Day 1 down! 🍾 My initial thoughts on this diet. It’ll be interesting for me to see if I feel differently about these thoughts in 20 days.
- It’s easy to get obsessive about making sure the containers are perfect (it may be my OCD, who knows)
- I don’t usually eat this much fruit! 3 servings feels like a lot!
- I felt satisfied and full enough all day
- I want more cheese.
Started the day out with
rew 'em in a pan with 2 tsp of olive oil (interesting to measure- I've been a little heavy handed in that), sauté til delightful. Made myself some eggs and had some kind of icky clementines.
You know how a couple in the bag just taste weird? I think I found them. <<
tal for breakfast- 2 💚 1 ❤️ 1 💜 2 tsp
Moving on… had my regular grande americano from Starbucks and a half of a banana (1💜) and went on with my day. Then came lunch time (my brain is revolving around food these days…)I wasn’t super hungry, probably because I didn’t work out today 😩 but I had to eat lunch since I knew I wouldn’t be having dinner until after work around 9pm.
Let me tell ya- this shit was JUST AS GOOD as Chipotle. I heated up one of my fajita bowls I meal prepped (see previous blog post) and added some goodies to it. Total for this meal was
The bowl itself: 1 💚 1 ❤️ 2 💛 2 tsp
Add ons: 10 black olives – 1 🧡
1/2 container 2% Colby cheese – 0.5 💙
Fresh salsa – 0.5 💜
Greek yogurt – 0.5 ❤️
Felt mostly satisfied through work, but was definitely ready (and conditioned) to eat when I got home. With not many containers left for the day and no desire to cook that late, I heated up a cup of my buffalo chicken chili I meal prepped.
Added a big ol dollop of Greek yogurt with 1/2 a blue container to finish that off.
This meal was good- maybe not my favorite. Too chunky to be a chili and too runny to make a wrap with, so I used my last yellow container by eating a whopping EIGHT whole grain wheat thins.
DO YOU KNOW HOW SMALL WHEAT THINS ARE?! Haha
Total (with my 8 crackers):
1.5 ❤️ 1 💚 1 💛 0.5 💙
All that hot sauce is “free”… but it ain’t heartburn free. 🙄 I’ll remember that.
Overall good day with 1/2 fruit left.
Thanks for readin. Good night, folks!
