Day 61, 62 & 63 – Beginning of Phase 2

I have begun the second phase of my plan and I am enjoying it immensely! I have never enjoyed eating fresh salad, fruits and vegetables – it is an unbelievable transformation especially as my previous mantra was and to quote the great Homer Simpson – “you don’t win friends with salad!” I start my day with a juice, usually 3 apples, 3 carrots, leafy greens, lemon, an orange and ginger which gives me a nice boost and I also have 2 hard boiled eggs for their protein. At lunch I have 2 steamed chicken breasts with a large salad which consists of a lots of lettuce, carrot, cucumber, tomatoes, onion and pepper all chopped up with lemon drizzled over. For dinner I have chicken or salmon with steamed veg like mushrooms, courgette, egg plant, carrots etc basically anything low GI. Having been juicing for quite some time all this food is a welcome change and I have no desire at all to eat anything that is not healthy or part of the phase 2 eating plan. If I feel slightly hungry I have some fruit or some carrot or celery sticks – I am finding it ever so easy which is great! I am on autopilot once again!

I had a good weekend, Friday I relaxed which was great after a long working week. Saturday I ventured out and played golf with Raushana which was an excellent way to blow off steam, there is nothing better than spending time in the fresh air, relaxing and enjoying the company of your partner. To finish up the weekend I did some studying and then we had Raushana’s friend and daughter over for dinner which was great fun, lots of smiles and laughter.

Life is good and I am enjoying this weight loss and lifestyle change process. I feel healthy and motivated to continue my journey to attaining my goal. My first real test is going to be in 2 weeks time when my holiday starts, how am I going to juggle a wedding in Ibiza, a week long training course in a hotel in York and then a week with my brother in the States? I think there is going to be a lot of strategic planning and risk management preparation coming up!

  1. Well done so far, and if you are going abroad make sure that moderation is the key, eat anything you want but in small portions and moderation. 🙂 I will go abroad soon so even I have to make sure I don’t gain weight. Fingers crossed

  2. You are doing great! Make a plan for your holidays. Go with a plan. You may not stick to it completely, but at least you will have something to go by. By “plan” I mean, what do you plan on doing in certain situations, like the wedding?
    Just some advice from one who has to do some planning for social situations…
    Good luck…and good writing!

    • Thanks for the advice, my plan is to refrain from alcohol altogether as I know that one drink will lead to multiple which will lead to a sore head in the morning and then comfort food. If I stay dry I can keep my routine going which means I won’t miss my training sessions either 🙂
