I had a water bottle with 2 scoops of Accelerade while riding. Against the added sugar, but I burned about 1000 calories on the ride and felt I needed some calories to not bonk.

morning snack: almonds/dried fruit
lunch: BIG salad (same as yesterday)
afternoon snack: Larabar
dinner: roasted pears and yellow potatos/ half a can of Progresso lentil soup
will have some Teavana herbal tea tonight
Not feeling a whole lot different so far. I am missing some of my little treats like coffee, glass of wine, the pieces of chocolate I might eat while making dinner. But...feel like I am getting enough food. Not too cranky in giving up the coffee.
On the way home from school before my bike workout I felt like I was pretty tired and I didn't know how the workout would go. But once I was on the bike there was plenty of energy.
