Every successful day begins the night before with preparation and planning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I know this....but sometimes it is so hard! Like, right now. I should be prepping my stuff for tomorrow, but I'm lounging on the couch and scrolling through Facebook. No bueno!
On the plus side, I was super on top of the prepping last night! I made a breakfast consisting of a ham and cheese roll, some chopped up veggies and a pickle. Weird and delicious.
For lunch I prepped a spinach/kale/romaine salad with cucumbers, a couple of cherry tomatoes, green onions and some shredded beef that was left over from dinner. Tossed in a zesty Italian dressing, my lunch rang in at less than 3 net carbs, 230 calories and a whole lot of taste.
For snacking throughout the day, I kept a little bag of organic raw coconut flakes and raw almond slivers. I didn't eat a ton of these, but it is nice to keep me in line when I would normally be snacking on junk food.
I rounded out my afternoon with some string cheese and a laughing cow swiss cheese and was great until dinner. (Yes, I do have a tiny addiction to cheese)
For dinner we had pork chops stuffed with cheddar and bacon, with a side of delicious steamed veggies. The pork chops were pre-stuffed from Smith's, only $6 for three of them! It was delicious as well as a delicious deal.
Overall, today was a success. I can't wait to step on the scale tomorrow and see how much progress I've made.
Also, this post just inspired me to get off of my butt and pack for tomorrow. Good things come of blogging all of your food.
