The time after I get home from work will still be the biggest challenge for me I’m sure. I typically found myself able to snack on anything around 2AM, away from the prying eyes of my family, but I’ve decided that I will try to avoid eating so late in the evening during this experiment also. My best tactic for not eating after 1AM is flossing and brushing my teeth as soon as I get home. No one wants to eat after they go through the effort of brushing AND flossing. So far so good.
Meals today included scrambled eggs with turkey kielbasa and some cheese. Lunch was a boring salad with just lettuce, ham, cheese, and black olives, (I’ve never been a dressing guy, so that’s a win). Dinner was brautwurst, natural applesauce, and broccoli. Today was also the first day I drank over 100 ounces of water and it didn’t kill me.
Challenges for the upcoming weeks definitely include the possibility of becoming bored with the same foods over and over because I’m quite picky. I guess I’ll need to get over my pickiness pretty soon.
