Hello everyone!

Day 3 in the bag, although I did not do 100%, more like 90%.

4 slices of turkey bacon
1 medium apple
1 Tablespoon of coconut oil

Think Thin Caramel Fudge bar
2 bottles of low calorie Gatorade

Chicken breast seasoned with lemon juice and garlic, fat free pan spray
2 cups of steamed broccoli

3 Chinese almond cookies

Lately I have been hearing comments about my diet being too processed, etc.  I am aware that I am not eating 100% whole natural foods.  However, if I were to delve into that cold turkey, I am pretty sure that that is a recipe for failure as I have tried it countless times in the past.  Considering that I am coming from eating an entire pizza in one sitting, this is a vast improvement already.  Also, I honestly am not hungry eating these amounts of food.  For instance, I am not really a breakfast person nor do I usually eat on schedule, so the fact that I am eating breakfast and eating at almost the same time every day (8-8:30 am, noon, 5-7 pm) is saying something.  I have said before and I will say it again, I am taking Adderall (a medicine for ADHD) and it also greatly squashes my appetite.  The cookies were a little treat, took a lot of control to eat only three. 

Now on to my workout- I completed my muscular structure work for level 1 day 3 abcentric. I feel myself getting stronger and easier to keep good form but not easier to execute the moves (that's how it SHOULD be).  I also took a 30 minute walk today.  DC was cut short.  My knee began to bother me today and I also only got 4 hours of sleep the previous night. Therefore, I did do some dance cardio, but not 30 minutes. I actually popped in the DVD that comes with the 30 Day Method book which has 2 combinations that last 10 minutes and are a bit simpler moves than the cardio that comes with Meta.  I highly recommend that DVD for beginners/the injured/the tired who just want to get at least a few minutes in.

I also am sort of active in the community on Tracy's website (that you get access to for buying Meta).  A moderator from the TAM team even gave advice to someone who was having much difficulty with cardio and wanted to forgo it entirely and just do the MS- Do some cardio, even if it is just 5 minutes a day, and push yourself a little more each day. 

So, I made no excuses yesterday (even with a sore knee) and took care of business.
