The reason I'm posting another day... & probably a few days... is because I know when I started looking at this plan, I was really intrigued at finding posts on what people really ate in life. So I think this may help someone... hopefully....
Day 2 was just as good as the first...
Still learning from it & seeing what real sizes of portions should be... & more important, finding that it really is enough!
So let's look closer at Day 2...
|1 Red - 1 yellow - 1 green|
Snack 1 (10:15am)
|1 Purple - 2 tsps.|
|1 Blue - 1 Red - 1 Green - 1 Yellow|
Snack #2 (4:30pm)
|1 red - 1 purple (used 1/2 banana)|
I got in the workout today. Upper Body Fix...
|....even make your arms feel like they can't lift a thing!|
OH MY GOSH... I thought, how hard can it be for my arms? By the end, I had to go down to lighter weights & my arms felt like spaghetti... I haven't had my arms drained that badly in a long time.
(6:30pm) Supper time
I wanted to make a real meal today... & at first I thought, oh no, this isn't going to be enough. I was a tad disappointed in the sweet potato & putting it in the yellow & how much it really was. It was basically half of a medium size sweet potato. Good side of that, I have the other side already packed up for a warm up snack tomorrow
Used a veggie burger for my protein & some veggies.
.... & in the end, I was very well content. Not stuffed - but I can stay I was full. It was a good feeling.
(7:45pm) Snack #3 - Grapes
Finished off the night with trying to get in more of my containers... fruit for dessert took one more of my purples...
& in the end, I was still left with 2 reds, 3 greens & 1 purple left... & 4 teaspoons. I could have a whole other meal basically....
I have to say, logging my food, I'm loving seeing how spot on the nutrition is...
I just can't get over 91 grams of protein... I'm usually struggling to get in 50 a day. This is fantastic!!!!
Today will be exciting for me to see what its like eating out. Wednesdays are the hubs & I "date lunch" where I meet him at Subway. I've got my containers with me... I'll be the weirdo in the corner tearing my food apart to measure things. We'll see how it works.
Here's to another day!
