I felt lazy today and really didn’t want to do my walk, so I enlisted my hubby and the kid to get me off my butt and we walked to the playground. Almost 3 miles in 50 min. Happy I got it done.
I went to Target today and they were having a ‘buy one get one 50% off’ sale on their bathing suits so I bought two tops. My BFF and I are going to Cancun in April and honestly I think I went a little crazy on bathing suits. In the fall Khols was having a huge clearance and I bought a a few for pretty cheap, like less than $5 each. So here is what I have…
So what did you come up with for the pop challenge? Here is my list:
Avocado – 1/2 – 1 net carb 4 grams of fiber
Artichoke – 10.3 g fiber, 4 net carbs — I love artichokes!
Broccoli – 1 cup 5.1g fiber, 2.8 net carbs
Brussel sprouts – 10 sprouts – 7g fiber, 10 net carbs
Raspberries 1 cup 7 net carbs and 8 grams of fiber
Orange – 1 medium 7 g fiber, 14 net carbs
Blackberries – 1 cup 7.6g fiber, 6.2 net carbs
Almonds – Raw 1/4 cup – 5g fiber, 2.7 net carbs — This a bonus because it’s healthy fat and 8 g of protein
Chia seeds – 1 oz 10.7g fiber, 1.3 net carbs – I need to try some chia seed recipes
Ground flax seeds – 2 tblsp 4g fiber, 0 net carbs
I even got 14 grams of fiber today, not quite 25 grams, but I’m moving in the right direction.
Breakfast: decaf coffee w/half & half, coconut oil, and cinnamon. 1/2c raspberries w/ 1 tbsp heavy cream and 1/2 packet of splenda.
Lunch: GNC Total Lean 25 protein shake, left over broccoli/cauliflower casserole
Snack: 1 tablespoon Barney’s Vanilla Bean and Espresso Almond Butter —- freaking yum!
For dinner I made taco meatloaf for dinner. It was so good. I wasn’t sure what to do for a side dish, so we ate it like taco salad.
1057 calories, 22g net carbs, 78g fat, 60g protein, 96oz water, 50 min walk
Little low on my protein again, I had planned on a whole serving of meatloaf and that would have gotten my protein in the right range, but I could only eat half of a serving.
Tomorrow is Monday…. who is excited for Monday? Not me! But I do have my 2 week post op appointment tomorrow, so that’s kind of exciting. I will get my first fill schedule, I’m excited about that. I can’t wait to get my band working.
