Zone Day Three – Entry for May 20, 2009


Day 3

2:10pm Breakfast was a Western Style Omelet with Turkey, Ham and Potatoes (This was really good.)

Lunch was Vegetable Ratatouille with Baked Chicken Breast and Garlic Toast (could have been better maybe if they had included Remy.)

Although still dealing with being hungry I do definitely notice that I have more energy and in general feel better. Plus side of being hungry at night is that by going to bed earlier I am more alert in the morning and getting up for work is easier. And star for me I have already managed to 6 servings of water today. Pretty soon I hope to no longer have to think about remembering to do so and it will just become a habit.

10:10pm Dinner wasChili Rubbed Beaf Steak with Candied Sweet Potatoes and Feta Cheese. (definitely not my favorite meal)

71 days to go


Zone Day Two – Entry for May 19, 2009

1:16pm Day Two

Breakfast was Cinnamon French Toast with Turkey Sausage, Raspberry Syrup and Scrambled Egg Whites

Lunch was Turkey Chili with Black Beans and Oyster crackers

Found out today I am doing this a bit wrong. You are allowed two snacks per day so I thought I would be extra good and not eat the snacks. Turns out it’s not just allowed but you are supposed to eat the snacks to stay in the “Zone” and avoid becoming so hungry that you don’t have the urge to overeat or snack on something you shouldn’t. Going to stop off at the market on the way home from work and pick up some approved snacks. It’s mainly bits of low-fat or skim cheese (cottage cheese included), fruits and nuts.

Doing good with the water bit. Made it to 4 8 ounce glasses yesterday and will try to do better today.

10:15pm Dinner was Chicken Breast with Whole Wheat Pasta Marinara w/ Parmesan Cheese

Had a little snack of three olives which is allowed!!! Yeah I LOVE olives. Think I will go to be a bit early again. I am working on occupying myself with different things so I don’t cheat when I feel hungry but I am feeling weak so bed it will be.  72 Days to go. 


Zone Day One -Entry for May 18, 2009

1:42 pm So Day One on the Zone Diet.

Breakfast was French Toast with Scrambled Egg Whites.

Lunch was a Turkey Pastrami Rueben on a Whole Wheat Wrap.

So far so good. I am having the food delivered from Chefs Diet and I have to say so far it’s pretty tasty especially for dieting. Lunch didn’t taste like healthy diet food at all. Much better and more satisfying than grazing on salad so that should help me stick to it. Figure if I write about the experience on here that will help me stick to it as well. Who wants to tell the world they have earned a colossal fail. Not I.

10:10pm Dinner was Roast Pork medallions, barley pilaf, and green beans. Barley pilaf was really good. Pork was as good as it’s going to be coming out of a microwave and I hate green beans ( ate them anyway though). Had to have a cup of tea around nine because I am HUNGRY!!! But that will pass in a day or two. (I hope.)  Trying very hard to not think of this as a diet but as a change in my lifestyle that will ultimately make me a happier  and healthier person. (who fits back in all their clothes)

Think I am going to go to bed early so I don’t visit the kitchen. My willpower is weak but 1 day down. 73 to go.
