I've been kind of successful in my new diet. I have not adhered solely to the diet of greens, fruits, low fat dairy, and whole grains. I am totally better about what I put in my mouth, but I am not perfect. That's okay.
For the past few days, my breakfast has consisted of a shake made from unsweetened almond milk, a scoop of protein powder, and a bunch of frozen berries. Does it taste like Jamba Juice? No, but I'm okay with it. Lunch has been a small portion of something I made earlier in the week. This week it is a bit of rigatoni and a few turkey meatballs. Dinner has been more or less grazing. This is where I struggle. I come home from work and although not really hungry, I start snacking. For example, yesterday I had a small frozen pizza, a handful of corn chips, and then a several spoonfuls of ice cream. I didn't eat anything for the rest of the evening, but what I did put in my mouth was a bit excessive.
B is living on mostly fruits and salads. Good for him. We both eat "regular" food on the weekends. I made a pot of pasta with meatballs on Saturday. I've been eating the leftovers for lunch. Just a tiny portion of what I used to eat, but it is still real food. Last week, I had mostly salads. I haven't noticed much in weight loss, so I'm obviously not doing something right, but I'll figure it out.
Tonight I think I'll make an open faced egg sandwich on homemade bread. One egg, one slice of bread. That should hold me for the rest of the evening.
