The Final Supper

So tonight is the final supper; the last food I shall eat before officially kicking off my SlimGenics journey tomorrow. My first three days I anticipate being hungry, though who knows. I have to eat the same thing for these first three days, called the prep days. However, I get unlimited portions of proteins, including, but not limited to:
  • Steak
  • Hamburger
  • Chicken
  • Shrimp
  • Turkey
I can also eat unlimited amounts of green veggies, so I see lots of snacking on green peppers, broccoli, snow peas and cucumbers in these three days.
I did LOTS of shopping today to buy all these healthy foods and I actually felt really good for the first time in a long time going through the check out line. It wasn't just that I wasn't buying junk food, because I've done that a lot. But usually, I'm buying a ton of frozen meals, etc. This time, it was healthy, fresh food. Fresh produce galore. And the best part? It all looks GOOD to me. Of course, I'm sure I'll get sick of it after three straight days, but at least it's food that I enjoy, like eggs for breakfast and oranges for snacks.

So tonight for my final meal, a some good friends are bringing over roast and loaded baked potatoes. YUMMY!! It's gonna be a meat and potatoes kinda night (of course topped off by watching Brett Favre and my Vikings ~ can't believe that's the first shout out I've given them, even though they have nothing to do with my journey, other than to hopefully make me smile for much of it!)

It's time to go enjoy some good friends, good football (I hope!!) and some good Minnesota food for the last time in about 10 months. Tomorrow will be the start of the journey towards a healthier, smaller me!!
