The Last Week of this 28 Day Cycle

It is hard to believe that I have already completed 3 weeks of this eating plan.  Today is the first day in the final week of the Fast Metabolism Diet, which lasts 28 days.

I am 11 lbs lighter than when I started.  I am sleeping better and I am feeling good.  I have strayed from the eating plan a few times but would say that I have been true to it at least 90% of the time. I am leaving on a 2 week vacation on Monday so, while I will still try to be conscious of what I am eating and make good choices, I am not going to keep strictly to the eating plan.  I will start up another 28 day cycle when I return home.

I have decided, that for this last week, I am going to check in with you each day.  I will share one meal from that day and what, if any, activity was included in the day.  I am starting with a Phase 1 breakfast:  Puffed Rice Cereal topped with peaches and rice milk.  A great start to the day.

I'm hoping that Frank and I can get out for a hike today but he has some things to do around here and then we have a meeting this afternoon.  Hopefully we will have time in between but if not we will go for an after dinner walk to get our cardio requirement for this carb heavy phase of the eating plan.

Have a Marvelous Monday!!
