First full day on the new plan

I have to say it was fantastic. I'm motivated again. I'm excited and energized. I ready to tackle the challenges a head to find that thinner me.
Yesterday, I got up at 1:15-1:30 am. Yep sleep pattern is steady but on a whacked out time table. Dr. Stevenson gave me some tips to get it where I want it. It's just going to take some time.
Anyway, I got up at around 1:30 am and headed to the kitchen for what I call meal 1. Yummy pork roast and a big bowl of cabbage. New counting system is 0 carbs. Several glasses of iced tea sweetened with splenda (liquid) and stevia also 0 carbs.
At about 5:30 I had a couple of cheese sticks and a ounce of roasted almonds. That set me back a whopping 4 net carbs, but it held me until 8:30. Had a cup of coffee with cream and a slice of Cranberry Orange flaxbread with cream cheese, with mom. We just kind of hung out at the kitchen table over our coffee and bread and talked. Something we don't do nearly enough.
Round about 12:30 I made grilled cheese sammies and cream of tomato soup. Oh my gosh it was so good! It was like having the real thing, only better. I will post my simple recipes next. But believe me it's next to nothing. So I had a great big cup of soup and sandwich for lunch ( another 6 carbs). The creamy tomato soup was very filling as well.
Then just before bed I had 1/2 a chocoPerfection bar.
I drank around 32 oz of iced tea, 48 oz vinegar water and a couple small glasses of Diet Dr. Pepper. ( ok I tried but I have cut down from 4 liters, not too bad right?) The bloat is just about gone, my bgl's are in the 80 but my bp is up. Not what's going on with that, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it.
I also got in about 25 minutes of core, resistances and flexibility exercises in. And boy am I sore after just 2 days of this. But it's a good sore...giggle
So that' my first Full day on my new plan. I know it's early but it does seem to be working for me. The test will be to see if I can break through this stall.

I'm so glad it's working for you, girl! May it continue, and may the pounds fall off. And your tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches sound wonderful!
