I woke up this morning excited about this experiment in portion control.
For breakfast, I carefully measured out a red container (3/4s of a cup) of yoghurt (Greek, 2%) and a purple container (1cup) of mixed berries. I then took a teaspoon and topped it with a mix of coconut, hemp hearts, and chia seeds (1/4 of an orange, I believe).
It was delicious and quite filling. Ray and I sat in our sunroom and sipped coffee and Bird stared at us longingly from his spot outside on the patio until we let him in and gave him breakfast.
I didn’t adequately food prep and this morning was busy, so around noon I drank a chocolate shakeology (red) with plain water.
I came home hungry, but I wanted to get my first workout in. Total body cardio with Autumn.
I’m still shaking.
I did all the exercises for the full time Autumn said to while I focused on pushing myself while keeping my form. I need to get the weights they recommend. Even without weights it was still hard, though. I was definitely sweating, breathing hard, and I couldn’t talk.
After my workout, I made dinner.
I sautéed the green onions and garlic in 1 t olive oil after water sautéing the bok choy. I seasoned it with 1 t sesame oil, 1 t sesame seeds, 2 t fish sauce, and 2 t rice wine vinegar. In hindsight, I wish I had toasted the sesame seeds.
I swept the house while talking to my friend Melissa (who is also doing beach body), and I finally unpacked from my girls’ weekend (this week has been so crazy)!
7:30 Snack: my final gray (1 t almond butter) and 1 purple (cherries)
Now I’m going to walk a bored and petulant Bird and listen to a podcast.
Update: After my walk, I had a snack of blackberries (1 purple), feta cheese (1 blue), and a teaspoon of chia seeds, coconut, and hemp hearts (1/4 orange).
Then I had 4 ounces of red wine (a yellow) which you can do 3 times a week.
So if I have done my math right for the Plan B diet, I still have
- 2 greens (so two servings veg)
- 2 yellows (2 servings of carbs)
I hope I’m doing this right!
I also have a lot of water to drink before bed– I need to have about 10 cups to meet my quota.
I’ve also got some massive food prep to do. We have a ton of vegetables that must be eaten– it’s CSA season!
All in all, a great day 1.
