Welcome to day 5!
This morning, I weighed myself to see if I had lost any weight from the deep cleans I did yesterday, and even with that one mozzarella stick I ate I managed to lose 2 pounds! I don’t feel very different but the scale doesn’t lie! So in the past 4 days I have managed to lose 3 pounds, which I think is pretty impressive coming from someone who only needs to lose around 7 pounds to begin with.
Today since I woke up late, I did not have my shake or take all my vitamins before running out the door so I just took my favorite bar, the Chocolate Cream Crunch bar to supplement for my breakfast. I then went to lunch with a friend and had a very carb filled bagel and chicken sandwich. Well that is going to be my splurge meal for the day which is perfectly okay if I continue to follow the diet for the rest of the day. When I did come home I took all my morning pills (although it was close to 3 pm by that point). Since I am still pretty full from that lunch I am not going to have an afternoon snack and just have my shake or my healthy brown rice and veggie bowl that I intended to eat before lunch but never got around to. I also decided to have an extra chocolate cream crunch bar. So I guess I didn’t do a very good job today but tomorrow I am going to get back on track.
It is okay if you mess up a little bit on the diet. Clearly eating a mozzarella stick is not the best thing to do but I still managed to lose weight because the rest of the time I followed the diet strictly. And even today when I ate at different times and took my vitamins in the afternoon, I am still taking all the necessary supplements and making sure if I eat more calories during a meal I eat less for the next meal. Its all a balancing act. You will lose as much weight as the amount of effort you put into it.
