Day 19

 

Still going! It seems I have definitely made a habit of exercising every day. I manage to fit it in even if I get interrupted 3x and half to cut it up. Just getting it done over here.

 

The food is a different story. I didn’t expect to be like a ravenous teenage boy with the breast feeding. I am just trying to surround myself with healthy food. And when UNhealthy food makes its way into my home- I leave it out so Ron will eat it. Which usually works.

 

Anyway, here is what I ate today…

 

Breakfast: 2 eggs, half a piece of whole grain toast, 1 cup coffee w 1% milk

 

Juice: celery, spinach, cucumber, apple

 

Snack: Red seedless grapes

 

Lunch: pasta w tomato, mozzarella, basil & olive oil. Sautéed broccoli and cauliflower

 

Snack: a few almonds and a fuji apple

 

Dinner: whole wheat pasta with asparagus, tomato, broccoli, spinach, carrots, mushrooms in a light cream sauce. 1 baked potato with whipped butter,

13- Stretch (I did the first 10 minutes of my Mirlates class here, but insert whatever stretchy exercises feel good to you.

 

 

What I did today that moved me forward: Drank more than enough water, got my exercise in despite odds, got more than enough servings of a variety of veggies and didn’t consume any sugary snacks. In fact, I have created a habit of not putting any extra sugar or salt on any of my foods.

 

What I need to work on: Perhaps the volume of food that I am eating, at least for weight loss. I think all this food is helping me with breast feeding and with keeping my energy up, so I am not going to knock it.

 

I am very curious to hear how YOU are doing with this.
