Since I last posted 2 weeks ago, I have lost 3 pounds. Finally some weight loss!
Lbs Lost So Far: 17
Lbs Left To Lose: 10
I thought it'd be fun to show you all not only what a day of eating looked like this week, but what MyFitnessPal looks like. I took screenshots of the calorie breakdown for each meal and my nutritional stats for the total day. According to the app, I am allotted 1250 calories per day. That seems a bit low to me, especially because I am nursing. So I typically "allow" myself to go over a little bit. I don't want to starve myself, whether I am breastfeeding or not! I've been eating somewhere around 1300-1500 calories per day for the last couple weeks and I have been feeling great. I'm surprised, because this doesn't sound like a lot of food to me, but I have been satisfied every single day. Never overly hungry. In fact, I feel like I've had more energy since I've reduced my portion sizes.
Ok here we go.
Breakfast: Boiled Egg, Coffee with half and half, vanilla yogurt
This breakfast was a bit smaller than usual, but I was in a rush. Even though I only consumed around 200 calories, I didn't get hungry until 4 hours later.
Lunch: Tuna salad with cucumber and lettuce on whole wheat wrap, Pineapple and Strawberries
Snack: Multigrain Cereal with Milk
I was fixing Lucas an after-school snack a few hours later and got hungry, so I had a small bowl of his cereal. This is his favorite cereal.
Dinner: Bacon and Tomato Pasta, Green Beans
And in full transparency, I had a small bowl of vanilla ice cream after dinner. I have noticed I have a hard time hitting my daily calcium goal, so obviously the ice cream was necessary.
Here is my macro breakdown for the day, minus the ice cream.
Here is the nutritional breakdown for my entire day, again minus the ice cream:
So clearly I am fascinated by these nutritional stats. Do they interest you or bore you or confuse you? Have you ever used MyFitnessPal or something similar?
