Lbs Lost So Far: 3
Lbs Left To Lose: 24
As promised, I took pictures of everything I ate in a day in order to keep myself accountable. It really helped to kick off the week, and from there I feel like I made really healthy choices for the most part. I tried not to be totally extreme.....for example I had a cup of ice cream one night because I just really wanted it. And I never let myself feel starved. I got out on 2 good walks this week with the double stroller while wearing the baby. I was even going to attend hot yoga with my sister but we all got sick with a cold so I skipped it. Here are the pictures of what I ate one day:
Breakfast: Whole milk plain yogurt topped with homemade granola. (Recipe here) I love having this granola on hand because it has just the right amount of sweetness, plus it has lots of nuts and seeds in it for healthy fat. I also had a cup of black coffee.
Snack: Half a banana
Snack: Does anyone else love eating a bowl of cereal before bed? It's definitely a habit that Adam and I picked up a few years ago and it's hard to quit! These days I'm trying not to eat after dinner unless I'm truly hungry. On this night I was, so I had a very small bowl of grape nuts with milk. Once again, the picture vanished from my computer.
So as you can see, I've been eating lots of mini meals throughout the day. I've heard this is good for your metabolism, and it makes me feel like I'm eating a lot! I will try to photograph another day of food this week to share next week.
