Hello friends!!! I've had a successful end to Day 5, and we're only 2 DAYS AWAY from our first weigh-in!! Isn't this exciting????? I can NOT wait til Friday morning!! Make sure that all of you stop by and leave a comment with your weight on Friday, no matter what your normal weigh day is. Our list has grown to 27 participants, and it's easier for you all to leave your weight here on Friday's post. I've got a list with all of your names, blogs and starting weights down...I'll update it with your first weigh-in on Friday after you pop over!
I'm really tired tonight. I totally shredded my muscles in the gym tonight and I'm wore slap out. I was starving after I got out of the gym and got home, so I loaded up on protein...I've heard that's good to do with weight training.
Breakfast was at 8am...you guessed it...another egg white scramble!! lol
3 egg whites, 4 oz grilled chicken breast, less than 1/8 c. of feta cheese, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, black olives.
At 11am I had 1 c. of pineapple mixed with 1 c. of cantaloupe
I had a tuna salad sandwich at 1pm. 1 can of Star Kist solid white albacore tuna, 1 boiled egg, 2 Tbsp. of lite mayo, a little diced onion & dill pickle, on a whole wheat sandwich thin.
Right after I ate the sandwich, I had a lemon torte parfait. Good Lord these things are heavenly. If you haven't tried them, and you don't mind some processed food once in a while...these are a MUST!
I had my heaviest meal at 4pm today...another one of my sister Amy's suggestions...and it was delish! I sauteed 6 oz. of chicken tenders w/ some fresh mushrooms. I added some adobo, garlic powder & onion powder. (Pam informed me that Adobo seasoning has some salt in it, but since it's a blend, and not straight salt, I'll be using it more than the straight salt. My goal is not to eliminate salt completely from my diet...just to eat it more moderately). Then I cut up 8 spears of leftover grilled asparagus and added it to the pan when the chicken was done. Then I added in some water to scrape off the chicken and mushroom bits from the bottom of the pan and poured in 1/2 can of 98% fat free Campbell's cream of mushroom soup to make my sauce. I poured this over a 2 oz. portion of multi-grain angel hair pasta and sprinkled some oregano on top.
I had a little chocolate craving today, so at 5pm I had a Hershey's Dark Chocolate Nugget w/ Almonds.
After the gym, at 8pm, I loaded up on protein. I had 3 egg whites, 3 oz. of chicken tenders, 1/8 c. of Kraft 2% shredded cheddar cheese & some fresh mushrooms.
I'm about to fix my 2 c. of decaf coffee for the evening. The 2 Tbsp. of creamer is 30 cals.
Total Calories: 1701
Water Intake: (4) 32 oz. glasses of water
Exercise: 1 hr. 10 mins. at gym - 40 mins of strength training/30 mins of cardio
