Here is a horrible pic I tried taking with my phone - he moved so it looks kinda blurry:
I love frozen yogurt - I haven't convinced the husband yet that it's good, I think he just hears the word yogurt and loses interest... oh well, more for me =)
We went to the grocery store and I stocked up on plenty of good eats for the week. I did so well this weekend in the eating department and I bought some MiO to put in my water so I was drinking water all weekend. I think I will see a loss tomorrow =)
I've decided I REALLY REALLY want to try keeping a photo food log, I just think that knowing I have to take a picture and post what I eat would just make me that much more accountable. It is very hard for me to remember to take a picture before I eat though, for some reason. But here is what I've got so far today.
My new favorite snack/breakfast:
|Low-fat cottage cheese, fresh blackberries and chopped walnuts.|
|I love this yogurt, only 80 calories!|
|Sandwich thin w/oven roasted chicken lunch meat and steamed chinese vegetables.|
So that comes to about 550 calories for the day - that is pretty low as far as calories go. I am trying to stay under 1500 calories for now. I have tried 1400 and lower in the past and some days I feel like I am starving. So to get started 1500 is where I am aiming. So with that in mind, that leaves me with 950 calories for dinner and possibly a snack or something. I feel really satisfied though and not hungry at all but I am guessing by the time I get home I will be ready for dinner... I would like to try to stick with about 800 calories during the day leaving me around 700 for dinner, usually my biggest meal of the day.
So I am off to a great start with this challenge and I am looking foward to my weigh in tomorrow. I am not looking for a huge loss because honestly before this weekend I wasn't doing all that great. I have figured that I need to lose a minimum of 1.5 lbs per week to get to my 30th birthday goal, so as long as I lose at least that much I will be happy.
So hopefully you will be seeing more food journals and I can remember to take pictures! Hope you all have a great week! It is snowing here today, I am hoping it isn't too bad for the drive home, I hate driving in the snow!
