I couldn’t have asked for a better first day back on plan. I know that my pre-planning helped, and a positive attitude didn’t hurt either.
My starting weight for this phase of my journey was 259.4lb. This morning, I was down 2.8lb and feeling great.
So what did my first day look like? Around 12:45, I ate my “breakfast” — scrambled eggs with bacon, mushrooms, spinach, pico de gallo, and cheese. Supper happened around 8:00pm. I had a burger salad (salad greens, pico de gallo, cheese, ranch dressing, and a chopped bacon cheeseburger) and called it a day.
According to cronometer, my macros were:
- Calories: 1605 kcal
- Fat: 135.3g
- Carbs: 17.7g
- Fiber: 4g
- Protein: 79.2g
I did feel the tiniest bit munchy at bedtime, but I really think that had more to do with the fact that other family members were snacking. A just refilled my water and went to bed.
I did have a bit of trouble sleeping last night, but I attribute that more to the pain I was dealing with last night. I experience random episodes of pain and swelling in various muscles and joints, and that happens regardless of how I eat. I can say for certain though that those episodes decrease when I’m eating a less inflammatory diet.
I’ll report on day two tomorrow!
