Yeah, I can’t even believe it. Tuesday I was practically in tears because I was at my high weight, and not it’s Thursday and I’m at my low weight which I haven’t even seen in weeks. How did I do it? I stayed just under 1200 cals each day — and a real, legit number — no cheats. Which means I don’t think I ate any pb2 because that’s where the cals really add up for me. I only made 2 small changes really other than that — Tuesday I had the Southwest Salad with no extras instead of the Cobb, and last night I had the Market Salad with no extras instead of either having the extras or having the large Superfood side with the 8-piece grilled nuggets. Other than that, it was pretty much the same! Oh, and I didn’t eat anything lat-night other than a pickle on Tuesday night. I also ate everything a little earlier, so I had my Arctic Zero by 10:30. No exercise on Tuesday, one 2-hour ballet class last night. The usual drinks (i.e. Coke Zero).
Here’s what I ate:
breakfast: Great Value Strawberry Shortcake Lite Yogurt (80) with 1 scoop biochem vanilla whey protein (55)
Lunch: bai soda (10), 1 cup (accurately measured) broccoli (31) with 3 oz lite tofu (45) — steamed with braggs, salt & pepper
snacks: Great Value lite strawberry shortcake yogurt (80) with 1/4 cup of Mom’s homemade granola (which I keep at work) and a Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch Balance Bar right before I went into the prison to teach
dinner: Chick-fil-a Spicy Southwest Salad (no dressing or extras — 420 cals but might have been less — don’t know if that counts the extras or not), Caramel Arctic Zero with no toppings
Total – 1136 cals
breakfast: 3 oz lite firm tofu (45) with 2 egg whites (34) on a low-carb tortilla (50) with slim life tea
lunch: salad — 2 cups salad mix (10), 5 baby carrots (23), 5 sugar snap peas (7), 2 grape tomatoes (3) with Walden Farms Ranch. A 16.9 oz coke zero and a cup of black decaf coffee at the meeting. Great Value Strawberry shortcake lite yogurt (80).
snacks: before nap (3:00) — 2 agave-sweetened kamut cakes (62) with 2 tb homemade almond butter (96) — this measurement might have been slightly cheated; after nap — 1 dill pickle spear and 1 jello cup (5); before ballet — 2 agave-sweetened kamut cakes (62) with 2 tb Naturally More peanut butter with oil poured off (stored in pre-measured tablespoons)
dinner: Chick fil a Grilled Market salad, no dressing, no extras (180) with a medium diet lemonade with no ice (20). Brownie Blast Arctic Zero at 10:30 (300) with a diet Sunkist (that had caffine in it unbeknownst to me and kept me up all night)
no late-night snacks even though I kept waking up very hungry. That’s how I knew I was losing weight. 🙂
So there you go! That’s the diet to follow if I ever need to drop some weight fast. Now hopefully I can keep it off until the performance on Sunday!
