I have to say I am shockingly surprised at how easy this diet plan is. I was afraid that I would not be able to just eat cereal for two meals a day but this is a highly transportable diet plan.
I left my house this morning at 8 am and just got home. I ate my cereal and fruit before I left home. I was able to carry my snacks with me, ate my normal meal for lunch and carried my protein shake dinner with me to drink at a ball game. Again today I was afraid that the small portions were not going to be enough and was a little bit hungry at lunch but for the rest of the day I have been satisfied.
I had the protein shake today, this was the first time. It is not the worst, but not the best protein shake I have ever had. And I just learned today that there are little snack crackers that I can eat. I didn't know about them and I will be looking for those tomorrow at the grocery store.
Another thing I like about this plan is that I have freedom to use my free meal for any meal of the day. Today I was going to be on the road so it was better for me to be able to eat lunch as the free meal. But on days that I run I like to have a hearty breakfast and with this plan I can do that. I am just anxious to see how this works for the entire two weeks. I'm excited to keep going with this one.
The rest of my day was uneventful. I never worked out today! Ah what will I do...workout tomorrow! I was late for my workout class and had to head off to a ballgame tonight so no workout class. I will just make it up tomorrow morning at the steps and on my run.
I am actually glad I had a day off today. I didn't plan on it but it seems that all my mini ailments (or simply complaints) decided to all trouble me today. I am trying to get a cold and have had a cough today and last night during my workout I strained, pulled, hurt (whatever) a muscle in my chest. Well a cough and sore chest don't really go well together. I am not sure my chest could have handled Core Power, otherwise known as Plank Central tonight even if I could have gone.
Looking so forward and ready for my run tomorrow. I know it sounds a little bit crazy but now that I have finally got past the 10 mile rut, I am just so fired up and ready to go again. I dont ever want to take the day off from running. I am constantly ready to run and am just chomping at the bit for the next long run.
Day 3 coming up....check back and lets see how it goes.
