Hey Jen...there were a few inconsistencies I found with the Maintenance menu when comparing it to others...but one interesting thing is pickles..on Maintenance, they are a "free" item meaning as much as you want however often has you want...but very high salt content per serving?! That baffled me.
I am hanging in there...this is my PMS week...so bloating, munchy all the time, cravings, etc...Willpower is most needed during this week alone! I keep gum in my mouth, and found these sugar free candies I LOVE that have nothing...not even sodium, so I suck away on those
I am working on snacks in the evenings at the moment...when I review my food journal, I see that the closer I get to bedtime, the more calories I consume, which of course isn't good. I usually need nothing mid morning, and mid afternoon I might have a Kashi bar, but in the evening? There may be 2-3 items I write down and it really needs to be adjusted. Evening snacking has always been a challenge for me. Most of the time, I do pick good choices...I think..LOL
Well, off to prepare dinner for the family...a couple of times a week I make a pasta dish or a mexican dish...I am just careful what I have those nights...It is nicer cooking one meal more now rather than a meal for my diet, and another meal that suits the kids...We are all eating very similar now, and it is great. They will even ask me what kind of protein should we have for dinner tonight mom? LOL I love it!
