Leaving me with a Grand Total on Day 1 of:

- 1825 calories
- 50 grams of fat
- 239.2 grams of carbs
- 58.3 grams of protein

I ended up eating a bagel with peanut butter during work because Tim Hortons is the only thing open at Midnight. Tomorrow I'll just have to watch what I'm eating a little better.

Mood was stable all day but that's most likely because this is only Day 1. I don't expect immediate mood changes but it was nice to not have to deal with an emotional roller-coaster.

Only Day 1 but I wanted the chicken that everyone else was having for supper. I fully expect the cravings to get much, much worse. I really, really wanted cream cheese instead of peanut butter since that's what I always have on my bagels but the peanut butter wasn't that bad and it beat a protein craving. Beating a routine will be the hardest part of these 30 days.

Stirfry Veg & Salsa Egg Wraps and Sprouts
1 bag Frozen Asian Stir-Fry Medley (or suitable substitute)
3 eggs
Jar of Salsa
Alfalfa Sprouts
