Day 4 of Attack Phase

September 29, 2010

So I figured out that if I stayed under 1600 calories a day that I should be able to at lose at least 2 lbs a week or 1200 calories a day to lose at least 3 lbs a week. I am going to try to stick to under 1600 a day for now until we get to the protein/veggie days since veggies have less calories.

What I ate:
11 am: 1.5 cups of 99% egg white
            1 hebrew national 97% fat free hotdog
            4 slices of turkey bacon
            1 slice of canadian bacon
            1 slice fat free american cheese 
            (I scrambled it all together to make a huge breakfast because I was so hungry!)
             coffee with fat free creamer and fat free milk with splenda
3 pm: 4 oz of prosciutto wrapped with low fat mozzarella
5 pm: 3 oz of black forest uncured ham
6 pm: 2 chicken breasts (12 oz) marinated in fat free greek yogurt and curry spices overnight, awesomeness!!!
8pm: 4 oz of fat free greek yogurt
         1.5 tbs of oat bran
         4 oz of sugar free jello

I really need to stop consuming so much sodium! I guess I should stop eating deli meat and turkey bacon. But it is so good!

I worked out at the gym last night. I did 35 minutes on the elliptical for about 4 miles and about 35 minutes on the bike for 5 miles. Felt awesome! I didn't get too tired either. I'm guessing I burnt around 500 calories?
So why did my weight go up?? I only had 1500 calories!! And I worked out!! I gained .2 lbs, now for a total loss of only 7 lbs. I am not going to eat as much sodium today, no turkey bacon! :(

Side effects:
still have to pee A LOT
I am starting to notice that I have more energy!!!
