Day One - Easy to it seems.

So it's only 9:12 in the morning. I patted myself on the back for going and getting an herbal tea this morning instead of my regular black tea (in which I put 4 sugar packets and 1/2 and 1/2). Instead, I got a cinnamon herbal tea with skim milk and 2 packets of the brown cane sugar. Not the usual taste, but I will MAKE myself get used to it. So far I've eaten a hardy portion of oatmeal (the 3/4 cup instead of the 1/2 cup), with 2 tbsp. fat free 1/2 and 1/2, 2 tsp. of sugar and cinnamon. Eventually I'd like to nix the sugar but that will take time.

I've planned out my lunch AND dinner for today...which is another thing I commend myself for. But the real test will be around 2pm today, when my craving for crap kicks in. Later in the day is my worst time, but it's only day one, how bad could it possibly be? We shall see.

I will post later in the day today, to let you know just how good I've been *lol*. Hope all of you are doing well!!! I'm so happy I'm starting to get some followers, it makes my posts seem all the more worth it:)


  1. Hey girl!! Glad you did some pre-planning...just make sure you plan for the 2pm snack time, too!!! Have you ever tried Stevia? It's natural, made from sugar I think, but has 0 calories. That's what I use in my coffee now and it wasn't a hard switch at all for me...give it a try!! :)

  2. Little steps along the way is really the way to do it and make these changes permanent. And knowing what and when your weaknesses are is a big step too. Keep up the great work!
    I'm still working on the sugar thing myself, and 3:00p.m. is my muncho fest time. It does help being prepared I find. Good luck with it!

  3. Just checking on you girl...haven't seen a post in a while. Hope you're doing well! :)

  4. It's me again!! Email me and let me know how things are going....haven't seen a post in quite a while...getting worried about you! :)
