Day 1 complete!

This morning I was eager to get this diet started. I decided that my eating schedule will be 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm. I woke up this morning and cooked up my first meal. 3 egg whites, one whole egg, 1 serving of oatmeal, 1 tsp flaxseed meal and splenda. I like cooking this all together you get a nice big bowl of oatmeal. No complaints at all with this meal. Love it!
10 am I had this. I had never had this before and I picked it up at Costco. Has 30g of Protein and it tasted quite good. I had this before we head over to a get together put on by the Truman State University Alumni for Illinois student who would be attending Truman this year. It was nice to be able to see others students, parents and also to asked the alumni some questions. We were sorry that our son was not able to attend with us. I started getting pretty hungry about 12:30 and was happy that my husband wanted to stopped by Best Buy before heading home. I was able to keep my mind off the fact that I was pretty hungry.

Came home and made up a nice big chicken salad. I cooked the chicken up in some homemade taco seasoning that I make that has not salt. I have always enjoyed this salad won't have a problem eating this either. I had a very productive after noon. I made some oatmeal cookies, and a dinner for one of our neighbors. He was kind enough to come over yesterday and help my husband with our sons car. Since he is a divorce guy living alone I thought it would be nice to make a meal. So I cooked up some oatmeal raisin cookies, pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon and rice with peas. He was surprised when I rang his door bell with dinner. Sure hope he enjoys it!! I loved doing it so it was no big deal to me. Hubby and I went to the store and got grocery for the week and when we got back it was time for meal number #4.

My girlfriend called and we caught up on things and before I knew it meal #5 for was here.

Since I need to have three fish meals a week I thought I would have them on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. So I cooked up some tilipia with lemon pepper seasoning in a nonstick skillet spray with cooking spray and had salad with ranch dressing.
My belly is happy and I have a few more things to do before I can rest for the evening. I was hoping to make some ice cream cookies for my son when he comes back on Tuesday. Tomorrow my day is full and I won't have time to make them so I was hoping to be able to do that tonight. I have my book group tomorrow and I need to read over the chapter and answer the question so I am prepared. I also need to make sure that all my meals are in place for me tomorrow.
So I am out of here to getting things in order. It was a great first day and I am feeling good.
I am also going to try to get hubby to take some picture tonight and hope to post them tomorrow.

Well done for getting over that initial hurdle. That is a key thing, and thne of course comes the consistency.

I'm know you're going to be fine getting that side of things to stick.

Good luck and best wishes.
