I realized today that I gave up a lot more than just sugar and flour for my March experiment. I’ve also given up caffeine because I’ve never been a coffee drinker and all my usual beverages are out. Luckily for me, I haven’t been a huge soda drinker and we rarely had it in the house before this month, so I’m not trying to kick a soda addiction too.
Eating after midnight, which has become the norm for me after getting off work at 1am is out also. My goal is to try and get my body back to a normal daytime schedule, which means no late night snacking and instead, getting to bed early so I don’t sleep the morning away.
Finally, I’m attempting to increase my water intake to reach a more recommended level. Granted, I’m nowhere near what “experts” (and my wife) think I should be drinking each day, but I’ve tripled my intake, so I’m good with that for now.
What I ate today.
Finished up my eggs and Kielbasa this morning, then moved on to a banana around 1PM. Had another boring salad for lunch, so I’ll have to figure out something better soon. Dinner was delicious with my wonderful wife making a seasoned boneless chicken stuffed with broccoli in a cheese sauce, with sweet potato rounds sprinkled with a little cinnamon and nutmeg. If you aren’t eating sweet potatoes regularly, then you’re missing out.
On to day three.
