McDougall Program Day 7 - the funcrunch files


Nov. 7th, 2008 09:25 pm McDougall Program Day 7

Morning weights: Julie 141, Ziggy 191

Julie breakfast: Oatmeal with banana, strawberries, and almond milk; herbal tea with sugar and almond milk

Ziggy breakfast: Herbal tea; cereal with almond milk; pineapple

Julie lunch: Cucumber-bean-onion salad; pasta-bean-tomato casserole

Ziggy lunch: Same as above, plus black tea

Julie snacks: Whole-wheat toast with strawberry jam; hot cocoa

Ziggy snacks: Black tea; hot cocoa

Julie dinner: Pasta-bean-tomato casserole; whole-wheat bread; vitamin water

Ziggy dinner: Soup; pasta-bean-tomato casserole

Exercise for both: Approx 1 hour (slow-ish) walking in Prop 8 protest march. I did another 30 min walk getting to the start of the march.

Feelings: I felt more energized today, partly as I was looking forward to getting out of the house for the Prop 8 march. I'm amazed that I've lost four pounds at the halfway point on this diet, as that's more than I expected to lose for the entire 12-day period. Again, it might just be water weight; Ziggy lost four pounds the first day and gained two back the next. Regardless, I'm liking the food, enjoying cooking, not feeling deprived, and plan to stay the course. Ziggy isn't enjoying the diet nearly as much, and has cheated on caffeine a bit, but wants to stick it out with me till the end.

*wondering what part of the almond produces the milk, and who they hire to milk them*

I said to Jeff on the way home, and then realized I'd told you in person, that when I hugged you goodbye, I could tell you were thinner. You look really great.

Aww, thanks so much :-) Down another 1/2 pound today - marching is good for the body as well as soul!
