My Journey - The Word of the Day Is...
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
I made a HUGE discovery this week and with some confirmation from a friend of mine, am working to put it into my healthy eating (He said, "Don't use the word 'Diet'")...Monday morning, I ate one of my Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls (The Delight kind) and an apple for breakfast. For the FIRST time in about FOREVER, I was FULL all morning!! I wondered how that could be...then I noticed something on the box my breakfast bowl came in...22g PROTEIN. AHA!! I wasn't 100% sure if it was JUST the protein or if throwing the apple in there helped too, so that's when I turned to my friend who knows a thing or two about fitness/eating.
The really interesting thing is that yesterday, I had a breakfast entree that had only 12 grams of protein and I ALMOST made it to lunch. Was hungry about an hour before. SO, that tells me 2 things:
1. I need MORE than 12 grams of protein to be full.
2. I'd BETTER stock up on those breakfast bowls!
I'm sure the Walmart checkout guy was amused by the number of breakfast bowls I purchased tonight. (I'm set for at least a week at work!) I also bought some other frozen entrees that I can take to work with me and not have to wonder what I'm going to eat on my lunch hour. Subway has seen me twice already this week...
And, a little victory...
Tonight was the first time in a LONG time I wasn't tempted to grab a Kit Kat when I checked out. In fact, the only sweets I bought was the box of 90-calorie brownies that I'll take to work with me should I be short on my protein again...not likely to happen, at least not at breakfast!
Have a Terrific Thursday, All!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
