It takes 21 days to create a new habit and since this is day 3, I’m 1/7 of the way there. :O) A bit of sarcasm there! Today was tough. I’m sticking to roughly 1000 calories a day for 7 days to kick start my diet and then I’ll go back to eating around 1500 calories next week. With all the walking I am doing–I’m only taking trains and buses when I absolutely am tight on time–and my low calorie diet, I have to admit I’m struggling, but I keep reminding myself of my ultimate goal. I want this badly. I want to change my life and be healthy, like my vegetarian husband who lost over 100lbs in one year.
Breakfast: Swiss Cheese Crepe with Mushrooms and Leeks
Lunch: Chicken with Zucchini, Roasted Peppers and Corn
Exercise: I exercised for an hour in a class in Times Square. I also walked 4 miles today, though I really wanted to just get on a train when I was walking past the skeevy mental hospital at 27th & 1st Ave at 9PM and was asked out by two very “unique” men, one who followed me the length of Bryant Park.
Snack: I was ready for a two mile walk after this low calorie chocolate muffin. I love how low calorie things are not nearly as filling as the real deal. I inhaled this little cake in two seconds, but at least I got a nice chocolate fix.
Dinner: Turkey with Roasted Red Peppers, Parsley and Celery
