Diet Beta Test Day 2

Happy Hump Day! I hope you’re all enjoying your week. Welcome to Day 2 – which is week two but last week was a lot of prep and decision making about how this journey was going to go. I also did some soul searching about how I was going to approach this topic writing and how I would best honor myself and the creators of the Diet Beta Test. So I’m going to lay the groundwork out here in this post and on and off down the road just to make sure we’re all clear.

1. I will not be sharing any of the materials from the diet beta test. If I did not create the information, infographics or text, It will not be posted here. If you’re looking for freebies – sorry you need to move on.
2. This journey is a story about me and my experiences, it may or may not fit with the information you know about yourself, your experiences or beliefs. I share it with you as a labor of love and exhibitionism on my part. Please do not try to take anything I write hear as gospel for yourself, please do not think it will work for you or that I am preaching a way of life for you to follow. That is the key and beauty of the Diet beta test, it is highly personalized to each individual and will be different for every person that tries it.
3. I will be posting daily in any combination of blogs, vlogs recipes, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook posts (, etc.), if I reference anyone posts, I will make sure to link back to the information and give credit to the originator as best as I can. If I do not and it is your work, please contact me, and I will make sure to correct/update the information.
4. I’m excited about sharing this journey with you, I hope you are too.
On to Day 2 –
Today hasn’t been all that bad; I’m still adjusting to drinking my coffee later in the morning, so far it hasn’t been too bad. I’ll have to see how I feel about it on the weekend though, I’m very used to waking up and leisurely drinking my coffee in bed as I check my social media. Breakfast was around 9:30 – again yogurt, strawberries, and pecans – can’t mess with a good thing as far as I’m concerned. Lunch was around 1:30 – I had roasted creamy asparagus and roasted garlic soup, with a small mixed green salad and avocado. We had grilled marinated chicken and veggies, for dinner tonight, Stevie wrapped his up in a tortilla with hot sauce, he thought it was rather tasty.

All in all, I’m feeling pretty good today, I wasn’t overly hungry or tired; I went to bed around 10:30 last night – got up around 6. I woke up at 5 and should have gotten up then; I ended up taking my mask off (CPAP) and going back to sleep which meant weird dreams and a small headache when I decided to get moving. I’m a little bloated/gassy from the vegetables, but that’s normal for me, I know asparagus does it, and frankly, I’ll deal with that – I love asparagus and will eat it until it goes out of season. Tonight I’m not sure what caused it – maybe the grilled onions? I’ll have to see. I didn’t even miss not having a grain with dinner, nor did I feel like I needed to eat the entire house when I got home, so I must be getting enough fat in, to make me feel satiated. I’m up to 85-90 oz of water today, but again it’s 81 degrees in my house at 8:30 – did I mention my husband does Air Conditioning for a living? I do feel better this go round; I’m not sure if I have a different expectation of what’s to come or a better understanding of my body and how it reacts. I know last time day two I was panicking about not having enough variety to eat and craving/missing carbs. Don’t get me wrong I’m still missing fruit something fierce, but I think I’ll work on balancing some of them into the test as we go along instead of feeling deprived and resentful.

Here’s a quick shot of me (have I mentioned I hate these) and my numbers for the day:
