FOOD – 1,205 Calories
I have been pretty hungry the last two days from cutting my calories down to around 1,200. So in an attempt to remedy the situation I am going to add in an afternoon snack. 3:00 tends to be my hungry time, so we’ll see if this works. The idea is to try to stick to around 250 calories for breakfast, 450 for lunch, 150 for the snack, and 350 for dinner. I’m hoping this will help, because being hungry all afternoon and then at night time isn’t going to cut it. I’m also trying to find more filling recipes that will stick with me longer. I would love any suggestions!
Breakfast 9:00am – 340 Calories

My husband ended up getting off work early today, so I skipped Zumba and we went to the gym to run together. It is amazing how much longer an extra 30 seconds seems when running 90 second intervals compared to 60. But I did it! Week 2 Day 1 C25K was a success! Like I said above, I even wanted to keep going but had to get back to the house and get things done before bed. I’m trying to work on a way to better fit everything I want to do in my day.

So have you noticed a pattern with me yet??? I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD! I could eat it every day! Unfortunately, much of my weight gain can be chalked up to Mexican food…the fried kind. As I have been losing weight I have found ways to still get my Mexican food fix, without all of the fried calories. My shrimp fajitas were awesome today, and way lower in calories than my usual Chimichanga or Nachos smothered in queso with a side of cheesy potatoes & refried beans. What is your favorite ‘unhealthy’ food? What ways have you found to make it healthier to be able to work it into a healthier lifestyle?
