I haven't been as hungry these past 2 days as I usually am. It could be because 1. I started having a salad with lunch or 2. my supplement routine, to which I most recently added 800 mcg chromium picolinate (from Walmart) and 1500 mg l-carnitine (also from Walmart). I am sooo not hungry and have no cravings for sweets (especially those yummerific chocolate coconut Atkins bars).
For dinner tonight I made the brocolli quiche from Linda Sue's wesbite, substituting parmesan cheese for the cheddar. SO GOOD...My parents and I ate the whole thing tonight!
I just got Jillian Michal's book Winning by Losing....I also have her other book 30 Day Cut or something similar...I was looking for a comprehensive gym routine tailored for weight loss, and her books totally cut it...So I am starting her exercise plan tomorrow. Some of her nutrition info is ok, but I am following Atkins. I plan to stay on induction until I lose 10% of my current weight.
I'm also going to do the goal-related activities in the self section. This goal outline is from chapter one.
*I want to lose 42 lbs
*I want to be fit and in shape
*I want to be attractive
*I want to be a size 2-4
*Go to the beach and walk around in a bikini

*I will stick to induction rules
*I will incorporate salads
*I will not blow off the gym/workouts
*I will go shopping and get a cute gym outfit
*I will go on a fancy-shmancy date with J
*My clothes will be looser

DAILY GOALS (FOR TOMORROW)
*I will stick to induction tomorrow

Phew, that took awhile. I'm kinda stressed at the moment, so hopefully I can get to bed at a decent hour and relax! I will try some deep breathing/tapping...
