Well I’m exactly the same. To be honest I thought I’d be down despite the fact that I was surprised with a delicious fried food themed birthday party this weekend and a absolutely fantastic chocolate cake (hopefully I’ll get a post about that up tomorrow or next week). I thought I was doing really well besides that. I tried to eat salad for a few lunches and I just felt SO hungry since on those nights we ate dinner on the later side (of course). I need to figure that out better because I do like getting my veggies in and I do it better at lunch. But of course I didn’t log so I can’t prove that I didn’t eat too much being hungry on the salad days. But I pulled out my trusty CS-100s so it’s in view so I can see for sure. We’ll see. A pretty average day of food for is like below. I’d love to hear what you guys do and if you have any ideas for snacks for me
10-11 juice and a TLC granola bar
12:30-1:30 lunch: salad with chicken (kinda of wendy’s side salad size, with half the dressing and a small amount of cheese) or half a pack of ramen with curry powder veggies and chicken added, half a sandwich and half a single serve bag of veggie strays or a mighty kids meal (this is pretty much what I limit myself to for lunches during the week)
3:00ish snack: flax seed chips, veggies straws (if I didn’t have them with lunch), wasa cracker and half a slice of cheese a small cookie or piece of candy (like kiss size) (that’s what it’s been lately I need tips)
6:30-9:00 dinner: this varies a lot but it’s usually 600-800 calories
10:-12:30 sometimes I need an after dinner snack depending on dinner usually I’m drawn to nachos, chip or a cookie
As you can probably tell I’m a savory tastebud person. If I eat something sweet I’ll probably also eat something salty to finish it off. I was thinking on salad days maybe plan a bigger snack or add a small baked potato, I’m not sure. I was eating the sandwich and chips every day but kinda got burnt on that. Also I’m thinking veggies and yogurt dip or humus or popcorn for snacks. Yeah any tips are welcome
I’m 5’5 but have a small frame
(I think I’m going for 135 and we’ll see from there)
