Breakfast was two scrambled eggs that I put into half of a leftover red pepper, on the bottom of the pepper is a couple tablespoons of marinara sauce, and 3/4 ounce of cheese on the top – then put under the toaster oven. With a side of strawberries – this plate is light on calories, but it stuck with me! 274 calories 15 fat, 17 carbs, 4.6 fiber and 17 protein.
Tony was near my office around lunch time. I never turn down an opportunity to have lunch with my husband! We went to the Assembly, which hands down has THE BEST burgers and Reuben sandwiches. I actually thought for a second “my weigh in isn’t until next Monday, so I can work it off before then!”
They cook the food right on the inside of the bar on these grills – the smell is amazing alone.
But I thought of my inspirational video from yesterday and said “Arthur wouldn’t order the Reuben!” I ended up getting a grilled chicken breast, only I only ate 1/2 of one slice of bread, half of the breast with 1/2 cup of baked beans. No fries!
Lunch estimate is: 451 calories, 14 fat, 34 carbs, 7.5 fiber and 48 protein. Thanks for lunch Tony!
I had defrosted a small beef tenderloin and remembered that I bought fresh green beans. I wondered if I could grill them? I tossed them raw in about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil, salt and pepper and cooked them along with the beef.
I put them in a bowl and splashed them with a bit of white balsamic, lemon juice, lemon zest and more salt and pepper – these were tasty! My 4 oz of beef, 4 oz of potato and green beans (I added 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil to the calories between the potatoes and green beans) – dinner came in at 459 calories, 27 fat, 27 carbs, 5.7 fiber and 26 protein. I loves me some rare meat!
While I didn’t get in my lunch time workout, I am happy with day one.
- 1237 calories, 59 fat, 85 carbs (nice!) 17 fiber and 93 protein
- average blood sugar was 162
- 30 minute daily stretch
Things I didn’t do:
- Didn’t eat any food leftover in the kitchen while I was cleaning up (confession time, I do that a lot!)
- Didn’t eat any snacks at work.
- I was a bit hungry in the afternoon but made myself a 50 calorie iced coffee, and that hit the spot.
- No wine. I just had vodka. Kidding!
I have my quarterly diabetes doctor appointment at lunch today, so I am up early to hit the gym.
I loved reading the comments yesterday about my Inspirational Diet. This next video? If this doesn’t motivate you to move today, I really don’t know what will.
Make it a great day!
