Dieting

Week 1, Day 1


BREAKFAST:

Cheddar Cheese Omelet with Hashbrowns

Despite looking nothing like the picture on the eDiets website, the omelet and hashbrown stick were delicious! I had heard horror stories on eDiets’ message boards about how egg breakfasts were to be avoided, due to eggs tasting rubbery and gritty, however, these eggs were great! I didn’t add any condiments, not even salt or pepper. In the future, I may add salsa, or grilled mushrooms, or maybe some fresh dill, just to make it less plain. Overall though, my first meal of eDiets was very good!

Side Note: I am also trying to drink the recommended 8 glasses of water a day. My goal was to drink one 8 oz bottle of water with breakfast to get in my first “glass”. I succeeded, but felt like my stomach was going to pop when I finished! And I have been peeing nonstop since! I have no idea how I am going to drink 7 more!

LUNCH:

Oven Roasted Chicken and Black Bean Salad

Lunch looked VERY unappetizing! And NOTHING like the picture. I ate most of it… because I’m dedicated to the diet and didn’t want to throw something away the first day, but it was gross! I had to add a ton of salt to it! There were lots of chunks of unidentifiable meat floating around in it. The beans were not completely cooked. They were almost crunchy! Also, it was extremely spicy, and not in a good way! I will NOT be ordering this lunch again!

DINNER:

BBQ Chicken Breast with Roasted Red Potatoes and Corn

Dinner was delicious! I added salt, and some horseradish mustard, but it was VERY filling and good. The potatoes were my favorite part. I also had three serving of fruit and two servings of dairy saved up from the day, so I had two fruits, and both the dairy servings for dinner.

I had ¾ cup of blueberries, and 1 ½ cups strawberries, sprinkled with Splenda. And I had 1 cup of cottage cheese.

DESSERT:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

That’s right! Cookies! On a diet! And they were yummy!

Overall my first day on the diet was a success! I only managed to drink 4 ½ glasses of water though. I am working on it! I consumed a total of 1097 calories for the day. The only exercise I had was walking at work, but I wore a pedometer and found out that I walked a total of 4.4 miles!! Amazing, huh?

So that was my first day! Tomorrow is going to be even better!
