i'm trying the 5:2 diet and today is my first day on the restricted calorie portion. my plan is to do multiple small meals throughout the day that i've already planned the night before so i can stay with the 500calorie limit for the restricted part of things.

the 5:2 diet is 5 normal meal days and 2 restricted calorie days (500 for women, 600 for men) the restricted days aren't meant to be back to back.

my work lunchbox has 300 calories in it (breakfast, lunch, snack) which includes:

2 cups berries
1 cup cucumbers
1/2 cup carrots
1 cup non-fat greek yogurt
1/2 cup salsa

so far i'm doing good. every thing is in finger food like portions so if i want to nibble i can. it's been a busy day at work so I haven't had time to focus on food overmuch.
i've been drinking unsweetened tea or water.

I took a baseline of my weight when i started on sunday and i'll see how i feel at the end of the week on whether this is something I want to try long-term.

I decided columbus day was a go day to weed through my shoe collection and donate some pairs to goodwill. Apparently, I have almost 40 pairs of shoes, which is kind of insane. I was trying on a few pair to see if I wanted to keep them or give them away and I noticed that my feet are narrower. I was wondering if this is a side effect of getting my diet & exercise on and losing a few pounds or if my shoes are just old a little stretched out. I'm thinking its a combination of the two, but still,its kind of trippy. My feet lose weight.

As of this morning I have officially lost 20 pounds!!!!

I'm trying to figure out a way to treat myself this weekend or what kind of gift to buy myself.
