OK, day one down and I feel pretty good about what I did today :-) I hope I can keep it up. Here are the days stats:
Morning Weight: 230lbs
For breakfast I had a sliced Gala Apple (75 cal, 0g Fat) dipped in Strawberry Yogurt (100 cal, 0 fat) and 2 Biscuits (total of 200 cal and 8g fat)
Breakfast Totals: 375 cal, 8g fat!
For lunch, I had a salad topped with a can of drained tuna (the only fish I'll eat lol) and a little fat free blue cheese dressing (190 cal, 2g fat, 25g protein!) along with a banana (105 Cal, .04g Fat)
Lunch Totals: 295 cal, 2.4g fat!
I had 2 stalks of celery topped with a little bit of peanut butter for an afternoon snack.
Snack Totals: 209 cal, 16g Fat (damn peanut butter lol)
For dinner, I made some awesome chicken breasts baked with some balsamic vinegar and seasoned with a little bit of garlic powder and pepper. (150cal, 1.5g fat, 35g protein) I also made some brown rice (150 cal, 1g fat) and some plain steamed green beans (25 cal, 0g fat).
Dinner Totals: 325 cal, 2.5g fat, 40g protein.
So far, my daily totals are as follows:
5.6g saturated fat
SO...I'm under my calories for the day, and well under my limit for fat intake. So....my question for you food/diet gurus out there, how bad is it to be 500cal under your daily limit? I will likely have another yogurt tonight or a banana...
Because of the rain today, I didn't get out to get a bunch of exercise, but hopefully I can get on the wii fit later tonight and fool around. :-)
I feel really good about my choices today. I won't lie, Aly's macaroni and cheese at lunch looked REALLY good...LOL But that's not to say I didn't enjoy the food I ate. I forgot how yummy celery and peanut butter is haha I do need to get some low fat/low sodium peanut butter though...
My one gripe is:
CELERY HAS CALORIES?!?!? Seriously?!?!?! It's freaking WATER! LOL
OK...rant over :-P
So...so far so good :-) I may have a light beer tonight to celebrate since I have some calories to spare ;-)
Thanks again for all the support everyone!!!
