Day 12 - Ted (Saturday)

• 4 Eggs over medium - 2 whole, plus 2 egg whites
• Fruit Salad
• Coffee

• Greek yogart

• Grilled Chicken Garden Salad

• One grilled chicken tenderloin (boneless skinless chicken finger) with salsa
• Hot tea

• About 30 oz

Observations: Wow, Day 12 was the hardest so far.  Most of it was our fault however. I can only blame a portion of it on the diet. Weekends are tough for us. One of my favorite things to do on the planet is sleep a little later on the weekends, which throws off your body's schedule. That schedule is imperative to sticking to this diet. So try your best to keep the same schedule every day. I probably jinxed myself yesterday by saying that my cravings had been better than I expected, Day 12 was tough. I will say it was a hard day not because I was craving things I can't have as much as being hungry after dinner. Eating post dinner has always been an issue for me. We got up a little later and had brunch, then a late afternoon snack before meeting friends for an early dinner. So my food intake wasn't enough before dinner and wasn't spaced out very well. This I blame on myself. Lucy and I have eaten out three times since starting the diet. Met friends at an Irish Pub where we had grilled chicken salad. Not too difficult since we were separated from the rest of the crowd and wasn't subjected to seeing a lot of yummy food in the dining area. We went with a friend to Red Lobster one night and got grilled fish with steamed broccoli with salad, also not too difficult. But last night was a total kick in the head. We went to a family style Italian restaurant.  Huge bowls full of pasta, slices of New York style pepperoni pizza and warm Italian sandwiches. Part of the issue wasn't just the food, it was that I was so hungry going in and no amount of water, green tea and grilled chicken salad was going to fill me up. After dinner back at the house I needed something that didn't taste like lettuce and was disturbed at the lack of options. This part I blame on the diet. Eggs, sorry, no thank you. Veggies, nope, can't do it. Can't have fruit and probably shouldn't have yogurt. But I wanted something warm. I finally broke out that grilled chicken tender along with a few cups of hot tea. We then grabbed a late night movie with a few pieces of sugar free candy (go easy, sugar free doesn't mean calorie free.) Tough day, but we'll keep pushing though.

Also, Lucy is correct. I have not weighed yet. More on this later.

Anyone out there had a day so far that was significantly challenging?
