Today’s motivation

I’m sooooo anxious for this section of the diet to finish to I can get back to things like, oh I dunno….carrots and corn! Who knew those would be the things I miss! And my fruit smoothies!  I made the most awesome smoothie last week and I barely took a few sips just to taste. I’ll share that recipe soon it was so yummy. Munchkin (my 17month old daughter) loved it and she doesn’t normally like my smoothies!

Anyway I went on the scale this morning and it didn’t move. I need a digital scale to make sure but I was disappointed because the diet promises a pound a day. Right now I’m watching Ina Garten on the food network make smores. OMG Paula Deen just came on *switches channel immediately* I can’t deal with Paula “stick o butter” Deen.

So after I wrote them two paragraphs I couldn’t take it anymore so I went up and got food. I was starving. Up to that point, this was all the food I had had:

you can see my din din in the background

2 boiled eggs, 4 slices of tomato and 4 whole wheat crackers

Yeah so needless to say I was so starving. My lunch of eggs was great but did nothing to fill me up. I didn’t know 4 slices of tomato was only 17 calories, next time I’ll have the whole tomato. One serving of Crix crackers is 60 calories, so I only had one serving which is 4 crackers. 120 calories on just crackers alone (which isn’t allowed on this diet) was too much to cheat with.

This is the dinner I just had: 
baked chicken, broccoli and cauliflower

I do quite like the veggies but I don’t want to get tired of them so I can’t wait for the diet to be over so I can mix and match some more. Apparently spinach makes a good raw salad, has anyone ever tried that? Because cooking spinach is a slimy ordeal. Yuck. But it is one of the few veggies allowed on this diet and I dont wanna have a salad of just lettuce and cabbage alone…

So I had dinner maybe an hour ago and I’m hungry right now yes, but I’m not dying. I can make it till 8 when I have my second fruit of the day (another apple) and my HCG. I’ve had 7 glasses of water for today so far. Maybe I’ll make it to ten, if not then 8 will do.
Here’s my spark diet breakdown for today: (i’ve added the apple I plan to have at 8pm.)

Only 717 calories! I have to say that the diet is a little scary at these numbers. I really hope it works as it says it will and I won’t go into starvation mode and retain. And this is with cheating on the diet because egg yolks aren’t allowed, neither is crackers or the garlic I used to season the chicken….
Tomorrow is another day, see you then!
