And So The Journey Begins....

Like a prisoner headed for the electric chair, I made sure my last meal was a good one, topped off with nothing else but a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Flurrie.

And after that, I really felt gross and ready to get started.

Monday: Day 1
This morning's breakfast was a success that included GoLean Crunch cereal and coffee, as well as the difficult avoidance of picking at my son's unfinished muffin (apparently the oatmeal, sausage, and blueberries were enough for him...).

My first roadblock came care of Mother Nature, whose dose of rain put a crimp in my daily walk fulfillment. Never one to let anything derail my best intentions, I hit the exercise bike in the basement while the kids enjoyed some nice playtime in a place usually reserved for afternoons that never seem to end.

The rest of the early afternoon flew and it wasn't until I was preparing the Boca Spicy, Meatless, Chicken Patty lunch that I realized I forgot the mid-morning snack. The lunch actually filled me, along with the constant water drinking.

Needless to say, I am off to my typically strong and determined start that I only hope lasts longer than the first few weeks.

I have also managed to find the Dr. Oz required support partnet: Shout out to Stacey. Having secured her support, it also occurred to me that there may be others out there that have done Dr. Oz, are starting Dr. Oz, or are considering Dr. Oz.

If that means you....feel free to join in through the comments...I'm so curious to see how well this works for others.

And now for some Green Tea while the kiddies sleep....

I'm into the OZ as well, today is also day one. My waist is OK according to the good doc, but I too want to adopt a healthier way of eating and grocery shopping. NOW, the kids and my man are protesting a little, but I'm not going to kill them with whole wheat. (Just me).

I had a slice of whole wheat toast and peanut butter and coffee for breakfast (blah...I hate peanut butter). Had a meeting at work and snacked on a handful of almonds and a little fruit. For lunch I had a boca burger with tomato, red onion on a lt. whole grain english muffin...still working on a dinner plan.
