Survived my 1st day Of Jenny Craig
Well, it was not easy but I made it through a whole day. They say it takes 28 days to form a new habit. So I only have 27 more days to go.
This is my new journal I am going to use to keep track of my food intake and exercise each day. I typed up journaling sheets and made enough pages for the next 12 weeks along with a log to do weekly and monthly updates to show my progress.
So far, I found the hardest time of day to be when I was typing on the computer. I did not realize this is a snack time for me. As I was typing yesterday, all I wanted was something to nibble on. Chips, popcorn, anything. I settled on some cut up watermelon I had, but it was not the salty crunchy snack I was looking for.
Last night we went out to eat. Another tough area for me. I think I did well, though, I ordered the 2 grilled chicken breast with a side of broccoli and the grilled veggies. As soon as my plate came, I put aside one of the pieces of chicken to take home. I should have split the whole dish but I love veggies and ate every last bit of them. And I can proudly say I did NOT order a margarita with salt. Instead I tried an Ultra Light Cider (120 calories) it was pretty good, more cider tasting then beer tasting. I liked it.
So now I am on to Day 2. Off to a good start. Had my Jenny Craig Sunshine Sandwich. These are not bad by themselves, but a little salsa (free food) perked them up a little with my free coffee made w/splenda and FF creamer. I had that was about 2 hours ago and still not hungry.
Time to get off the computer and get a little exercise in for the day.
Until tomorrow. Here's to a healthy new me.
