WIAW:  Low Calorie Edition

This week, I said I was going to refocus my energy on accomplishing my goals – health and accomplishment goals.
I’m not on a restrictive, cabbage-soup-only diet but I am trying to moderate my meals and do more of what I’m supposed to do so I can get the results I say I want.

This was Monday’s eats, low-calorie style:

Breakfast was a poached egg with tomato slices and baby kale leaves on a whole wheat thin. No oil, no butter, no mayo, just a little salt and pepper to taste.

  

My midday snack was apple slices with chunky peanut butter. I could eat that all day, which is also why I forgot to snap a pic before it was all gone.

Lunchtime, I treated myself to a delicious homemade lentil soup that was just red lentils boiled with seasonings and frozen vegetables.

 Yummy in a very different way – I could taste the health in every spoonful.  
Dinner’s reward after a long evening walk was a burger with delicious toppings. Yup, that’s some blue cheese sauce. Somehow, I convinced myself I deserved it. Regardless, Yum!


Nighttime snacking, there was light butter popcorn on the couch


Drinks are water, water and more water. I try to finish at least 4 refills of this bottle every day. The focus for the days’ meals is on low calorie and when I put these items in my Lose It app, I am netting about 1500 calories.

 I am trying to do it all this week so I can get some good results.

Anyone else here trying to squeeze the diet in the summer months?

    I’m counting calories right now too! Trying to stay between 1200-1500 at the most. I don’t know for sure because I don’t have a fitbit yet, but I think my daily workout burns anywhere between 250-300 cals.

      Good for you. For my height and weight and moderate activity, Lose it allows me 1800 calories per day but if it’s not a running day, I try to keep it around 1500. It’s amazing how easily some of my favorite foods blow the budget though. Food tracking is a definite eye opener.

    You do so well on your diet. PS I still don’t know how to execute a perfect poached egg!

      Haha. I don’t worry about it being perfect. It’s just for me. I’m not picky.
