write it down

feeling sparky today! I had an amazing work out with my trainer yesterday and have another one planned for tomorrow.
I know that it is always best for me to put my plan in writing to make it easier to stick with it, so here I am typing away!!
I have been enjoying smoothies for breakfast: frozen cherries, banana, unsweetened almond milk, and spinach. Not quite a green smoothie, but going in the right direction and low calorie. I even made one for my hubby this morning. He loved it.
Now here is the hard part... Lunch and dinner and snacks! I am going to list some choices and their calories for a pick and choose up to 1100 calories throughout the day (the smoothie is about 150).
string cheese 80cal
butternut squash yogurt 100 (have you had this? it is amazingly delicious)
sweet potato yogurt 120
soy beans 1/2c. 100
2 large mushrooms 10
10 cooked Brussels sprouts 100
1c. chocolate almond milk 120
BPC spicy lemonade 130
1/2c. rice 90
These are things I have in my fridge right now. All good choices. My entire list adds up to 1280 calories!
Items to pick up this week:
fresh green beans
more baby spinach!
Last night for dinner I had 1c. rice, 1/4c. peas, and 1/4c. sliced carrots seasoned with soy sauce and a sprinkle of nori rice seasoning. about 225 calories and satisfying. I then had room for a cup of almond milk for a grand total of 341 calories for dinner.
My goal is to keep this type of healthy eating in mind and keeping it on hand in the fridge at all times to make the hardest meal and my most vulnerable time that much easier to manage.
