HCG: Day 6
-1.6lbs. Yipee! The day started out pretty well, except I took a swig of Walt's orange juice without thinking....and my whole day sort of turned to pot! I think one of my big mistakes is that I didn't have any breakfast, which is okay on this diet, but for me it makes my day go by slower and I tend to eat more throughout the day. Russ had requested steak and potatoes for dinner tonight, so I carefully planned my dinner before I ate anything else. I was going to have 3/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese, 1 tomato, broccoli, 1 apple and 5 crackers. Then, I had an EAS protein shake, which doesn't actually fall into the category of 100% whey protein straight (with water only), but it was as close as I had. I drank that with a cucumber sliced and drizzled with rice vinegar and toasted sesame seeds. This is actually something I eat quite regularly, so it was nice to have something familiar. However, I then took a few bites of a buttered/garliced baked tortilla, 4 chocolate covered orange sticks, 4 whopper eggs (should throw out), a few pecans, 2 pieces of hard licorice, 4 small squares of dark chocolate with almonds, a handful of chocolate chips, etc., etc. I sort of went overboard!! A few hours later, I did fix dinner and ate my planned dinner without the crackers or apple. But then I ended the evening with a piece (or 2) of butter pound cake, raspberries and chocolate syrup. I know I cannot expect myself to be a perfect dieter, but I am disappointed by the amount I allowed myself to put in my mouth. I guess I was just craving and I really never could find what it was I wanted. That usually means that your body needs water, but I have had my 2 quarts and am on a cup of "herbal laxative" tea and the 3rd quart. Tomorrow is my "NO injection" day, so I think, depending on the scale in the morning, I may have a 5 apple day. Only time will tell - and for the record, I love Gala apples and eating them all day tomorrow actually sounds quite satisfying.
