YAY, I lost 3 pounds this week without even dieting...AWESOME, I LOVE NOT DIETING!
Breakfast at 7:30 am started with this glorious bowl of 1/2 C. steel-cut oats, 1/2 C. whipped cottage cheese, sprinkle of sliced almonds & 2 strawberries for garnish....ohhh and cinnamon of course! YUMMY!
Mid-morning snack: 9:45 am small fuji apple & slice of turkey
Lunch 12pm: well, I had planned to eat the wrap I had, but I was at a work meeting with the director and he ordered me lunch so I felt obligated to eat it. It wasn't the best thing I could have eaten, but wasn't the worst either so oh well. On the past I would have said, "well, I didn't eat what I planned and it wasn't perfect so the rest of the day is a FREE DAY"! Bad thinking! not today though, I ate the delicious turkey sub on wheat with extra dressings (who knows how much) & moved on and then was hungry again for my snack this afternoon! I am proud of myself for not blowing the rest of the day :)
Mid-Afternoon snack 3pm: 1/2 C. nutty granola that I whipped up yesterday, so good and oh so chewy!
Dinner 5:15: this is what I plan to eat the rest of the night before my meeting. 1 La Factoria Tortilla low-carb wrap with 2 slices tirkey, bell pepper, lettuce, cucumber, mustard, pepper. I also had a plate of steamed broccoli for extra filling since i have to go back to work for another meeting :(
I love these wraps! They are so soft and delish & only 100 cals in the large size!then a few minutes after din I was still so hungry & needed something more so I had a Lt N' Fit yogurt topped with granola, not bad but then i think I probably consumed another entire cup of granola! ahhh way too much, its so addicting for me. I am going to start combining it with a more complete protein when I eat it so I get more full. LESSON LEARNED! At least I wasn't tempted by the deep fried mexican food at the meeting since I had already eaten what I use to call "bad food" & then caved in and ate whatever I felt the rest of the day :)
