7:00 – Scrambled egg whites with red and green peppers. Also had two slice of 15 grain toast with a very light spread of Smart Balance.
10:00 – Tangelo
12:00 – A great lunch! Baked chicken pieces, cashews, steamed broccoli, red peppers and green peppers over a bed of brown rice. If you haven’t seen the picture take a look at:
2:00 – A Tangelo and fresh strawberries.
4:00 – Had to sample some almonds while portioning out food into baggies for this coming work week.
6:45 – Red meat for the first time in a week. Not real true to the healthy eating I now prefer but also trying to fit in with regular family meals when I’m not in charge of preparing them. I’m having steak stir fry with Chinese vegetables, (canned – way too much sodium), on a bed of white rice, (I had brown rice earlier when I was cooking).
Thoughts for the day: I survived my days off without much nutritional damage. I lost 11.8 pounds in the first week – not a bad start, (actually it worked out to six days).
As a side note for those of you that don’t know it I have two boys serving in the military. One is currently serving with the Marines in Iraq. Today the NH Union Leader ran a story about him. If you’d like to take a look then here is a link:
