Medifast Journal Day #13

Well today was a fun filled day. Took the family to visit my parents and celebrate a belated Mother’s Day along with my wife’s birthday. We took a picnic to the local park and I managed to resist snacking on all the lovely picnic items. I took the Cheese Pizza Bites and that sustained me, until we decided to walk along the bike path for about 1.5 miles.

I use an app on my android phone called Runkeeper which uses GPS along with google maps to plot your activity (walking, running, biking, canoeing, what have you) which showed about a 100 calorie burn during that time.  This is really the first time I’ve exercised more than my normal daily activity since I started on Medifast and I immediately noticed the hunger about an hour afterwards.  I had eaten my 2pm Medifast Meal and then we went for the walk, by 4pm I was starving and not going to make it to my Lean & Green so I opted to take my 5th Medifast Meal which is normally around 8pm at 4pm.  This turned out well as we decided to eat out for my wife’s birthday at Red Lobster.

We didn’t get a seat until about 6pm but because I ate at 4 I was only slightly hungry.  It was hard to find something that fit the plan that I liked but I opted for salad along with grilled chicken, scallops and shrimp.  I’m sure I ate a bit more protein (maybe 8oz total) than I should have but it was a special occasion.  For dessert everyone had homemade ice cream and pecan pie at home.  The temptation proved too much and while I managed to avoid the ice cream I had to have a tiny sliver of pecan pie.  When I say tiny I mean it was pretty much a forkful but it was good enough to get the taste and craving behind me.  I know I’m going to have these small setbacks from time to time but when you are around family in a party atmosphere I felt giving in a little was better than going whole hog off the deep end.

Tomorrow we plan on canoeing and I’m going to bring a few extra crunch bars for energy if I need it.  Should be fun.
