Mayo Clinic Diet: Day 1
Bear (my wonderfully sweet, unselfish boyfriend) spent the weekend helping me come up with a great weekly planner for the diet. Both being excel nerds it was tweaked several times and included fancy formulas:
The article in Marie Claire (found here) that spawned my desire for my first ever attempt at a real diet mentioned that planning would be necessary but man was it a time commitment this weekend.
We spent a lot of time deciding on the dishes and then shopping for them. We also prepped as much as we could (considering my laughable kitchen skills).
So far, I’ve lost 7 pounds. Kidding.
So far I’ve had way more fruits and veggies than I would in a normal day and am craving Chik-Fil-A like you read about. BUT, I’m determined to stick it through. I don’t expect to magically turn into a fruit and veggies gal (I love my chicken and cheese and potatoes) but I am hoping my overall energy level and motivation and mood will be lifted by the healthy lifestyle in addition to the loss of the pounds.
