First day

So, on my first day of the South Beach Phase I diet, I managed to stay under 1200 calories! Which was not exactly the goal, but no complaints - I didn't get hungry or anything.

I had a nice breakfast of two scrambled eggs and a soy sausage link - trying to steer away from too much dairy and meats, which I always end up having too much of when I am on the SB diet... I used up my morning snack to treat myself to a latte - which Starbucks wants to convince me has 180 calories - what?!

I had a chicken thigh and sautéed kale for lunch, and half a container of yogurt later in the afternoon - I didn't feel like having the whole thing...

I had to go home and change before the gym... Which meant I didn't go to the gym at all. It was nasty out! It was cold and snowy and wet, so I decided to stay home and get some things done. So I straightened up, and made some awesome green juice! I put the rest of the grapes in it, so it's super sweet. I had a glass before dinner, then had some lentil soup with chicken.
