. For the purpose of this review, I will be making these small changes so that I can get through the week, and will update you on my progress.
