Today was decent :)
This may end up being a super short post, maybe a super long one. I don't really know, just kind of rambling.
1 piece of honey wheat toast w/ 1 tbsp smart balance - 150 cals
Coconut greek yogurt - 110 cals
Dark chocolate granola thin - 80 cals
Chocolate Slimfast shake - 180 cals
Apple - 130 cals
String cheese - 70 cals
6" Oven Roasted Chicken on 9-grain wheat w/ lettuce, spinach, onion, pickles, and lite mayo - 360 cals
Banana - 105 cals
Cashews - 160 cals
Homemade Stirfry - 420 cals
Total Intake: 1765 Calories
So, intake was high, but fairly healthy, so I'm good with it :) Got 4 servings of fruits/veggies, got some healthy fats, whole grains, etc. I also drank about 70oz of water, so today I think was decent. No exercise :( But tomorrow will be much better :)
I'm starting to realize I don't have to do perfect the first day I start eating well. It's a gradual change. Today I had NO beverages other than water, really limited the sweets, and stayed under 2000 cals, so I'm happy. I don't have to go back to eating 1500 cals per day right off; maybe if I make smaller changes, they will actually stick.
Also, I don't have to reach my goal weight my January. Yeah, it would be nice, but this isn't a race. All I need to do is lose; it doesn't have to all be right away. As long as I'm doing it, it doesn't matter how long it takes.
Yeah, made the stir fry myself for the first time; not fantastic. lol I'm NOT a chef! Plus it was chicken stir-fry, and the raw chicken made me wanna puke. I OVER cooked it to make sure I didn't UNDER cook it, I used way too much onion, the sauce was burnt, just, no. lol! I shall try again tomorrow, and we'll see what happens.
Going to avoid red meat most of the time from now on. I'll still eat it once in a while, but for the most part, sticking to just poultry, and may start eating fish, maybe not. I don't know.
I eventually want to become a vegetarian, and then a vegan again (was for a while, not sure why I stopped). But I want to do it gradually so it doesn't all hit me at once and I quit.
That's all for now; I'll try to update tomorrow. Wanting a snack; only ate half the stir-fry so my intake wasn't QUITE as high as I posted, so I think I'll have some graham crackers with peanut butter, and maybe a piece of string cheese.
P.S. Bought some size 13 jeans today; they're about 10 lbs away from fitting :) Hello motivation!
