This is going to be a tough challenge for me! I'm actually kind of embarassed to post my [googled] photos for the last couple of days. I overindulged Big Time on Super Bowl Sunday. My husband and I hosted a party for about 20 people at our house. The good news is that I prepared a lot of the food and made low fat substitutions where possible...the bad news is that I ate WAY too much.
I made low fat Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins (on sparkrecipes.com) to have for breakfast this week. They turned out so yummy! I had a couple of them with coffee for breakfast.
While I was preparing the sandwich tray, I made myself a roast beef sandwich on a whole wheat dollar roll (trying to go light for lunch since I planned on eating my face off during the game :(
For dinner/Super Bowl I had a smattering of dips. I love dip:
A delightful Queso. So wrong, but so tasty. Definitely a treat.
Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip. I'd never made it before and subbed in low fat cream cheese, etc. Still not the best for me, but I impressed myself with how yummy it was!
I also drank 3 of these:
I love normal beer, but those Pomegranate Mich Ultras are way too easy to drink! I stopped drinking alcohol during the 1st quarter of the game because I started to not feel good - not from the food though! I've been battling a cold this week and my ear started to hurt :( So I switched to diet coke and water.
Go PACKERS!!! It was a great game!
EDIT: Forgot the yellow and green Packers shots my crazy Packers Fan Friend brought to the party!
I had more applesauce oatmeal muffins, heated up in the microwave (so good! and a nice change from my usual egg-something) and coffee for breakfast.
Busy at work and no time for a snack before lunch. We had lunch brought in by a drug rep, but the selection was surprisingly good - grilled peppercorn chicken, red potatoes, steamed broccoli/carrots, and salad. I drank more water (AVOID sugary sodas!).
Not hungry for a snack this afternoon (and busy!). Stopped at CVS for some sudafed and avoided all snacks. Got home and drank some more water!
My husband has a meeting tonight, so I was on my own for dinner....so a piece (okay, two) of Papa John's pizza and a spinach salad because I spent my Martha Stewart cooking skills over the weekend.
But I'm still in my calorie range for the day (shocking with the pizza really, but looking back the rest of the day wasn't so bad).
B. A. D. the last couple of days...but planning for Better Tomorrow!!
