Today was fine, I really like not worrying about breads and pastas and rice. My 16 year old is on board after I showed her the shopping list of what was allowed, she wrote down what she likes and what she is willing to try. I was excited for her. She isnt over weight but can stand to get rid of 10-15 pounds. So I will go shopping tomorrow for her stuff and I am sure I will come home to find out she ate crap all day lol. My 13 year old wont even discuss it, she said her poptarts are her lifeline in the morning. I dont know if I want to pick that battle right now, I will just take my victory with my other daughter right now.
So for food today:
B: a banana and coffee with hwc and a splenda (I am working on this)
L: Another big salad with leftover grilled chicken from our kabobs that I froze. Lots of veggies, avocado, and apple cider vinegar
D: Wasnt really hungry but my husband grilled hamburgers so I ate one hamburger patty with nothing on it.
Thats it, I wasnt hungry all day, other than what is considered normal at meal time. I am concerned that I am not getting enough of everything. My food calculator showed 1,119 calories 57g carbs 60g fat and 86g protein. I dont know how this balance is? I suppose I can drop the banana and throw in some nuts? I am not a big meal eater, although it is nice to sit down and eat until I am full without worrying about what I am doing. My problem is that I dont seem to be eating enough even though I am full. Any suggestions or comments on my numbers would be appreciated.
I am going to skip my hwc in my coffee in the morning and then by the weekend I will eliminate the splenda......maybe. I love my coffee, more than I loved my grains.
