Calorie counting and Exercising goals: I had the goal of counting my calories every day(and staying within my limits for 14 days straight and exercise 5x each week to remind myself that I CAN get results when I am consistent. I did very well the first week - I didn't miss a day of tracking or exercise and I lost 1.8 lbs! Then the next week, I didn't quite finish 2 of my days of tracking and missed 2 days of exercise and my weight stayed the same. So basically the first week was a really great reminder that if I am careful and consistent with my calories and exercise, I lose weight. Now I just need to stick to it each week!
Here's what's on the menu this week:
Monday~ Breakfast for Dinner
Tuesday~ Chipotle Burrito Bowl, tortilla chips - I didn't get a chance to try this one last week and I would like to :)
Wednesday~ Loaded potato Soup (321 calories, 11.1g fat, 3g fiber per 1 1/4 cup) and side salad
Thursday~Green Salad with Grilled Chicken and Mandarin Oranges and Almonds (220 calories, 9 g of fat, 2 g of fiber, not counting dressing, serving size 1 3/4 cup), crispy bread
Friday~ Salmon with Lemon and Dill, grilled asparagus, and grilled carrot fries (320 Calories per fillet)
