One thing that helped me out today was preparing my food the night before. That way I have time to make something deluxe if I want and not be rushed throwing things in my bag.
For breakfast I had:
1 Thomas whole grain English Muffin
.5 oz deli turkey meat
.5 oz. cheddar cheese
1 small container vanilla yogurt
445 calories, 63 carbs, 10 fat and 29 grams of protein.
This breakfast took me a while to eat at my desk, so I didn’t need an a.m. snack!
What better way to get more veggies in then my favorite, a HUGE stir fry
I had pea pods, carrots, celery, onion, broccoli slaw, and 2.5 oz. chicken + 2 TB of my favorite Thai peanut stir fry sauce.
443 calories, 53 carbs, 14 grams fat, and 15 fiber
No afternoon snack either. My friend and I walked again during lunch, and this plate took me a while to finish. So GOOD!!
For dinner, another way to get more veggies, a HUGE salad. I had chicken, feta cheese, pea pods, broccoli slaw, celery, onion and a few peanuts.
PLUS, I had something I haven’t had in a long time with dinner….skim milk! I had 2 cups. My kids were like “You’re having milk?” because what I usually have is a diet coke.
My HUGE salad with the 2 cups of milk came in at:
482 calories, 42 grams of carbs, 15 grams of fat and 44 grams of protein.
Tomorrow will mark the end of the first week of eating more fruits and veggies and I can tell you a few things that are different
*Cravings much less for bad foods
*I LOVE huge portions, I don’t feel like I am dieting at all
*I feel better

BUT, I have to give her props because she looked great, she’s down 85 pounds!!!!
What did everyone else think of the show tonight?
