It is day 2 of the old 5:2 diet plan. So far, so good. Although I’ll only measure my actual weight loss on a weekly basis, I did see that I dropped three pounds from eating so much less on Wednesday.
When I came home Thursday, I was pretty hungry, as my co-worker Dr. J had suggested. However, I drank a large glass of diet ginger ale and some water a little later on. I didn’t have any problems the rest of my sleep period as far as feeling hungry goes.
Thursday was a feast day according to the plan, so on my way to work, I stopped by Buffalo Wild Wings to score eight boneless mild wings, a basket of buffalo chips, and carrots with ranch dressing. Man, was that ever good, made better by the fact that I made it through my first fast day. ^_^
I brought in four Mega Stuf Oreos in, but I ended up not eating those until my late lunch, along with a Smart Ones lasagna bake with meat sauce (which wasn’t that tasty). That’s because I was a lot fuller after eating those wings than I usually feel. The frozen dinner wasn’t an attempt to limit calories, but rather a convenience item since I’d purchased quite a few of these kinds of meals for my fast days.
(As an aside, Mega Stuf Oreos are just pure evil. ^_~ )
For dinner, I’m thinking some tuna and crackers before hitting the sack. Since I’ll only have limited calories tomorrow, I figure that’ll help fortify me. ^_^; However, it will ultimately depend on how I feel when I get home.
