Since I’ve gotten into a new weight range, I’m also in a new calorie range. Before, I was supposed to eat between 1,350 and 1,700 calories, and now I should stick between 1,200 and 1,500 calories. I think I did a good job at this for my first day.
I was really craving fruit for breakfast, so I had lots of watermelon and a serving (3/4 c.) of Honey Rice Puffins.
Since I had a somewhat light breakfast, I was wanting a heavier lunch. I cooked up an egg, some onion, 1 oz. prosciutto, and 1 oz. goat cheese. I then put it on a flat out wrap with lots of spinach. On the side, I had more fruit– cantaloupe and grapes.
Sorry this picture is so blurry; I really hate posting bad pictures. Anyway, I had some carrots and 1 tbs. Barney butter as a snack after I did a light workout (30-minute walk/jog video + 10 minutes of pilates for abs). This is the first time I’ve tried almond butter, and, although I was skeptical, I actually really liked it.
For dinner, I had 4 oz. of “island chicken,” 1/2 c. couscous, corn on the cob, and mashed cauliflower. This meal was so delicious and filling.
Dessert was the last of the HG cinnamon buns. I will be making these again soon.
