Today is the middle day of this craziness. After today I will be more than halfway through the 7 day cabbage soup diet.
My brain is all for it, my stomach is calling me all sorts of 4 letter names.
In some ways I feel better, a testament to the fact that clean eating is better for our bodies. But right now the protein content isn’t quite enough. I’m a
bit cranky 2-headed monster and tired a lot. But even though it has been damp and rainy I have fewer aches and pains (partially attributed to the fish oil supplement, but not all). I’m not all bloated like you can get when eating processed junk food, and I feel more hydrated because all the foods I am eating have a water content to them.
Yesterday was not bad.
Cabbage soup and as much fruits and veggies (no bananas or corn) as I could eat.
Today is bananas and skim milk which hopefully the milk will give me some of the protein I am craving. Tomorrow is beef and tomatoes so I know I will get that protein soon!
Day 1: 159.2 (starting weight)
Day 2: 157.6 (-1.6 lbs)
Day 3: 155.8 (-1.8 lbs)
Day 4: 154.2 (-1.6 lbs)
Total loss so far = 5 lbs
The one thing I cannot explain is why the phrase “hump day” makes me want a donut. Although right about now EVERYTHING looks like some sort of candy bar, ice cream or pizza.
Although I’d be happy with an egg and some dry oatmeal. In fact, my body isn’t craving the sweets, it just want substance. My brain is the thing dreaming about donuts and brownies.
