Right now I am crunching spinach leaves. This week I've revamped what I eat and now eat the following each day:
- 2 cups of raw spinach
- 1 cup of raw carrots
- 1 cup of raw cucumbers
- 1 cup of raw green peppers
- 1 cup of raw tomatoes
- 1 cup of raw soybeans
- 1 cup of some other bean like garbanzo, black bean, kidney bean, etc.
- 1 cup of fish (salmon or tuna)
- 1 or 2 hard boiled eggs
- 1 apple
- 1 pear
- 2 cups of green tea
- A lot of water
The only bad thing I've had each day is one iced coffee from Starbucks. I want to stop doing that soon. It's just my one indulgence right now.
My body has been revolting with the change. It always does at first. I'm sure it will go back to normal soon.
What I wouldn't give for some pasta and bread though. I'm not a chocolate/potato chip snacker. My downfall is bread and pasta. I love milk as well, but am not drinking that either right now.
I checked and it's 1105 calories a day. I thought it would be less for some reason. I didn't realize how many calories garbanzo beans have and won't be eating those anymore.
I'm crunching a carrot while asking myself why it has to be so difficult. I also ask myself if it's worth it. I weighed myself Monday and was 253 pounds. I will weigh again next Monday to see if I've lost anything. I really want to weigh myself now but realize it wouldn't be a good idea. The only reason why I want to weigh is to experience instant gratification because right now this is so difficult. At the same time, if I do jump on the scales and don't see progress I'll want to rip my hair out and scream in frustration, so I'll just wait.
I think someone has a blog called, "Wait to Weight" or something like that. I completely understand what they mean now.
