Today, I am running very late. I will try for my next snack in 2 hours, then dinner 2 after that. Not the best schedule, but I’m sticking with it.

5:45 Snack. 1 scoop EAS protein powder. This curbed my hunger! Hooray!

8:00 Dinner. 5oz chicken breast, 1c broccoli, 1/2c brown rice, 1/4 onion, 1/2c scallions, 1T low-sodium soy sauce

Dinner, Day 15

Okay, friends! I’ve made it into Week 3 and haven’t gnawed my arm off out of hunger. This week is going to be tough, though. I’m down a lot of calories and have personal training Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. I know I’m going to be hurting, but I can tell I’ve lost pounds and inches already. My best guess is around 10 pounds so far and enough inches that my shorts will be falling off next week. I’m not sure when I’m weighing in, but I’m kind of hoping for tomorrow morning. I’d like to see the numbers. Also, I figured out that the block across the street from me is just about .5 mile. This morning, I did 3 laps. I forgot about timing since I ran into my neighbor and we chatted for a little bit when I was on my way home. I am planning to buy a stopwatch tomorrow so I can do a better job at tracking my personal progress. I also plan to add 1 lap every week until I get to 7 laps. That will cover the 5K that I will have to tighten up to a 4mph pace. Basically, I need to be able to do 6-7 laps in 45 minutes, which means I’m going to have to run some of it. This should get easier as I shed the pounds and my cardio improves. It’s still hard to get out of bed and walk, but I’m getting it done.
