Day 1
My Thoughts: Wow I really get to eat A LOT!!
Total Calorie Intake: 1587

Today was great! I spent all day on the 13th preparing my menu for the week (trying to keep it under 1900 calories) I really enjoyed finding filling foods within my calorie range. I think I went to school for the wrong thing. I so should have been a diet menu planner. I LOVE doing this. I haven’t been hungry yet! My energy level is up. I just have an overall good feeling. It’s amazing what exercise and an improved diet will do for ya.

Here’s my schedule
**WORKOUT: 30 Day Shred 

Drank 8 oz of water

 


BREAKFAST= 440 Calories

 

Baked Spinach & Salsa Omelet and Small Fruit Smoothie

 


This was VERY filling. I use this recipe with these adjustments ( I adjusted the cooking time. Use 2 eggs, 2 T. soy milk, 1 T flour, 2 T. cheddar cheese, 1 cup chopped baby spinach, 2 T. Salsa, salt & pepper.) I sauteed the spinach first. This was so good. My toddler said it was egg lasagna. Next time I’ll add some fresh garlic. For the smoothie, I blended 1/2 cup yogurt,  2 T. soymilk, 1/2 frozen fruit.

Drank 8 oz of water

Strawberries & Cool Whip = 94 calories

 













I ate 9 strawberries with a 1/4 cup of cool whip. I was so hoping I could find that chocolate cool whip, but this was still a good snack and very filling.

LUNCH:

 

Grilled Turkey Avocado Sandwich, Veggie Chips & Chocolate Chip Cookie=356 calories

 













I used whole wheat bread, 2 slices of roasted turkey, slice of tomato, couple slices of avocado, spinach and sliced cheese. 1/2 a serving of veggie chips and only 1 soft batch cookie (toddler at the the other one) This lunch was so good, even though I wasn’t even hungry.
