Vengence for Veggies!

Saturday, November 13, 2010

I have gotten an eye Opener this week!!!

Ok on this, journey I've been taking to eat healthier and loose a few pounds I have started counting calories for the first time in my life, and I'm finding I'm getting better and better at it! Now the first few wks when I started this I found that It was sooo hard for me to get in the protein that I'm supposed to be eating, and it's still difficult but I'm getting better at it.

I've been noticing this for a while now but it really hit me this wk! Veggies are soooooo my friend! They can be really tasty, they are way low in calories and high in various nutrients. So If I've had a bad calorie morning, instead of starving myself in the evening I hit the veggies!!!! Like for example yesterday My husband brought me home this bigggggg 20 oz cup of coffee, you know the ones I'm talking about, the stuff made by professionals, steamed milk, the special syrups etc. all in all this one coffee was more than 600 cal... and I'm thinking OMG! I have to have this , but!!! OMG it's half, yes half of my calorie intake for the day!! What will I do?? So i made spagetti squash for dinner!!!! basically I switch the spagetti noodles out for the squash, and because the squash is soooo low in calories I was able to eat 2 cups of it for probly less the calories in a half cup of reg noodles, So I filled my stomache and guess what! I even managed to stay in my calorie range!!

So keep in mind! VEGGIES ARE YOUR FRIEND!!!!!
