SBD Challenge Day #2: Better Than Yesterday

Your first day on South Beach Diet is the hardest! Pero after 2-3 days you’ll feel better with the program. Like today, I feel better. Hindi na ako nagugutom o nag-iisip na gusto kong kumain ng ice cream o ng hopia. Haha! ‘Yung craving ko para sa mga sweet treats ay na-lessen na today. Yay!

Hindi naman talaga mahirap mag-SBD kapag determinado ka talagang pumayat. At para mas maging determinado ako, nagtu-throwback ako sa memory lane. Binabalikan ko ang mga pictures ko, 3 years ago, kung saan ang payat-payat ko pa na resulta din ng SBD ko dati. Kung wala ka namang pictures na payat ko, you can always look at the sexy photos ng idol mong artista for example. Then, set your goals. Tell yourself na after 6 weeks ay magiging ganyan ka din kapag pinagpatuloy moa ng SBD. Disiplina, determinasyon, at mindset lang naman ang kailangan mo para matapos moa ng buong programa ng SBD.

I started my day with a plate of burger! Yes! Pero ‘yung puwedeng burger sa SBD, ha. No fatty beef, no buns. ‘Yung lettuce, tomato, at cucumber na usual veggie na sinasama sa burger ay present. Ang absent nga lang ay ang buns (kasi carb ‘yun) at instead of ground beef I used sardines. Then, I had a 30-minute walk with my dog, Kiefer Jr. Nag-ikot lang kami dito sa lugar namin. Hindi ko kailangan mag-exercise kasi hindi naman requirement sa SBD ang exercise but still since naka-leave ako sa work, I want to maintain an active lifestyle. Kaya nga pag-uwi naming ay naglaba naman ako ng sangkatutak. Ayun, natagtag kaya bagsak sa kama. Haha!

Hindi ako nag-lunch kasi I slept the entire afternoon. I woke up mga 4pm na, I had 2 hard-boiled eggs then nagluto na ng dinner. FYI! Bawal na hindi mag-lunch, ha. Dapat nga 5 times a day ka kumakain sa Phase 1 sabi ng SBD book. Dapat meron kang breakfast, midmorning snack, lunch, midafternoon snack, at dinner. Ang maganda sa SBD ay hindi mo kailangang sukatin ang kinakain mo. kain ka lang. O, I said kain ha not lamon! Haha! Kain ka lang hanggang sa ma-feel mong busog ka na. Don’t be stingy on your serving but don’t overeat, too. ‘Wag gutomin ang sarili. Hindi fasting ang SBD. Kaya if you suddenly feel hungry after an hour of breakfast eh di mag-midmorning snack ka na puwedeng tuna rollups o mozzarella cheese stick o celery stuffed with cheese.

Nagluto ako ng pan-seared chicken breasts at adobong kangkong for dinner. So, I have two recipes for everyone! ‘Yung kinain ko nung breakfast na burger sardines at itong dish ko ngayong dinner. Yay, may pictures na ako! haha! Kahapon kasi nakalimutan kong mag-picture.

Wash your sardines, if in tomato sauce. Then, mash it with a fork. Add 3 eggs, chopped basil, and salt and pepper and mix it together. In a pan, put olive oil in a medium heat. Scoop three tablespoons of the burger mixture into the pan. Fry it like usual. Then set aside, 4-5 burger sardines.

In a bowl or big plate, assemble the cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuce. Put on top of a bed of lettuce the fried burger sardines. Serve it with thousand dressing on top.
