Day 3 - Tracy Anderson's 30 Day Method
As with the last three days my thought of the day is "HUNGRY!!!!" I have tried sooo many different diets over the year and this is the hungriest I have been by far. As a bonus I am in a total foul mood. My only motivation carrying on to continuing is that I have lost 2.4 lbs in two days. Yee Haw!
Today I pretty much stuck with the Tracy food plan. I had my planned lunch for breakfast which was the minestrone soup. For lunch I knew I was going out so I ordered an egg white veggie omelet with none of the good stuff that I would normally order. I did stray on the snack. I was supposed to have the choco chestnut pudding but didn't have time to make it before I had to pick up my daughter from preschool so I had the my famous Siggi's yogurt. Dinner was poached tilapia with steamed broccoli. And yes as I type this I am dreaming of jumping cupcakes and skipping sugar cookies.
I have not done a bit of exercise today. I'm about to do the cardio component because in her book Tracy says that for weight loss cardio trumps the mat work. Hopefully tomorrow I will get both the meals and the exercise back on track while writing three (yes 3!) essays for nursing school! But this is day to day life so I need to learn to adapt better.
Lessons from Today: Hunger makes you willing to do almost anything for a satisfying bite of something delicious! I now truly believe that food can be addictive. Maybe I need food rehab!
Day 3 - Meals (With My Variations)
Breakfast - Tomato Minestrone Soup
This is a repeat for me. It was surprisingly comforting as a breakfast food! May have to switch my breakfast and lunches more often.
Lunch - Egg White Veggie Omelet from The Egg & I
This was really good. I tried to make it as pro Tracy as possible. I asked for little oil to be used and it seemed like they listened.
Snack - Siggi's Yogurt Pomegranate & Passion Fruit
Are you noticing a trend here?
Siggi's Yogurt Blueberry
Dinner - Poached Tilapia with Steamed Broccoli
This was easy to make and really good. Fairly filling although it doesn't fill the cravings that I am having.
