Hooray! Down another 1.8 lbs this week. That's 7.2 lbs in the last 3 weeks! I was not kidding when I said I was ready to say goodbye to the 160's for good. It feels good to be making progress. I wish I were making the progress through food an exercise instead of just one dimensionally through food. I am still tucked away in my bat cave everyday trying to crank out this thesis. must. graduate...I think I repeat this in my sleep.
My food Monday sucked. I stayed around a 4 on my fullness scale. I wasn't really paying attention to what I was eating. I worked on my thesis all day and sent my advisor 1/3 of the thesis for edits last night at 2am. Needless to say- exhausted today! I wish I could say I was far enough to feel good, but I still have several more full days of work before I'm where I need to be to graduate. Keep sending thoughts my way! Breakfast was a drippy egg sandwich 4pts and 204 calories.
I had a snack of humus and veggies (I went back for seconds so there was a little more than this) 2pts and 100 calories.
Little Bear hung out around my feet under the desk all morning until I brought his pillow into the room. He was nice company.
Although my eats weren't ideal diet-wise, they were SUPER TASTY! I completely recommend trying them (maybe just not all in one day). For lunch, I put my freshly made arugula pesto to work on some whole grain linguini with grape tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and steamed asparagus. I added ~2 Tbsp of heaving whipping cream to the pesto before sauteing all of the ingredients together. I am definitely making this again. 6pts and 300 calories.
My snack was unnecessary. I picked up a soda when dropping off the car for an oil change and got a small fry from Wendy's for 7pts and 340 calories.
Dinner was a repeat, but with added chicken and less rice noodles. The hubby really enjoyed it so it is male approved! 8pts and 480 calories. In the mix is rice noodles, steamed broccoli, steamed asparagus, sauteed onions and garlic, 1/4 tsp peanut butter, teriaki sauce, grilled chicken, and scrambled egg. Talk about protein heavy pasta.
I had a chewy granola bar around midnight for 2pts and 100 calories which is not pictured.
