*Quick check in*

So I wanted to share the news of my weigh in after these 4 days. I lost a total of -3.6 pounds!!
Side note: I still need to lose about -1.4 pounds to get back to where i was a couple of weeks ago..grrrrr I hate back tracking!

Day 4 of Anti-bloat Jumpstart

So the one thing you learn when dieting is that when your home all day long is very easy to plan out your meals, but once you step out and go somewhere and don't know where the day will lead ya it's hard to get your 3 meals plus a snack in at just the right times. I learned that today. Well actually I new that along time ago, it was just different when on my 4 day cleans. So I got up and had my breakfast but not till almost noon. We were outside enjoying the snow one last time before it melted and well I was burning off some much needed calories by having a snowball fight with the fam. So anyway I lost track of time and well Breakfast came late but here is what I had......
1 cream of wheat packet
1 handful of raisins
1 cup of milk
Note to Self: not a big fan of cream of wheat!
So of course we were out and about and all of us starving so we went out to dinner with the in-laws, we went to a buffet so at least I had choices. So this was around 4-5:30ish so I made this my lunch and dinner...oh and I did have a string cheese earlier as a snack.
On lunch/Dinner menu:
About a 1/2 cup pot roast
Steamed carrots
sauteed green peppers & onions
a dab of mashed potatoes ( and i mean a dab!)
a half of corn on the cob
unsweet tea to drink

I did go for seconds but I just had more sauteed veggies and a small boneless rib and a roll & NO DESSERT!
So I am kinda bummed as to what i will see on the scale regarding this but I really didnt do to bad, my times were just off and while I should have had chicken there just wasn't any on the buffet that wasn't fried.

So tomorrow is the big day, I will weigh in and see how these 4 days have treated me...Ohh the suspense!!

Day 3 of Anti-bloat Jumpstart

So day 3 is upon us, if I had to state my current mood I would give a 4/5 which is ok. I feel great!
So today's breakfast...
1 cup if Corn flakes
1 cup of milk
2 tbs raisins
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
( just between you and me, I will be glad not to eat sunflower seeds for quite a while )
For lunch, I mixed it around a bit, it wanted me to eat the pint of tomatoes again and there was just now way, so i heated up the left over green beans from the fridge, worked out just fine.
4 oz Deli chicken
1 cup green beans
1 low fat string cheese
And for dinner I mixed it up again, I had to have a 1/2 cup of noodles ( with a little olive oil ) because I forgot to cook the rice, I was trying to cook my dinner along with everyone else's.
6 oz Chicken breast
1/2 cup noodles
1 cup yellow squash sauteed( yummy!)

I forgo-ed the smoothie tonight because I just wasn't diggin it, after tomorrow I will start to use fresh fruit instead of frozen, that way i will get a bunch more flavor and it's natural sugars.
Now your probably wondering what i will do after the 4 day cleans, well now you can have a variety of stuff, the main goal is to keep each meal at 400 calories & your snack. So that is what I intend to do. So wish me luck! I will weigh in Tuesday morning to see what my results are for these past 4 days. :)
