Ok, so the challenge didn't officially start until today but since I took pics of my food yesterday (minus breakfast), I'll go ahead and post them. Not very exciting, but helps me stay accountable. Tuna salad w/ low salt wheat thins.
4 baked chicken wings, separated, and a sweet potato w/ 1 Tbsp of ICBINB. This has to be my favorite vegetable to eat during the Fall. I never think to eat them in the summer.
15 baby carrots at 3 cals a piece....45 cals of crunch. And ungodly amounts of water...somewhere around 130 oz by the end of the day.
These were DELISH! I coupled 2 recipes I found....Pam's Creamy Buffalo Chicken Lasagna recipe at her food blog "From Apples To Zucchini", listed on my blogroll....and a Petite Lasagna recipe from "Can You Stay For Dinner", on my favorites list. I counted the cals of all ingredients, overestimated, and came up with 195 cals each. I had 2 of these last night for dinner. Well....
make that 2 of them minus what my baby ate. She loved them, too. :)
I took pics throughout making this recipe to show a step-by-step, but didn't have the time to download them this morning before leaving for work. If anyone is interested in the recipe and seeing how it's made, leave a comment, and I'll download the pics tonight.
Day 2 and I'm solid so far...taking my pics. I had 2 boiled eggs for breakfast, 150 cals...and a honeycrisp apple a few minutes ago...80 cals. Drinking the water...and I looked at Allan's chart on his last blog post. I started at 249 lbs....if I hang in for the entire month, I have the potential to reach 232 lbs by Dec. 8th. Mind-blowing really....but drinking ALL THAT WATER has a lot to do with flushing a bunch of garbage out of my system. I totally get the water thing. I'll be honest. If I can just see the 230's by the end...that will put a huge smile on my face. I just want to keep looking forward...one day and one choice at a time. I want to leave the 240's behind. Good Lord, I've visited them WAY too many times over this last year. I'm soooo over it.
Have a great day friends. :)
