Today is Super Bowl Sunday. Today will be hard. I started off great this morning with Sunrise Soft Tacos. I am currently thinking about my first snack. I admit I am still constantly thinking about food and when I can eat again. I've learned about myself since starting this program 3 weeks ago that eating is my vice; I thoroughly enjoy it and living in New York City all the food is so delicious. Wherever you go you can't get away from it. Just walking down the street you see the restaurants and you smell all of the great food.

Achievements: I have lost 6 lbs. so far. I weigh myself once a week on Mondays so tomorrow is my day to see how much I hopefully lost this week! I do feel better about myself. I have more energy.

Setbacks: Last Saturday my husband and I went out to dinner with another couple it was hard to follow the healthy eating pattern I was so good at all week. The 7 Years Younger Program is not a diet, but a healthy way to eat for the rest of your life. My kids ask me how long will I be on this "diet" for and the truth is really forever. You truly can eat everything but the whole grain version and in moderation.

Tips/Takeaways: I am drinking my water and a trick I learned was to add Emergen C 1,000mg Vitamin C to the water, especially since we are in the middle of winter and the cold/flu season. I buy the lite packs which are only 5 calories each. Adding lemon, mint or cucumbers to the water also help. I definitely think my face looks brighter since eating all the right foods and drinking more water.

Another thing to do to follow the program easier is to shop a few days ahead of time to plan your meals. If you find yourself hungry and you don't have the right foods available you will be quick to grab something which usually will not be a good choice. I eat breakfast in the morning with my kids and then pack my first snack and lunch to take with me. This way after I go to the gym and I am starving I have something with me instead of waiting to get home or grabbing that bag of chips that I really want! Having the right food already with you makes you stick to the program.
