food intake

I realized I haven't been posting many food journal entries - mostly because I figure it'll bore the socks off you - but it does keep me accountable. So far I haven't "broken" my healthy eating plan at all... which I'm so thankful for! Here's yesterday:

  • breakfast: 1 homemade whole wheat toast/ peanut butter/  natural jam
  • snack: homemade carrot juice
  • lunch: salad & boiled egg
  • snack: slimfast shake w/ banana
  • supper: curry chicken, peas, 1 wheat chapati
  • snack: 1 (100 calorie) hostess snack pack

I drink water almost constantly throughout the day every day. Also I've exercised for at least 20 minutes 8 of the past 11 days that I've been on this journey to health. (so much easier to say "diet", but I'm trying to shake that mentality!)

I feel pretty good about the balance of protein, whole grains, fiber, healthy oils, fruit and vegetables I've been eating overall. The only thing I do want to 'eventually' eliminate is the slimfast and artificially sweetened treats. But for the moment they are helping!

I have lost more weight - (yes, I've been peaking at the scale!) - but I won't report it until my weekly weigh in on Friday. :)
