Everyday I will be logging what I ate and drank for the day:
wake up 7:30am: Hot water with lemon, and I did add some honey to this. I asked my trainer and she said not to do that but just to get used to it. So that is what I will do. The lemon water will jump start your metabolism for the day.
Breakfast 9:00am: 1 piece of plain toasted gluton free bread (found in your freezer section) and 2 fried eggs. Also a dash of hotsauce to taste. I found the bread to have an odd texture, another adjustment I am sure to get used to in time.
Snack 11am: 1/2 cup light cottage cheese, and 3 tbsp of mild chunky salsa. I know this sounds like a weird and gross combo, but I promise you it tastes delicious!
Lunch 1:30pm: 1cup baby spinach, 1 small avacodo diced, 1/4 tomatoe, 1/4 cucumber, and 2 tbsp of Kraft raspberry vinegrette dressing (my fav). This salad was amazing. Avacodo's are one of my favorite things ever to eat, so adding it to the salad was a no brainer for me.
Snack 3:15pm: 2tbsp of Hummus and sundried tomatoes, and some sliced ham.
Dinner 5:30pm: i simmered some onions with some chopped garlic in a skillet, with 1 tbsp of EVOO,then I added 1/4 of an onion and browned them. I then added a small boneless skinless chicken breast. I cooked the chicken in with the mixture and then added 1/4 of a can of tomatoes mixed with herbs. I simmered this and then served it over 1/2 cup of brown rice. It was super yummy. I think next time I will add some hot sauce, or lemon juice though at the end for some extra flavoring, as I found it to be a little bland.
I remembered not to drink while I ate. I worked on smaller bites and taking the time to eat enjoying my meals and focusing on those alone and not anything else that was going on at that time.
I drank almost 2 litres of water today. I am working my way up to 2.5 litres. I hope that by the end of the week I will be at that goal.
All and all I found it very easy to eat as often as I did. I had preplanned out my meals for the day, so it took the thinking right out of it. I look forward to my meal adventures for the next few weeks.
I love to cook. So I am looking forward to coming up with recipes and healthy alternatives to things, and I will be sure to share them with you!
