I am hungry that has been my thoughts most of the day; but I think it is because even though I was eating the right foods, I was not eating enough of them.
I have so many statistical numbers I am trying to keep up with this month I am still not sure how best to convey them all so bare with me.
This was my game plan today:
|Breakfast||eggs, toast, half apple|
|Am Snack||cheese stick and grapes|
|Pm Snack||celery w/ almond butter|
|Dinner||Shrimp and Vegetable Stir-fry|
|Late Snack||Bunco Night|
I had breakfast at 9:45; we got to bed late and thankfully Olivia slept in and so did I!
I think the next time this meal comes up I will make it the whole toast or maybe an extra egg. It just did not stay with me.
We had to go out grocery shopping, I hit whole foods, Sams, and Walmart. Then I went into Smith’s and Dan’s looking for Tahini and I think I am going to settle with ordering on Amazon and for this week I picked up black bean hummus at Dan’s.
We were at Walmart for my mid morning snack at 12:45 and I had brought the cheese stick with me and purchased the grapes. I resisted the urge to eat Mc Donalds or Deli fried Tso Chicken!
I think I should have had more grapes.
Then I came home unloaded the groceries and did the workout just prior to eating lunch. I did the first routine on the DVD which just uses your body weight it’s 20 minutes and I burned 140 calories according to the heart rate monitor.
I was not super hungry just after the workout but I ate my lunch at 4pm
It was a turkey, cheddar cheese, and spinach flatbread. It was really yummy, but next time I need to add in a side.
Then I rushed around like crazy trying to put groceries away, prep food for their dinner and some chicken I wanted Tim to grill before he leaves, made a sugar scrub that I was giving as a gift at Bunco and I had to finish gifts for family that Tim needed to pack to take with him when he leaves tomorrow. And squeezed in a shower before I ran out the door for Bunco.
Due to such a late start this morning, my afternoon food plans got shifted around a bit. I had planned to just have a little bit of whatever was prepared at Bunco as a late snack, but instead I let it serve as dinner and I missed the PM Snack. We ate at 7:15.
I had the salad and twice baked spaghetti (not photographed 6 raspberries). I did not eat the homemade bread or any of the little desserts that were present! I really wanted seconds, but I chose not to because these are not the most healthy choices.
After Bunco I came home to Olivia still being awake and no bath at 9:30 at night! UGH, Tim can be such a softie; they were cuddled up watching Batman. After we got her down to bed I had a late snack of celery with raw almond butter.
Next time I will probably double the amount.

For the first day of the Big Reform I am proud of the steps I have made. Here is my game plan for tomorrow.
|11:30||Am Snack||grapes and cheese|
|2:30||Lunch||Shrimp and Vegetable Stir-fry|
|5:30||Pm Snack||Grace Groups|
|11:30||Late Snack||Greek Yogurt or Veggie Sticks and Hummus|
I am not sure what will be available to eat at our first Grace Group Meeting, but I know that I am bringing fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil drizzled in balsamic vinegar so that will be my healthy choice with protein.
