Hi y'all! Hope everyone had a good Christmas/Holiday. Mine was good- the BF really spoiled me this year with video games and earrings
Kiddo got lots of presents, so that's good
We had gifts at home, at BF's dad's, then at my sister's. I'm actually surprised my weight is the same as before Christmas. Didn't go too far from plan. Drank lots of coffee, but I always do. Couple of "small" desserts (cake/pie) and ate 2 hearty meals on Christmas day. I'm really surprised that eating lots of little Baby Ruth candies didn't do more damage. Anyways, its MONDAY, so Fresh Start for everyone!
1/2 c. dry oatmeal and 1/4 c. raisins for breakfast today. I made a 1-week meal plan.. hoping I can stick with it but need to go shopping.
Here's kind-of what it will include (# is how many servings):
Breakfast- 1 grain, 1 protein, 1 calcium, 1 fruit
Snack- 1 fruit or 1 protein or 1/2 each
Lunch- 1 meat, 1 grain, 1 veggie
Snack- 1 calcium, 1 fruit, 1 protein (2 of 3 or 1/2 of each)
Dinner- 1 meat, 1 veggie
Grains will be brown rice, high-fiber cereal or wheat bread. Proteins will be meat (chicken/fish/etc) or nuts (almonds/walnuts/etc).
Nice to see a post from you. Hope things are looking up for you. Congrats on Hawaii- you have time to make major headway. Especially planning ahead and if you hit the ground running... results should be good
Last challenge I learned that it'll take dedication and a combination of exercise and eating clean. This coming challenge, I'll work more on improving my diet (eating clean, REAL, not processsed foods) and continuing my workouts. Special K bars, though easy and convenient, are probably not good for daily breakfast (with all the sugar added). I also realized that 1 can of Light Monster Java coffee has 15% of your daily sodium... wow... another easy/convenient food that's not as good as it seems. These are still good treats for keeping me close to plan, but they should be treats instead of every day. Regarding treats and fast-food deprivation, I think I'll allow myself fast food once a week (probably a kid's meal) IF I stay on plan all week until then (exercise and eating as planned)- in case I really have to have it, but with the knowledge that it'll knock my weight off track for 1-2 days.
Interested to hear everyone else's plans
