For six days this week (Mon - Sat) I am following Jillian's Michaels kickstart meal plan for the Body Revolution to kind of get me on a track to healthier eating. I have decided if I can fast I can stick to a healthy eating plan.
So, basically this is a no-sugar, no grains week. My only "cheat" is that I decided after two days of coffee with no sugar to add my one packet of sweet n low back in to a cup of coffee. I also use half-n-half, which is not on her plan. I just decided it's my one thing that won't change, so I'm okay with it. She does suggest only two mugs of coffee a day and I'm abiding by that.
It's been interesting so far, but good too. The meals do not all include favorite foods of mine (I tried brussel sprouts last night), but I decided I could do anything for a week. :)
I'm pushing out of my comfort zone and as I'm staying away from sweets, tracking my calories and trying healthier foods I keep thinking, "So this is what it's like to actually stick to a plan!!!" :D
