Well I am back again telling apart of my story.  Why? Because no one else can do like I can.

I am back in the Saddle.  I am going on a very strict plan about what I eat.  This is not strange to me but  I took a break from my weight loss challenge. However, this break cost me dearly because it was about 20 pounds.  Now I am back in the saddle.  I shall call it ReGenesis! (can you hear the music?) lol

This is serious though.  The reason why I started this blog was to kind of talk about this reshaping of my life.  I wanted to have a place where I kinda of could talk about this ReGenesis, publicly.  This way I can air out the Highs and Lows, also share my strategy.

Lets start with today:

Today actually begun last night because I did alot of my preparation.  I cooked my Oats that I had for breakfast this morning last night.  The reality is that mornings are hectic and you do not always eat right even though you have good intentions.  So I cooked a pot of Oats last night, that I will use for breakfast and dinner for about two days.

For my meals today, it was green salad.  While the oats cooked, I prepared my salad ingredients.  I cut up all my veggies and secured them in containers.  I did enough for two days.  This way when I am hungry and ready to eat I can cut my prep time in half.

Lots of water is the order of the day.  I am cutting out juices and sodas from my diet.  I have a 32 ounce bottle that I will drink atleast 3 times filled today.  Yup, that is alot of water but tends you keep you feeling full most of the day.

So there you go.  That is the plan for the day.  Here is the actual breakdown on the meal plan:

Wake up    -     Drink Water (32 oz)
1st meal (7 am) -  2 cups of Oats/ tablespoon of Peanut butter. Prepared with 1 cup Almond Milk.
                               Total caloric intake:  424

2nd meal (11 am) - Side salad/1 tbsp - dressing/ side of fruit
                                     Total caloric intake - 151

3rd meal (2:30 pm)   - Repeat of 2nd meal

4th meal (5:30 pm)   - Repeat of 1st meal

5th meal (7:00 pm)   -  Serving of Mixed veg melody
                                      Total caloric intake: 203

Total Calories for today - 1353 (lets hope I stick with that lol)

This is going to be tedious I know but I thought I would atleast I would go through this for today to really cement my determination for a turn around.  So as I typed this I had my 2 meal of the day, chewing ever so slowly to make it feel like a big meal.

Decide. Commit. Succeed.

I will be taking my challenge to self on twitter. So follow me on twitter, @bjornjb
