I had a bit of an out of control week last week, so Sunday went grocery shopping and got everything I needed for a well balanced, delicious, low calorie menu. I really enjoy making weekly menus, it makes me feel very in control of myself. Here’s what I ate today:
Breakfast: whole wheat bun with 1 tsp red roasted pepper hummus, 2 turkey slices, cucumber, tomato, .5oz mozzarella cheese, and coffee with almond milk - 185 calories
Lunch: Homemade chili (made enough for the whole week because I know I never get sick of it, message me for a fantastic recipe) - 285 calories
Snacks: 1oz almonds, 1 small apple, 3oz sugar snap peas, 8 cherry tomatoes, 2 cups of grapes (430 calories)
Dinner: 1/3 Pillsbury Artisan Whole Wheat Pizza with 1.5oz mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, and tomatoes (500 calories)
Yay I ran a 5k yesterday in 29:15!!!! Best time yet.
And then I went to roller derby practice in the evening. So naturally today I can barely move. Every part of my body feels exhausted. Trying to drink all the water.
Totally worth it.
Losing weight didn’t make me happier, it didn’t make me love myself more. All my problems didn’t go away. Losing weight made me realize that I can do what I set my mind to. Same smile, same happiness. Just a smaller size <3 #funeralformyfat #beforeandafter
So true. I am the exact same person I was 85 pounds ago. Losig weight will not solve all your problems. I promise.
Saturday morning breakfast is the best!
Pumpkin pancake with honey
Center cut bacon
Morningstar veggie sausage (I was surprised at how much this tasted like regular sausage)
1/2 cup egg whites with veggies and cheese
English breakfast tea with honey
Yesterday I made an upside down pineapple cake for the first time! 175 calories a slice (1/8 of the cake)
This is so pretty I don’t even know what to do with myself.
