I got the idea for this type of post from The Lean Green Bean and I will go on to list the foods I've been eating this week with pictures if I have them.
Eek. I need to remember to take pictures!
|Typical Green Smoothie|
For breakfast I've been having my green smoothie: frozen banana, spinach, greek yogurt, one packet of stevia for sweetness, water, strawberries. So yummy.
|I forgot to take a picture till I was half way done!|
For lunch the past few days has been a pretty repetitive lunch. Sliced deli turkey on either a whole wheat wrap or on whole wheat bread. A side of pickles and either whole grain goldfish or tortilla chips.
SO yummy. I am so lucky that I don't get sick of repetitive meals!
I get out of class so late on Tuesdays that I just decided to cook some brown rice on my break, in my new rice cooker that I'm soooooooooo excited about! I love rice, but I'm not so good at cooking it. This definitely made it easier! I added the brown rice to a can of Amy's Veggie Soup. It is so delicious. I seriously am obsessed with that soup. And I know, canned green beans? Well I love them, and they're quick! I also had a side of carrots and broccoli from The Green Giant. They were ok, I don't think I will get them again. I've definitely had better!
|I don't know why the picture is so fuzzy|
So I decided on Tuesday, since it was a day of mainly sitting around at school, that I would take a calorie count of what I burned throughout a whole day. Well I started Monday night around 8 (yes this is when I'm climbing in bed) and continued for about 22 hours. I ended up having to restart it and just save the number and hours because after I worked out Tuesday morning (a short Insanity workout) it stopped working for some crazy reason and I had to reset it.
After taking into account the previous count I burned approximately 2250 calories over 22 hours. I'm glad to know that, it allowed me to up my daily calorie intake in order to lose weight effective.
I'm up a few pounds since before Christmas, which is no big deal. Just going to slowly keep my calorie count around 1700-1800 a day when I work out, to keep the weight loss going.
I'm only about five pounds away from my goal weight.
I think Saturday/Sunday I will wear the watch again, to see the number of calories burned on a complete rest day. No exercise except the daily walks I take Leo on. Which hopefully are around an hour a day. BUT that depends on weather and time permitted.
