Day One

I started the day with a glass of ice water. I then weighed and measured myself.  I am 41 years old. I am 5 feet 0 inches and my weight is 143.8 pounds, and my measurements are as follows:

  • Chest – 39.5
  • Waist  – 34
  • Hips – 40.5
  • Thighs – 23.5
  • Arms – 11.5

Sunday is one of the few days that Justin (my husband) and I eat breakfast together. I am a lover of just about all things french and when I see brioche bread I grab it up to make french toast!.  We soaked four pieces of bread in egg and a little bit of half and half and cooked it in about half a tablespoon of butter. We each had two pieces of the french toast. I also had about four ounces of orange juice and two cups of coffee. I usually measure my juice because it is high in sugar. I also include half and half and about one teaspoon of sugar in each cup of coffee that I drink.

I am lucky because I live in walking distance of a park with a nice walking trail. About 20 minutes after breakfast I walked to the park for about about 22 minutes which was a total of 1.05 miles.

For lunch I had a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich on whole wheat bread with olive oil mayo and a toasted coconut greek yogurt. I also had a glass of water.

For my 4:00 pm snack I had a ½ cup of cottage cheese with a mandarin orange cup. The cottage cheese has protein to help keep me full, and the sweet fruit pairs well with the salty sour taste of the cottage cheese.

For dinner we had tomato braised chicken thighs with olives and capers over polenta. We also prepared sauteed fennel with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese and a small glass of wine. For dessert we had a nectarine.

After dinner we walked for about 36 minutes for a total of 1.6 miles.
