I know reading about what I eat everyday can get old but I do it for me so there, ha!
I had 2 eggs with 2 slices of wheat toast for breakfast with green tea. I decided to pan steam my eggs with a lid instead of flipping them. It's been a while since I have made them this way and as good as they came out I need to make them this way more often. I had my lemon water first thing when I got up. I am on my 5th cup of green tea and have a little less than half of my water jug to go. For lunch I had a sandwich and for dinner I had a thin sirloin steak with green peppers, onions & mushrooms. I did a great basement workout last night and still have yet to workout today but I will before bed. My Mom is amazed that she can already notice me losing more weight since I have been back on my daily exercise/diet routine. It feels good when someone notices! Even if it is just my Mom :-) I am so proud of myself for keeping it up! I am to the point again where I just do it and don't think about it.
I haven't been snacking in between meals but I saw this recipe online for these things called "Smudgies" - They looked and sounded really good so I got stuff to make them. It's a low calorie, guilt free snack that I guess is supposed to feel like you are eating an ice cream sandwich. You take 2 ripe bananas and mash them up with chunky peanut butter. Then you take graham crackers and break them in half and start constructing your sandwiches by putting the banana mixture between 2 graham cracker squares. After you do that you freeze them and then enjoy! I will be making mine in a day or two. I am waiting for my bananas to get a little riper but I will let you guys know how they turned out.
Here is the recipe I am going off of: SMUDGIES
I will be going grocery shopping again this weekend so I am hoping to get back to eating more vegetables/fruits. In the beginning the only thing processed I would eat was lean cuisines and I didn't eat them as often as I do now. I have taken the easy way out by having my diet to be mainly soups/frozen meals. Granted I still stay within my daily calorie limit I would like to eat more fresh made meals. For breakfasts I want to make these egg muffins on a whole wheat english muffin with a slice of american cheese. I saw an easy way where you make a bunch of them and then freeze them. I also have been having the taste for chili so I looked online and tweaked a recipe to my liking and will be making a batch of turkey chili for the first time. I hope it turns out good! I have never worked with ground turkey yet so I am excited to see if I can even tell a difference. I am thinking I will make the chili sometime next week.
