Entry: 2nd day of my military diet - pros and cons Wednesday, March 09, 2016

i was a wreck on the 2nd day of my 3-day military diet. i was still hungry. i was a little weak. i didn't feel like doing any chore. and had no motivation to workout, not even do some walking.

i had to focus my mind on something else other than food. and whenever i pass by the kitchen, i would have to stop myself from grabbing a snack or something to munch on. damn those stick-os, barquillos and pringles sitting on the kitchen counter and those chocolates and juice boxes in the ref! it was a test of self-control, i tell you.

i was miserable. i still am. i think this is the longest week ever. in fact, yesterday, i thought it was thursday, when it was just tuesday! anyway, i was soooo miserable and grumpy that i even got into this huge fight with the husband. hay nako.

anyway, here's how my day 2 went:

day 2 breakfast - black coffee, 1 slice toast, 1 egg and 1 banana

day 2 lunch - 5 pcs crackers, 1 cup cottage cheese and 1 egg

day 2 dinner - 2 hotdogs, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup carrots, 1/2 banana and 1 cup vanilla ice cream

day 2 dinner is, so far, my favorite meal because there were hotdogs (not just one, but two!) and it was the most filling, i think.

by the second day i learned to appreciate small amounts of food on my plate. instead of wolfing it down as i expected because of hunger, i savor every bite. i probably ate my meals for 20-30 minutes. :) and it was a surprise that i still have energy. yes, i'm a little weak, but i was still able to do chores though i didn't feel like it. :(

and now i'm discouraging myself from stepping on the weighing scale to see how i've fared. #excitedmuch i should only weigh myself on the fourth day (tomorrow). hay. LAST 2 MEALS, YO!

*thinking of what to treat myself with tomorrow*
