I haven’t weighed myself since I gained those 4 pounds. I am waiting to weigh in on Friday. I worked out today already and am feeling much better! I also noticed today that my heat rash is FINALLY gone! I am so happy for that. It made me feel really icky.
According to the picture to the left I have lost the amount on the second shelf so far! I am amazed at what 20 pounds looks like though! Gross! You can click on the picture to make it bigger if you can't see what it says.
I have been trying to eat more balanced meals and today was the first day that I forced myself to eat 3 meals. For breakfast I had green tea w/lemon juice, a banana, string cheese, a piece of my multigrain bread with a scrambled egg on top of it and then for lunch I had a lean cuisine & my dinner is listed below! I have still been drinking water with every meal. Sometimes i'll let myself have a half of a 0 calorie powerade. With everything it puts me at 1,079 calories for the day. I have room for a snack later on tonight. It all works out perfect. I feel like I'm eating more but it's actually better for you to do that vs. just eating one meal a day.
The picture at the end was my dinner! Very good! 440 calories all together…
Sara Lee “45 calories and delightful 100% Multigrain bread”: 90 calories for 2 slices
4 oz. of boneless skinless chicken breast pan grilled: 110 calories
2 tbsp of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbeque sauce: 70 calories
1 cup of steamed garden fresh green beans: 77 calories
1 cup of steamed garden fresh pea pods: 101 calories
1 Inner lettuce leaf: 1 calorie
All prepared with my Family Dollar 0 calorie cooking spray! I grilled the chicken with my stove top grill pan, toasted my bread and after the chicken was done I cut squares all on the top of it and took a serving of barbeque sauce and spread it over the breast into the grooves I cut. I put my sandwich together and lightly salted/peppered the beans and peas!
I also found this really helpful phone app for my calorie counting! It lets me document all of my weigh ins and my daily intake of food and exercise and does the math for me. It is perfect for my situation!! Looking at some of the fast food joints and their nutrition info makes me sick! Did you know that one large fry from McDonald’s is 500 calories?! That is more than the dinner I just had! Or one plain roast beef sandwich from Beef-A-Roo is over 300 calories! One McChicken is 360 calories and a McDouble is 390. One KFC chicken pot pie is almost 800 calories and get this; a large McDonalds chocolate shake is 1,160 calories!!!!!!!!! If anyone wants to know how many calories are in their fast food leave a comment and I’ll look it up for you!
