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