Yesterday I actually was a little hungry twice. In the middle of the afternoon, I'd say around 2 pm, I thought, 'Oh hell no! I'm never going to make it until 6 pm to eat again!' On a scale of 0-10, with 10 being 'I'm so hungry I don't CARE if it makes me gain, I'm eating the first thing I find!' I was about a 5. But I didn't want to be a 10. So I had 1 oz. of pistachios.
Then, but the time I ate dinner, I was back up to a 4 or 5. I had a 100 g. burger, 10 spears of asparagus, and 1/2 grapefruit. I was good for the rest of the night.
I did not wake up hungry. I've now been up for hours and I've had two cups of coffee and about 24 oz. of water.
Sort of a repeat of yesterday as far as food goes, except the fruits were switched. Oddly enough though, I'm over-full now. I ate the dinner rather mindlessly. (I mean, what's to enjoy at this point?) When I got done with my apple, I realized I was too full. I still am.
The one difference is that I walked more and harder today. 10 incline; almost 4 miles. Yesterday, no miles, but I did do the hot tub (which I don't plan on tonight).
So. This is it. my 72 hours of continued VLCI. Tomorrow, cream in my coffee! Whoohoo! I will start counting calories and tracking exercise on the iPad, phone, computer or all of the above. The intent is to keep eating sort of what I am for the next few days, but I'll mix up the veggies.
But I'll start with the cream!
