I was able to go back on my regular schedule without any problems. I found out that my homemade rotisserie chicken makes for good chicken salad. I just chopped up several thighs and mixed it with mayo and gave a couple of shakes of both onion and garlic powder. I also ate the chicken skins as I was making the chicken salad. It really came out good and was very satisfying. I did end up taking a nap after I ate. I felt a little drained after I ate. I had a very busy day at work. Today I was put on a special assignment and had to do a lot of walking for several hours. It was all indoors, but I am a desk jockey for the most part and I am really out of shape. I guess taking walks would be good just to loosen up. I don't really know. I do live a very sedentary lifestyle. It's been 2 1/2 weeks so far and things are looking good. Everyday I have to remind myself to stay strong and stay the course. It is easy to get side tracked when I see people eating things I used to enjoy. A quick cure for that is to look at myself in the mirror. That disgusts me enough to take a second thought of eating that mess and ruining my progress. I know for sure that in the past I remembered reading about other people that tried zero carb a second, third or fourth time had a lot of difficulty. A lot of it had to do with not losing weight quickly or not having the same will power as they did previously. I don't want t suffer any of that, so I look at this mentally as my first try at the zero carb diet. I put the past in the past except for lessons learned and move forth. I will also give this new lifestyle as much time as it needs to have to enrich my well being. I know weight loss will eventually come as a result of being honest and giving this new way of eating time to soak in and take over. No movement on the scale today, nothing else to report.
