LLCC Day 2

Today was much harder than yesterday for me. I felt REALLY hungry all day long and therefore kept snacking and then walking to try to keep my calories in check. I didn't eat anything horrible. I tried to keep my snacks healthy and around 100 calories. I still have 200 calories to use tonight and (lucky for me) a Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar is 210 calories. I'll take the 10 calorie penalty and call it close enough! I SWEAR this doesn't mean the end of the LLCC on measly day 2 - it just fits into my calories and I don't believe in total depravation.

So here was the breakdown for today:

I weighed myself this morning for the first time in a few weeks and was actually 3 pounds lighter than I thought. So my goal is now to lose 15 pounds by the end of October. Before the holidays. haha. From here on out I'm only weighing myself once a week. It changed my calorie intake down a few so my daily allotment is now 1,193.

Breakfast: 200 calories
Same as yesterday - cereal, milk, and strawberries

Lunch: 400 calories
Same as yesterday just more because I was starving - tomato, spinach, and mozz salad with chicken

Dinner: 220 calories
Turkey Loaf

Snacks - roughly 320 calories
1/2 cup cottage cheese
10 raspberries
Cantaloupe - 1/2 cup
1 Graham cracker
yoplait light yogurt

So I ate a lot of little snacks today and it was tough. I felt starving before meals. I'm not sure if it's my body getting used to all of this or what. I took 2- 25 minute walks today as well so that helped because I added on some calories for the walks.

Oh and yesterday I totally forgot to credit my wonderful friend, Rebecca for motivating me because she's recently lost quite a bit of weight and keeps on going and looks AMAZING. It's seriously inspirational and I am in awe of her dedication and perseverance through some tough hurdles. She taught me how to make Turkey Loaf last week and told me what she eats which has REALLY guided my menu for this first week. So, thank you Rebecca!! I need more recipes ;)

Way to go Jamie! The first few days are always the hardest For what it's worth, I find that upping my protien intake helps me with keeping the hunger somewhat at bay, especially first thing in the morning. I almost always start my day with a hard-boiled egg, some fruit, and a glass of fat free milk. I don't count calories, but I do (in theory, ha!) count points with weight watchers.

oh, and nonfat Fage (greek yogurt) is an excellent way to pack some extra protein in without the calories. :)
