Excellent day for nutrition

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Yesterday was a good nutrition day, and today followed that pattern.

I feel like I'm finally starting to get a grip on myself.

This morning I had a protein shake and a banana; when that wasn't enough (I only used half a scoop) I grabbed a handful of broccoli and carrots, with light ranch dressing. I'm totally digging being able to have twice as much dressing with that,and I really can't tell the difference in taste.

For lunch, I went to tea with my mom! This tea room we go to is always great for portions and healthy. I had spinach and tomato quiche, salad, and split pea soup.

Dinner was just as good. I took an old favorite recipe of mine, and substituted the usual cut steak for ground turkey. I need to try it with fresh turkey! Anyway, that cut the calorie count in half, and it was super filling. Had it with whole wheat angel hair! Even with seconds, it was only 700 calories. :)

Overall, I'm proud. If I keep up this pattern, I'll definitely lose this week! (by the way, that fluke 187 pounds HAD to be fake. I've been at 190 since.)

    WTG! When the changes and information start clicking together it can seem almost magical how things start happening.

    It's so awesome when you start to enjoy your food and realize how much of it you can have and still stay in range-- When you find the right substitutes (eg ground turkey for beef, light ranch for regular), you can have an awesome meal-- a large one, in range....

It's weird, but I look forward to my meals now, because I know they are good for me, they are on my plan, and they taste good-- but I swear they taste better knowing they keep me on track, ya know?

Great job. Keep on sharing-- the substitutions give me great ideas!

    I haven't had much luck in finding spaghetti squash here. I'm a bit fan of spiral slicing zucchini into angel hair pasta, though!

    just look at the 187 as a preview of coming attractions emoticon

have you ever tried spaghetti squash? I love it. And you can eat a LOT without piling on the calories.
